This generally signify , that the memory modules are detected in the system, but there is a memory failure.
You can try the following steps

  • If you have one memory module installed, reinstall it and restart the computer.
  • If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
  • If available, install properly working memory of the same type into your computer.

Orange light on D

Ha! We used to have loads of these - if I recall, it was a network adapter error - otherwise, check the motherboard for blown capacitors, they'll be bulging or even spewing yellow gunk out the top. This was a very common issue and Dell should replace the board free of charge.

Can anyone tell me what the orange light on the power button means? I am using a Dell GX270 and the PC will not start. You can power it on but nothing happens.

If you are getting an orange which we call in technical terms amber colored light it means that your PC required either the power supply to get replaced or the motherboard (Blinking amber or steady amber) both are guiding towards the same issue. It is better you first check it with the replaced power supply if not then motherboard is the sure shot solution

When put power cable in orange light comes on power button and wont boot up

Orange light usually comes only if your system stays in low power mode or sleeps, So u get orange light immediately when u switch on the system, try pressing the ESC Key on the top left corner of the Keyboard, and if not try pressing the power button again...

If not working,tell me Whether do u get any sounds in system?

And What u get on the screen, when u switch on?

System couldnot respond after booting dell gx270

Try to check connections between the monitor and the System Unit or what they called CPU. Turn on the computer you must hear 1 beep means the computer start normally. if you haven't, try taking out any new installed hardware but not the video card if you don't have onboard video device and turn on your computer again.. if problem still exist keep in touch.. TY

Orange light on Dell GX270 power button

A solid orange light, usually indicates an internal power problem but just in case try reseating the memory. Also its become a habit on a GX270 to check the capacitors to make sure they aren't bulging.
