Please remove the all the memory and poweron the system. If you hear a beep sound, system board, and processor is ok. else you can suspect processor or mother board.

Fluids might have been licked inside the keyboard making it have failures, or if the cheap is dead you might need to get a new keyboard, try using another keyboard if it works quite properly then yours might be mechanically faulty and need technical assistance or even just replacement would be better.

SOURCE: dell optiplex gx270 wont reboot.
Most likely it is the power supply then. I would recommend trying another power supply first. That is the first component to get damaged.

For the Optiplex 320, a flashing amber light with no sound indication can mean 3 things.
1) Your power supply has failed
2) Your motherboard failed, most likely from a bad capacitor.
3) The front panel board (where the power button is located) is faulty or not connected properly.
I've worked with 10's of 1000's of Dell Optiplex's over the past 8 years and the flashing amber light is well known as a tell-tail sign of one of those three failure. Always start your trouble shoot with a PSU tester, then inspect the motherboard for domed or split/leaking capacitors...then on to the front panel which would require another panel and ribbon from the same model.
