Are you sure it's not red you're seeing instead of orange? Disconnect power. Re-seat the RAM circuit boards inside the computer. Check for possible loose parts inside. Check all the fans and remove accumulated dust. Check the CPU - if possible remove the heat sink and inspect the silicone compound for dryness - reapply new compound if it's dry. The power supply may be bad as well - check that.

    I have the same problem, I think the asker meant that the orange hard drive light next to the green power light is on, constantly on, the fan is going but it's not starting up.
