The problem is the motherboard, check the capacitors with an X on top, next to the cpu fan and look for a yellow powder or indications that the capacitor top is about to burst. If you see any defective capacitors contact Dell and explain to them that you have a motherboard with defective capacitors and they will replace it for free even if the computer is out of warranty.

Check this tread.. it could be your motherboard or a component on it that may not be working, try reseating everything connected to your motherboard ,then test.. try replacing the power supply and test.. then replace memory and test.. if no your motherboard or cpu are the problem

Dell GX270 has D amber light


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard.
Remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Gx270 tower mother board amber LED solid on


If the fan is not spinning this can be the issue ...but it can also be the motherboard itself ..if you have the possibility try to change the fan ..cause if it fails to start the computer will also fail cause the cpu it will shut down the system instantly if it has no cooler working ..(gets to the shut down temperature in one sec or so ) If it seams that it is trying to start ..but , like I said , it shuts down ..just try to change the fan ...but it may be a issue with the power supply or the motherboard as well...

You either have a power supply problem or a motherboard problem. You can try to replace the power supply first since that is less expensive then a motherboard.

Loud "jet engine taking off" type sound


If you changed out the power supply then the only other device that could be making that noise is your CPU cooling fan. To be sure, open the case and disconnect the CPU cooling fan plug from the motherbrd (MAKE SURE POWER IS OFF) and see if the noise stops. Don’t worry about the “Fan Failure Error” when you turn on the computer. Just hit F1 to continue. Don’t leave the computer running without the fan plugged in longer then necessary. After tying this procedure, please contact me for further diagnosis.
