Question about Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop
I just purchased refurbished optiplex. the machine will start - the fans run and the light in the power button turns a steady green. The lights on the back of the unit light up A- green B- amber C- green D- green and the light on the mother board is steady amber. The light on the monitor will go from amber to green momentarily, the screen stays black. Any Ideas?
unplug the system
open the case
look for a battery and take it out
take out the memory (rams)
wait ten minutes
press power button 5 times
put everything back in
and boot it

Yes you are apsolutely right, i was also having same problem, i.e amber power indication & blank screen, i googled it lot & finally found solution here. Thanks to DARKLORD1. I have followed the following steps to resolve this issue.
1> shutdown the system
2> remove the power cord, cmos battery and RAM
3> waited for more than 5 mins
4> then attched the power cord only
5> switched on the power button continuously 5 times
6> Then amber indication on power goes off & green indication came & system is booted with beep sound.
7> Then I shotdowned the system reattached cmos battery & reseated RAM.
