SOURCE: Orange light on Dell GX270 power button

I agree, the Optiplex GX270 is infamous for MoBos going bad. The capacitors have a manufacturing flaw, and up until February of 2008, Dell was replacing those boards for customers for free if it was found that the capacitors were the culprit. I just found a board yesterday with this problem. A sign that the capacitors are bad is either a buldge or they will be leaking an orange-rusted looking substance (primarily capacitors near the CPU). Symptoms of this problem include the PC rebooting itself randomly, and/or getting a BIOS error saying there was a thermal event.

SOURCE: Dell (ie optiplex 330) would not boot with the orange light on

Do you have a lot of accessories plugged in? They may have overloaded the power supply and if this is the case you will need to buy new power supplies. If this is not the problem, check to make sure that the computers have plenty of ventilation in the back. If they don't, they may have overheated and melted quite a few different components.

SOURCE: my dell optiplex 330 can not switch on, whan I put

If you are getting an amber light flashing, your power supply is faulty.

If it is a solid amber light, you motherboard is faulty or one of the componants are faulty.

I would suggest giving Dell a call. They would beable to pin point the problem and give you a quote. Some of their componants are non standard and can only be purchased from them.

You could try reseating all your componants on the last resort but it is unlikly to help.

A solid amber power LED indicates a problem with the motherboard, or something attached to it. (I've seen a bad mouse cause a no post before) Disconnect all cables except power, turn on system see if any LED change. If using a UPS, connect power direct to the wall. If still no change, open case, remove any expansion cards, try again. If still no go, disconnect power cables to all drives, try again.
If still no change, then replace the motherboard
