Answers :

Hi,
\015\012if the light remains Orange, Possible In Standby/Sleep/Hibernate Mode.
\015\012Try pressing And Holding The power Button For 4-5 seconds Or more.
\015\012If this Fails, remove the power Cable, remove side-panel ( Unless Warranted ) locate the silver cmos battery, on the motherboard. remove the battery for 10 seconds, replace and repower and startup. failing this i,d suspect the ram/memory or cpu.
