Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX240 PC Desktop ?

My dell optiplex won't switch on.

\015 THE ORANGE LEAD ON THE BOARD GOES ON WHEN I PLUG EVERY THING IN AND OUT BUT CANT GET IT TO SWITCH ON, I TESTED THE POWER SUPPLY ON A DELL OPTIPLEX GX150 AND IT WORKS FINE. SO CAN ANYONE HELP ME, AM I MISSING ANYTHING\015

Answers :

My experience with this orange light was a power supply or heat sync in need of replacement for the GX 270. Was able to find parts second hand/refurbished and machines are now happy at start up.
