Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX270 PC Desktop ?
Can anyone tell me what the orange light on the power button means? I am using a Dell GX270 and the PC will not start. You can power it on but nothing happens.
It means that you could have a hardware failure. What you can try is unplugging the hard drive and cdrom to see if it comes up then. If it does then you know how to narrow it down. Another thing you could try if you are familiar with Pcs is unplugging the the power and removing the bios battery for 5 min. then press the power button(with the power still unplugged) then put the battery back in then power it backup. just remember, dont unplug any hardware while the power is still plugged into the back of the pc.
Check your power supply. It may have failed. You will need someone who has the technical knowledge to verify if it is bad.
