Have a dell dimension 4700 with orange steady light?

\015 My dimension has a solid orange light and a solid green light , don't have the four diagnostics lights on back panel so i can't even try to know what the problem is , when i try to power it up it gets these lights and makes a loud fan noise?\015

Answers :

Turn the machine off and unplug the AC power then hold the power button in for about 30 seconds to drain any residual power. Plug it back in and turn it on, when you see the Blue DELL word press CRL+ALT+D and this should run a diagnostic on the hard drive. If it runs ok you will get a pass or fail on the hard drive. If you cannot get the diags to run you might have a bad power supply or motherboad/processor. I would find a known good power supply and try it before the motherboard.
