Hi all, I have a Dell Optiflex 170l and I go to turn it on, but the power light stays orange/amber.

I have tried replacing the power supply and the hard drives (a brand new HDD with a genuine copy of Windows XP on it). I also tried reseating memory, even two new memory chips but nothing worked.

I read somewhere about four lights on the back of the machine; A,B,C,D, next to where I plug the mouse & keyboard in but I'm not sure what these do... They are all off...


Much appreciated once more!!

Computer fell over, not working now. Orange light.
So I was playing a game onn my PC, and I accidentally knocked it down. It immediately froze the image on the monitor, and the music stopped. When I opened the case, there was no obvious broken parts or cracks. There was a pair of RJ330 cables going from the motherboard, pinned near the power...
