Brand new to the forum. I just bought a new Optiplex 390 and I notice that it has a solid amber light right underneath what I think is the SATA connections on the motherboard. It is a solid amber, not blinking and on startup I receive no error codes or beeps and power light is sold blue. I always get nervous when seeing an amber light, should I be???
Info on Motherboard is:
Motherboard Manufacturer Dell Inc. Model 0M5DCD (CPU 1) Version 01 Chipset Vendor Intel Chipset Model Sandy Bridge Chipset Revision 09 Southbridge Vendor Intel Southbridge Model H61 Southbridge Revision B2 BIOS Brand Dell Inc.

thanks for any info
That's is normal, this is the Motherboard Standby Power Light [aka Flea Power] indicating the motherboard has power.

I always get nervous when seeing amber lights.
You are welcome.
I get nervous when I receive blue screens and/or error messages. LOL
i have a Dell Optiplex 390, the power was turned off and now we cannot get the computer to turn back on, when the power supply is connected the same solid amber light is visable
i was reading in the manual, that an amber light was a malfunction light
also reading in a few forums, a lot of people are saying it might be the PSU, but how does one descide this
any help would be appreciated
Which version of the Optiplex 390 do you have, the Mini Tower, Desktop, or the Small Form Factor [SSF]?
Where is the solid amber light located, motherboard, or the power button?
