I tried this fix for the flashing orange light on my Dell Inspiron 620 and it did not work for me. According to the manual that flashing light indicates any number of potential faulty components. I really dont know why. If either of the above fixes work and computer starts, press the F2 key usually, could be F12 on some models when computer screen first comes on and before Windows starts to load. It started up like it was going to boot up, I thought I was set, and then it stopped, and the orange light began flashing again. I've tested my brothers working power supply in mine, so I know that mine still works because that didn't fix it. It will not go green and turn the computer on.
If this doesn't work - proceed with what ever. I was able to look inside, didn't see anything disconnected, loose or burnt up.

When I plugged the computer back in, there was no flashing orange light and the computer power up for a few days and worked flawlessly. Most of the time the power light will be flashing Orange. I have a solid orange light, a Dell Inspiron 3847 that is about 18 months old. Remove the cmos battery for about one minute and then replace. Trying to find the solution on all the forums.

If the new computer is a desktop, you connect old hard drive to the motherboard as a secondary drive. Had a Digital Check receipt printer plugged into it, pulled that, still not powering back on. My wife's Dell desktop will not boot up, and is flashing an orange light. Could you test with another power adapter if possible? But here is a very strict word of caution for you. Im sure it was foolish to use that. This fix may last for months but problem will return. However he talks about battery lights which my Inspiron 5559 doesn't have, so I believe he needs to clarify what he has.

I can not power up my computer. Don't know what your others computers are, but it's likely you can use the psu from one of them, at least for testing. A good Dell tech will dispatch service for both. Otherwise, you should buy a new battery. I'll give that a try before I buy the part. Just don't touch any other pins.
Just did the dust blowout thinking that could have been cause. Does this help tell if it's the power supply or motherboard?
