        After changing the Battery.

        The main things to do are set the Date & Time and then try Performance Defaults then exit the BIOS saving the changes.

      amber light on optiplex GX260

      The steady Amber light usually indicate a bad mobo. try Removing all, expansion, memory, Cards, if still same you will need to replace the mobo, If you get a Green light with just the RAM then an expansion card or peripheral might be the problem.

      Mobo

      If I remember correctly didn’t the 260 and 270 have capacitor problems? What you need to do is have a good look at the capacitors on the mobo, if the top shows a bulge or there is brown liquid oozing from if you will need to replace the mobo!
