When my Gateway did that it was because my power supply was faulty.

where is the orange light showing up ??

on your screen
near your power button on the tower ???


if its near the power button on the tower that means the pc is working... witch im sure you already know but if its on the screen it could be that your screen is going to die and you need to get a new one or possibly the graphics card try using another moniter or take out your graphics card and see if it works that way also try using another power supply then figure out what isnt working and hit the company up for a warranty lol
