On Dell computers, an orange light on the power button indicates a failed power supply.

Is there a certain voltage that I need to check for?
These power supplies are hard to come by so I need to check it out down to component level.

Why are those power supplies hard to come by? Post your full Dell model number. Using a meter on a power supply doesn't test it under load. Any test equipment you could get that would perform a meaningful test would cost far more than a new PSU.
