What do my Dell light codes mean?

Dell OptiPlex 320 with lights: 2, 3, 4 lit up. Power button is solid green. What does this mean? I can't find it online anywhere and am frustrated. :-/

2,3,4 are usually a USB failure?  Do you have any usb devices connected?  Like an external hard drive, printer, mouse, keyboard etc?

Unplug them and reboot

Based on MASQ's comment, DISCONNECT all USB devices EXCEPT keyboard and mouse - if possible, connect the keyboard and mouse to different USB ports.
it probably tries to boot from an USB disk...
