Make sure all the cables are properly attached. Also open the case to see whether something came loose inside the box.

The Optiplex series generally tries to deliver some kind of usable information about what the problem may be.

First check the system's diagnostic LEDs and see if it is displaying an error constellation.

Also check the beep codes.  It should be delivering coded beeps, i.e., more than just a single beep.

One of these should give some insight into the problem.
