Answers :

If the power light is blinking amber, the computer is receiving electrical power, but an internal power problem might exist.
\015\012Try, unplugging the power cable from the pc, and reinsert it, if this does not help try a differnt power outlet, if this dont help, open the computer, take the power Molex conector out of the mother board and try turning it on, if this dont help, take out the Memory modules and reseat them, if this dont work you may want to ring up dell support.
