PC will not start-up after sudden crash

\015 I was playing a game on my pc when suddenly my computer shut down. My computer will start, but it will not display anything on the monitor. The power light is green as it allways has been, however, theres a constant amber light on the motherboard I never noticed before.\015

Answers :

Try unplugging the power cable, holding down the power button for 10 seconds, then plugging it back in and turning it back on. also, there should be a set of 4 lights on the back of the dell (A, B, C, and D) for diagnostic purposes. Check them and compare them to your model's light diagnostic look-up on Dell's website.

Today the problem has deepened. Cur
