Answers :

PC turns on after switching on the AVR. I am using an Asrock 775i65GV FSB800 mainboard. I've have tried replacing the Power Supply, shorted the jumpers, clean, unplugged and plugged all possible item connected to the board but it's still the same. Need help. Thanks!
Actually the poster did not say the amber light on the computer was flashing but rather the monitor. My guess is that during the transport, something came loose on the inside, most likely the video card. Open your computer and reseat everything on the inside and make sure all the cables are firmly connected. Your monitor is not receiving a signal so definitely pay attention to the video card, even removing it and putting it back in if you have to.
