Question about Dell Computers & Internet
An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Since you replaced the power supply, my guess is that the motherboard has a problem.
Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Do you have a lot of accessories plugged in? They may have overloaded the power supply and if this is the case you will need to buy new power supplies. If this is not the problem, check to make sure that the computers have plenty of ventilation in the back. If they don't, they may have overheated and melted quite a few different components.

If you are getting an amber light flashing, your power supply is faulty.
If it is a solid amber light, you motherboard is faulty or one of the componants are faulty.
I would suggest giving Dell a call. They would beable to pin point the problem and give you a quote. Some of their componants are non standard and can only be purchased from them.
You could try reseating all your componants on the last resort but it is unlikly to help.
