Re: When I push the power button, the power light stays...
Does your computers power supply kick on or the fan. If not at all there is two tabs on the motherboard. They are small and blue located at the bottom left and just to the right of the first one. they should be connecting a set of pins together on the motherboard take the left one completely off and leave the right one in the same spot. Try the computer again it should kick on. If not replace pin to the left 2 pins instead of the right for a computer reset. Then hit your power button. wait 3 minutes then take the pin back off and put into the normal position. Computer should kick on and run properly.

A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. 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.
Hi. No I think mobo is ok as you've got power to fan and lights. Are the drives kicking in? if yes then I think its your memory. Also if the drives are kicking in then your cpu is also ok. So that leaves the memory and graphics card. Good luck
Generally, this is an indication of a motherboard failure. Remove any items connected externally and and expansion cards intenally and see if the Power LED indication changes. if not changes, then replace the motherboard
can you try this? unplug the pc, hold down the power switch until the amber light goes off, then (with the pc still unplugged) push the power button to see if the amber light comes back on, if it does, repeat the first step. do this until no light comes on when the power button is pushed. after you've done this. plug the pc back up, then hit the power button. what happens?
ive had this happen to a lot of my dell pc's here at work, but all i can figure out is that its a mobo problem, i also have tried swapping PSU's, but it didnt help.
The amber light is signifying an error. Most common are the power supply, video card, or RAM. Worst case is motherboard has went bad. Try reseating the RAM without installing the video card, if it boots then it's the video card. Replace the bad part & you should be up & running again. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
A Blinking Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc...
