I am a former Dell resolution team specialist and manager so I am very well traind in these issues.
The solution to your issue depends on if your hard Drive light is flashing when the amber light is flashing.
The Initial state of LED at power up should flash amber for a moment this indicates that the system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active.
If the hard drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced. You will need to contact Dell for the replacement part or have a technician sent to your location.
If the hard drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed. Look at the diagnostic LEDs for further information.
If there are any numbers displayed on the diagnostic leds on the machine
Here is the link to Dells troubleshooting tree that may also help identify a few other issues.

Your fuse probably turned off on you since you were using too much power. go outside your house and there should be a fuse box and flip the switch to the room where your computer is located
