If the LED is glowing Amber then there is definitely something wrong with the hardware. Open up the system and check to make sure that all cables are plugged into the motherboard securely. If they are, you have faulty hardware somewhere. I would take it into a repair shop and see if they can locate the fault.

Amber led simplifies a start-up-error. This could be a number of things.
Check if HDD is connected properly
Check if RAM is connected properly / also if this is damaged your pc wont start.
Check your m/board for any loose capacitors an if they are not popped at the top.
Your LCD screen is properly plugged in to the m/board and if the cables aren't damaged they are very thin and fragile.
also could be the power supply...

yes buy a power supply. I have seen hundreds of computers that have gone through storms. Remember a Dell usually uses a special power supply.
For a good deal look on ebay for your specific model, They almost always have "Buy it Now" deals.

1) Remove ALL wires from thw back of the PC
2) Press and hold the power button on for approx 15 seconds
3) Replug only the mains power wire and the monitor cable and then retest
Please advise of outcome
I hope this has been useful
