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.

Thanks!

SOURCE: Solid Amber light when starting the Inspiron 530

Amber led simplifies a start-up-error. This could be a number of things.

For example:

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...

Goodluck

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron 530 wont turn on

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.

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

Hi. I Inherited a DELL Poweredge 1600SC server. When I switch it on, it powers up but the screen remains blank [black without any beeps]?? I remove all the memory and switched it back on again = NO beeps....

Dell insperion 5030 screen black and beeping


This POST code means there is a problem with the RAM.
Reseat the RAM and if the Dell still does not boot up then -
If it still does not boot up then could be faulty. Remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

Computer won't start, solid amber light, no fans, no keyboard, nothing. There is power to monitor and modem. What's wrong and how can I fix it?


That my Friend is the Yellow Light of Death, anyway turn on Your PC, as it starts You will here some beeps especially on a Dells. Count the beeps , there will be a slight pause so it will beep once then pause then beep again. Count the beeps and that will be Your code. Go to Dell Support site and look up code. Most of the time a Yellow amber light means that there is trouble with Your Motherboard but thats not to say its the Motherboard itself, during a power outage with no surge protected, it could have possibly burned out Your RAM, Processor, Heat fan, even the power supply itself. So look up the code and at least You'll have a better chance of finding the solution, Good Luck
