An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. 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.
