You may need to replace the cmos battery, its a cr2032 3v button cell Make sure all your expansion cards and memory are reseated. Make sure all cables are reseated. your power supply could be bad
If that doesn't work try this
Here is my fix for the dell dimension 4400 amber light problem. It works! replace cmos battery. then unplug power cord form wall about 5-10 secs. then plug it back in, wait 5 secs. If amber light comes on, press and hold power button until it goes out.
light out, press and hold power button while amber light comes on and
goes off again holding power button 2-3 secs after light goes out.)
repeat whats in parenthesis until computer turns on it should only take about 6, 7 tries.
After the computer boots, you may want to setup cmos or boot into windows. After you shutdown, unplug power cord for 5-10 secs then plug it back in. Press and hold the power button, computer should come on. I found that's the only way to turn on the computer. If you shutdown and don't unplug power cord the computer may not boot, mine didn't. Strange I'd say

There could be problem with the motherboard. You can try resetting the same.
1.Press F2 to enter the system setup.
2. Use the down arrow key and go to the option that says maintaince
3. Press enter and key down to the option CMOS defaults
4. Hit enter and reset defaults
5. Press escape and save changes and exit
6. check if the system boots up.
Before you perform the steps given above, unplug all external peripherals from the system like printers and webcams speakers etc. Your information is safe and there would not harm done to the information stored on the hardrive .
inside the pc there should be a green light. called flea light. if its not on.. then id say motherboard or power supply are bad. take power cord off. and hold power button down for 10 ecs. then reconnect and retry. i think its abad psu.
Easy check is: power the system off. Unplug the power supply from the outlet. Hold the power on button in for at least 10 seconds. Remove the CMOS battery. Reconnect the power supply to power. Attempt to power up. See what happens. If it comes up and asks for you to set config, power down, unplug the power supply and hold the power on button for 10 secs. Replace the CMOS battery with a new one (CR2032 button battery...about $5 for 2 in the Wal-Mart photo dept) and power on. The reason for the repetition is to reset the BIOS.
How long are the beeps? If they are shortish then it suggests that the ram on your motherboard isnt working properly. Try removing it and reseating it. Make sure all the power is turned off before doing this.
Also there is a jumper located near the bios battery for resetting the bios. Move that to the clear position then back again after a minuter or so. That will put it back to default setting.
How did the problem start? Had you been adjusting anything in the bios at all?
