    The Amber light comes from the power button on the CPU/Tower itself.

Dell xps 700 turns on once power cored is plugged in?

The turning on when plugged it in caused by a bios setting ..Im not sure how it is named..but I will take a look and post a comment ..but it is something on the ac setting page in BIOS ..It basically related with restarting when power is out for a few moments ..I think is called ac sensitive ..or so ..It can be disabled...and the fastest way is to get to bios settings ..and choose the optimal factory defaults..It should not do that by the factory settings it will be disabled..Save the changes with F10 when you finish ..or if this is not available ..choose to save changes in the way out ..(this is a standard for dell )
Ill be back with the exact name of the function causing this ..

I have a Dell dimension XPS 400/9150, 3 years old. I did updates and shut down. Tried to restart, but all I got was a flickering amber light. Won't start at all. Now no light.

Sounds like your power supply just failed. Unplug the power cord, open the case, and look for a metal box inside the case right where the power wire plugs in. Remove the box...usually four screws hold it to the case, remove all of the wires...marking each one and the motherboard so you'll be able to connect the new power supply wires. Most computer stores will have a suitable replacement. Easy replacement if you mark the wires/connections during removal. Just be sure to work with the power plug removed.

No power to my computer.


just read this carefully.................

Unplug the power cord and the display cable from the monitor. Now press the power button for 60 sec exact. Plug the cables and your system is working................ This is just a power drain.
