Steady amber power LED is indicative of a problem with the motherboard. Remove all external connections except power, remove all PCI Cards, ram, disconnect power from all drives, turn on see if power LED is still steady amber. If it is, more than likely the motherboard has a failure. Also check to see if the CPU heatsink is firmly seated (The plastic retainer has been known to fail causing the CPU to overheat)

Since that isn't one of the listed codes, it is important to see what the POWER LED indicates.
If it is Flashing Amber, most likely a bad power supply
If power LED is solid amber, then either the motherboard, or a expansion card in the motherboard has failed. Remove any expansion cards, (Modem, sound or video card) try booting again.
If no Change then a motherboard
