While the system begins booting --before the xp logo shows, if it gets that far for you, hold down the F8 key. This will bring up a menu. Choose "start windows in safe mode with networking".
The OS will start in safe mode. run a virus scan, defrag and scandisk, then restart the system. If is still wont boot normally, do the same thing then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot. If it still won't boot you may have to format the drive and reinstall the OS. good luck.
PLEASE RATE THIS ADVICE WITH SOME THUMBS UP!!!

    I am researching the same issue. The computer (Dell Opit-GX620) would boot then spontaneously turn itself off.

    I was asked to look at the machine by the owner. The amber light comes on and flashes but the computer will not even get a BIOS beep.

    Your suggestion will work IF the computer get past the BIOS.

My dell demention 5150 has like a yellow/amber led light flashe green then goes back. wont even load on my moniter


Your system has failed to POST. It sounds like it may be the PSU. If you decide to open the computer, check if any of the capacitors are leaking or vented. Badbaps.net may be able to help you with this.

Blinking amber light and wont boot up.


if the power button was blinking amber, unplug your tower, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to use any excess power stored in the capassitors in the pc. this was told to me by a dell tech, it is a small issue with the 3100=E310, and 5150=E510 Dimension desktops

Dell Dimension 5150 automatically turns off


That flashing amber light is usually a sign the power supply is failed or is failing. I would suspect the power supply is the problem in yours. It is the better of the two problems connected with the flashing amber light..the other is motherboard is failing. Arrrr!
hope this helps (it takes a standard- oh say 350 watt 20-24 pin power supply unit.)
Hope an answer helps.
