I agree, your power supply is defective. Should have it replaced before it exhibits other more serious problem, like blowing components.

Your computer is not POSTing, the best solution is to get warranty support on it.

The other option is to take it to a computer technician and he/she will diagnose the faulty component. They have access to many computer components and can determine the fault by a process of elimination.

Solid AMber power LED indicates a failure of the motherboard or an item connected connected to the motherboard. Disconnect all external connections except power and see if the indication changes. If yes, re-connect one at a time till the fault is found. If no, remove all PCI Expansion cards, see if any change, if yes, again try them one at a time till issue ID'd
If issue still occurs, failure is most likely the motherboard

Can not get it hooked up and working.


The G Wireless Router is the central connection point of your wireless network. Position your Belkin Router in between your cable/DSL modem and your computer to start sharing your broadband Internet access. It is pretty straight forward. you may learn wap or wep (encryption).
Now, I recommend that you contact your ISP (internet SERVICE provider) should you have any problems and they will talk you through every step. Or may take over you machine and do it for you. Hey you are paying for the service, you might as well use it. (verizon and comcast are really helpful, usually.)
This should do it for you my friend, good luck and please leave a rating. thank you kindly

Acer Power FH will not boot Windows XP Pro


Well your explanation was clear but your should've not ruled out the hardware issue. if both computer suffered the same problem at the same time the problem could be within the Desktop itself. I have experienced the same problem with my HP when I move to my new house after 5 years. What happend is that during transportation the vibration lossened up the parts inside your computer. So what I did was I reseated all the parts inside the desktop and reinstalled Windows XP. Till now I have never had any problems yet.

What in the H- is wrong with my computer?


the problem i think lies with the virus infection. if you do have an antiviru update it first and let it do the boot scan as some virus act like a windows files after the computer is on. to pacify this pleae update your antivirus and let it do boot scan and let it delete all the infected files. 2. If you don't have an antivirus go this link www.avast.com and download the avast home edition and use. i usualy recommend the avast antivirus. 3. With this download spybot search and destroy and let it scan for any spyware also. try it out
