Flashing Amber power LED indicates a bad power supply.

A solid power LED is either a bad component connected to the motherboard or a bad motherboard

Dimension 4400 won't boot and the Flea light is amber


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Hi Thanks for your question
I think you are right about power supply. This would be my diagnose. Be careful with your PC because faulty power supplies may fry your motherboard. I would recommend replacing it. This isn't expensive and it's pretty easy to get done. I hope this helps. Good Luck

Dell Inspiron flashing amber power light, not charging


I would think the batteries need replacing. That happened to my Dell Latitude CPI. The batteries won't charge past about 3%, so I got new ones and that did the trick. If this is under a year old I would contact Dell about it, if it is under a year old they should replace the batteries.

Hope this helps.

Windows XP won't start


The amber light is the error light on a Dell. It can mean a few things. 1. RAM has went bad, not properly seated. 2. Video card has went bad or come unseated. 3. Power supply is not working properly; or 4. Motherboard has went bad. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.
