Hello there....

Looks like you have some power issue.

Please check you PC power supply unit if it generate enough power for the PC or another possibility is that you got faulty Motherboard.

But, based on my experience its around 80% power issue.

Hope this helps... :D

Dell Desktop Fan Runs all the time and Amber Light

An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard.
Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

Dimension 3100 turns on the power button has a steady orange light there is also an orange light on motherboard cpu and power suplly fans working but wont bot up

Blinking amber (orange) indicates a problem with the power supply inside the computer. If the system cannot boot and there is a solid amber light, this could indicate a problem with the power connections for the CPU on the system board (see "Power Problems" in your Owner's Manual).
