Question about Computers & Internet

Can't turn on

My Dell XPS 400 just completely turned off on it's own. The light on the power button was just blinking orange and it would not turn back on. A week later I tried the power button and it turned on. I normally leave my computer on and it just hibernates. About a week after it turned back on it just shut off and I can't turn it back on anymore. There isn't even a blinking orange light anymore. It's like the computer is just dead. Is this a power supply issue? Please help.

    That is what I was thinking too but I'm not very good with computers so I thought I'd ask. Your quick response is much appreciated

Dell XPS400 No Start!!

If you fan isn't turning like it should, it is definitely a power supply issue. Go out and purchase a power supply with 250-300 watts...thats a good standard wattage!!
