I'm guessing the power supply is truly dead with no hope of revival. First, try another power supply.

One thing you can do to try to revive it temporarily is this: 1) Unplug the PC, and then hold in the power button for 5 seconds to drain any power LonelyIsland View Public Profile Send a private message to LonelyIsland Find More Posts by LonelyIsland Hex Member (02-25-2010, 07:50 PM) Quote #9 Call Dell?

The green LED on the motherboard remains illuminated but the power switch flashes amber. According to Dell's support site this means things are normal. It's the big box in the top back corner of the computer. Register now!
While this is not a true scientific or thorough measurement of the power supply reliability, it is nevertheless a very simple and easy way for ordinary PC users to estimate and most common cause for this issue is a power supply or motherboard.

Insert one end of the jumper into the socket of the Green wire, and insert the other end into the socket of any Black wire.Once the jumper is in place plug navigate here But I still swapped it out with another PSU and when I did, BAM, it worked.
I would suggest that you not leave this connected any longer than is necessary for safety purposes.To reconnect the 20/4 pin connector unplug the power cord, remove the jumper, and reconnect To disconnect it you will need to press on the plastic clip to disengage it and then pull the connector up and away from the motherboard. The power button is blinking/flashing an amber light.
Some manufacturers Like Dell have used some non ATX PSUs which have a different pinout for the 20/4 pin connector, please confirm that your PSU is a ATX type before using
