PC won't switch on

My Dell desktop wont turn on. When I push the button a backlight flashes amber until i hold it in (then it goes out)

Could it be the Power unit (I replaced it 18 months ago)- Why does it flash amber?

Looked at the dell forum above, seems like it could be the cause of my woe's. I got the pc second hand after workmate fried it with 400 volts. I replaced the PCU from PC World and it went first time. Will try another one.

Yep sounds like a new PSU is needed
