Dell XPS 410 flashing amber light on start button

Hello I have a friends dell xps410 that won't start and just flashes amber light. I have tested the PS and replaced with known working one and same issue. I have removed and reseated all cards and ram, same issue. I notice several leaking/bulging capacitors. I just want to make sure before I tell him knew MB...any sugestions? It all points to a bad MB but want to be sure. Thank you

    Yes, the MB is dead. My first PC was xps410, when the PC didn't boot, black screen and it did the same, just flashes amber light, because the MB is gone forever.
