Firstly, dont post your email addy on threads please, its for your safety.
and can you post more complete details of your system for us, motherboard model, processor,power supply etc,
and any details that you think may help (split coffee on it, dropped it etc)
download Cpu-z or hardware monitor to get your components info if you dont know it.

Blinking amber is a failed power supply... which also means the computer doesn't boot!
