Dell xps 420 amber power button problem.

Hello, I'm new here. I'm here for answers about my problem. Yesterday, my neighbourhood had a power outage. After the power outage, my computer cannot be opened again.I found that there is an amber color on my computer's power button.Also, at the back there is a LED blinking, yellow in colour.After a day of that incident, my computer can be used back, but after 9 hours of using the computer, the computer automatically shut down and the amber color comes back.Im unable to continue playing. Please help me!

Sorry for my rotten English!

  1. Failing power supply?
  2. Yes, I think so, so what action should I take now?

    Also, I can only open my pc before 5pm, not after, after 5pm , the amber color problem will come again.

    EDIT: I attempted to open my pc after 5pm, but I failed to do so, now, a larger problem is here. After opening the pc, a large fan noise was heard and the pc keep on restarting. The amber light is still there, but it goes off every 5 second following with a restart.
  3. Amber light us usually Bad power supply or bad motherboard? Was the PC plugged into a surge protector or directly into a wall outlet? If it was plugged into a wall outlet there would be some serious damage to either the PSU or Motherbaord.
  4. i have a problem like this with inspiron 530 and i can tell you it is not the power supply most of the time its the motherboard
