My pretty old Dell desktop has the dreaded amber light issue, where one random it refused to power up. I tried most everything, and noticed in the back the green light was on indicating it was recieving power (possibly, i dont really know what that means.) I tried multiple monitors, all the same result, so it is narrowed down to the unit itself. If its any consolation, a power outage happened about a week before, so it might have damaged the motherboard, but it was a pretty powerful computer. Should I take it in, or is it a simple fix? Anyone know whats wrong? It has many memories I need to save. Thanks!

Theres a green light in the back saying it is receiving power I think though. It still lights up, just wont go past an amber light.
