    No the light on the front panel....one is power and one should be you Hard drive activity...

    Have you tried restarting your PC and immediately on startup tapping F8 about every second and does that bring a black option screen up or not?

    The light on the front panel appears orange, and the system can't be turned on for some reason so i can't start up the comp.

    Check the power supply cables and plug it into another plug socket....also check if there is a switch on the back that it is switched to the correct voltage if there is one.

    How old is the power supply?

    It last worked around Thanksgiving time, and I thought it was the power supply cord thats doing that, so I went to buy a new one, and it isn't the cord, so now i dont know what's the problem.
