Hi guys,

I've got a Dell Studio Slim desktop 540s. I was disconnecting the monitor from the video card and the next time I went to use
it, I couldn't get it to boot or show anything on the monitor. Get a constant amber light on the power button, louder fans than normal and no input to monitor. Tried reseating video card, RAM, cleaned dust, CPU fan and still won't boot. Does this sound like something happened when I was tampering with the VGA plug in the video card? that was the last thing I did before this problem. Operating windows 7. Thanks in advance for any suggestions,

Solid amber LED is a hardware failure indicator. motherboard I believe.
