CARY, NORTH CAROLINA -- I am one of the victims of the “blinking Amber light”. Just after the computer is out of warranty, the power button blinks amber. “Means power supply problem”. After doing some research on the Internet I came to find out this is a wide spread problem. Dell should be extending the warranty. Apparently this is some sort of short on the motherboard, a serious problem, requiring a new motherboard or power supply, which means that you might as well replace the system. This is ridiculous for an almost new system.
This happened to me after I just tried to buy a new Dell system two months ago & had to return it, it would repeatedly reboot itself during the day, Dell could not fix it.
Shame on you Dell, I used to be a big Dell customer, I am trying HP now.
