Orange/ Amber led light on INSPIRON 503S

I tried to turn my inspiron 530s on and a solid Amber light come on. I tried to search for an answers but i havent found it. I opened the pc side cover to see if evething is connected and all of the wires are in place. however i removed the 2xBrown and 2x Black wires that connect to the power for cpu (ATX_CPU)
 and tried to turn it on and all the fans came on. so what does that mean? If the MOTHERBOARD was dead why does the fans come on? need help ASAP please.

Re: Orange/ Amber led light on INSPIRON 503S

From the manual:

If the power light is steady amber, there may be a power problem or an internal device malfunction.

Ensure that all power cables are securely connected to the system board (see Inside View of Your Computer).

Ensure that the main power cable and front panel cable are securely connected to the system board
