Inspiron 5675, won't boot, flashing amber light

my dell Inspiron that I only bought two months ago has always been fine except today when I attempted to turn it on but instead I was given a orange flashing light (bleeped 4 times) unlike the normal white light, I tried unplugging power supply and replugging but I have no idea what is wrong, Please help!!

4 beeps is usually a RAM (memory) error. So try this:

  1. Power off, unplug
  2. Press/hold power button for ~15 sec
  3. Open case and carefully reseat RAM modules in their slots. Check Service Manual for details on removing/installing RAM
  4. Close up and see if it boots now

If it still fails, you should contact Dell Tech Support for warranty assistance and possible memory replacement.

Now it's time to contact Dell Tech Support since your PC is still under warranty. Have your Service Tag handy when you contact them. (Do not post your Service Tag here.)
