Blinking amber LED just won't quit - 5150

Greetings all,

My Dimension 5150 won't turn on; the LED light is blinking amber.  This used to only last 24 hrs; I figured some software was forcing it into standby.  But then it stayed blinking amber all week.  I unplugged/discharged, tried a different outlet, then finally opened the box and disconnected all drives/memory and reseated the power connections to the motherboard.  Now the LED stays dark, but returns to blinking amber whenever I press the power button to boot up.

Anyone out there have any experience with this?  Could it be the internal power supply or perhaps demonic possession?  This is driving me mad.

Thanks, Chris
