When I turn on my computer, it shows an amber light on the CPU and the monitor, but does not turn on. When I shut it down using the power switch and restart it works, but my sister is getting tired of having to shut down her computer (which is connected to the same power switch). It functions perfectly well after it is turned on, but has the aforementioned problem turning on in the first place. It isn't a horrible problem, but it is an annoyance, and I am worried that it might be a sign of some worse computer problem.
Thanks in advance for your assistance.
QUICK EDIT: I put this in the wrong section- I am running Vista and it has worked perfectly before now. My computer is a dell, not sure what type.
