Can't run anything.  The "aux led" just behind the memory and the power button led on the front are what flashes, rather blinks(just once).  CPU won't turn on at all.  If it helps, this pc hasn't been used in a few months.  I brought it to my work to connect to the web and update everything.  When I plugged it in, I had to reset the clock, and the next time I looked atthe monitor, Dell wouldn't turn on.  As it is an older setup, I just assumed it was the ac power adapter, so I bought a new one.  I get the same reaction.  The power adapter led is yellow until I connect to the cpu.  Then it turns green for about half a second and goes out.  At that same time is when the cpu blinks yellow and everything goes off.
