XPS 8700 dead motherboard, need help?

I have a 2 year old Dell. Looks like from your post that the motherboard is dead. Of course I am no longer covered under warranty. I get no beeps at all, the power button doesn't light up, I only get the solid amber light on the motherboard. I was hoping the solid amber light means the motherboard was working, apparently not. Now I guess I try to figure out how to repair or replace it.

Made a new PC, won't startup so I was wondering if the motherboard is dead?

I bought all the computer parts and put it together, but when I started it the CPU fan turned on for 5secs and then the PC turned off and won't turn ever again now
