Thx guys for a great post……It seem after read this post…. USB ports, re-seat battery, canned air, misc changes in the power source surge protection , etc. In my case, the amber light was because the HD was damaged, trying with another one showed a green light again. Thanks for these post. So somehow, I attribute it to the new motherboard, as this was NOT occuring over the last month. Unplugged everting one by one and attempted to start. Swapped out a PSU and that fixed it.
