Default Dell issues

I have the indetical problem to you on a Dimension 5150. Did you ever discover whether the proble was with the PSU or Motherboard ?
When first powered on from cold, my power switch flashes/flickers orange but if I leave it like this for a while and then press the power button again, the PC powers on OK.
