the amber power light is what you get from the monitor? Double check the cable connections from the back of the case and the monitor. My DVI connection comes loose from my monitor sometime and the amber light shows up.

could be. If you have can test the monitor on a friends computer or another PC in your house. If it works, it could be your video card.
