Question Dell 8400 wont turn on. ( DELL General Hardware )

Dell 8400 wont turn on.

My system will not start up for me. I press the start button but the light doesn't come on in the front and the 4 little lights on the back when they do flicker on are A-green B-yellow C-green D-green. There is power on the system because I can see the green light coming from the motherboard.

What I did to remedy this was unplugged the system and held the start button down for 10 secs to clear the energy, then replugged it in the back and that is when the lights would flicker for less then a second. There is no sound that comes out of the computer.

Before I had this problem, I was loading a game but the game froze. I then decided to do a defrag and cleaned out my trash and ran the defrag. I then tried to load my game again but it froze so I restarted the system. That is when my system would not start again. Any clues?

Is the power button LED, solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber?

The 8400 troubleshooter is here.

Are there any error messages, if there are, please post the exact text of them?
