Default Computer Gives Me Yellow Blinking Lights

What does it mean when I hit the power button and the indicator gives me blinking yellow lights?

I know it has something to do with the HD. How do I fix it?

I means the HDD is reading/writing data. It is perfectly normal.

No.... I mean Like it wont boot up at all the HD is off and the Motherboard is not moving or doing anything. The Lights are just blinking. Yellow.

No fans are moving and the green light on the Motherboard is on... That's about it.
