If the light is a steady yellow you have a power problem. With the associated burning smell there may be something wrong with the power supply unit (PSU) in the PC. Suggest you get someone who knows about PCs to have a look. It maybe that you just need a replacement PSU . They are not very expensive.

Thanks so much for your prompt answer. I got someone and told me that it needs replacement of the PSU. Exactly what you suggested. Thanks again!
