Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

Auto Sensing voltage circuit

My Dell Dimension 3000 was purchased in Canada. I am now in the UK and I wish to change the voltage to 240v. There does not appear to be a switch, just 2 red squares under some clear tape. Does this mean that it has an auto sensing voltage circuit or do I have to take the clear tape off the two red squares and do something to them

By default, Dell systems sold in Canada have non PFC power supply. Sad to say for this type of system that is pretty old it doesn't have any ATX that would convert the voltage. It's only applicable on newer systems. You might need to purchase for a PFC power supply this time since the system is in UK.

Dell Dimension 3000 Video problem


There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

The BIOS will most likely be set to auto detect, when you physically install the new card the BIOS should detect it and auto disable the onboard video.
