Connecting jumper for start up

That would be connecting a jumper wire, from the Green wire to ANY Black wire, in the 20 or 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

If this problem is in direct relation to a Dell E210882 motherboard, it uses a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

Example of a 24-pin power cable, and it's respective connector,

The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire. (Abbreviated as PS_ON)
ANY Black wire is Ground wire.

With the 24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, and the power supply,(Computer), plugged into power, the jumper wire is inserted into the back of the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

Looking at the photo to the far right in the link, shows the ATX main power cable plugged in.
Where the wires go into the connector is the BACK of the connector.

One end of the jumper wire, goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire, RIGHT NEXT TO THE WIRE.
The other end goes down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire in it.

The end of every wire going down into the ATX main power cable connector, has a metal terminal end.
This metal terminal end is pretty far down into the connector, from the backside of the connector.
For this reason the jumper wire MUST go down into the socket hole, far enough to touch the metal terminal end.

The most widely used jumper wire is a paper clip.
The paper clip is straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. Black plastic electrical tape is applied to the center of the U shape.
This taped area is for your fingers.

(One wrap of black plastic electrical tape will insulate you from 600 Volts DC)

The 'legs' of the U-shaped paper clip then go down into the socket holes.

The voltage is 5 Volts DC.
Two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.
The voltage is VERY low, but there may be a small spark.
Warning you in advance.

Power supply comes on?
You have a bad Power On switch.

Power supply does Not come on?
You have a bad Power Supply.

Intel E210882 Motherboard can't ON

> Check the power connection to your computer in good condition.
> Remove the SW on the motherboard connection and switch on the computer by using the SW pin tespen to affect positively and negatively. (To make sure the button on / off function)

If your computer can be turned on this means that the button on / off there is a problem but if the contrary, create a test on your computer power supply box in a manner which was troubleshooting with the power supply box which is still functioning properly or even better one.(Problems on the motherboard can also cause your computer can not be turned on)
If you have to do some tests and the problem is not coming from your motherboard, I believe there is no problem for your computer is switched on and used as usual.

Dell Dimension 3000, splashed liquid from canned air, mobo fried?

The spray on the MB should not be a problem - unless it was plugged in when you did it. Yes, you should be able to put in a new Dell motherboard. As long as the processor is of the same class, the Dell license should work fine. However, you may need to download new drivers for the machine to run.

If you really want to check the power supply, I would suggest you buy a tester. They are fairly cheap: $10-50. You want to be sure that your board is getting the right power at the right places. 12 V to the fan is fine. However, 3.3 v or 1.5 v?

It sounds like you have done a fairly good test of the motherboard. I've definitely seen bad Dell motherboards with the light on with/without a bad power supply.

If you have another case (an ATX), I would buy an Asus or other motherboard and put your equipment in it. The cost of a Dell motherboard is excessive. Of course, you will have license problems with XP.

I don't have the manual for 277498-011

As for the Power Supply 99% sure it is an ATX which as long as you get the same Watt as the existing you will be okay. Make sure you look at your existing connectors to see if you have a 24 pin or 20pin motherboard and 4 pin or 8 pin additional power plug (black and yellow wires) and the new power supply has matching connectors....older ATX supplies have only 20 pins, but there are converters from 20 to 24 pin available.

Watch for the new power supplies and your drive connectors as some of the new power supplies have limited ATA plugs...if you have a lot of ATA devices you might need SATA power convertor plugs or ATA splitters to get all you ATA devices up.

Problem with power

Make sure the power cables are plugged into the pins properly on the motherboard.

Once you do this then go ahead and reseat the power supply connectors to the motherboard. Only hook up these two connectors from the power supply for now.

Try turning on the computer and hopefully you will get it to turn on now. If you can't then make sure the switch on the power supply is set to 115v. Once this is done try turning on the computer again.

If you still can't get it to turn on then try a known good working power supply or new power supply. If it still doesn't turn on then you know at this point that the motherboard is bad.

When powering on the fans spin and yet I get no video. The LED under the PSU (CR9E1) flashes. What is the LED indicating?

This indicates power supply failure. PSU means Power Supply Unit.

Replace the power supply.
MAKE SURE it is a compatible one!

What do I mean by that statement? In some years of Dell manufacturing, Dell made their computers "Proprietary".
This means only Dell parts could be used in a Dell computer.

The wires in the 20/24-pin ATX main (Motherboard) power cable, were put in different socket holes, than a standard 20/24-pin main power cable.
Yellow is 12 volts. Orange is 3.3 volts. Red is 5 volts. Black wires are Ground wires.

If an aftermarket power supply made by another manufacturer, were to be used in these type of computers, it will burn out the motherboard! Possibly the ram memory and processor also!

If you buy an aftermarket power supply, instead of a Dell unit, make SURE the colors of the wires are in the same place, as they are in the Dell 20/24-pin main power cable connector!

For more info about that last statement, I suggest you check out this page,
