Dimension 8200 no video

I had an issue last week with my dimension 8200 it turned out to be the power supply. After replacing the power supply I turned on my computer to find it now has no video. I have tried 2 different video cards all to no avail. When the power is turned on the hard drive sounds like its spinning up but then the computer restarts. I have also tried a different drive which has had no effect.anyone have any ideas?

Dell dimension 8200 help

A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

I havd a Dell Dimension 8200 that sometimes shuts down and power light turns yellow. I can usally open case and plug and on plug to get it to power back up. Recently replaced fans due to fan failure....

Thank for the detail, it really helps...
Most people forget about the power supply. If the power supply overheats, it will shutdown. When shutdown, it will cool off then operate again.

A power supply goes by WATT ratings, the average size power supply is now 450 watts for an average system and should cost around $60.

good luck and don't forget to vote.

Dell 8200 Dimension shuts down on bootup. Making

The clinking sound could well be your drive heads snapping back into parking location if your power supply is going out. Since the 8200 comes with a pretty weak power supply those tend to go out shortly after you've upgraded to a better graphics card or added another drive to the system. I've replaced mine a few times and now have a 450 watt supply in it which seems to be able to handle a powered video card and the 2nd HD, 2nd dvd without running out of juice.
Another good thing for these old dimensions is the addition of a case /slot fan to help with cooling a bit more. (see included picture)
I've had dealings with a number of dimensions from this era not cooling enough and the slot fans really helped stability.5a04930.gif
Let me know if any of this helps your situation.

Probably a bad power supply? If you are not getting any power. They are inexpensive and easy to change.

Dell Dimension 8200 won't power up

If the power button does not light up at all, I would guess the power supply has a problem.

Dimension 8200 will not turn on

Try a new power button. Also does the machine power light turn on at the front of the machine? if so check that the CPU is seated correctly as if it has come out of position then the machine doesn't boot. I would like to think power switch though.

Thanks J
