I have verified that the ethernet 10/100 on my Dell Dimension 3000 is bad, Can I just replace the connection via a PCI card or do i need a new motherboard? Also wehat is the price point of this fix?


A new motherboard is not needed and you can just buy a PCI card. Here is one that will work great and is cheap: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833166004. If you wanted to get this fixed you would have to go through dell to get a new motherboard which would probably cost an arm and a leg so you are just better off going with the PCI card.

I changed the CPU fan on Dell dimension 3000 but it does not run.


Dell uses a proprietary fan on it's cpu's. This is more than likely your problem. The motherboard does not recognize the new fan and the motherboard is not powering it on. Without replacing the motherboard you are stuck using dell replacement parts for this model. The motherboard & psu are also proprietary in this model so it would take a whole lot of modification to use anything but Dell replacement parts. Your pc is shutting down due to overheating. Sorry. Hope this helps.

Added 2g to a dell dimension 3000, only 1g recognized


Dell has a really good support site. You log on, enter your service tag number (on the top of side of your PC) and they will tell you exactly how much ram you support, the type of ram needed and how many slots it has. If it was a matching pair then it should be working, unseat it and reseat it, it may not be in all the way. If still don't show then put it back in the old computer and see if it reads it. If not then the RAM stick got damaged during the move. But no doubt you should be able to handle more that 1GB of RAM. Good Luck, let me know if you have any questions.
Please rate this solution.

Power source is ok so is the memory , is it the motherboard


That is usually caused by bad ram. Take the new ram out, put the old ram back in and see what happens.

Motherboard blew up


I would recommend buying a replacement computer, and install the Dell IDE drive in an external 3.5" IDE hard drive enclosure. This way you can pull your information off the the Dell hard drive, and then blow it away.

Keep in mind that new computers use a SATA drive, your old Dell '8200 has an IDE drive. Also keep in mind that your Dimension 8200 drivers won't work on the new computer.

You might be able to install your Dell drive as a slave if you have an open IDE channel available.

Good news is, your old Dell uses RAMBUS memory, which is worth a lot. It's a good parts computer, and most people who look for computer parts know of the bad capacitor issue on Intel made Dell motherboards from that era.

Dell 4600 motherboard


That particular Dell uses a power supply with non-standard wiring. The plug is the same size as an ATX plug, but it's wired differently. If you were to replace motherboard & plug in the standard power supply, it would damage the supply, or the motherboard, or both. Also, the front panel plugs (for power & power LED & hard drive indicator) are proprietary as well. Ideally you should replace it with another Dell Dimension 4600 motherboard. I've found replacements for reasonable prices on some of the auction places on the web. I recently replaced a failed motherboard in my Dimension 8300 with one I got from a popular auction site, I think my cost was about $59 plus shipping.

The other option would be to remove the hard drive, video card (if any), and optical drives, and consider a 'barebones' package from various sites such as geeks or newegg.
