Have you checked your monitor? Try your monitor on another PC and check it is OK. Once you change the MB battery you effectively "Kill" the PC, as all the settings in the BIOS are removed and must be reprogrammed. You must enter the BIOS, and select "Default" setup and then reboot, you must do this regardless of what else is done first.(A bit hard when you can't see anything" You say... "tried different power switch and ribbon cable connector" (sic) exactly what "Ribbon cable/Power switch"? Anyway as said check monitor, if it is OK, we will proceed from there, then, you must check your video card, test it in another machine, if possible, to see if thats OK, if it is OK, then it is now likely that you may have a Mother board problem. If you can, try another Video card to see if you get Video on screen. see we need to establish "Known Good" items, once we know whats what, we can then go on. Now if any of these things tested are faulty, Monitor, Video card, obviously replace them, however IF they are NOT faulty, as related it may be the Motherboard, Remove the RAM, and see if anything is on screen? If yes, replace RAM, If still NO, then take any cards out, and check, if then OK, replace cards one by one until you get to the one that stops it, there is your problem, replace it. All we are trying to do is get anything on the screen, if we do, then you must redo the BIOS, as related before. Now if you get it going it still may not boot through to windows desktop, if this is the case, after you boot press F8 and select safe mode, when you get asked if you want safe mode or system restore, choose system restore and choose a date before you had a problem that should get you back. You just have to logically work through, until you find the faulty "bit" and replace it.

SOURCE: i have dimension 8300 mother

See my published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Check the connections to the VGA on the Graphics card or the on-board VGA out put, whichever applies to you. Ensure they are making good contact.

The next step is to remove the graphics card if you have one and clean the contacts and then reinstall.
Next remove the RAM modules and clean them, reinstall one at a time in alternating slots. On powering on each time.

Take care!

Hi my engle works fine on 240 v but not on 12v .....thnx

Got a few thing you can try

1. Check the fuse in the 12v cigarette lighter adaptor, it unscrews at the base, it needs a 10A glass fuse
2. ALWAYS switch the thermostat to off before going from 240v to 12v
3. Some of these have 2 different sockets on the back, check you are using the correct one

Failing this its probably a problem with the inverter inside the unit

Hope this helps

Brookstone picture frame model 599324 was working fine for several weeks. then we noticed one day it was off and won't come on. we tested outlet - it's good. is there a bulb in it ? burned out? bad...

It is most likely the power 12V supply located behind the lower panel on the back of the frame. Mine went out after about 14 months. I had an old Laptop Power Block I was able to adapt to it & it works perfectly.

12v &240v connections on an ENGEL COOLER

AUTOMATIC AC/DC CHANGEOVER: All Engel Fridge Freezers can be plugged into both AC and DC at the same time. The Engel is smart enough to use the AC while available and then automatically switch to DC when the AC is no longer working. It will also sense the resumption of AC power and automatically switch back to AC making it ideal for high hurricane areas and places where power disruption is common.
