Hi David,

Try removing and resetting the CMOS battery on your motherboard. Also, make sure that all connectors from power supply are plugged into the motherboard. There should be power for sys fan, CPU fan, etc.

Pin out for a dell PS-5201-8D2 power supply

Use caution, some older Dell machines used a non standard, proprietary pin-out on the 20 pin connector ALso the 6 pin is suspect. If you connect a regular ATX PSU, you will fry the MoBo. Look here

Plugged the computor into too high of voltage. i.e. 24v instead of 19v. Was told this has blown out motherboard

What you have been told is probably correct, plugging a much larger power supply into a device that is made to take less voltage will in 99% of cases fry the components on the motherboard rendering it useless so yes the motherboard will have no doubt blown out.

New motherboard drivers

Sounds like the BIOS corrupted while updating. It's usually easiest to just buy a new motherboard. As for the second one could i please get more information. Is it new? Are you 100% it's plugged in correctly? They usually don't just do nothing. You usually get a sequence of beeps alerting of an error. This may mean a power supply issue.

Lights on but no one home...

This could be one of many things: First off if the set up is new and you just put it all together try removing all the IDE/SATA cables and see if that helps. If the machine then boots you know one of those devices is faulty or setup wrong. If that does not help, remove the RAM modules and try again - this may invoke a different error as the board may not want to boot without any RAM but you should notice a change. If no change then it could be the CPU or power supply unit (PSU) The MOST likely problem is that the PSU has given up or is not producing enough juice or is producing too high a voltage. The only way to check this effectively is to try a different PSU. I had a customer who brough me a machine which had stopped booting. He was told by a "friend" the CPU & mainboard had failed so he bought a new CPU and mainboard. The machine still did not boot and in fact the power supply was producing to high a voltage and had fried the mainboard and CPU. Then it fried the second CPU and mainboard he put in. Expensive mistake... so make sure you replace the power supply (or have it fully tested buy an expert) BEFORE you add any new parts to the set up.

Mach speed motherboard problem

I had the same problem once. I took it to CompUSA to have them diagnose the problem, and they said I fried the motherboard or CPU. The fans turn on just because your power supply is on.
