Question about Dell Dimension 8400 power supply ** FREE ** (D8400SATA300W24PINB) Power Supply
My Dell Dimension 8400 stopped powering up last year and was giving a blinking amber light. It stayed like this for about a month and then powered up one day!! It was fine all last year except for once when it did the same thing then powered up after one day. Last week, it did the same thing and is not powering up!! What is up? The problem seems so random.
p.s. I bought it from the states but I am using it overseas where the power is 240 not 110. Also, its power supply was damaged before due to a misconnection and was replaced by the original Dell Dimension 8400 power supply from Dell.
Any idea what is going on? Is this a common problem with the power supply of this model?
It not a common problem. The problem that you are facing is is beacuse of faulty motherboard. The blinking amber is caused , becasue the motherboard is not able to distribute the power signal to the devices .
