Question about Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop
Hey, thanks for responding to my question. My computer will start ususally on the first try if I open the case and take off the large aluminum cooling tower over the processor chip and then place it back on..Works almost every time. If I try to start the computer without the cooling tower, it won't start. So it is usually easier to leave the computer on for weeks. do you still think that sounds like the motherboard?
IT MEANS that the processor is not getting cooled enough, try turning on the comptuer with the side panel open, dont reseat the cooling tower, however also check for the four lights on the back of the tower and post the same,,
