Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
To boot the Dimension, I have removed the side cover and use a fan heater to warm it up. After a few minutes the heat causes the coling fan to start and then the computer will switch on via the on/off button. This has to repeated whenever it is switched on.
Do you reckon the power supply unit could be the culprit.
The computer is 3 years old and is used in our house which is at normal house temperature.
There's one way to find out - this is a list of power supplies for your unit on ebay, swap it out to see if the problem persists.
If you want to do it at the local level just find yourself a 400w ATX power supply that you can take back after testing (your machine may require a specific power supply and the ATX may not be mountable in your PC).
Post back with your findings.
