I don't know what TRIPS out sounds like, but there are number of different things that could make sounds when powered up. Let me know what and where the sounds are coming from. I am including a link for delll support for your system. Let me know if I can be of any more help. Larry

During a recent thunderstorm, the power fluctuated and my dell dimension 3000 turned off. There was popping sound and now I cannot power on the computer. When I take off the side panel, I can see a green...


The popping sound is most likely your power supply or something on your system-board like a capacitor.
If the problem is only the power supply:
If you want to see if you can salvage it try just replacing the power supply. The part is around forty dollars. You can google "Dell Dimension 3000 250w power supply" to find a deal on a power supply.Here is a link on how to replace the power supply in that computer.

Installed new dell motherboard per tech, installed new Dell power supply as it died too. This is a Dell Dimension 2300. It won't start.


Check all connections, to the motherboard, and also to the wall Verify that the power supply is actually switched into the ON position at the rear of the computer.

My dell dimension 2300 powers on,but nothing shows on the screen and i just got a brand new power supply for it.Also when i turn it on the power light isn't lit and it sometimes works.


Hi,
Could you please post back with the status of four lights at the back of the system title ABCD. Also does the system shows the dell logo on the screen as and when the power light comes on.

Try removing the memory and disconnect the HDD and the optical drives from the motherboard and then power on the system. If the system comes on reseat all the above components one by one.
Thank You for using Fixya

I have a dell dimension 2300 that turns on, but the power light won't light up and the screen is blank.Is it a motherboard problem or power supply problem.


I've run into the problem several times and it can be both.Your best bet would be to try the power supply first, being the cheaper and easier of the two. If you have another desktop you could try swapping the power supplies to test (make note of which plug goes where, it's fairly simple as long as you pay attention).

If you don't have a spare then it's possible a local tech store would have one you can purchase or pay them a small fee to test for you.

If swapping them doesn't work then it points at the motherboard.

Hope this helps :)

When i plug the power into my dell pc it sounds like it's tripping out! what could this be and why dose it happen? thanks! anyone help me.


is the sound coming from your fan on the power supply, if is it turn off the computer and check to see if the fan had a lot of dirt on it. if it does use a can of air to clean it out. try turning on your computer to see if tht cures the problem.

Dell Dimension 2300 - NO POWER


you will need to replace your power supply by the sounds of it, pending on your devices, a 450 to 500 watt power supply should do the trick.
Just make sure that you have the proper power connections on it like the IDE connectors or sata
