Question about Dell POWER SUPPLY Power Supply
I'm not ready to part with my trusty Dimension. It multitasks quite happily under Win2000. It has however developed an annoying quirk. When I switch it off (either full shutdown or hibernate) it will now switch itself back on after a delay ranging from 1 second to 30 minutes. My workaround is to unplug it from the wall as soon as it clicks off after a power-down. I suspect this is probably a power supply problem. Any thoughts?
Well try this to check some settings.
1. Reboot computer and hit F2 to go to the BIOS settings.(you may have to keep pressing F2 until you see that it is going into setup)
2. Once in the BIOS you will have to use the arrow keys to move around and there is a key at the bottom. Move to the Power section and hit enter.
3. Check and make sure that the settings for Power up on PCI/PCIE Devices is off.
4. Check and make sure that Auto Power On is Disabled.
5. AC Recovery is off.
6. If all the settings are done, hit ESC to exit the menu.
7. Arrow key over to Exit.
8. Hit enter and comfirm save settings.
If all the settings are correct, then you are quite possibly correct in it being the power supply.
Hope this helps.
