Question about Dell Dimension 8200 AUD System Board (0F141) Motherboard

Open Question

Dell Dimension 8200 DVD Writer cord, and PWR LED Green

First off the cord on the DVD writer (labeled DigitalAudio/AnalogAudio) is not plugged in, and I cannot find the place to plug it in. The jack is a 4-hole female, and Ive got no clue where it goes. A diagram would be a great help.

Second (this is the more important though), when the power cord is plugged into the computer the PWR LED CTRL lights up green, and there is a high pitched whine. When the power button is pressed it blinks orange and the whine starts varying in pitch. Any form of advice would be good about now.

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 8100 Power On Reset Problem

Hi, Considering that this motherboard/model is a couple of years, it may be possible that: 1. Components have changed value seriously affecting performance. Predominant are capacitors near the CPU that have blisters, swollen or lost part of or completely its storage capacity. Next in line would be resistors and regulators specially those close to the memory slots. 2. If you have any USB device connected, try removing them while booting; 3. BIOS may be outdated/corrupt, flash the BIOS to the latest firmware if and when you were able to boot it up using the fdd (pls be informed of the inherent possible failure when flashing). On your other concerns: a. "...reset jumper..." - temporarily short the RTCRST pins near the battery. You may also try moving the PSWD from its default position (enabled) to disabled; b. "...pinouts on front panel ribbon cable connector..." sorry even the Dell site that I have access does not have info. It might be a bit difficult getting a replacement motherboard being a socket 423. Another item to be taken into consideration is that your motherboard still uses PC800 RDRAM 184-pin RIMM Memory. To sum, if you will replace the motherboard, chances are you will also have to replace the processor and memory. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 9200 flashing orange light

My first suggestion would be to completely remove the power from the PC. Wether you remove the cable form the back or switch of at the wall shouldnt make a differenence. Go out shopping for a while plug it back in and give it another go. Sometimes giving it time alone to itself can rectify a lot of issues.

If the pc is still under warranty try and get it looked at under the warranty agreement. If it is out of warranty you will probably need to get an IT store to look at it for you. I wouldnt be surprised if Dell has installed a special screw that requires a special screw driver bit to remove it.

SOURCE: hello at first i have

Well seeing as how im Dell certified, I can help you or you can go to the dell support site and look at the error code manual and it will tell you.

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

and heer is directly to the light diagnostics information, read it and find what is closest to what you have.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx280/en/ug/tools02.htm#wp1114432

Go to system trouble lights.

Most likely you have a bad memory stick or the mother board is going bad.

Im pretty sure your warranty is out, unless you have an extended. You can check the warranty infomation by entering the service tag number at support.dell.com Or just give it to me and i can check for you. Its a sticker on the back with a bar code and about 7 digits or so, kind of like ( 071BH7) or something simialr.

Also, Dell has had a major problem with that model and the mother boards blowing capacitors, Once we know what the issue is, hoepfully we can get this resolved.

What type is it, Small form factor, Desktop, Smal form desktop, Tower ?

Let me knoe, and we can get going.

SOURCE: Dell Dimension E310 not booting

Unplug Motherboard completely from all power. Remove RAM and all ISA/PCI/PCI-E/AGP cards out carefully and wait like 5 minutes. Try again using only bare essentials: Video card and 1 stick of ram. Alternate RAM is possible if it doesn't work. Try a New Video Card if nothing else works... Most MB manufacturers will have a chart that has the beep codes so you can at least narrow it down if not solve it by the beeps.

SOURCE: battery will not charge on a dell d610 when plugged into outlet

I have seen this with faulty batteries.
Try changing the battery.
Also, check in the BIOS that the adapter you are using is recognised and shows a state of charging with the battery in.

What is the maximum ram capacity of dimension 8200 motherboard


2 gygabytoes are usually the max, you could upgrade the OS to maybe Windows XP 64 bit, but this isn't worth it in such an olde machine! Throw it out and get yourself an ASUS laptop with Windows 7 64-bit, a solid state HD and 4 or more gigabytes of ram instead!.

The back of my Dell Dimension 8200 has a Yellow RCA video out next to the normal Monitor hook up, i plugged a rca cord into it and hooked it to my tv but no picture, how do i get it to work?


Did you take the remote to the tv and click Select Input. Then select thr RCA where the tv should get the signal from (It might say Component or RCA).

Did you try toggling the video?

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Need cmos jumper location on Dell Dimension 8200 to bypass bios password


From what I can gather, you just need to locate the jumper labeled PSWD and remove it. Turn computer back on, then back off. Replace jumper pin and turn computer back on. That should do it. Removing the jumper disables password. Turning on computer resets it. Replacing jumper re-enables password capability.
