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 BIOS may be outdated/corrupt, flash the BIOS to the latest firmware if and when you were able to boot it up using the fdd (pls be informed of the inherent possible failure when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.

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: Computer wont turn on

I had the same problem here. And sure enough it was the USB socket that had been bent inside or broken off. Basically the pins were touching the sides of the casing and causing it to short on power up.

I used the method suggested above - get a screwdriver and (MAKING SURE THE POWER IS OFF) bend the pins from the USB socket back into shape so they are no longer touching the side casing. The USB port is unusable but the machine powered up straight away and is now working fine.

Thanks for your help!!

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.

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

Where do I get a dvd drive for the Dell dimension 2300


The dell dimension takes a standard DVD drive, CDRW or DVD writer. Simply go to your local superstore and buy one thats on sale. Buy one that goes internal not external. For example a place like Best Buy has several.

Dell E510 Missing CD & DVD Drives...nothing is working yet...


you can buy that type of hardware anywhere since it is standard for all desktop. Your current drive is IDE meaning that the data cable on it is an IDE type.
Go to your local computer store and ask for a DVD writer IDE, since there is really no price difference now for a combo or dvd writer drive, it will be like 10 $ more for the writer. I live in canada so if you are in the US could be less here a DVD writer is around 35 $ at a computer shop.

Here is the spec of your computer just in case :

Use Master/Slave setup. It makes no difference which drive is in which position, you just have to set the jumper on the drive. Cable position makes no difference as long as the jumper is set correctly.
