I aquired a dell demension 8300 i know nuthing of it but just tryed to fire it up and nuthing but light on front panel and fans and led on motherbourd is on and no diagnostics lights on back light up at all
All you have to do is replace the power supply, and the computer will come on. What has transpired, is the power supply went out, and the people you received the computer from, didn't know that. Too bad, as this is a cheap fix, and easy to do.
Do you have another desktop computer, that you can borrow a power supply out of for a test?
The Dimension 8300 uses the standard ATX power supply, that about 98% of computers out there do.
The Dell Dimension 8300 uses a Pentium 4 processor.
Uses either DDR Sdram at 333MHz (PC2700) or DDR Sdram at 400MHz (PC3200)
Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram is 4GB
Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.
Motherboard chipset is Intel 875P
Has an AGP 8X slot for a graphics card. (Remember that it's AGP 8X. This is the best version of the AGP style graphics cards. They still sell them)
Has four PCI slots.
Uses an IDE harddrive. (IDE is also referred to as EIDE, ATA, and PATA)
Has either a 250 Watt power supply, or a 305 Watt power supply. Back when this computer was made, power supply's actually only put out 70 percent, of the stated maximum wattage. Not the computer manufacturers fault, it was the power supply manufacturer. (The power supply's are made by somebody else, just like all the parts are for a pre-built computer) The power supply manufacturer had the tendency to 'fudge' the Wattage rating up a little. Made the power supply look better.
A computer will only use the power it needs, and no more. I don't care if you put a 10,000 Watt (Exaggeration. They don't make them for a personal computer) power supply in your computer,
if it only needs 100 Watts, it only uses 100 Watts. (Like surfing the internet)
I recommend this $30, reliable, decent power supply. It's a 350 Watt unit,
