Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
On power up only fans turn on desktop was not in use for 3 months
Open up the case and unplug everythng except for these items :
(video card if no onboard video)
and see if it comes on, if it does, then add each hardware part one at a time to find the bad one.
If it still doesnt respond, unplug all power and remove the CMOS Battery on the Motherboard. Then let it sit for 5 minutes. Then try it again.
If that still doesnt fix the problem then you will have to get some new or "Known to be good" hardware to swap out the parts above.
If your using a new Power Supply & Memory and the only thing else thats still plugged in is the Motherboard & CPU and still no no screen, then odds are its the Motherboard...
Hope this helps, when the problem is down to this basic level, the only thing you can do is try other parts doing the "trial and error" aproch.
