Question about Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop
Hi all, My 8300's power button has been acting strange; it requires a few pushes to turn on the computer. The frequencies increased last few days and now it completely refuses to repond. I checked the connector on the system board, checked the cable and called Dell Tech Support; but still can't figure out what's the problem. Dell Technician suggested changing the power supply, but he is not sure if that's going to solve the problem. I am thinking perhaps the power button is not working, but I don't know how to take off the front cover to examine it. Dell Technician suggested going to a repair store, but that's going to costly and not necessary helpful. Hope someone can help me here. Thanks. Skyer
Most front covers have screws that hold them to the chassis. Unscrew the screws and be careful not to break any wire connections to your front panel. Then you'll be able to examine the power switch.
