When I turn on the dell dimension 8200 the light on the power button does not turn green, it stays amber color blinking and the computer does not turn on, is it the power supply that is gone bad?

Check all below possibilties & see if it works.....
  1. GGGY diagnostic lights can indicate a bad motherboard, or possibly a hard drive failure.You could try opening the case, then remove and reseat all the power and data cables, cards and memory and see if the system bootsCheck for burnt/charred power connectors on the motherboard and for any capacitors with bulging tops or are leaking, the tops should be perfectly flat.
  2. Could you please check out if the you are not having a battery problem. This could be the source of all the trouble that you are having.
  3. do the fans and hard drives spin

My dell beeps once then three times then twice. just a blank screen

Thats called a post beep. You may need a new power supply....also check your internal fans to make sure they are spinning. Make sure memory is seated properly. Motherboard may also be in question. Try unplugging letting it sit for a few then plugging back in.

Dell Dimension 8200 does not power up.

i have had the same problem it is a very simple way to fix you need to unplug the main power that goes to the motherboard and use a paper click to jump it and then quickly plug it in.
im sorry but i do not remember which 2 slots to use the paper click on but i know 1 was black and when you unplug your pc you will have to repeat this process each time

"my computer will only beep no screen,it beeps


You likely have a bad memory module. First, try removing all the memory and putting it back in again. This is called reseating. If you still get the errors, then try removing one stick at a time and testing it with each stick (provided, of course, you have more than one stick installed). If you only have one stick installed, remove it and turn on the computer and it should beep at you as well. That memory stick will need to be replaced.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya. Thank you.

Dell Dimemsion 8200 Won't Boot - Beeping Sequence 5-2-2-1

Often simply disconnecting the power cable, holding power button for 15 seconds, release power button, plug back in will work

Otherwise remove CMOS battery and perform above operation

Hope it works

Motherboard blew up

I would recommend buying a replacement computer, and install the Dell IDE drive in an external 3.5" IDE hard drive enclosure. This way you can pull your information off the the Dell hard drive, and then blow it away.

Keep in mind that new computers use a SATA drive, your old Dell '8200 has an IDE drive. Also keep in mind that your Dimension 8200 drivers won't work on the new computer.

You might be able to install your Dell drive as a slave if you have an open IDE channel available.

Good news is, your old Dell uses RAMBUS memory, which is worth a lot. It's a good parts computer, and most people who look for computer parts know of the bad capacitor issue on Intel made Dell motherboards from that era.

Dimension 8200 will not turn on

Try a new power button. Also does the machine power light turn on at the front of the machine? if so check that the CPU is seated correctly as if it has come out of position then the machine doesn't boot. I would like to think power switch though.

Thanks J
