Question about Dell OPTIPLEX 745 PC Desktop
Hi! My problem is that I had to move to Europe and I brought my computer with me. I plugged it to the wall socket and then a split second a pop sound and the computer does not work at all. I admit I did forget to flip the switch on the back, I was on a rush to get things packed as quickly as possible. And I totaly forgot about that and I forgot to look on the back to see. What's wrong and what can I do? Does it have fuses and where are they? Please can you help me?

You have fried your power supply. If you are lucky, that is all you have done but when it blew, there is a chance it sent a surge that also damaged the motherboard or some other component.

SOURCE: Dell Optiplex Power-on Problem
An Amber or Yellow power button means that the power supply is receiving power from the source but is unable to properly distribute it to the components. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc...
Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

No boot device means that the computer cannot find a drive that has a operating system files and therefore cannot boot up.
This usually means that the hard drive in the computer is faulty.
You need to get a new hard drive and install Windows on the hard drive, together with the drivers for the computer's installed devices and programs to get a working computer.

you can go to dells website and click support drivers and downloads type in the service tag of the machine (its 7 letters and nubers found on CPU Ex: BF14FJ1) and based on the service tag the correct audio drivers should be displayed for you to download.
