Hello,

The dell Dimension 8200 motherboard like several other Dell boards uses a multi pin header for the power button. This plus is at the front of the board right behind the hard drive connectors. The plus has pins for power, hard drive light, sound, 2 USB ports, power light and microphone. Are you wanting to just coeect the power button and not the other pins? I may be able to get you a pin by pin wiring chart but other things really need to be pugged in too. This board will not work very well without the other things plugged in or if it is not in a Dell case.

Dell dimension 8200 help


A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. 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... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

What is the maximum ram capacity of dimension 8200 motherboard


2 gygabytoes are usually the max, you could upgrade the OS to maybe Windows XP 64 bit, but this isn't worth it in such an olde machine! Throw it out and get yourself an ASUS laptop with Windows 7 64-bit, a solid state HD and 4 or more gigabytes of ram instead!.

Why does my dimension 8200 dell desktop say "strike f1 to retry boot, f2 for setup utility"


Rduy Cruz,
This error message references that your system Primary hard drive is not being Detected in the system. You can press F2 to enter the setup to see if the hard drive is even being seen. If not, exit out and shutdown the system. Unplug the power cable and open the computer to reseat the hard drive cables at the hard drive and at the motherboard connection. If that does not resolve the issue you may need to replace the hard drive IDE cable.If all this does not work you may need to replace the hard drive. Please post back if this does not resolve the issue.Below is a link to your online manual for your computer.

Main power button LED is flashing or solid yellow


This is a major problem that crippled Dell. Moels Optiplex Gx260, Gx 280, and Dimensions of whose mdel number i don't remember have this problems. This signal shows that either a power supply or your motherboard is malfunctioning. If you have an insurance better use it now or else get some technical assistance.

Broke power button dell dimension 8200


your best bet would be to take it to your local computer repair shop in the hope they are willing to just help you out as it's a very easy repair. failing that ask them if they have a spare switch of the samae type you need and repair it yourself. they normaly have lots of spare bits lieing around they might just give to you.

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
