Hi,
Could you please post back with the status of four lights at the back of the system title ABCD. Also does the system shows the dell logo on the screen as and when the power light comes on.

Try removing the memory and disconnect the HDD and the optical drives from the motherboard and then power on the system. If the system comes on reseat all the above components one by one.
Thank You for using Fixya

It seems like it that you have a faulty power supply. Also the motherboard may be damged aswell, But most probably you can fix your PC by changing the power supply.

Installed new dell motherboard per tech, installed new Dell power supply as it died too. This is a Dell Dimension 2300. It won't start.


Check all connections, to the motherboard, and also to the wall Verify that the power supply is actually switched into the ON position at the rear of the computer.

My dell dimension 4700C turned on and then cut off. Now it won't turn on at all. I have check the power supply and even connected with a new power cord. Nothing happens.


you will probably have to replace the power supply, its not uncommon for them to go bad from power surges, and from what you have said it sounds like the power supply has becomoe a victim of a power surge

I have a dell dimension 2300 that turns on, but the power light won't light up and the screen is blank.Is it a motherboard problem or power supply problem.


I've run into the problem several times and it can be both.Your best bet would be to try the power supply first, being the cheaper and easier of the two. If you have another desktop you could try swapping the power supplies to test (make note of which plug goes where, it's fairly simple as long as you pay attention).

If you don't have a spare then it's possible a local tech store would have one you can purchase or pay them a small fee to test for you.

If swapping them doesn't work then it points at the motherboard.

Hope this helps :)

Dell Dimension not turning on.


I recently had to replace both the switch and the power supply for a Dimension 2300. Same era I suppose.
You can take the power supply to a local tech person and have it load tested to see if that's the failure. If you have a working power supply, they can show you how it's possible to bridge the connection from the switch at the motherboard, and if your system boots then the switch is bad.
A replacement switch is about $10.00 from Dell, if you can get them to send you the right remanufactured item. After 4 tries, I ended up having to solder a new switch to the old mb connector to get it working. The item is called something like Control Panel I/O Assembly, but use your service tag to find the right part.
All I can say is that if they substitute for the part you ordered, don't bother trying to correct the situation, just look for a soldering iron. But who knows, they might actually have your part!
In fact, I probably do!
BTW, don't keep jiggling that switch. I suspect that's how I did the power supply in...

Dell dimension 2300


I don't know what TRIPS out sounds like, but there are number of different things that could make sounds when powered up. Let me know what and where the sounds are coming from. I am including a link for delll support for your system. Let me know if I can be of any more help. Larry

Dell Dimension 2300 - NO POWER


you will need to replace your power supply by the sounds of it, pending on your devices, a 450 to 500 watt power supply should do the trick.
Just make sure that you have the proper power connections on it like the IDE connectors or sata

Have a yellow amber light blinking


A Blinking 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... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.
