I press the power button on my dell 8300 Dimension and everything goes well until the CD goes to spin up at high RPM and then everything dies. Do you think it is the power supply?

I am trying to re-install windows xp on a DELL dimension 8300 but it does'nt boot it can go to the BIOS and everything but it say Boot.mgr is missing


You should use the bootable Windows XP CD to start the installation.
To do that, you must first enter the BIOS in the Boot Options select the DVD drive as first (so that it will boot from CD/DVD first, instead of the hard disk). Save and Exit, insert the bootable Windows XP CD in the drive and when prompted to do so, "press any key to boot from CD-Rom".
Hope the above helps.

Hello,

1.Press Start> ShutDown> Restart and OK. It will power down and restart (reboot).

If you cannot do that (for wathever reason), press the Power Down button for about 10 seconds. The computer will turn off. After that you will be able to turn it back on again.

How do I remove the power button on Dell Dimension 8300 desktop


open the side- and along the just inside the front exposed edge there are several tab that get push inward to release the front. They have a tendency to catch again when you go to the next one...you'll just have to play with it a bit. once that is open you'll see the other little plastic tab that holds the switch assembly . Don't forget to UNPLUG the power supply.

Dell Dimension 8300 wouldn't start


Sounds like a power supply. You are getting the standby voltage and not the switched. plug all your wires in except the big 20 or 24 pin motherboard connector, take a small wire and short the green (PSU_ON) to black (ground) wires. This will simulate the computers "ON" signal. The fans should all spin up and your plugged in accessories should work, which means bad motherboard, if not bad power supply.

Will not start


That's just about the opposite of what most systems would like. The colder they are, the better they run. There's a good chance your power supply is dying. Also, check and make sure the vents are not clogged with dust.
