    Why are you trying to do this, I cannot follow your logic? The switch mode power supply is powered on by sensing contact switch on the motherboard. Are you trying to use the ATX switch mode power supply as a 12V and/or 5V power supply for a project without connecting it to a motherboard? Please let me know what you are trying to do.

The only thing to do at this point is to replace the Power Supply with a KNOWN to be good, compatible unit, and see if the rest of the computer hardware components are okay.

Going by your information stated that the Power Supply is an Enhance ENP-2224B SMPS, (Switched-Mode Power Supply), it is a special shape.

If it wasn't for the Slim Micro-ATX computer case you have, you could use an easy to obtain ATX form factor Power Supply.

From a quick search though it looks like a replacement unit is affordable,

http://www.censuspc.com/Enhance-ENP-2224B-2G-240W-SATA-TFX12V-P4-Power-Supply-for-Slim-microATX-Desktop-Case-Serial-ATA-Ready-bulk-pack-SKU-ENP-2224B-2G-pr-3033.html

There is simply no way to tell if the motherboard, and/or Processor, and/or Ram Memory, and/or Harddrive, etc., is okay without having power.
Unless you transfer the components on the motherboard to another working motherboard.

[NOTE*
If your Power Supply has a rocker switch on the back that lets you use 120 volts, or 220 volts, make SURE it is set to the right voltage.

USA?
120 Volts
Europe?
220 Volts
Australia?
220 Volts
Japan?
100 Volts ]

There is no power switch on the enhance atx 1123b that I have . What actually powers it up?


Just about every power supply I've owned doesn't have a power switch. The power supply is turned on by one of the wires in the 24 pin connector. According to this it looks to be pin 16 and how to turn it on:

"Short this pin to GND to switch power supply ON, disconnect from GND to switch OFF."

Hope this helps

Normally the front panel on/off power button and the front panel reset button plug into connector pins on your motherboard.

If you can find a User Manual for your motherboard it will show you exactly where the switch leads plug in on the motherboard. The motherboard's manufacturer and model number will be printed on the board somewhere.


Good luck.

You can use just about any WATT power supply. The demand of wattage is limited to the use of each item that the computer needs to operate correctly. So you can't blow out your system if you install everything correctly and properly. So you could install a 1Giga Watt with safety. Make sure that the power supply that you get fills the needs of your video card.. Reference the video card box for the proper Power supply..

No power up no post no nothing on dimension 3100


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. It sounds like you have isolated the problem to the motherboard since you removed everything but the board and power supply. You may be able to locate one by browsing the internet. Just type in “DELL Dimension 3100 motherboard” and see if you can locate one at a reasonable price.
