Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
My Dell dimension 8200 will not power up when I hit the power button.
I did check and there is pwer to the mother board, I know this because the LED light on the mother board is on.
It's very possible that your power supply has gone bad. A friend of mine brought me a Dimension 8200 to look at a few months ago that was acting exactly like yours. At first glance, I assumed that the power supply was ok because the LED on the motherboard was lit up. I decided to check the power supply with a tester and found out that the only live lead was the +5 VSB (5 volt stand by) which explains the LED being on. I replaced the factory 250 watt power supply with a 350 watt and it happily booted up. Keep in mind though that you may need to make a slight modification in order to use a non-Dell power supply. I had to make the opening in the back of the case slightly larger so I could plug the power cord into the power supply.
