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.
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.

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.
