Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
Cannot get power supply on. power switch is fine. unplugged everything 2 or 3 times. tried all power up procedures. the motherboard power light is green, steady. heard about this problem before, forgot the fix.
Unplug the computer from the AC. Push the power button down for 5 seconds. Unplug the power and IO to each device and remove memory chips. Plug the computer back into AC. See if you get POST(a beeping noise). It should beep once. If you get a series of beeps report them back here. i.e. one long beep, followed by 2 short beeps. If you get POST put memory back in and repeat. Next install the video card and repeat, Next plug the Hard Drive in and repeat. Repeat with the rest, CD, DVD, etc. If one of the devices is bad you will find the problem.

Hey there aj1253, It seems you are getting power to the board. are the fans running?Are you using onboard video or video card. Onboard is suggested for test. I would also suggest you reseat your ram. That is removing it and ensuring it seats properly. Beyond that I would ask you provide more info ( ie is this a new build, or did it just stop working, configuration details, model #'s, et....)
