Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop

1 Answer

PC won't start - Moved from Australia 240V 4 amps to US 110V 8 amps

PC does nothing when pressing the start button post traveling halfway around the world.

Not sure if the trip effected the hard drives too, but the power supply seems to indicate it can accept the US 100 volts. Everything seems to have traveled well in the move, and all teh internal components seem to be OK, although I'm not sure how to test the hard drives.

When i moved my pc the monitor,mouse,keyboard quit.when push button on monitor it displays power saver on & goes off/it also beeps 4-6 times when turned on.

When you moved your pc you probably knocked the graphics card loose. You can open it up and try re-seating it. Make sure you unplug the pc first and then press the on button for 10 seconds to clear out all the power from the power supply before opening the computer up.

Also, If you are using a KVM... Unplug the KVM's power cord for 30 seconds and plug it back in. That will reset it.

How do you get into the bios

When you first start your computer, it will go to the computer manufacturer 'splash screen'. (Manufacturer logo)

At the bottom of this screen tells you the key, or keys to press, to enter BIOS Setup.

This window of opportunity goes by real f-a-s-t.
The best method is to find what key, or keys need to be pressed, to enter BIOS Setup.

Then as SOON AS YOU PRESS THE POWER ON BUTTON, start tapping in 2 second intervals, on that key, or keys.
This way you won't go past the window of opportunity.

{ You may hear a beep, or beeps, as you tap on the key/s. This is a Stuck key Error Code, and is nothing to worry about }

There are many different keys used to enter BIOS Setup, for a computer. (Desktop or laptop)

This may help,

1) When in BIOS Setup you can no longer use the mouse. You have to use the Keyboard.

2) At the bottom of every screen in BIOS Setup, is listed a navigation guide. It is Not labeled Navigation Guide.
This tells you how to get around. (Navigate around)

3) Use the appropriate key on the Keyboard, to highlight the area you wish to go into, and then the specific parameter you wish to change.
Then press the Enter key.

4) Unless you Save Changes, it will be like you have just looked around, and done nothing.

5) Look at the parameters already set. You may wish to write them down. IF, you make a mistake in the BIOS Setup utility, you can go back, and set the parameters back to the way they were.

Also in the navigation guide to the right, it usually tells you what key to press to go back to the factory default settings.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

{ If you want more than generic information, you have to at least post the computer manufacturer name, and Model Number, in a Comment }

Hp compaq dc7100 cmt can't start. 9 beeps and led red


9 beeps means that the input voltage to the PC's power supply is incorrect, have you changed the switch at the back of the PC from 110 to 240v or vice versa. If the PC was not bought in the UK then it may be set to 110v in which case the voltage selector at the back of the PC needs to be changed to 240v. If there is no voltage selector would recommend changing the power supply.

If by changing the selector to the correct voltage it still beeps 9 times you are looking at a new power supply unit which you can buy from HP at a high cost or buy a used one from:

Hope this helps!!!

Dear sir! my dell optiplex gx 150 won't start when i press the power button but power supply will be start and pc can't give any beep ?

try to remove the power cable on that product and then hold the power button for 8 secs. Reinsert back the power cable and press the power button. If it won't turn on, then the power supply is the main cause of trouble. Contact dell right away for repair...

I bought this computer in japan and has following power specification: 100-110v 6A and 200-240v 3A . wondering if it can be used without any problem in singapore?


If you don't know whether your devices can handle European electrical systems check the capacity of your devices and appliances before traveling. A gadget that has a dual voltage system usually indicates a 110-220 voltage, which means that you can use it in both American and European plugs and sockets.

Since your computer has "DUAL VOLTAGE" system it can be used any where in the world.

I have a Cisnet C-28 and I'm moving to Australia. I cannot find out if the computer is compatible with 220/240v.. do you know?

Read the Cisnet AC adapter. It should say input:120-240V, 50-60Hz to work with 240v power anywhere in the world. You just need an outlet adapter for the country you're in.

Ive never had this fault but it could be possible. My first reaction is to swap the Power supply unit. or simply just check that the voltage is set correctly for your country. if UK 240v if US 110v little slide on back of power supply unit. Try plugging the power cord into a different socket first though my be you electricity socket at fault.

Hope this is some help
