I'm getting a repeat beeping sound whenever I start up the computer. It's also giving an amber lights.


Definitely not a hard drive problem. It would boot, but not go to windows. This is one of two things. Power supply failure (most likely), or one of the RAM sticks went bad. I would try testing the RAM by taking one out, and trying to turn it on. Do this with both, or all four (depending on how many you have). If it still doesn't work, I would think that the Power Supply is the issue.

Dell has a set of codes that would tell you what the exact error would be based on the blinks of the amber light. If you find the pattern, you can look that up. In my professional experience it's normally the power supply.

During a recent thunderstorm, the power fluctuated and my dell dimension 3000 turned off. There was popping sound and now I cannot power on the computer. When I take off the side panel, I can see a green...


The popping sound is most likely your power supply or something on your system-board like a capacitor.
If the problem is only the power supply:
If you want to see if you can salvage it try just replacing the power supply. The part is around forty dollars. You can google "Dell Dimension 3000 250w power supply" to find a deal on a power supply.Here is a link on how to replace the power supply in that computer.

No panel lights, no fan, flashing front left light


the blinking lights means power issue. If you already plugged the computers power cable directly to the wall and stll get the blinking power light then your probably looking at a bad power supply in the computer.
Just for measures go into the system and if you have a video card remove it and start the system up. Also take out the memory stick and put them back in just incase during the move some components got loose. Put on your detective hat and check all connects. if problem still persist replace the power supply. In Computers terms thats called the PSU (power supply unit)

When powering up, the CDROM light just blinks every second


Troubleshoot the problem this way. If the clicking noise comes from the CDROM then disconnect the power and ribbon cable from the rear of the CDROM and attempt to boot your PC again. If you think there is a CDROM stuck in the drive (and due to settings that let CDs such as Windows install disks boot from the CD ROM), You can get the CD out with the PC off by getting a large paperclip, and after straigtrning out the wire, you will see a small hole in the front of the CDROM drive usually below the tray that comes out for you to put the CD in. Push the paperclip in firmly, and the tray will pop out, letting you get your CD out. Retry booting after the CD has been removed.

My Dell Deiension 3000 stopped, no sound, no picture. When I plug power to the tower, the power light comes on,a green light on the mother board comes on, and the fan on the power supply comes on.


This sounds like video card. Can be ether drivers or card it self. Try booting in to safe mode by pressing f8 on boor and if it does not work or it does not show option on screen when you do this it means it is issue with card it self. Hope this helps.

Dell 8200 Dimension shuts down on bootup. Making


The clinking sound could well be your drive heads snapping back into parking location if your power supply is going out. Since the 8200 comes with a pretty weak power supply those tend to go out shortly after you've upgraded to a better graphics card or added another drive to the system. I've replaced mine a few times and now have a 450 watt supply in it which seems to be able to handle a powered video card and the 2nd HD, 2nd dvd without running out of juice.
Another good thing for these old dimensions is the addition of a case /slot fan to help with cooling a bit more. (see included picture)
I've had dealings with a number of dimensions from this era not cooling enough and the slot fans really helped stability.5a04930.gif
Let me know if any of this helps your situation.

Computer will not turn on


  • Blinking Amber/yellow: Initial state of LED at power up.
    Indicates system has power, but the POWER_GOOD signal is not yet active.
    If the hard drive LED is off, it is probable that the power supply needs to be replaced.
    If the hard drive LED is on, it is probable that an onboard regulator or VRM has failed.
