Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop
I was changing out a monitor chord when my Dell Dimension 3000 powered off. Changed cords, plugged into different outlets but all I get is a blinking front light. No diagnostic panel lights light up on the back, no fan at all or any other sound. Took the cover off and there's a solid green light on what I suppose is the mother board. Awfully odd coincidence that it went out while I was moving it, but there it is.
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)
