Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

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 light on the motherboard when the computer is plugged in; but when I press the on button, nothing happens.

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.

Hope that helps.

My Dell Inspiron 530 wont turn on


yes buy a power supply. I have seen hundreds of computers that have gone through storms. Remember a Dell usually uses a special power supply.
For a good deal look on ebay for your specific model, They almost always have "Buy it Now" deals.

Video card errors


if possible for you to take data backup - do that ASAP.
During POST [ Power On Self Test] turn on RAM checking [ disable fast mode checking ] from your BIOS/CMOS setup.
unplug and replug all H/W amd card connections - especially IDE SATA and PCI and RAM. Check if the fans are OK - get free from doubts - if the CPU cooling is the problem or not.
If all these do not help - it could be a virus problem.
If possible - do reload the OS and drivers from the scratch - get a good Anti-Virus and check your back-up data before copying them back.

Dell Dimension Shut Down


Hi

You query suggest you have Dell Dimension 3000. Dell Dimension 3000 is a desktop PC and does not have a battery backup by itself.

I am assuming the battery backup you are referring to is a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). If this is correct then by your description of the issues, the UPS may be faulty (indicated by the Red light and beeping).

Disconnect the computer's power cord from the UPS and connect it to a wall power outlet to confirm or rule out the UPS as the offending device.

If this does not help reply with more info

Here is the download page for the Dimension 3000 (Windows XP): http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/devices.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&SystemID=DIM_CEL_3000&os=WW1&osl=EN Go to the audio driver page and assuming you have the built-in audio card this should take care of you. If you by chance have some other operating system here is the link that will allow you to select the correct one. http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?
