It could be a bad power supply. As far as I remember, this unit has a standard ATX 230 watt power supply. It should not be too hard to replace it. Its fairly straight-forward. Its a matter of removing the panel to access the connectors inside (make note of which comes from where) and unscrewing the power supply on the back of the unit. Reverse all actions to install new power supply. If you need more detailed help, reply to this post.

Dimension 3100 turns on the power button has a steady orange light there is also an orange light on motherboard cpu and power suplly fans working but wont bot up


Blinking amber (orange) indicates a problem with the power supply inside the computer. If the system cannot boot and there is a solid amber light, this could indicate a problem with the power connections for the CPU on the system board (see "Power Problems" in your Owner's Manual).

2 light is lit on front of cpu


That's not a problem. One light(Green one) is for power and another (Red one) is for Hard Disk. Red one will blink continuously, if hard disk is being accessed.

AcerPower F1 desktop boots fine after about 10


More likely it's from overheating; if it would be from the power supply ithe shutdown would be more random.
But it could also be a malware infection - especially if it happens EXACTLY after the same amount of time . Check what processes are active just before shutdown .

When I turn the power on (not the computer off/on) the unit starts up by itself. The screen displays the message Windows cannot start, the following file is missing or corrupted....


This could be a variety of things, but a lot of CPU's will do this if you have a disk in the disk drive or even a thumb drive. Worst case is you have a failed hard drive and you could may need to reinstall windows to get it working. Good luck

Rplaced power unit now the monitor will not come up with anything on it. Orange light blinking on front of cpu.


Make sure your monitor is connected to the proper video connection- that is if you have a video card in your machine and a video connection on your motherboard. If you connected to the motherboard and you have a video card -your screen will show nothing even though you are powered up. Dont know your situation, but just checking. Ive seen others do this.

A display problem in my Acer desktop pc


techguru 2009: First thing disconnect all power. Remove all drives (hard drive, CD/DVD, Floppy). Then remove all PCI cards. Also slowly remove the Memory cards. You should only have the motherboard w/processor and the power supply connected, do not connect the monitor or mouse\keyboard. If you have a CMOS battery also remove it. Careful turn the power on, you should hear several beeps. That is letting you know that there is no memory installed. Turn power off disconnect power cord. Slowly install the memory cards, keyboard, mouse, monitor. If you have a pci video card install it now. Turn power on. you should see the bios loading then error message there is no disk or operating syste. turn power off and start connecting one device at a time so your bios can recognize it. This should let you know if you have faulty hardwareby isolating each install. If you still have problems let me know.
