Hi, well it is pretty straight forwards. The MB, comes, naked as it were. One removes all the screws that secure the MB to the case, usually about 6 - 7. Now note down where all the Wires go for the Switches, LED's USB connections in fact ALL external connections to the MB. etc. Note where the HDD, and DVD connections go on the MB. too.
Then Install the RAM and any plug in cards, then plug in the big Power Supply connector. Thats about all it takes.
Usually one gets a manual with the MB. This will also show all connections to everything. As they may indeed be different if the MB isn't exactly the same.
IF one used an exactly the same MB, and the existing HDD, then the system would most likely just boot up and work. If however the MB wasn't the same, then one would have to boot up in safe mode, and remove all existing drivers, and reboot, this will then allow the OS, to detect and reinstall the new drivers required for the MB, you should also have been supplied with a CD/DVD, with ALL the MB "Drivers". These too must be installed, to make the MB work correctly.

please find a pictorial tutorial about how to do what I have explained.

Where is the motherboard located on a dell dimension 3000 Desktop?


Unplugging the computer from the wall is about all you need to do to get a "cold boot". There is a battery on the motherboard you can remove for a few minutes if you need to reset the BIOS settings. That battery is about the size of a quarter coin.

The motherboard nearly fills the bottom of a desktop system, assuming it's set on the desk with the monitor on top. If you're using it as a "tower" system, the motherboard will fill one side of the box. It's big... and may have other "cards" plugged into it.

This sounds like the hard drive is failing. At this point you will need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need to be replaced.

Dell Desk top siund issue


Yes, it could be mother board or bad speaker wire. Or get another sound card and have someone install it for you and load the driver. again, If you have the driver for that old sound card, remove and install it again.If the sound card is on the mother board, go to the manufacture and download the driver.

Good luck

Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top


No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

Sorry
