Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
My Dell Dimension 8200 will power off and back on during a restart sequence, but it will not power back up if turned off. When I push the power button all that I get is a flashing amber light on the power button. I have discovered that if I remove the network card from its slot the pc will immediately power up just fine. Once up, I can reseat the card and it will continue to work. I have tried replacing the network card with a new one but the result is the same as with the old one. Any thoughts on what the problem might be?
Try going to Dell's support site and see if they have an updated version of your BIOS - if so, try 'flashing' your BIOS with the update and see if that solves the problem.
