    I have the E210882 MB in a dimension 3000. Recent electrical storm shut it down. Now power switch non-functional. First suspected PS. Replaced PS. Same - switch non-functional. Tested switch - OK. Shorted green to black on MB connector. Get power! Understand that the power is controlled from front panel switch through power control chip on MB??? Most likely suspect at this time. Wish I could find the schematics for the MB. Maybe a simple diode replacement vs. MB replacement. MB ~$195.00 from Dell! Maybe by-pass the power control chip? Any help is appreciated. I'm an experienced tech. doing this for a friend on an out of warranty PC. Also, purchased a new UPS for friend.

Sounds like you need a new motherboard. Try to reset the bios with the jumper (or remove the battery and unplug it) and see if that does anything, if it doesn't start looking for a new mb.

The led on the front won't light, and I have power connected, but nothing. Is there a reset somewere?


I am assuming you are trying to power up an installed motherboard, based on the category selection. You say that you have power connected. That means that you have connected the 20 (24) pin main connector and the 4 or 8 pin CPU power connector to the motherboard. Have you connected the front panels controls to the motherboard header? There are connections for the power switch, power LED, HDD LED, reset switch (optional). They must be connected in order for the motherboard to start. THe HDD and Power LED connections are polarity-based, so if you hook them upo backwards, their respective LED will not light. The HDD LED plug is usually red and white with the red being on the positive (+) terminal. The Power LED plug is usually green and white with the green wire going to the positive terminal. The power switch and reset switch wires can be connected either way as they are not polarized.

And check the front panel connections again.

You might have connected this the wrong way.

Good luck

Not power on continiously front panel led on off


Hello Asam,

Please check the connection of front panel led on the motherboard. If the connections are ok then the front panel led gets fused.

My pc is not turning on, the internal green led switches on at powering the machine. tuerning the power button the first time initiates the processor fan to run but stops instantly. nothing else happens...


Faulty motherboard or power supply. Best guess is a fault in motherboard causing excess current and it then shuts down. Try unplugging all peripherals except for graphics card, including the drives. If still nothing, try a different graphics card, different power supply. If still nothing, try a different m/board.

Motherboard won't boot: no noise, no nothing...


Shorting the two leads will work but don't keep the two wires together. They are not ment to stay connected. Consider replacing your cases ATX power switch. Take a look at the link provided for a new switch;
http://www.cables4computer.com/Cases_and_Enclosures/Mid-Tower_PC-Cases_ATX_Push_Button_Power_Switch.html

The green LED on the motherboard means the board is in "Stand by mode". This green LED uses 5V DC to light the LED. After replacing your PS back into your system it may function just fine.

Good luck.
