What fuse is the one for the cigarette lighter/power supply?

The fuses in the engine compartment are not the ones that run the internal electrical circuits. IF you go to autozone website you can make a free account and then put in the year, make and model and then look for the free repair guides.

What pins are the switch to turn on power supply continuously

Pins 16 and 17 for a 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, and Pins 14 and 15 for a 20-pin ATX main power cable connector.

1) 24-pin ATX main power cable and it's respective connector,

2) 20-pin ATX main power cable and it's respective connector,

Just remember; The Green wire is the Soft Power On wire, (PS_ON)

ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.

A jumper wire is used briefly to touch the green wire to ANY black wire.

The preferred jumper wire is a paper clip because of it's size. (Diameter)

The jumper wire goes down into the BACK of the connector, RIGHT NEXT TO THE EXISTING WIRE that is already in there.

The BACK of the connector is where the wires go in. (In the links above look at the photo to the far right)

The 24-pin, or 20-pin ATX main power cable, is plugged into the motherboard.
The Power Supply is plugged into power.

The jumper wire goes down into the socket hole, right next to the existing wire, and far down in the socket hole.
It has to touch a metal terminal that is in the FRONT of the connector.
Each wire going into that connector has a metal terminal at the end of it.

Black plastic electrical tape is wound around the middle of the U shaped paper clip.

Use the jumper wire and the Power Supply comes on?
You have a bad Power On switch.

Power Supply does Not come on?
You have a bad Power Supply

can you check the power supply conector for power
you have to shunt the green wire to a black wire to force the supply on
then use a volt meter to check red wire for +5 or +121 volts

if the power supply is getting getting power from the outlet but not into the pc replace with a new one best of luck bye bye

Projector and fan and light goes on and then the light goes out. I am being told the ballast is outby the people I bought the new bulb from

does it chirp and flash before it goes out? if so, the problem is the zero volt ground reference level. you need a jumper wire from the power supply to the main board. if you are handy with a soldering iron, here:

A PS-5022-2DF Power Supply

When a power supply goes bad they are generally not worth repairing given the low replacement costs these days.
I have bought a lot of replacement Dell power supplies from this place over the years.
Remember a lot of Dell power supplies and motherboards are proprietary so you cannot use generic parts.

Dear, friend

When connecting IDE devices in your computer, there are a few rules you need to know about.
First, Master and Slave devices are different for the 80-wire cables and the 40-wire cables.
Inside your computer, you generally have two (2) IDE hard drive controller connections. They look this this 99% of the time:

ADSL modem hangs when booting!!!

It doesn't really sound more than it may be a bad phone line, I mean the actual wire. When you move it your connection changes. There isn't enough signal really to interfere with the motherboard on a EFI level.
