Why is the disk drive green light off an on no power up of computer?


If you're talking about the light blinking on the CD/DVD drive when you try to turn on your system .. that's because it's getting enough power for the disc drive to run it's onboard boot circuits. Does not mean that the rest of the system is getting the power it needs .. could very well be that your main Power Supply Unit (psu) is going out.
Note :: PSU's are one of the most frequently replaced items in desktop systems. Many new systems come under-powered and upgrades that place more demand on the power supply will stress minimal psu units.
When I replace them, if at all possible, I put in stronger ones so they do not stress and wear out as quickly.

If you're talking about the actual Power LED on the computer blinking, its most likely an error. The 8200 has a set of LEDs on the back to indicate various failure codes. You didn't mention beeping so its not a beep code, which exists as well. If any light other than the CD/DVD disc light is what you were talking about, please clarify or visit [Link shown below] :: the Dimension 8200 pdf manual link, codes in it.

Dell dimension 8200 help


A steady or Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

When I turn on the dell dimension 8200 the light on the power button does not turn green, it stays amber color blinking and the computer does not turn on, is it the power supply that is gone bad?


Check all below possibilties & see if it works.....
  1. GGGY diagnostic lights can indicate a bad motherboard, or possibly a hard drive failure.You could try opening the case, then remove and reseat all the power and data cables, cards and memory and see if the system bootsCheck for burnt/charred power connectors on the motherboard and for any capacitors with bulging tops or are leaking, the tops should be perfectly flat.
  2. Could you please check out if the you are not having a battery problem. This could be the source of all the trouble that you are having.
  3. do the fans and hard drives spin
Please rate & vote, if you like solution
Thanks

Dell 8200 Dimension shuts down on bootup. Making


The clinking sound could well be your drive heads snapping back into parking location if your power supply is going out. Since the 8200 comes with a pretty weak power supply those tend to go out shortly after you've upgraded to a better graphics card or added another drive to the system. I've replaced mine a few times and now have a 450 watt supply in it which seems to be able to handle a powered video card and the 2nd HD, 2nd dvd without running out of juice.
Another good thing for these old dimensions is the addition of a case /slot fan to help with cooling a bit more. (see included picture)
I've had dealings with a number of dimensions from this era not cooling enough and the slot fans really helped stability.5a04930.gif
Let me know if any of this helps your situation.

I want to replace CD drive on Dell Dimension 8200. My options are serial ATA, parallel ATA & ATAPI. Which one do I need?


Hello,

This computer has 2 IDE connectors. These are parallel ATA connectors.

See: Dell Dimension 8200 Specs

If you get a drive, look for IDE on the package. IDE, PATA and ATAPI are near synonomous. They use a 40 pin flat ribbon cable to connect.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Dell Dimension 8200 won't power up


If the power button does not light up at all, I would guess the power supply has a problem.
