Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop
I am unable to turn my computer on. There is absolutely nothing happening When I turn on the computer (by pressing in a button), the monitor will react with a green light on for 2 seconds and then the green light is off. No lights to indicate the computer of disk drive are on.
I recently had a problem turning on my XPS 200. Then I fixed it by placing my right index finger in the slot and behind the on/off button. Then used my left index finger to push the on/off button from the front. Pushing the button from the front against the finger from behind created enough pressure to turn the machine on. Sometimes I have to push the button from behind to the front and vice-versa to get the computer to turn on. It's a lot more work, but will have to do until I get a new hard drive, preferably not Dell. The hard drive is making a lot of noise and recently a CD got stuck in the CD slot and wouldn't come out until I rebooted.

Is the amber light blinking? Indicates PS not operating within specs. You can look at replacing the PS (~$79-99). GL
