Power supply of dell d09m not working

Buy a new one and install it. You need something that is at least as powerful as the one you are replacing. And buy a decent name brand supply, don't go cheap your entire computer depends on what power supply you choose. Visit Hardware Revolution for an excellent writeup on choosing a new power supply. Before you take the old one out unplug the machine and press in the power on button for five seconds to drain what you can. Open the case and take pictures of where all the cables from the power supply insert into the mother board and video cards (if any) and sometimes a case fan will be clipped into the power supply as well. Remove the old one after grounding yourself to the case and install the new one. Power supplys are rated in Watts, the one pictured below is 810Watts/67.5Amps. Your supply will have a sticker similar to the one pictured below. Dell use the cheapest and lowest rated supplys they can get away with. Buy something better. If you replace the supply and the computer won't boot either the old supply was good and something else was fried or when it died it took out another component like the motherboard. Check if you have a loose stick of ram, any cable or cord or a card half out of it's slot. Try to reboot again. You may see a steady or blinking amber light on the motherboard that indicates a power problem with the motherboard or power supply. Look for bulged, loose or leaking components on the motherboard. Capacitors especially. Good luck!

I lost my power cord for mine during a move and cannot find one online. Where can I get a power cord for this?

You should be able to get a cord at any "big box" store - Lowes, Best Buy, etc. Take a picture of the computer where the cord plugs in and take it with you to the store. Tell the clerk you need a power cord to fit this recepticle and show the picture. These are common cords for computers and other devices. Let us know how you fair.

I need to copy pictures from the kodak easy share disc to a power point presentation. How is this done?

if your pictures are on the pc already then open powerpoint to the correct page layout that you want, click on insert>picture>from file, or just insert>picture if using office 2007 and choose which picture that you want to insert. If you want to take the picture directly from the memory card of your camera follow the same procedure and choose the correct path to get to your camera. i.e. c:>my computer>then choose your camera> double click it to open it ,get to the correct folder with the photos in and go from there.
