Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
My Dell wont turn on. The button on the front of the tower will turn red for a very short time when I push it, but the computer won't come on. The monitor works fine and I've tried a different cord and tested the outlet the tower is plugged into. Someone told me to buy a new power supply, but I think it might just be the button on the front of the tower. I pulled the unit apart and carefully dusted everything and cleaned the contact point where is the button hits the switch on the inside. Is there a way I can test the button, or should I just buy a new power supply? Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thank you
Replace the fuse

Less expensive for recieving is simply the "usb stick" I would recommand a "ralink" chipset, (can be found in USROBOTICS and some less expensive brand like TOPLINK

If you look at the CPU from the back. On one side usually the left you will see a screw where the side wraps around the back. Some brands will use two screws. Remove this screw and then you can slide the side panel back toward yourself. Then you can turn the CPU exposing the open side. While your in there (make sure the unit is not plugged in) take a can of compressed air and clean your cooling fans and vents. Keeping a computer cool is important to keeping good performance up to where it should be.

Hi! For dell machines when u unplug the video cable/VGA from the tower while the system is on it will show monitor self test.If you are seeing a black box moving around the screen it means that monitor is ok.Check connection between monitor and tower.Make sure cables are securely plugged in.Check if the tower is ok. There is a possibility that your monitor is ok but the tower is not.check the power button (whats the color) if amber/orange, this means there is something wrong the the tower. If its blue or white it means its ok.Also check if you are going to hear one beep, it means system is booting up properly. If tower is ok and you are using a expansion video card then try to use internal one, normally its the vga port above the usbs.If you are going to use onboard video card make sure you enable it first in bios.If all things fail, contact your manufacturer, if the system is under warranty then they will send a tech to check the machine.hope this helps...
