Machine powers up anytime the power cord gets plugged into it, is there a solution to fix this problem?

\015 I have a dell dimension 4550, anytime i plugged the power cord into it the machines powers up, is there a solution to fix this problem?\015

Answers :

If the machine powers up the moment you connect the power cord, you most likely have a short on your motherboard. It could be as simple as too much dust gathering, or the motherboard itself isn't tightly secured to the chassis. Make sure all power connections are securely fastened to the motherboard.
