Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop ?

Dell Dimension 4500 has been working fine but won't start now. No fan, no power when press power switch. Have taken front panel off, and switch seems okay. How to check power supply?


Answers :

The problem with your Dell Dimension 4500 is that its power pack (the device that supplies power to the mother board) is bad. The only solution is to replace it (Though sometimes it could be fixed, my recommendation is get a new one, the price to fix and getting a new one are about the same anyway). To do this you need technical support unless you are a technical person. The fact is it is a very simple procedure. But to be sure that nothing goes wrong or another complication doesn’t arise you need a technical person to change the power pack. However, if you a technical person and you are sure this your comfort zone, follow this procedure:-
Open up the CPU casing. Unscrew the power pack (this is the device you plug in your power cable from the back of the CPU). Take it to any computer accessories store and purchase one with the exact power specifications. Return it to your CPU, screw it back and plug in to your board and devices. 
Power on the System.
There is a power supply problem. change the power supply.

Without tools or other spare components/computers, how to troubleshoot ''dead'' Dell Dimension 4500? No beeps/fan, etc. Have taken off front cover and switch seems okay mechanically. Small green light on mobo is on, but no other lights/sounds. Have removed RAM, all drives, and all cards except graphics adapter, and still nothing, no monitor signal. If you say it is the PSU, why? How do I know it isn't the mobo or CPU? Thanks for your kind help!
