\015 The power button no longer works. Is the replacement of a power button possible? I have tried holding the power button in for a few seconds to see if it can make contact and nothing is working. I can see a green light inside the tower so there is power to the unit, I just can't get it to boot up. I have tried a different power cord and other things plugged into the power strip work fine. Thanks for any guidance you can offer.\015

Answers :

I think your power supply has blown, take it to a computer store and ask them to replace the power supply then your problems should be over but you could just ask them to transfer computer box and that should also fix your problem because most boxes have a power supply in them. a small test you can do before that is get a switch open the pc and connect it to the mother board (without soldering it) if it turns on it is the switch then you buy a box if it doesn't make sure you dont use a toggle switch if you use a small hold switch and it wont turn on get a new box.
Probably the power supply. See if you can borrow a friend's power supply (not Dell) and temporarily replace the one in your computer with the borrowed one.

However, I can actually see the correct output when it switches to ''digital'' mode - it just won't stay there.
