Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop ?

Its now solid amber on the power button. No Diagnostic lights lit. I hear the fan moving from the powersupply. The motherboard is green.


Answers :

Hi there,\012

First of all tell us - is there any beep sound comes from the CPU?
most likely there is some problem in RAM, just remove the RAM from the CPU and reinsert them after cleaning by a soft cotton cloth. 
you can also reset the BIOS by removing the small battery located on the mainboard (mother board) of the CPU.
post further comments for more help or information .......

Good Luck!!

Thanks
Yes its confirm that the problem is with the power supply.there is a short track on a power supply board.the fans will work until the 4 pin is not plugged.But as soon as the 4 pin gets plugged.the faulty part senses it and short tracks the circuit and does not allow the supply to pass power to prevent any further damage.\015\012In the present scenario.--please do not try plugging in the 4 pin again and again as it may cause damage to motherboard.you urgently require a power supply replacement to fix the issue.\015\012
\015\012This will help. Thanks please keep\015\012updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

I recently moved my computer into my new condo and have not been able to use it since. The problem seems to be with the monitor. I turn on the computer and the fan comes on but the monitor displays "no signal" and then goes dark but the light one the front still flashes indicating it is getting power. The last time I moved my computer from one room to another, the monitor suddenly couldn't/wouldn't display colors accruately - no red. Attempt to adjust the color by using the monitor's controls we

My HP Pavilion dv9700 was over heating and would shut off. Then it wasn't over heating and would shut off. Now it won't turn on at all. The power cord is working and the lights go on for a second while I am pushing the button to turn it on, but the computer won't turn on. HP told me the problem was the motherboard.
