The entire computer shuts down and restarts and shuts down and restarts and so on and so forth. I guess it is the power supply. I guess I'll have to splurge and get a new one. eh?
One other thing! After it turns off and on repreatedly for about 30 seconds (4 seconds on- 4 seconds off- 4 seconds on -etc), there are 2 short beeps made by the computer. Then it continues with its off-on-off-on-off-on-off-on cycling, never actually powering up fully.
I'd prefer a helpful suggestion rather than just DELL bashing. A legal proceeding against them will just make some attorney rich. It won't solve much else! It certainly won't repair my computer!
my Dimension 8300 just started doing the ON and OFF thing a week ago, today its dead, nothing, no flashing lights, no screaming fan, absolutely nothing.
So, any idea's on finding a replacement power supply(not Dell sh!£% - reason for this is that I will never buy anything from Dell again) to fit the Dell mobo and case?
