My Dell Dimension 8300 will not turn back on after a power outage. I press the power button on the computer which normally turns it on but it does not work.

  • Hi Jimhol,

    First, check the four diagnostic lights on the back for any signs of trouble. Second, try unplugging the machine and holding the power button to discharge capacitance. Then plug it back in and try starting it up.

  • Could be a power supply failure.  You will have to cut a hole in the back of the case to use a non dell power supply in that system.

    What is the colour of the power button LED, is it solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off, also check the sequence of the Diagnostic Lights on the back of the case.

    Do any of the fans run?
