I posted this earlier in a Corsaid forum by mistake.
I have a Dell Vostrol 200 from svereal years ago.
A few days ago it stopped turning on. There are no lights on the front, and no beep sounds. The only light I can see is an a small orange light on the mother board. I think the PSU is working because I unplugged the PSU from all parets of the motherboard etc, and connected the green and black leads and turned the power back on -- this turned on the PSU fan. I also reseated all the memory modules, and that did not make a difference. I removed and reseated the CMOS battery to no effect. Would appreciate any further suggestions on how I can figure this out. Thanks
If it's not turning on at all, two main things cause that. Bad power supply or bad motherboard. Need to swap out one at a time to test them. Power supply is usually the main one to cause this, and is the easiest to replace.
