I have a Dell Dimension 3000 only a year old. It suddenly died, meaning no
power what so ever.
Opened up the side panel, connected the power cord, a green LED comes ups on
the motherboard. Pressing the power button on, nothing happens. No Power!
Installed a new 400W PSU. Nothing happens. Same result with green LED on
on the motherboard but no power.
One strange thing I noticed ! I removed the CMOS battery, and the system
powered up. the fan and hard drive etc. starts spinning. Tried the same
(no CMOS battery in the motherboard) with old PSU and system powers up.
Got a new CMOS battery, but same results.
Do not know where to go from here.......
any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
