When my Dell 4600 would not start Dell told me that it was the Power Supply or Mother board. When I took it to get repaired they took the battery out and put it back in and it has worked ever since. That was 6 months ago.
I have a dell 8300 P4 that won't turn on. I have had the power supply tested and they say it fine. Now they say it could be the motherboard, is this possible? Background: Purchased dell in feb 04 came with 3.0G, 1Gb, 800fsb, socket N, windows XP. I have the service tag if need to look up all oem. Only thing I added was a capture card several months ago and it was working fine.
