I just recieved, for free, a Dell Dimension 4500. I was told it wouldn't start up so I assumed it was a problem with Windows XP. Turns out when I plug it in and hit the power button the comp does nothing. I opened up the tower and there is a hum in the power box (correct term?) and a green light on what I believe is the mother board. What could be causing this? I searched the forums but came up with nothing, although I'm sure I'm not the first to have this problem. Is it a cruddy power switch? If so, how do I pull off the front face plate without messing anyhting up?
I'm not sure what other info you need from me. Please help, I'd love to get a working PC on the cheap so I don't need to use my notebook for everything.
confused in MN.
