Hello, the yellow light means your power supply is dead and you need to replace it. Can you tell me the Model/Series of this computer?

 


Example: Dell Dimension 2400

ok the power supply model number is XXXXX the one in the pic on ebay aint the rt one
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 3 years ago.

The Power Supply Link I gave you was for a Dell Optiplex GX280. That is the correct one. If yours has a HP in it right now, then that could be the reason why this happened. You should have a DELL inside that case.

it said dell and also i can't up plug the cords from the cd rom its like its struck or something
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 3 years ago.

The only thing you need to remove from the hard drive, dvd/cd-rom is the White Power Cable and thats it.

thats what im having problems doing!!
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 3 years ago.

It can be hard to remove those at first. You have to move it up and down and from left to right to losen it up, sometimes they can be a pain. But it will come out.

ok i got it out where can i go buy this part beside on ebay
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 3 years ago.

Sadly, since this part is old, you cant get it from dell anymore, and the newer models that are out will not work/fit into this unit. Ebay is your best bet and its cheaper.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
can u check for the model number i gave u cause the one showing on ebay looks to big this one i have is very narrow and the one showing on ebay is fat which want fit in my unit at all
Expert:  Anthony Brewster replied 3 years ago.

Sure, there are 2 different types.

 

 

1) Tower

2) Mini Tower

 


The first CPU is for the Tower, and this one below....
