I have a p4 dell 8100 dimension. The power supply won't come on but if I order a power supply it will be over $100 bucks. I've found out the dell 8100 use a special type of power supply with two motherboard connectors. (16 and 24 pin)
What I want to know is before I sink $100 bucks into a new powersupply is there someway I can test the mother board using another power supply? I just want to check out the MB to see if it's fried.
The hard drive works since I hooked it up to another computer and was able to get all my info off of it.
Any help would be appreciated.
