Thanks for everyone's info. I replaced my motherboard and only get the inside green light. Idk if it is the power supply or cpu. I didn't know at the time to replace the heat goo.

Welcome to the forums Tracy, it may be best if I move your post to a new thread so that we can help - I'll do this once you've seen my message :).

Can you explain the problem a little more and I'm sure we can help :D.

Hi Tracy,

Thanks for the private message, I've moved your post to a new thread now.

The sort of information that would be useful is:
  • What model motherboard/CPU/power supply do you have
  • What happens when you press the power button
If there's a green light on the motherboard, then it's getting power. Did you re-connect the power switch cable correctly to the header pins? Does anything happen at all when you try to power on?

Thanks for getting back with me. First I want to clarify that I'm trying to get 2 separate Dells to work. One is mine. One is for my friend. Now the one I changed the motherboard in is mine and yes I plugged everything back in. I had the manual plus I took pictures of it before I tore it a part. I went to Frys Electronis last night and got some of that heat sink stuff to put on the cpu. I haven't tried it yet. When I press the power button I get nothing. No lights, no fan. Only the inside green light come on.
