Dell Optiplex 240

By rlmvbc ·
A buddy of mine gave me a optiplex 240 to fix and keep. super clean unit.
will the simple replacement of the cmos battery fix the non power on that it suffers from.
I have a outside tech that will fix it for $25; no matter the problem.
But I'd like to do this simple fix(if I can)
No lights, no noise, no drive sounds at all.
thanx for the help......

No.

"But I'd like to do this simple fix"

There isn't anything necessarily simple about diagnosing and repairing hardware problems.

Could be the button, could be the PSU, could be a bad m'board. Good luck testing any of these yourself without buying parts. $25 is dirt cheap. If you have an extra known-good Dell PSU with the appropriate wattage, give it a shot.

Um, all the power connectors are connected inside <i>now</i>, yes?
