    The charge was $85 which I think is reasonable. It breaks down roughly, $30 for parts, $30 for labor and $25 for shipping. I prefer repairing to buying used hardware because this baby has been with...

    I think that you are right on, serpaul1. When I first opened the case, it was chuck full of dust so it must have run hot. Attached is a photo of the motherboard and a close up of what I think may be...

    Thanks, garthbock. I did check the caps, at least the big ones, and they all look good. But I agree that something in the DC power on the motherboard failed even though nothing is apparent. The brick...

    Hi Berton, In the Dell case, the brick has 8 pins that mate to the connecter in the back of the case. That connector has its back pins soldered to the motherboard. The only connectors on the...
