SOURCE: Dell GX280 speaker problem..??
I have no idea why, but for some reason those speakers only work with the computer they came with.
We had the same speakers and decided to use them on yet another HP desktop. We can barely hear anything out of them...
My recommendation is to get a new speaker setup which has volume control separate from the keyboard. You can find a multitude of speakers at a great price here. Once the page loads use the menu to go to Computer Hardware>Speakers & Headsets.

SOURCE: dell smps ps-5141-2d pin layout
145 watt smps was shipped in very very old computers, its not manufactured any more. how ever you may still want to try for best buy. 1% chance you may get it. i searched everywhere its images are not avilable. the pin layout inside and outside is the same. as in 180 or 200 watt smps. repairing is not a good option. get it replaced if its okay with you. please tell me the system model number or service tag so i can look for alternative smps for your computer. thanks.

It makes no difference providing the computer motherboards support SATA interface.
SATA 1 and 2 drivers are in the BIOS. If all the computers have SATA 1 you can upgrade the BIOS to latest version via Dell's support website.

Testimonial: "thanks, ill look into that. how do you update the bios? (i have never had to do it before) do you burn the update to a cd/floppy and boot from it? Cheers again!"
Try jump starting it by shorting the power switch pins on the MB with a flat head screwdriver. If it starts then check the power switch on the case for loose connection. If it fails then replace the MB.
