That's a bummer.  emoticon.Crying.title

You could try buying a replacement Dimension from DellUK and browse eBayUK.

Personally, I would consider buying a new system, instead of replacing the motherboard of an obsolete 9200.

Re: Dimension 9200 mo-bo / PSU issue?

I wouldn't want to buy an entire new system given that all the components are good, just the mobo is somewhat damaged...

It occured to me I could pull the caps off, leaving their legs and solder replacements to the legs, if I can get decent replacements that is..

That or find a replacement 9200 mobo or compatible motherboard (so i could reuse all the components). Shame the windows CD only works with a dell mobo.

Re: Dimension 9200 mo-bo / PSU issue?

There are some companies that replace capacitors on motherboards.

I don't know them, or their quality or charges so do your homework.

There's a whole forum devoted to the topic, if you want some DIY support.

I'm not certain if it makes a difference, but the OP resides in the UK.

Bev- 

I posted those names as examples of companies that replace capacitors. Dunno if either will deal with ex-US customers or how the logisitcs would be handled. I'm sure there are similar companies in the UK and elsewhere around the globe. OP can google the net just like I did...

Re: Dimension 9200 mo-bo / PSU issue?

Thanks, it didn't even occur to me to pay for the repairs, but its probably a safer bet than doing it myself, thanks for the forum link also.
