Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START


According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

On dell dimension 2400 desktop Primary Drive 0 not found. When I hit F12 it does nothing. I can't get to the Diagnostics page.


More than likely your hard drive has crashed. You'll need to replace it and reinstall the operating system.

If you'd like to try and mount the drive to recover files, I'd recommend downloading and burning ubuntu onto a cdr and launching the live version (advice for advance user)

If you'd like a Pro opinion I'd recommend finding a local repair shop that does FREE diagnostics.

Hope this info helps!

Dell Dimensions 2400 Primary Drive 0 Not Found


For this problem it only means that the Hard Disk of the computer is not being detected

Try doing the ff:
  • reseat the IDE or SATA cable of the Hard Disk
  • Clean the port where the cable is connected (make sure that the computer is unplug)
  • reboot the computer
  • if problem persist contact computer manufacturer
Hope this will help
Thanks

Before I start my dell dimension 2400 computer up, I have to disconnect my usb mouse and usb keyboard because if I don't I will get these 2 errors, Primary drive 1 not found and Secondary drive 1 not...


The resolution for this is to go into the BIOS with the help of F2. Then look for the option USB Legacy devices. If it is enabled disable it or vice-a-versa. Also look for Boot from USB devices. Please disable that option. And select the first boot device to be the HDD (Internal hard drive)

Try this: right click on the desktop (wall paper picture) and select "Properties" (up to XP) or "Graphics Options" (Vista). You should be able to select you TV as a second display. The TV option may only show if it is connected.

Dell dimension 2400 diskette drive 0 seek failure


Check your BIOS setting to see if it detects the hard drive (Primary disk 0). If it can't detect the hard drive then the hard drive maybe faulty. Open the case unpluge the IDE cable from the hard drive and reconnect it again, also unplug the IDE cable at the motherboard and reconnect it again including the power connector on the hard drive.
There maybe an option to test the hard drive in the BIOS, if so use it to test the hard drive.
If the hard drive is faulty, you need to replace it and install Windows, the various device drivers and your programs to get a functioning computer again.
You might consider buying a new computer (it will be faster & better than the old Dell) and you have your new monitor to go with it.
