SOURCE: Dimension 8400 locks up. Keyboard won't respond.

Generally and indication of a software issue that is locking the system. There can be hardware causes too.

  1. Run diags on the system (From Resource CD or F12 menu) see if any failure. If you have a hardware failure then address it and see if the problem is solved.
  2. Update bios and drivers from support.dell.com
  3. Edit MSCONFIG, startup group, remove entries that are not required (Generally only AV and printer scanner items are needed here, most other items will function without and item here)
  4. Edit the Virtual Memory settings, and set it to Custom and an amount double the RAM (EG: 4 GB RAM set initial and Mas to 8200 MB VRAM)

My 6 year old Dell Dimension 8400 quit working completely.


Depending on the symptoms, you may have different faults.
http://www.fixya.com/support/r4282412-find_no_post_diagnostic_information_dell
Flashing Amber power LED, normally power supply
AAGG Diag LEDs normally bad RAM
Solid Amber Power LED, bad motherboard or Expansion card connected to it.
If you need a motherboard a Precision Workstation 370 motherboard is essentially the same and is available, (8400 motherboards are scarce)

I messed the bios up on a Dell Dimension 8400 pc. The HD completely died, so I have no OS on the pc, so I can't just simply run the exe bios update from dell. Is there some USB utility that I can use to...


Go here if you can unmount the bios eeprom they will reprogram it for you or send you another of its type with your bios on. I have used this service a few times. Never failed me. GL

Dell 8400 No Boot, not even POST


It sounds like your bios were improperly flashed or went bad. The X300 SE message is your video card. So your video card works, the system mostly works, but the BIOS isn't starting up. You should contact Dell and tell them the situation.

Dimension 2400 is at 1.5MG - will not go to 2.0MG per manual!


yeah thats a normal issue with the dimension 2400 as the older bios only supports a max of 1gb of memory you will need to go to the dell website which ive linked below and get the bios update which will give you support up to 2gb-pc3200 ddr memory
