Try going into safemode and doing a system restore to the last time the unit worked.

    If that is the case than you HDD might be bad, you should ALWAYS at least be able to get to the boot loader.

Have a used dell dimension 2400, hard drive died i replaced it, but i dont have the original os disc that came with the system, can i use my copy of vista, or find another copy


If your Dell computer had Vista installed then you can use your copy of Vista CD and you can use the product installation code that is printed on the Windows label that is attached to your Dell.
When you insert the Windows CD into your Dell and boot up your computer then select the CD as the boot device (ie 4=IDE CD).

After Windows is installed and activated then you need to install the Dell computer's device drivers.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

My Dell Dimension 2400 has stopped working - how do i restore the factory settings ?


Hello,

It appears your model Dell 2400 should have been supplied with the CD's for reinstalling Windows XP, CD will be green or blue in color and the drivers and applications that came with the computer.

If so, back up your files first to an external drive and then put the CD in the CD drive and reboot the computer. It should come up to reinstall XP.

If good to go, you will be prompted to install the second Cd as well as online XP updates.
Software that was installed after you bought the computer also wouyld have to be reinstall as well as restoring your backed up file.

Rememberm all data is lost when you reinstall your operating system, unless these is a choice on install that may ask for destructive, or non-destrutive (keeps files).

I am attaching a link to Dell for your to copy and paste into your web browser for the support page for drivers and user guide in the event you need to reveiw the process.

You most likely need to reinstall windows. Insert your windows cd or dvd into your disc drive and then reboot the computer. Make sure you backup any of your important files first.

Hi,

This bad video drivers.

Restart the machine and repeatedly tap the F8 key. When you see the advanced boot menu appear choose safe mode.

You will see white text on screen that will stop on a system 32 driver, wait a minute and let it boot through.

Next, go do device manager and uninstall the display drivers.
Reboot the machine and it should boot into windows normally. You may have to reinstall the display drivers if they don't reinstall themselves.


Please post back if you need anymore help or advice.



Good luck.

We need the BSOD error for a better diagnostic but it appears that the soft for the Alcatel Speedtouch is at fault here - as usual; find the latest driver and use it.

Reboot dell 2400 whant to set to factory settings


Try hitting F5 at startup, if not then the only bet is to call Dell and tell them you need your recovery discs, they will try to sell them to you but don't fall for it, if you argue enough they will eventually send them for free.

Dell inspiron 1300 stalls at blue welcome page?


It could be a hardware failure. Bad Hard drive maybe. You will have to go to the manufacturers website to get the reinstall disk. A.K.A Recovery Disk. You will have to pay. And they will send it in the mail to you. Good luck.
