Dell Dimension boot problem

I have a Dell Dim8200 running Windows 2000. I went to boot up the machine after it had been idle for some weeks and the machine boots but the video image flickers and has vertical & horizontal bands and eventually after the Win2k progress bar get across to the end a blue screen appears. Due to the detiorated video image I canot read the error code. If I boot pressing F8, F8 the sys boots in safemode and I can access programs, control panel etc, but again I cannot determine anything due to image problem. There has been no hardware or software changes in the recent past and the system is not connected to the internet, the system may have been in sleep mode for a couple of week before the attempted reboot.

I'd appreciate and assistance

You could try uninstalling the Display Adapter driver from Device Manager while in Safe mode then see if you can reboot normally. The drivers may reinstall automatically and it might blue screen again. If prompted to install drivers when restarting you could cancel and attempt to find better drivers, but it may be a failing video adapter.

Dell Dimension 3000 Video problem


There may be a problem with your windows installation. Search Google for Hirens boot CD, it is a free download and should contain a live XP installation. When you turn on the computer tap the appropriate button to reach the boot menu, then insert the CD and select your CD drive. Once booted it should display a live XP.
Alternatively you may have your monitor set to an incompatible resolution. If tapping F8 won't display the advanced boot menu then try finding an auto setup on your monitor or change the resolution using the monitors controls. If the advanced boot menu does display then select low resolution mode.
Hope this helps,

Windows can't install because it says it can't find a hard drive. Setup indicated both HD's are there and working. Installing Windows 2000 from Disc. Changed boot sequence so Rom boots first. Windows loads...


Check for sata drivers, if it is system is shipped with SATA hdd, need to install SATA Raid drivers during reinstallation .I believe that the dell system was originally shipped with Windows XP or Vista Operating system which has SATA drivers for SATA hdd. Since windows 2000 Operating system does not have SATA drivers hence unable to recognised hdd.

Have maxtor 40gb hd want to add 2nd WD hd in DEll dim8200


(if both drives on the same cable):
Your boot drive goes at the end of the primary data cable.
Your second drive goes on the middle connection of the same cable.
The red stripe on the data cable needs to be closest to the power connection (red stripe to pin 1).
The jumper on the boot drive set to master.
The jumper on the second drive set to slave.
Look in the BIOS to make sure it sees both harddrives.
Boot the system.. it will need to be partitioned and formatted if not already..
Regards..

No boot device available


Make sure all the connections to the Hard Drive are tight and secure. Then see if it will boot. If not then try loading a windows cd and see if it detects the Hard drive. If it does not the hard drive is no good if it does try running the automated system recovery you may have a corrupt MBR file.
