The big question is whether the 2400 has a PCI Express slot. It does not. The 9500GT is a PCI Express 2.0 x16 card

SOURCE: dell 2400 ram upgrade problem

RAM can be finicky so first test all memory slots with a known good stick (your 512MB). Make sure you're starting from a complete power down and you get a POST beep (hopefully your system is set up to beep when it powers on) and everything loads up all the way through to your OS.

Once you do that with all your memory slots test with the new stick by itself in all memory slots. If neither of the memory slots work with the new stick but you verify that it works in another system you should then check your BIOS settings and RAM timings to ensure compatibility with your stick. If you can't find the timing on the RAM stick itself, look up the manufacturer's part number for the information.

Good luck!

You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.

Will a NVIDIA GeForce gt 610 graphics processor work on a Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop


YES, Zian it will work....BUT,....................

1) It is a PCI graphics card, and uses a PCI expansion slot.

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2898922&CatId=319

The Dell Dimension 2400 Desktop PC's motherboard, has three long white PCI slots,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/techov.htm#1105465

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Dimension-2400-Desktop-Motherboard-System-Main-Board-F5949-K5148-G1548-/190750417467?pt=Motherboards&hash=item2c699c623b

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conventional_PCI

If one of those long white PCI slots is open, you can use a PCI graphics card.

Concerned that the graphics card uses DDR3 graphics memory, and your computer only uses DDR Sdram ram memory?

Don't be.

The graphics card has it's own processor (Graphics Processing Unit), and graphics memory.
It runs independent of the system resources; the Processor and Ram Memory.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

The concern is the Power Supply.
Original power supply's maximum rated Wattage is either 200 Watts, or 250 Watts.

The above graphics card requires a minimum system requirement/power supply requirement; of 300 Watts.

I would recommend replacing the Power Supply.
(Especially with it's age, if it is still the same one)

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1389575&CatId=1078

ONE thing though..............
Watch the 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, and the wires in it. Be sure they are in the standard place setup.

Check the pinout, and color code of the wires,

1) Dell Dimension 2400 desktop computer, 20-pin ATX main power cable connector pinout,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/techov.htm#1105612

2) STANDARD 20-pin ATX main cable connector pinout, and color code of wires; as set by JEDEC,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

[Be aware that the ATX main power cable, and connector, you get with a new power supply; such as the above, will have a 20 =4-pin ATX main power cable connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20plus4

Use the 20-pin connector, tie the 4-pin power cable up out of the way]

For a time period Dell was making the motherboard's main power cable connector - Proprietary.
Meaning they has that motherboard connector wire pinout changed.
Colors of wires were in a different place, than the standard setup by JEDEC.

Orange wires are 3.3 Volts (DC)
Red wires are 5 Volts (DC)
Yellow wires are 12 Volts (DC)
Black wires are Ground wires.

Guess what happens if a 12 Volt Yellow wire, is plugged into where a Black Ground wire is supposed to be?

ZZZZZZzzzzt! Motherboard fries, processor fries, ram memory fries, and graphics card. (If used)

Check the color code of the wires, in the 20-pin ATX main power cable's CONNECTOR, for the Dimension 2400's power supply.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

You can try to reseat the CPU (processor) chip. Inorder to do that you have to remove the heatsink and then reapply thermal paste (compound) to the surface of processor. The processor rarely goes bad.

Where is the serial number for my computer?


Use the Service Tag number, or the Express Service Code, (ESC), which is on the white Service Tag, on the back of the computer tower.

You may also have a Service Tag label on the top of the computer, or up on the side of the tower.

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/en/document?c=us&dl=false&l=en&s=gen&docid=DAD1AFE6F90145549F7AA300E6671E47&doclang=en&cs=#3

Copy and paste the above into your address bar, then press the Enter key.

By the way. The Maximum Amount of ram memory for EACH ram slot is 1GB, not 512MB, as Dell states.

TOTAL Maximum Amount of ram memory for the Dimension 2400 is 2GB.
(1GB in EACH ram slot. There are 2 ram slots)

Ram memory used is DDR at 333MHz, or also can be stated as PC2700.

The best Processor you can use is an Intel Pentium 4, 3.06GHz, with HT. (Hyperthreading Technology)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

The best graphics card is an Nvidia GeForce 6200 O.C. (Overclocked edition), that has dual monitor ports. (256MB of graphics ram)

Yes, I know the processor, and graphics card are real old news, but so is the computer.

Anything I can help with?

Would there be any 32bit PCI expansion slots on an IBM windows98?


There are PCI slots, but the processor, ram, and video capabilities are far below what modern components expect. You probably could get the wireless card to work, make sure the manufacturer has drivers for Windows 98 before you buy the card.

In my opinion you should maximize your RAM. For a Dimension 2400, Dell's manual claims the min is 128 Mb and the max is 1Gb. Not sure how you got to only 32Mb of RAM but you'll see a big improvement in performance if you increase it.

Do you have an old IBM or a Dell (the area you posed the question in)?

Want to buy more RAM..


Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)


If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::

Upgrade card


Well, these are the minimum specs for Age of Conan:

OS: Windows Vista/XP
Processor: 3GHz Pentium IV
RAM: 1GB RAM
Video Card: Shader Model 2.0 and 128MB RAM: NVIDIA GeForce 5800 or ATI 9800

These are the specs of your computer (base):

  • Intel Pentium 4 550 (3.4GHz) Processor
  • 1GB PC2-4300 DDR2 Memory
  • Two 74GB WD SerialATA Hard Drives in RAID0 Drive Array
  • 16x DVD+/-R and 48x CD-RW Burner Optical Drives
  • Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Audio
  • NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Graphics Card with 256MB
Seems to me that you are okay. Would a faster computer be better? Of course. But as you are, the game should play alright. Upgrading to an 8 series Nvidia is worth the change, though.
