Blinking Green LED on Dell Dim. 2350 won't let system stay on.

Can Someone Please Help? I have noticed that when the green LED on the motherboard next to the power supply cable is blinking and the DSL modem is off on my Dell 2350 desktop, the computer starts for a min.or two, and then shuts down. I try to start it and it does the same thing over and over. A couple of times it stayed on until I finally shut it down to where I was not able to keep it on again.
The other weird thing is that, whenever the green LED is not blinking, but is on...solid green, I can turn the computer on, but only, only if the modem is also on, and the ethernet cable is plugged on to the back of computer and to the modem, for as soon as I unplug the ethernet cable from the modem, or from the back of the computer, or, if I turn the moden off, the whole system will immmediately shut down, and most of the time when that happens, the LED will start blinking again. Once this happens, it will shut down again if I try to start it. It will not stay on.
I want to stop using the ethernet intergrated connection and replace it by installing a new EthrNT.card, but I was thinking, that in case that is the source of the problem, I'm afraid to install it because the new card will still not be detected, and since it shuts down as soon as I turn off the modem or unplug the ethernet cable, I'm afraid that having the new Ethernet card connected, it will act as when I had shut down the modem or when I unplug the ethernet cable, which, most of the time causes the green LED to go on to the blinking mode. So, if I installed the new card , it troubles me that the green light will be on the blinking mode and the time it stays on will not be enough for the new Eth card to be detected, which would leave me no other choice but to plug it back to the same built-in Eth connection....unless you can help me get around all this some other way? Can I install the new Eth Card while the computer is on, with the modem turned on and connected to the intergrated Ethernet, because, as I explained, the Eth cable must be connected to the turned-on modem for the computer to stay on? Would there be a conflict if two ethernet connections are being detected, at the same time? Would the new one be detected but unused until I switch to it? Can You help? Anyone? Any Suggestions; Ideas? Weird symptoms, I know. Maybe you are already familiar with this symptoms? Could it have anything to do with the (wimprvse.exe) file, which I had not seen on the Task Manager window before I started having this problema? Hope it was detailed enough for you to maybe know or have an idea as to what is going on here. Anyway, Thanks for taking time to read my long (?). M.B. El Paso, Tx. God Bless and best regards.

    First, I'ld like to say a big thanks to FixYa for their wonderful site. I barely found it and it's great. Thanks again FixYa!

    Thanks a lot Sudheer 1011 !! When I read the e-mail, I had already switched to the new Ethernet card which I dicided to install as the computer was booting up. It detected it right away and now it seems to be working fine, even though I don't know if it will continue doing the same thing after I'm done using the internet and the computer has been on for a while. I have already turned the modem off and also disconnected the ehternet cable, and it did not shut down. It kept going smoothly; nevertheless, I'm going to do what you suggested I'ld do with the ram card. I hope what you suggested along with the new Eth card I installed will take care of the problem for good. Thank so much again Sudheer and FixYa. God Bless. M.B.

sounds like you need a new motherboard. Try to reset the bios with the jumper (or remove the battery and unplug it) and see if that does anything, if it doesn't start looking for a new mb.

We need to know exactly what the problem is. check on the back of the computer. right above the ports where you plugin a PS/2 mouse there are 4 led lights there. if the last combination it will give are all green then this is a video problem. the lights on the back are actually diagnostic led lights. it would help us a lot to figure out whats wrong with the computer using the combination of those lights. however, if the capslock key doesnt respond at all when pressed that it could be the mobo.

please let me know if you have any other questions

No power and blinking green LED

It may not be that the bios needs clearing, take the left side panel off and look for the 'JBAT1' terminal on the mobo and put jumper cap from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. start the pc then set the time and date when prompted ans save settings.
