SOURCE: Dell Dimension 3000 keyboard error

Hi Sir Another fix you could try is looking in your device manager and checking what keyboard device is registered if it says that you are using a ps2 then you need to uninstall the device and then close the device manger after which you should unplug your key board and restart your computer when you hear the bleep reconnect the keyboard into your USB port and see if this works if not you need to check if you have enough power to your keyboard from your USB port as some USB keyboards need power is your USB port 2.0 if not try to upgrade your USB to 2.0 from the usual 1.1 ports Hope this helps Paddy

SOURCE: dell dimension 8400 fan runs at high speed upon power on

Check if the capasitors on the motherboard are "swollen" which would mean the motheroard is KAPUT. Check if there is a modem in the PCI slots which often shorts the motherboard (when it has become faulty) ... remove the modem. Try booting again. If not succesfull make sure the POWER SUPPLY workls correctly by replacing it with another working one..... If no joy... there are still one or two other options. Let me know If you still have a problem and I will give you more options to check on

SOURCE: dell dimension 8400 fan runs at high speed upon

Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem they have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)

Be careful about how much you put on

Here are
some basic instructions


Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

Dell 8400 Boots to Black Error Screen in XP States to reinstall System 32


This might be caused by hard-drive failure. You should run hard drive test from BIOS to make sure hard drive is ok. You can access BIOS by pressing F2 during start up, from there start hard disk self test and wait for it to complete.

If hard drive is ok after test, insert in your original Windows installation media and reinstall OS.

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)

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 that I just installed a new sata hard drive on. I've tried many times but I can't get 'windows XP' installed. It's a brand new hard drive and I formatted it when I tried to...


Is i giving any errors when you try to install? You may need to download the Sata controller Drivers from Dell and when prompted choose the F6 option and install them then.

Hope this helps,
