Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
When i power up the computer a clicking sound i thought was coming from the hard drive, i tried removing the power from the hard drive to see if this would isolate the problem to the hard drive, but the clicking sound and a yellow light were flashing on the mother board it will not power up, what could be wrong?
Check your memory if the sound is continous beeping or your Video adapter. try to clean it and installed it again if problem occured use another memory or VGA for testing..

Fist clean your computer of dust using a fine air blower from a compressor specifically around your central processing unit making sure there is no moisture in the air line
as dust will cause a lot of static which will make a computer overheat and cause lots of problems
then test your power supply unit PSU or replace it
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive one bad lead will cause a computer to shut down
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
then uninstall some unnecessary programs
then click start?run type?cmd then type?chkdsk/f which will automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
you have to keep?a computer very clean & free of dust ?and? give it regular?maintanance
hope this helps
sounds like your computer needs a major overhaul
