C0000218 error code.cannot boot dell 8400 to troubleshoot problem


It sounds like you've had a fatal error - you can reboot the PC back to factory setting - this is called a hard reset - but before you do that - unplug you tower and clean it out (dust & dirt) - once you're done with that - restart you computer and press &hold down the "Ctrl" and "F11" button at the same time - this will let you reset the PC to the original factory configuration.

Beeps, wont boot up


Most of the time when it beeps, and there is nothing show on the computer screen, it is a RAM problem. A stick of ram may have gone bad. If you have two sticks of ram in the computer, you can try to remove one stick at a time to see which one might have gone bad.
