Question about Dell Dimension 4500S PC Desktop
Have went through alot of the steps but nothing also freezes when the blue screen comes up Stop: 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0xF84c6F3E,0xF80B1778,0x00000000).
According to the issue you've got, the following tips may be available to you.1.An efficiency troubleshooting step on hardware is to start your computer with the minimum hardware necessary to run the operating system. If your computer starts successfully it proves that one of the removed hardware devices was the cause of the STOP message. Otherwise move to the next solution.
2.Boot your computer in Safe Mode by pressing F8 at startup. Then go to My Computer and right-click on Disk C to select Properties from the dropdown menu. From the Tools tab, perform an error check and disk cleaning. 3.If the about two solutions doesn't work, the last one I can suggest to you is to create a bootable disk. It is the most quick and effective way for you to solve the problem. You just need to download a software can burn your CD/usb into a bootable one and then boot your computer from it. Run the software to fix the issue after that. There are few free software for you to use, so if you want to take this solution money is indispensable. Windows Boot Genius owns a better cost/performance among other kinds of software I've used. It may be a good choice for you if you have money to pay.
By the way,reinstall your operating system can also help you out if nothing important stores in it.

this may not be your ethernet card that is causing the fault, it is probably a flat cmos battery (CR2032) disc shaped battery normally close to the memory slots. This will need to be replaced, it's a simple job, just remove side panel of tower and flip the battery out and replace, probably cost $3.00. You will then be prompted on the next boot up to press f2 to set the date and time and then save and exit again for a reboot

Any leaking brown stuff means blown capacitors- DELL (along with other manufacturers) were sold some "fake" capacitors and they didn't have all the correct ingredients to perform like they should. After about 2-3 years of use they started to break. DELL was replacing them mobos for awhile, even after the warranty ran out, but that deal is probably over. I know because I was able to replace several of them - out of warranty.
As far as your hard drive goes, Do you have an IBM Deskstar, also a.k.a as DeathStar? If it says it can't find the hard drive and you did not change the cables or mess with the jumpers and you have checked that the cables did not come loose from the motherboard and drive, then you most likely have a dead drive. You can always try to recover from the recovery console using CHKDSK. I have recovered a few drives this way. If you do recover then get your files off immediately.

sounds like your floppy drive is failing, you could get it replaced or simply turn it off via the BIOS.
to turn it off simply hit the F2 key. On the first screen usually it will list your Hard Drives, CD ROMs', and the Floppy. scroll down to the floppy and hit enter ot the corresponding key form the bios's legend at the bottom or right hand side of the screen untill you see disable.
Next you can navigate to Save & exit or hit F10 to do the same. G/L.

it is hard drive or HDD is damaged or corrupted, i will advice you to buy and upgrade to a new
one and then install back the OS, I mean that you need to install back the operating system. Firstly
open up the system and remove the old and damaged HDD "hard drive" then put the new
one in after you might have purchased, you can get a new HDD from just about any computer stores. After you have put in the new HDD, then reboot your system and put the opearating system CD into the CD drive to start the installation of the OS, follow the instructions carefully. But make sure you get the correct component for the CPU.
If this is difficult for you to do, kindly get a computer engineer or technician to help you out. Thanks

Got to BIOS by pressing F2,check or any floppy setting and disable it even in boot order setup.This will solve your problem otherwise replace the lithium CMOS battery.
As you have reset the BIOS setting to it's default setting.Floppy drive is enable by default whether your system have a physical floppy drive or not.
