Question about Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop
Normal 0 I have Dell dimension 8400 3.2Ghz, 3GB ram, 512mb 8600GT Nvida card. Win XP SP3, 3.5 yrs old computer. When I push the power button I have no post, on back panel I see A - Solid Green, B - Solid Orange, C- Solid Green, D - Solid Orange. System seems to run as if it is booting up normal. I opened the box, cleaned all dust manually, removed MB battery, put all parts together it booted up fine. After a while I shut down the try to reboot and it would repeat with same error code on back panel. I tried same thing with removing battery to see if it boots but this time no luck. Any help would be high appreciated. TIA Ven
GYGY diagnostic lights -- Memory is detected, but a memory configuration or compatibility error exists, and the 1-3-2 beep sound indicates the MEMORY test failed, which means one of the four memory has gone bad or the one of the four slots on the motherboard has gone bad, Neither the memory nor the mother board has completely gone bad, but either one slot or one memory has gone bad, try placing one memory on all slots and check which slot is the issue, then trying placing any 3 memory on the remainig slot to isolate the memory, then after that use the best 3 in the best 3 slots and check, you computer should work fine, this would help you for sure

According to this link you may have faulty memory:
Try pulling the memory one stick at a time if you have more than one, or try swapping some from another system.
This is a good tool for testing memory if you can get it to boot:
