    I do not hear any beeps, but can feel the hard drive on. A&B lights remains green. When I tuned it on it goes off and with I turn in it comes back on again. The fan is on and power is going to everything. Change hard drive, but that was not the problem.

Okay, That helps,
What did you do to the computer *prior* to this issue?
You need to look at a few things. Remove all memory sticks except one.
Try to boot. If it does work, then you have a bad memory stick.
Add another stick and so on.
if you have a Video card in a slot, remove card and relocate to another slot (IF RAM does not fix).
Make sure CPU is fully seated as well.
Can you boot to safe mode using F8 ?
lets get the first 2 things done first tho.
Thanks for the fast reply!!!

Dell front panel power light abcd lights yellow


Does the monitor go out completely, no power? Or just lose a signal? Check ALL cables, AC and Monitor cables. Could be a Graphics adapter issue or Monitor , try another monitor.Your computer has a few miles on it , right? You could buy a PCI Graphics card if the monitor is OK.

I have a dell dimension 2400. My starts up fine


Most likely a motherboard issue.

Also ensure the CPU Heatsink is firmly attached. If the heatsink is loose, replace the plastic heatsink retainer

If it is secure, then the motherboard is the most likely failure point

Um, unless you are happy soldering VERY finely and under pressure then go for it, but to be honest, you can pick one up for £30-£50 that will have everything you need and more!

Yellow light on dell dimension 2400 and it won't work


HI, this is signaling an issue that is concerning the power unit(power supply). this can also be an issue with the mother board as well. you can confirm the actual issue by, inspecting the cooling fan that is on the power unit. if the power unit fan is not running when you push the power button to power up the PC, replace the power supply. if the fan is running, replace the mother board.

Computer hangs at the Dee Logo


Look at the description for the diagnostic lights on a Dell 2400 here under "A possible expansion card failure has occurred."

If you have recently installed any card (wireless, sound, etc.), then this would be my first suspect.
