Re: my dell dimension 2400 beeps morse code like and...
You have to follow the beeps very well to understand wat is the problem, each type of beep gives you sign for problem. so check if its one beep, two, or three, short or long, this makes very easy to you to define the problem.
Try to take out that parallel port if your pc works fine, this means this connector was not compitable to your board.

The codes vary depending on the manufacture. For instance if you have a Dell 2400 trying searching the web for "Dell 2400 post beeps".
Although I believe 9 beeps is commonly a CMOS error. If so, you can try clearing the CMOS. You will have to know how to get to the Computer BIOS screen to set things if you do clear/reset the configuration.
If you do not see any activity and no beeps then the memory module could either be not seated right or was damaged by static. Or you could have knocked something loose (nah that never happens ;-])
To boot and generate a beep code the motherboard needs to see the first 64k of ram. So you can be sure that the problem or part of it will be the #1 memory module. So take it out and reseat it, and then try again. If nothing then swap it's position with the other module and see if that works.
Look around the case and then reseat any connectors. You may need to pull them off and then push them back on to be sure. The heat cycles from the boards running can cause them to work loose and then they just need a bump or a brush to disconnect. On some cases you can do the same just by picking it up by the corners. The case twists and pop.
If nothing is out and it still won;t work your other option is to start swapping parts into the other case to verify they are working.
One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.
all of those are controlled by the video card-software management panel..go to dell support website, and make certain you have that latest driver set..then you should be able to enable any of those options.
