Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Dell inspiron 2400 wont connect to the internet etc.

This is a friends computer he bought from someone. Wanted me to reinstall xp. I did so. Beforehand the comp wouldnt even connect to the internet. He told me the guy used wireless. I have wireless and ethernet. Neither are working. To top it off I can't get the screen resolution to go up. It's stick on 600 by 800. I tried putting some updates on a disk and installing them that way. And it wouldnt read anything from the disk. If I could get this thing to connect to the internet I'm sure the updates would fix it.

First You need to get the chipset driver, video driver to correct resolution and network drivers. Check in hardware manager which device need a driver and install it.

Reinstalled Windows XP on an old computer (DELL Dimension 2400) and the monitor won't display above basic resolution. Downloaded and reinstalled the monitor driver and still no good. Opened up START


According to the Dell Support web site the Dell Dimension 2400 has a built in Intel 3D extreme graphics adapter, assuming you are using this and not a PCI graphics card.

Go to the Intel Download Centre and run their Intel Driver Update Utility which will automatically scan your system for updated drivers for any installed or integrated Intel devices.

If the Intel Utility identifies an updated driver for your graphics adapter then download and install that which should enable you to configure a higher resolution for your display.

My Dell Dimension 2400 has stopped working - how do i restore the factory settings ?


Hello,

It appears your model Dell 2400 should have been supplied with the CD's for reinstalling Windows XP, CD will be green or blue in color and the drivers and applications that came with the computer.

If so, back up your files first to an external drive and then put the CD in the CD drive and reboot the computer. It should come up to reinstall XP.

If good to go, you will be prompted to install the second Cd as well as online XP updates.
Software that was installed after you bought the computer also wouyld have to be reinstall as well as restoring your backed up file.

Rememberm all data is lost when you reinstall your operating system, unless these is a choice on install that may ask for destructive, or non-destrutive (keeps files).

I am attaching a link to Dell for your to copy and paste into your web browser for the support page for drivers and user guide in the event you need to reveiw the process.

Generally, yes, if it's the same version, (e.g., "Home Edition, or "Professional", etc.Then the Operating System disk should get you going well enough to start all the necessary updates You may need to go to Dell and download the model specific driver files, updates, etc. to get everything !00%
Make sure you have the right Microsoft Product key for the installation.
Best thing you can do is back up your system and keep it somewhere separate, with all this info. There are many good free utilities for system specs., such as Belarc Advisor. It's easier to fix a broken system when you can automatically put everything right from backups, where ever possible.You are thinking ahead, instead of after a disaster!
Good luck.!

You need to reinstall your sound-card drivers. You can do this two ways one use your sound-card install disk or go to the internet and look for updated drivers. I have had this same issue with XP so its not just a Vista issue.
