Re: dell 8400 dead

Your gues is correct, to have had the amount of heat needed to burn the sockets there is little chance of repair. Replacement is your answer. Regards mistyman

Ok when i press the power button it doesn't a thing! i alredy tryt changing the memory and the fan end everything doesnt work plzzz help me....

Hi, you can download a manual from here:

Please unzip the file before you can read it.

My guess is that your power supply has burned.
You can still buy a new ATX power supply
and its not a difficult task to change it out.

It could also be the on/off switch in the cabinet.
Check the wireing for loose connections.

Dell 8400 dead

Can you tell if your hard drive is running? You can here it or feel it spinning. Are the fans running? If no, I'm 99% sure you need to replace your power supply and/or motherboard. This kind of thing usually happens after a power surge.

Either the power supply is weak. ie failing under stressing loads. or the motherboard is failing. Look at your MB closly and look for capacitors with swelling tops or ooze comping out of them (looks like brown crusting)

Dont't boot anymore since my power supply died

When the power supply failed, it took the motherboard out at the same time. Time to replace it.

Ethernet Controller


E210882 is a number found on more than one Dell System Board. Dimension 8400 and 4600 come to mind. Possibly there are more. Secondly, E210882 is not a Dell Part number (DP/N or DS/N). While Dimension 8400 is a 775 socket, Dimension 4600 is a 478 socket. So they don't fall to the same family.

In any case the network controllers used on Dell System Boards are Intel and Broadcom.

To proceed, at least provide/confirm the system model. If this is not available, give the Dell Part Number.
