Reinstalled Windows XP on a Dell Dimension 8400 and The local area connection is not detected. Cannot seem to find drivers through Dell support


Dell Dimension 8400 PC"s use either Broadcom Extreme Ethernet controllers OR, on SOME models of the 8400 that do NOT have ON-board Ethernet connections, SMC Networks Ethernet Drivers. I've seen MANY a Dell Dimension.

Dell dimension 8400 blinking amber light ethernet port


An Amber blinking power button indicates a low voltage problem. This can be caused by a defective power supply or a defective motherboard. Since you replaced the power supply, my guess is that the motherboard has a problem.
Just to make sure that nothing else is causing the problem, remove any PCI cards like modem, video card, sound card, etc... Remove the memory modules and disconnect cables to CD/DVD drives. Look at the USB ports to see if any are damaged.

DELL 8400 MAKES A LOUD FAN NOISE AND WONT BOOT


There are 2 basic fans in Dell tower one for the power supply and the other for the Processor. If your computer is not booting then the Processor fan is most likely to be the culprit. What could be happening is that the Processor fan is no longer turning fast enough to cool the processor, so normal the processor when it over heats there is either protection to switch off the computer automatically or the computer won't boot. The best thing is to change the fan and make sure it is working properly but checking on the cables that they won't entangle on top of the fan to impede it's movement. You can easily damage your processor if the fan is not working properly.

My 6 year old Dell Dimension 8400 quit working completely.


Depending on the symptoms, you may have different faults.

Flashing Amber power LED, normally power supply
AAGG Diag LEDs normally bad RAM
Solid Amber Power LED, bad motherboard or Expansion card connected to it.
If you need a motherboard a Precision Workstation 370 motherboard is essentially the same and is available, (8400 motherboards are scarce)
