It's a bad cpu if the fan's not running.if it is runing it's a bad graphics card, it's a common dell issue. you need new hardware. i suggest getting a used peice of hardware, it's cheep and effective for when the slot goes out eventually. save up for a new computer unfortunately. unplug your computer from the wall during storrms and get a surge protector incase of brownouts. your computer should have a happy life.

I get 1 beeb followed by 3 beebs followed by 2 beebs then nothng happens dell diemension 8400


Your computer might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the monitor cannot display errors or problems. This series of beeps, called a beep code, identifies a problem. One possible beep code (code 1-3) consists of one beep, a burst of three beeps. This beep code tells you that the computer encountered a memory problem
you need to reseat your memmry modules just remove them and place them back in the same or a diffrant slot this cold be loose connection by connecting them again you fix it

Monitor blinks on and off.


Try this, open your computer case and look at the monitor connector thing. Is it plugged in correctly? If not, plug it in. If it is, buy a new monitor connector, they are somewhat cheap. You can install it by yourself, all you need is a screwdriver.
