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.

Can not get computer to power back up no lights on front o rear just little light on mother board have dell 8400


Bad Power Supply, sscorbett.

Usually you have enough power to light LED lights, (Like the harddrive activity LED light for add-in cards, that you see on the motherboard), and spin fans, but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Dell Support >Dimension 8400 > Service Manual

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8400/SM/index.htm

Technical Overview > System Board Components

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8400/SM/techov.htm#wp1052739

harddrive activity light for add-in cards (SCSI LED)

The Dimension 8400 comes with an ATX style of Power Supply, that has a maximum rated Wattage of 250 Watts.
1) ALL of the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power.
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts
3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.

Your Power Supply just has enough power to light that LED light.
Weak voltage power rail.
Replace the Power Supply.

[ There are three power rails inside that SMPS.
Switched-Mode Power Supply.

1) The 3.3 Volt power rail
2) The 5 Volt power rail
3) The 12 Volt power rail ]

The ATX form factor for a Power Supply refers to the size, and shape of the case, for one.
Approximately 6 inches Wide, 5.5 inches Long, and 3-1/2 inches Tall.
The ATX power supply case in the Dimension 8400 however, is shorter in length.
It is 4 inches Long. (Depth)

Not an advertisement for the website, nor manufacturer.
Reference for the case size, and power cables needed,

http://www.cputopia.com/hp-400w-dell-dimension-8400.html

Scroll down to see the connectors of the various power cables needed.

You may have a Power Supply with these dimensions, and needed power cables, in an unused computer.
Perhaps someone has upgraded to a better computer, and has an unused computer that you can temporarily borrow the Power Supply for a test unit.

Make sure it has at least 250 Watts (Maximum rated wattage), plus,

1) 20-pin ATX main power cable. (Or a 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable)

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

[ 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20plus4 ]

2) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Plus the various power cables needed for the Harddrive, optical drive/s, and computer case fan/s, if it/they do not connect to the motherboard.

How do i replsce the sound card on dell dimension


The sound card is on the mother board, but you can buy a PCI sound card and install it in one of the empty whit slots on the mother board.
I am not sure but you may need to dissable the onboard sound before you install the add in replacement sound card.
You can ask dell support if you need to do this, www.support.dell@dell.com
Good luck. I hope this helps. Have a good day.

Dell 8400 No Boot, not even POST


It sounds like your bios were improperly flashed or went bad. The X300 SE message is your video card. So your video card works, the system mostly works, but the BIOS isn't starting up. You should contact Dell and tell them the situation.

Dell Dimension 8300 wouldn't start


Sounds like a power supply. You are getting the standby voltage and not the switched. plug all your wires in except the big 20 or 24 pin motherboard connector, take a small wire and short the green (PSU_ON) to black (ground) wires. This will simulate the computers "ON" signal. The fans should all spin up and your plugged in accessories should work, which means bad motherboard, if not bad power supply.

Dell Dimension power problem


There are several different solutions for this as posted at this Forum.

http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/51352-2-dell-dimension-8400-wont-boot

1) A lot of people have just removed the Jumper for the CMOS and turned the Power back on and back off and replaced the jumper and/or removed the battery.

2) Several people have reseated the Memory and after booting back up it worked.

3) A few had to replace the Mother Board and CPU but in this instance they had to also replace the Case because the Dell case wasn't really fit for the heat of from the CPU.

4) I had the exact same problem and luckily replacing the Power Supply fixed this for me. I had to cut out the back of the Dell case for the toggle on/off switch but when I tested the old Power Supply it was only getting 5amps and this was causing the Amber/Orange/Yellow light to constantly flash.

I hope this helps!
