The fault could be with the power supply or some motherboard component. Check for the DIAG lights labled ABCD or 1234 on the back of the tower. The staus of the lights will help more on finding the cause. Try disconencting the memory, any addon cards like video cards and modem cards and CD and hard drive cables and see if the lights change. 5 Sensible Ipad Accessories For Business And Workplace Use AmanStino

It can be one of 2 things:
1. if the battery charge light is all that comes on then you motherborad is busted.
2. if the power light turns on without the screen showing anything then you will need to replace the screen, but first connect it to an ordinary PC monitory and see if it works from there before changing anything.

I've had a look at the Dell website, at

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/SYSTEMS/dim2400/en/sm_en/advtshoo.htm

Which basically tells you to do what you've already done.

All I can suggest is you check again, but both ends of the ide connections to mother board and HDD / Disk drives.

If its dusty in there, I'd remove clean and reseat the ram and any PCI cards as well.

hi there;

really,lightning has a great power voltages supply,thousand of volts was supplied in one strikes of lightning.this depend how much voltage was induces on your computer,mostly your avr and psu might be damage by checking if there is power determining the fans inside avr and psu if running maybe you have the power,and some led light are blinking ,some how to be sure you can use multi tester if you have knowledge on this.basic approach if you have black out screen and good power supply,pull out ide cable of hardisk and cd room from mother board,you can run pc w/o them to check your start windows if will open run your pc if still black screen,take another video card and memory card try to replace them and rn your pc,if windows open fine if not maybe you have damage the mother board from lightning.replacing defective devices can put back your windows open.best regards

Computer hangs at the Dee Logo


Look at the description for the diagnostic lights on a Dell 2400 here under "A possible expansion card failure has occurred."

If you have recently installed any card (wireless, sound, etc.), then this would be my first suspect.

Lightning


Hi,

In a nutshell, yes and not only to a Dell but to most computer brands/models. In some instances, it's only the modem, router, LAN card that gets fried while some gets everything toasted.

Incidentally, even a near lightning strike is enough to cause big problems.

Kind regards.
