    Is it a sound card? or is it the sound on the Motherboard? If you have a sound card, which one is it? What operating system are you using?

You can make sure that it is not the pci slot that is bad by removing the sound card and swapping it into another pci slot on the motherboard(if one is available). If you do not find a card installed then the on-board audio could be bad. New sound cards are fairly cheap unless you get something that does surround sound and sampling like an audigy card. Also check rca jacks are working and properly inserted and verify that your speakers are working properly. Go into the device manager in the control panel and make sure the audio device is working properly. if it shows the device has a problem try selecting re-install or roll back driver option. An update may havee been installed by windows or dell that caused this issue.

Will this graphics card work with my Dell Dimension 2400? http://www.amazon.com/nVIDIA-GeFORCE-FX5500-256MB-Graphics/dp/B0042A9M5S/ref=pd_cp_e_3


Yes, that should work fine. That card uses the PCI interface, which there are 3 slots for on the Dell Dimension 2400.

I have a dell dimension 2400 it has no video i tried to put a pci video card in and still did not work but pci video card is good


You probably need a driver for the video card. There should be a driver CD included in the box with the video card. Be sure to read the instructions on how to install the card.

It's a PCI card and i looked up the Dell Dimension 2400's documentation online and it says you have pci slots, so it should work ...

I recommend that card, I use it and never had an issue with it...

also the price isn't too bad at all either

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.

all of those are controlled by the video card-software management panel..go to dell support website, and make certain you have that latest driver set..then you should be able to enable any of those options.
