Re-Check your power connectors to the main board. mainly the 24-pin EATXPWR conncetor is seated right. Looking at the CPU & to its left there is a 4-pin ATA12v connector which must be connected. Bottom line recheck all internal power connectors.
Lastly there is a red slide switch on the back of PSU, make sure it is set to 115V.
Chances are something is loose. The motherboard manual for your board is a big help.

8400 dell hold power switch to get started

If it still acts up, compare wiring of the large motherboard Molex connector to the original. Dell used a variant that does not interchange. The enable wire is in a different location from standard ATX location.

If the processor is an AMD, remove cbattery and clear BIOS, and then try again.

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

Technical Overview > System Board Components

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,

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)

[ 20 + 4-pin ATX main power cable, ]

2) 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable

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.

ABC diagnostic lights are green and D is yellow. Ram only works if slot 1 is used. If slot 1 and 3 are used Bios appears on the monitor with a flashing cursor. Dell dimension 8400

A,B,C green and D yellow is indicative of a component that the system cannot read a device it feels necessary to boot the machine such as a hard drive, floppy or cd/dvd drive. Power down the system, remove the power cord from the back, push the power button in for 10 seconds to bleed off the power. Remove and reseat all cables connecting the system devices. Remove all ram except for one stick and reboot. If you get boot, then try replacing the ram one stick at a time. If you still cannot boot though, try removing the cables from the devices and then plug in one a time until you get the machine to boot. If there is still a problem, the hard drive or its controller maybe the culprit.

My dell dimension 8400 has no volume I tried new speakers and the volume is not muted how do i get it to work

Click on the speaker icon in the lower right side of the screen, and set the volume control to high. If no help, do you have amplified speakers? Line or headphone outputs are too low to drive speakers directly.

Want to upgrade power supply on Dell Dimension 4700. Bought Rocket Fish RF-550wps 550 watt powersupply to install . Unable to proceede no schematics ror placing wireing

Hi there.
Rocket Fish RF-550wps PSU is standard ATX power supply.
Dell tend to use their own power supplies which differ slightly from standard power supplies.
I suggest you take or send the Rocket Fish RF-550wps PSU back as it won't fit and order one from Dell themselves, at least then you will have a guaranteed fit.
Once you have your new power supply from Dell (or a Dell ATX power supply) it should be easy to fit in.
Post back if you need any more help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Can Dell Dimension 8400 intel celeron work with 3 gig ram

Yes it can but try to match up at least two, to gain the advantage of dual channel and when you buy your extra ram, check that it matches the other two that you have in size, speed and technology (like 3x1G DDR2 same speed). Also you may have to play with which slot to put the third one but I had this one run with three modules before yes.

Otherwise your Dell Dimension 8400 can see upto a maximum of 4.0 GB memory, with maximum of 1GB per slot in 4 (2 banks of 2) memory slots.
