Dell Dimension 2400 Not Showing Up

Hi.....An associate of mine seems to have messed up her computer. Liquid was spilled onto the mouse which is a USB one and since then the Dell Dimension 2400 hasnt been able to startup properly. The power comes on and the light shows by the power button but you cannot see anything on the monitor at all. I tested the computer on another monitor and it was the same problem - no display.

What do you think caused this and does it make sense trying to get fix it or just getting a new computer one time?

Re: Dell Dimension 2400 Not Showing Up

If you didnt do so, change the mouse and try it. If it still dont work, It sounds like she shorted the usb (mouse) port and took out the MB also.
By the time and expense of getting a new MB. you can find a new comparable computer for about $400.00 dollars.

I have an old dell dimension 2400 and I am trying to install an nvidia geforce fx 5500 pci card and I keep getting a blue screen when windows gets to the desktop.

If the blue screen appears only if the video card is plugged in that only means it's not compatible with your computer. If you want to know what video cards you can use for that computer try to go to this link.

Good luck !

Can i put a ati radeon 9550 graphics card in a dell dimension 2400

You can put any graphics card in any machine you just need to install the proper driver
Use to be a jumper on the mother that disabled the onboard video but today I think the soft hardware saves use the trouble.
You can run 2 monitors at one time using the 2 video graphics... card and the one on board just set you display properties

Need a graphics card in Dell dimensions 5000 to play fall out 3

It's a common problem with people wanting to customize Dell Dimension PCs. They are a great basic PC but weren't designed to be completely tricked out. The layout for the power supply is a bit different in most of their cases and to upgrade the power supply you usually have to physically alter the case =\ There are afew video cards that have a lower draw, but I'm not sure if they are going to be that great of an upgrade.

Palit Geforce 8800gt 1Gig Glitches + BSOD

Nvidia's recommendations for the 8800GT are 26 Amps (I think) on the 12V rail... Although you would think 20 Amps would be enough, my next step would be to uninstall the video card driver again, get yourself a copy of a program called Driver Cleaner dot net, run the program in safe mode to completely remove all of the Nvidia driver, then reboot into Windows, download the latest WHQL driver for your card from nvidia's website, and see if that fixes it. If not, either try the card in a system with a more powerful power supply, or get a more powerful power supply, and see if your error goes away.

Installing GeForce 5200 on Dell Dimension 2400

I suggest that better check that graphic card in another machine and make sure it is working.

Also find out the data transfer speed of your mother board through the AGP slot is compatible with your graphic card. (e.g. 4X, 8X, etc.)

If you are sure that your system really has an 8X AGP port (A choclate colored slot) then you could deffinitely install the card and work with it.

With the information I received the Dell Dimension 2400 deos not features an AGP 8X port, in that case it is not possible to install the card.

Then you should buy a new motherboard with AGP 8X Port to be able to install the Ge force FX 5200.
