Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
About a week ago my computer decided that it had had enough of life and when i boot it up it goes past the initial boot phase, where it gives you the option to go to boot menu or to system settings, and then 90% of the time it flashes up NIC error, then keyboard fuse failed and a variety of error messages with errors such as checkpoint math, PnP6, checkpoint poke,check point shut, and flashes the screen and bleeps with a messages saying to contact dell support, the machine is 3 years old so dell probably wont be interested in it and im running out of ideas, ive tried to wipe the hard drive and rebuild it but it still hasnt cleared it and the installation of windows xp crashed
So it seems like game over unless somebody can help me please!
Thank you very much,that fixed my problem

Yeah, I have the same exact problem, I keep getting the "Check Point [Poke]" Message. I am trying to get into the Bios settings but it is not allowing me to because by the time I get in there it crashes. Ughh... This is such a pain.

Hear what u can do u can try resetting the bios or taking out the cmos battery for like 30 to 45 mins and the error u r getting will go away but if the NIC error keep accuring well there a problem with yr network card and for the hard drive when the pc is now booting up all dell normally comes with a testing device tool to get this testing device u can press F2 on when yr pc now going throught the post and just select hard drive testing...if it fines an error with the hard drive well u need to replace it....ok let me now if that work.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
