The 4400 can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. It only has two memory slots so in order to achieve 1GB you would need two 512MB cards. This would mean you would have to discard whatever is in the machine now.

The manual on the Dell website says this motherboard has an AGP slot so you could buy a newer AGP video card if you wish.

Here are my thoughts...it looks like this computer came with 256MB of memory and a 1.7GHz Pentium 4 processor. If you're using it for email, office applications, and Internet then buying additional RAM will not be a bad investment. I'm skeptical that a new video card is worth the money unless you're into gaming or CAD in which case you would be better off buying a new system.

I would like you to know that I'm not paid to provide any of these suggestions. It's a strange hobby I know, but I like helping when I can. Many times this type of question will not get a response on this website because there is no "solution" and very often any attempt at helping get's a poor rating. I hope if you've found this information helpful you'll rate this positively. If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask. Thanks and good luck.

Dell Dimension 4400 - Power light glows amber when attempting to power up. I'm thinking it's the power supply. Is this something I can fix/replace myself?


Sure you can, its just 4 screws in the back-be sure to match the wattage -- also you can test the old one with A VOM meter

Dimension 4400 is very slow what is the problem. I have uninstalled windows and reinstalled and it is still very slow about booting and surfing web and performing tasks.


This computer has only 1.7ghz and 256mb ram. That is your biggest problem. On windows XP its recommended to have at least 512mb of ram, and 1gb would be even better. Ram is the best way to speed up your computer, as its very cheap and packs a punch. If you want to upgrade your processor, you may want to look at another computer, as they can be very expensive at times.

I BOUGHT CHEAP RAM, EBAY, DELL DIMENSION 8300 HUMMING


This system supports ECC and non-ECC Rambus modules. ECC and non-ECC modules can be mixed but ECC feature will be disabled. Modules must be installed in pairs. multiple modules - PC800 the max is 2 GBs
systems tool...run disc clean up...put a check mark in every box, you don' need anything there as it is all copies you have elsewhere...
then defraggment also in system tools.
If you really feel like making that ole girl hum, do a complete reinstall using the latest drivers from the dell site. If you use your service tag number it will select the better drivers for your application.

go to this page for drivers (above) select your operating system (2000-ME-XP-Vista).
hope this helps you. Please leave rating
