Hello,

If your computer turns on and your monitor stays in stand by mode, then there is no communication between your video card and the monitor.
You could check if the cable is plugged in correctly or even faulty.

It is also possible that there is a problem with your video card. Maybe physically uninstalling and reinstalling it could solve it.

If none of this helps, then you might want to check a new video card.

Hope this helped.

My dell inspiron 2400 pc will not start up


If the power light doesn't come on at all, it could be the power supply is dead, or the power switch is defective.

Check to make sure the power cord and power supply cables are securely connected.

Here are some diagnostic tools for DELL computers.

MY DELL DIMESION 2400 WILL NOT TURN ON PUSH THE BUTTON I GET NOTHING.


hello facawthon

if there is no response as you said then the most likely cause of it could be the power supply. it is not expensive to replace and all you nee for a dimension 2400 is an ATX power supply around 400 to 500watts.
The dimentions of the power supply is standard wht you have to pay attention to is the back of the power supply. some have two connections (power in and power out) some have two connections and an on-off power switch, and there may be only one connection with or without the on-off switch. All of these are OK, but some Dell cases can take the ones with only power out connections because the back of the case does not have an opening wide enough for others.

The bes thing would be to take the exising one with you if you decide to buy one.

hope this has put you in the right direction.
please leave comment if this was helpful.

My dell dimention 9200 makes a buzzing noise and no show on monit


Sounds like its just 1 of the fans inside the case needs replacing or possibly the fan inside the power supply. These dont cost much and are easy to replace.

You May hev one of two problems, either you towers power suply is broken, or on of the system fans are not working.

Blinking amber light and wont boot up.


if the power button was blinking amber, unplug your tower, and hold the power button for 30 seconds to 1 minute, to use any excess power stored in the capassitors in the pc. this was told to me by a dell tech, it is a small issue with the 3100=E310, and 5150=E510 Dimension desktops

Video card


Hi Yosemic..

Bad news for you... your computer don't have an AGP or PCI-e slot, so a video card upgrade is possible, but no recommended cause you will have to buy a PCI VGA (very slow).

Your computer only have 3 PCI slots as you can see at this link

Better buy a new one..
