Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Dell Dimension 2400 Freezes frequently

My computer freezes after booting very frequently.  Sometimes it will go an hour before doing so, last night though it locked up 3 times in 20 minutes.  By freezing, I mean everything stops working, the screen freezes where it was, the mouse won't move.  The only way to shut down is to hold the power button down until it shuts off.  I thought I may have a virus but norton, avg, and ca wouldn't find any.  I formatted the hard drive and reinstalled windows and still have the same problems.  This can be very frustrating when writing a paper and losing everything.  Please help.  Thanks.

    Thanks for the help.  That didn't work so I decided I would sell the computer.  Once I removed the wireless network card, it stopped freezing up, hasn't done it since with a fair amount of use.  I'll just have to use it with a wired connection.

Check inside the case of the computer to make sure that the interface cable between the hard drive and the motherboard are fully connected. Also check to see if the RAM modules are fully inserted into their slots. If not, they try removing them one by one, until the computer starts up faster. If this doesn't fix it, then try a new hard drive, and interface cable.

To fix this problem I would suggest that you do a system recovery or reload the OS used on the computer.
You may need to purchase the windows installation CD or contact dell to find out their recovery procedures.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 series that is very slow & freezes.


It sounds like you might have spyware on you computer. The two iexplore files might be spyware. I am not sure about the teatime.exe file but there is a file called teatimer.exe which is associated with the SpyBot software. I usually recommend Webroot Spysweeper software to remove and keep the spyware off of computers.
If you have software such as SpyBot I would disconnect the computer from the internet (after you update the software to the most current definitions) and boot the computer to safe mode. Log in as an administrator and run your software. This should pick up spyware before it has a chance to load.

Dell Dimension freezes at startup


Try disconnecting the data cable from the hard drive, then see if you can boot to the Resource CD. If you can, there is a good possibility the Hard Drive is bad.

If no difference, then try disconnecting everything but video, see if the system will boot past the Splash screen. SOmetimes periferal items cause issues
