Does the system TURN ON atleast if YES and if you do not see any action on all the peripherals that you hae mentioned above THEN CHANCES ARE YOU HAVE CONNECTED THE HDD DATA CABLE REVERSE . Remove the connection and switch on the system and see if it works . The correct way to connect the HDD is on the DATA cable which is 40wire/80wire look for one which is RED or BLUE this should be plugged nearer to the power connector (the orientation).

I have a dell dimesion 2300. I Just bought a dell dimesion 2400 on it has windows xp on it and it came with no disk. can I install my dell 2300 windows xp operation cd on the 2400 if I ever need...

Generally, yes, if it's the same version, (e.g., "Home Edition, or "Professional", etc.Then the Operating System disk should get you going well enough to start all the necessary updates You may need to go to Dell and download the model specific driver files, updates, etc. to get everything !00%
Make sure you have the right Microsoft Product key for the installation.
Best thing you can do is back up your system and keep it somewhere separate, with all this info. There are many good free utilities for system specs., such as Belarc Advisor. It's easier to fix a broken system when you can automatically put everything right from backups, where ever possible.You are thinking ahead, instead of after a disaster!
Good luck.!

There are two reasons for this problem

1. Windows XP may be corrupted, You re-load the operating system. Preferably after formating
the HDD.

2. The processor may overheat. You clean up the cooling assembly (FAN, HEATSINK, and
(apply fresh heatsink compount on the processor)

Compaq CQ50 laptop powers on, but does not boot. Black Screen Lights on keyboard, lights on power jack port. White power light is on the power button. Fan Runs and the DVD runs but no response from DVD. No...

I'd try messing with the memory. Try booting one single stick in each of the slots.

I've noticed that this happens pretty frequently with certain hp / compaq models.

If you've already tried that you can try removing the cmos battery for 5 minutes but aside from that the motherboard has probably gone out :(

I hope it's under warranty!

Asus p5qc-se motherboard,intel q6600

what i would start with is this. check all the connection first to the motherboard. cables to hard drives cd/dvd players power connectors. once u have dun this and still wont work, trace back the steps b4 it started to do this. remove 1 component at a time continuously restarting the computer. once the u isolate the component replace
usually and a no-boot bios condition 3 things need to be present first. keyboard, mouse and monitor.
also. another thing i would try is this.. if u installed multiples of memory remove then to a single stick and see if it boots.
nothing worse than 1 stick of bad memory to crash every thing

Can no longer see my external hdrive, also on start up it freezes my pc, can see it in the usb device but no volumes or access to it...

Have you tried plugging it into another PC? If it freezes the other PC as well, it is likely that the hard drive inside the enclosure has failed.
