Do you hear any beeping sound upon booting up the computer? do you hear any HD activity happening? or is the unit totally just halts to that?

I checked the specifications of your board and it seems ok (socket 478, DDR400)

Based from the symptoms you mentioned, I could easily assume that you have a problem with the board or the CPU but just to be sure, I suggest that you proceed on isloating the problem.

To do this, I suggest that you remove the HD, CD/DVD, floppy connections and any adapters cards (if any) that you have installed on the board (sound, lan etc.), as for the video, I believe your board has a built in video but having, you can use that instead. From there you check the major components:

Power: check Power supply fan, CPU fan, lights - since you getting lights already and I guess your fans are all ok, we could skip this part.

make sure that the CPU (+heatsink andfan) and memories are properly seated.

try swapping a known working ram module, if you have multiple ram modules, try using one module at a time, or you can remove all of them, anyway if its a memory problem, your PC should send out error beep codes to tell you about it. however, if nothing still happens, it means that your PC isn't processing anything, you'll have to isolate if its the board that you just bought or your CPU that is causing the problem, try reseting the board's BIOS through the reset jumper to make sure that it reverts back to factory on which are commoly set to automatically detect CPU voltage and ram speed, also you can try swapping another CPU or board if possible. You might end up replacing the new board or have it tested from where you bought it (you can perhaps bring the CPU and memory with you for the later part). Hope this helps

Cheers and best regards,

If your power led stays amber, according to dimension 1100 service manual you have a component failure. Try disconnecting all your drives and turn on again. Good Luck.

Where can i find the drivers for my motherboard dell e210882 rev, A00 LGA 775

Oh fun fun! When you start the board, enter the BIOS and see what model it is from. Usually on the big DELL screen (post) it will say "dimension" and etc at the bottom. jot that down and search for drivers. If all else fails, Enter the bios and look for the service tag. jot that tag down, then visit dell website, and search for that service tag. that should get you where you want to be.

Ethernet Controller


E210882 is a number found on more than one Dell System Board. Dimension 8400 and 4600 come to mind. Possibly there are more. Secondly, E210882 is not a Dell Part number (DP/N or DS/N). While Dimension 8400 is a 775 socket, Dimension 4600 is a 478 socket. So they don't fall to the same family.

In any case the network controllers used on Dell System Boards are Intel and Broadcom.

To proceed, at least provide/confirm the system model. If this is not available, give the Dell Part Number.

Faulty modem

Yes. If it is built into the motherboard you will want to disable the intergrated modem when the when one is installed.

Fryed Motherboard

Well if its still under warranty, contact dell if not you could google it and there is probably several places to buy you only need to match the motherboard with your chipset and speed. Check ebay they might have some too.
