Go to the Dell website. Under Support, at the upper right corner, type in 'Dim 2400 1-1-2 beep codes. The first thing that comes up is 'Advanced Troubleshooting Dell Dimension 2400 Series". Half way down the next page under 'Beep Codes' you'll find Code 1-1-2, the cause of which is 'Microprocessor register failure.' This probably means you'll have to take your 'puter into the shop to get it repaired.

Will a NVIDIA GeForce gt 610 graphics processor work on a Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop


YES, Zian it will work....BUT,....................

1) It is a PCI graphics card, and uses a PCI expansion slot.

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2898922&CatId=319

The Dell Dimension 2400 Desktop PC's motherboard, has three long white PCI slots,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/techov.htm#1105465

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-Dimension-2400-Desktop-Motherboard-System-Main-Board-F5949-K5148-G1548-/190750417467?pt=Motherboards&hash=item2c699c623b

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conventional_PCI

If one of those long white PCI slots is open, you can use a PCI graphics card.

Concerned that the graphics card uses DDR3 graphics memory, and your computer only uses DDR Sdram ram memory?

Don't be.

The graphics card has it's own processor (Graphics Processing Unit), and graphics memory.
It runs independent of the system resources; the Processor and Ram Memory.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

The concern is the Power Supply.
Original power supply's maximum rated Wattage is either 200 Watts, or 250 Watts.

The above graphics card requires a minimum system requirement/power supply requirement; of 300 Watts.

I would recommend replacing the Power Supply.
(Especially with it's age, if it is still the same one)

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1389575&CatId=1078

ONE thing though..............
Watch the 20-pin ATX main power cable connector, and the wires in it. Be sure they are in the standard place setup.

Check the pinout, and color code of the wires,

1) Dell Dimension 2400 desktop computer, 20-pin ATX main power cable connector pinout,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/techov.htm#1105612

2) STANDARD 20-pin ATX main cable connector pinout, and color code of wires; as set by JEDEC,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

[Be aware that the ATX main power cable, and connector, you get with a new power supply; such as the above, will have a 20 =4-pin ATX main power cable connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20plus4

Use the 20-pin connector, tie the 4-pin power cable up out of the way]

For a time period Dell was making the motherboard's main power cable connector - Proprietary.
Meaning they has that motherboard connector wire pinout changed.
Colors of wires were in a different place, than the standard setup by JEDEC.

Orange wires are 3.3 Volts (DC)
Red wires are 5 Volts (DC)
Yellow wires are 12 Volts (DC)
Black wires are Ground wires.

Guess what happens if a 12 Volt Yellow wire, is plugged into where a Black Ground wire is supposed to be?

ZZZZZZzzzzt! Motherboard fries, processor fries, ram memory fries, and graphics card. (If used)

Check the color code of the wires, in the 20-pin ATX main power cable's CONNECTOR, for the Dimension 2400's power supply.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

When i turn on mt pc it beeps 9 times and noyhing


What you are hearing is a "post error code".

The codes vary depending on the manufacture.
For instance if you have a Dell 2400 trying searching the web for "Dell 2400 post beeps".

Although I believe 9 beeps is commonly a CMOS error.
If so, you can try clearing the CMOS.
You will have to know how to get to the Computer BIOS screen to set things if you do clear/reset the configuration.

Tried to upgrade dell dimension 2400 256 memory cards.


If you do not see any activity and no beeps then the memory module could either be not seated right or was damaged by static. Or you could have knocked something loose (nah that never happens ;-])

To boot and generate a beep code the motherboard needs to see the first 64k of ram. So you can be sure that the problem or part of it will be the #1 memory module. So take it out and reseat it, and then try again. If nothing then swap it's position with the other module and see if that works.

Look around the case and then reseat any connectors. You may need to pull them off and then push them back on to be sure. The heat cycles from the boards running can cause them to work loose and then they just need a bump or a brush to disconnect. On some cases you can do the same just by picking it up by the corners. The case twists and pop.

If nothing is out and it still won;t work your other option is to start swapping parts into the other case to verify they are working.

How do I check a dell dim 2400 pwr supply w/o using a mohterboard?


Sorry you are having trouble.

The easy way to take it to Fry's or Best Buy and let them check it.
The other way is to jumper the proper pins on the connector together and use a volt meter to verify that the voltages are within an acceptable range.

Dell dim. 4700 is beeping loudly when attempting to turn on


Hello there betsyjmp.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Those beeps you hear ... they are a very, very good thing. It's your motherboard trying to tell you about something possibly being amis, in the only language she knows.

Refer to the code indexes for your PC here. Attempt to determine a match, then take whatever corrective actions are advised.

Good luck betsyjmp, and please post back ...

My dell dimension 2400 beeps morse code like and won't load


you have to follow the beeps very well to understand wat is the problem, each type of beep gives you sign for problem. so check if its one beep, two, or three, short or long, this makes very easy to you to define the problem.
Try to take out that parallel port if your pc works fine, this means this connector was not compitable to your board.

Best regards

On booting up, computer can not load keyboard system.


One possible problem is that your PS2 keyboard port at the back of your PC is ruined. In time, those so called "outlets" become loose specially the ones with cables which usually got pulled or tangled and make the port strained and the contacts get loose.
If that is the case, you might need to replace the keyboard port, or just stick with your usb keyboard.

Dell gx 150


Chuck,
The 6 beeps are an error code. You should note a pattern such as 3 beeps, short pause, 1 beep, short pause, 2 beeps. Also, you may have a set of 4 error indicators on the back of the unit that will show a pattern of green and yellow lights. In any case, you will want to try to run the Dell diagnostics. Let us know the beep pattern and the light pattern and we should be able to give you some more specific information.
