Go to F2 and check the time and date if this is wrong you may need to change the COSMOS battery take off the side panel you will see a large watch type battery it is sprung loaded just replace it.
or insert your operating system disks follow the on screen prompts.

I would like to reboot my dell dimension 8300


Hello,

1.Press Start> ShutDown> Restart and OK. It will power down and restart (reboot).

If you cannot do that (for wathever reason), press the Power Down button for about 10 seconds. The computer will turn off. After that you will be able to turn it back on again.


Hope it helps

I BOUGHT CHEAP RAM, EBAY, DELL DIMENSION 8300 HUMMING


This system supports ECC and non-ECC Rambus modules. ECC and non-ECC modules can be mixed but ECC feature will be disabled. Modules must be installed in pairs. multiple modules - PC800 the max is 2 GBs
systems tool...run disc clean up...put a check mark in every box, you don' need anything there as it is all copies you have elsewhere...
then defraggment also in system tools.
If you really feel like making that ole girl hum, do a complete reinstall using the latest drivers from the dell site. If you use your service tag number it will select the better drivers for your application.

go to this page for drivers (above) select your operating system (2000-ME-XP-Vista).
hope this helps you. Please leave rating

Will not start


That's just about the opposite of what most systems would like. The colder they are, the better they run. There's a good chance your power supply is dying. Also, check and make sure the vents are not clogged with dust.
