Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I tried to reformat my dell dimension 4700, after I tried to use KILLDISK software. It sounds the HDD blocked I could hear locking sound of the HDD whenever I try to use Killdisk or when I try to format it it displays floppy diskette failure. I tried to change settings from the Bios to put the CD/DVD setting at the top and once I restart it formatting it gets to the point says (set up didnt find any hard disk drivers installed in your computer). Only F3 option is dislpayed at the bottom in the silver bar. Any suggestion to solve this issue?

It sounds to me like the on-board HDD controllers are dead. Have a look at the motherboard... I'll wager you'll see a fried capacitor right in the middle. Common Dell failure :(

I need to reformat my dell 4700. It locks up and lags real bad. I have had it cleaned and it helped some. . I was not shipped an OS disc when I bought it from dell. Will the OS stay on the HD when I re format or will I need a disc? I have 40% of my memory. Thanks for any help.

Try resetting the BIOS, see if the drive re-detects
  1. Boot to BIOS F2
  2. turn on all 3 lock lights (NUMLOCK, CAPSLOCK< SCROLL LOCK)
  3. Press ALT+E, then ALT+F then ALT +B and system will reboot and re-detect drives
  4. If HDD is not detected, reseat data and power cable connections, try again
  5. if still no go, then HDD has likely failed

Dell Dimension 4700 PC Speaker No Sound


Check to make sure all cables are connected. After this you will need to click on your sound card properties and set it to 5.1. which will allow all the speakers to play.

Please note you will need to have a card that supports 5.1 sound I do not believe the stock card in the Dell supports this feature which could be the problem.

Move HD from Dimension 4300 into Dimension 4700 / XP HomeED both.


You can change the hard drive, but it will create major driver issues.
You will have to let the computer tell you which drivers are missing and go back and download them from the manufacturers website or use the software that you have.
You cannot damage the hdd doing this.

The easy way to do this would be to install this as a secondary hdd, this would allow for more storage and less problems.
