From your explanation it like the problem come from your motherboard, your motherboard was damaged, and you need to change the motherboard with new one

When i turn on my Dell Inspiron 2400 Desktop Computer why won`t it start.


Is the computer plugged in to a known good power source with a known good power cord? Also, make sure the power is fully seated on both ends. When you press the power button are you getting any indicator lights? The power button itself has an LED that will be either solid green, blinking green, solid amber, blinking amber, or off. Do you hear any beeps?

After automatic updates and a restart, diagonstic lights A & C were yellow and D & B green, nothing comes up on screen, this happen before after an update but i got it to start after several a


If all diagnostic lights are on, then that means that it has something with the software of your computer. The update has affected some of the programs inside your computer thus it's booting up fine.

I suggest that you access safe mode and do a system restore from there. If you don't know how to access safe mode, then follow these:

1. Turn off your computer.
2. turn it on and keep tapping F8 until you see the options. You should see safe mode.
3. Use the arrow keys to select safe mode, then press enter.
4. Your computer should boot up to safe mode.
5. Access the system restore. You can find it in accessories, system tools, system restore. or you can search.
6. restore your computer to the known good date where your computer was still working fine.
7. After completing the on screen procedures, let your computer restart by itself (it may take minutes or more). It will restart and it should boot to the normal windows.

Good Luck!

I hope this helps.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 and it had been working fine until recently. When powering on, it goes to the Dell screen, then there is 2 beeps and won't boot up. I checked the lights in the back for...


I've had a look at the Dell website, at

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/SYSTEMS/dim2400/en/sm_en/advtshoo.htm

Which basically tells you to do what you've already done.

All I can suggest is you check again, but both ends of the ide connections to mother board and HDD / Disk drives.

If its dusty in there, I'd remove clean and reseat the ram and any PCI cards as well.

I have a dell dimension 2400. My starts up fine


Most likely a motherboard issue.

Also ensure the CPU Heatsink is firmly attached. If the heatsink is loose, replace the plastic heatsink retainer

If it is secure, then the motherboard is the most likely failure point

Dell Dimension 2400 that has had a power surge


Um, unless you are happy soldering VERY finely and under pressure then go for it, but to be honest, you can pick one up for £30-£50 that will have everything you need and more!

Can't get pass the background screen when pc load


The sequence is:
a) The Dell bios splash screen is displayed,
b) the screen will go black,
c) the disk activity light will flash for about 5 - 7 seconds, then will remain off.
d) you force a power off,
e) wait a few seconds,
f) then turn the machine back on.
g) The bios splash screen is displayed,
h) then a black screen with white text is displayed, reporting that Windows was not shut down nicely and would I like to boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking, or others.
g1) If you choose Safe Mode, Windows will boot up successfully. If I restart, the computer will usually (probably) boot into Windows fine.
g2) If you choose Boot Normally, the computer will usually (probably) enter the black and hung state.
see if that helps and the if possible do a do a system restore to when the system was working correctly.
