First, recover your files. download asoftech data recovery software

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

Hi there,
Unfortunately, it sound like the symptoms of a failing hard drive. You ought to connect the hard drive to another PC to check out whether it is OK.
If not,don't worry about the data on it.You can get your files back by using a data recovery program.
Try this one called Tenorshare Data Recovery. It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data due to virus corrupted partitions, drives crash, system sabotage, physical damage etc.
You can get it here: http://www.any-data-recovery.com
It is recommended that you always keep back ups of your files.
Luck!

You might only need a new power supply. Your files could probably be recovered in any case by installing the hard drive in another computer (perhaps you have a friend with a similar PC).

CPU overheated? When you cool it down it will start. You can check whether there are lots of dust on the CPU fan and the chase of the machine, they might block the air flow and overheat the CPU.

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

Yellow light on dell dimension 2400 and it won't work


HI, this is signaling an issue that is concerning the power unit(power supply). this can also be an issue with the mother board as well. you can confirm the actual issue by, inspecting the cooling fan that is on the power unit. if the power unit fan is not running when you push the power button to power up the PC, replace the power supply. if the fan is running, replace the mother board.
