Battery is deffinitly the slow boot problem, i put fixed up a old dell for a friend and before i replaced the cmos battery it was doing the exact same thing (don't forget to unplug and press the power button so you don't get shocked or harm the pc)

I have a dell dimesion 2300. I Just bought a dell dimesion 2400 on amazon.com it has windows xp on it and it came with no disk. can I install my dell 2300 windows xp operation cd on the 2400 if I ever need...


Generally, yes, if it's the same version, (e.g., "Home Edition, or "Professional", etc.Then the Operating System disk should get you going well enough to start all the necessary updates You may need to go to Dell and download the model specific driver files, updates, etc. to get everything !00%
Make sure you have the right Microsoft Product key for the installation.
Best thing you can do is back up your system and keep it somewhere separate, with all this info. There are many good free utilities for system specs., such as Belarc Advisor. It's easier to fix a broken system when you can automatically put everything right from backups, where ever possible.You are thinking ahead, instead of after a disaster!
Good luck.!

Installed new dell motherboard per tech, installed new Dell power supply as it died too. This is a Dell Dimension 2300. It won't start.


Check all connections, to the motherboard, and also to the wall Verify that the power supply is actually switched into the ON position at the rear of the computer.

Have Dell 3115cn printer, installed an Innovera cyan cartridge, and the dell keeps saying restart, will not read the cartridge


Probably a chip problem.

Its worth taking the cartridge out (with the printer switched on), close front door, wait for 'Insert C cartridge' message, switch off printer, put new cartridge in, close door, switch on - may clear the problem.

I've seen this before with these cartridges, there was a bad batch of chips around.

If still have your old cartridge, swap the chips over, and try your new toner with the old chip (and for completeess, your old toner with the new chip. If the message changes, the chip that was on the new cartridge is faulty. If it doesn't there's something wrong with the cartridge.

Either way, if there's a cartridge problem, it needs a word with the supplier.

Dell Dimensions 2300 hard drive replcement


Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 750GB Hard Drive
goes for about 180 bucks and it a IDE PATA Drive I do belive since your dimensions 2300 motherboard 3T237 is only IDE and does not have SATA

your motherboard can also handle 1 gig of ram so if you havent maxed out your motherboard yet I would highly suggest it. Ram for it wont cost you much either.

I would add the newer drive as a secoundary drive since I am sure that your operating system is pre loaded.

or you can also add external drives to your system as well for more storage as well and they are starting to come down in price as well. you have options it all depends what ya wanna do with it.

Automatic Switching off of monitor


Have you tried your card on another machine? One thing i have seen in several forums (though i have not come across it personally) is that if you run your VGA card with a PSU thats not powerful enough, the PSU may get busted but usually the graphic card due to being stressed running underpowered fails. Hence the reason why i inquired if you had tested your graphic card on another machine to see if the same symptoms occur.

If it does not happen you can then know its a problem related to the power supply, as the power supply capacitors too degrade over time, and hence they might not be giving the same power as before. Dell power supply units have been known to work well beyond there stated wattage compared to the generic systems (Some case dell 250W unit seems to run better than generic 400W units).
