Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
According to this Dell troubleshooting page, your memory (RAM) modules are producing the error.
You should first remove and re-seat the modules to see if that will correct the error. This page will walk you through how to open your computer and how to remove and reinstall your RAM.
Since your computer is a few years old, check for oxidation on the contact points (the gold points where the RAM is inserted into the motherboard). If the contacts are not bright and shiny, take a pencil eraser and gently rub the contacts to remove any oxidation. Use a can of compressed air in short bursts and blow off any left over eraser shavings from the RAM module before you reinsert them.
If oxidation is not a problem, you may need to replace the RAM modules. I purchased this RAM for my 2400 a few years ago. Keeping in mind this RAM is a few generations old now, 1GB is the most effective size and price point for the RAM required. I am not affiliated with either Corsair or Newegg, but they are both excellent in what they do and I have used the site and products almost all my builds. Also, when installing RAM I try to use pairs so I have a little redundancy if one should fail.
