I have a Dell Dimension 2400 desktop. It needs a monitor. I tried new ones from Best Buy and Office Max but they say no signal when I hook them up..I tried this computer with monitor in the following


Thank you for replying,
As per the diagnostic LED's, it is an issue with Video initialization failure. Your computer has onboard Graphics which is built into the Motherboard.
Video Initialization failure could happen if there is :
Unseated AGP card
Bad AGP card
Bad motherboard

As per your Svc Tag your system doesn't have AGP Graphics Card, Probable issue with MOBO.
This computer doesn't have a AGP Slot (Graphics Card Slot) to try connecting Graphics Card.
Need to repair/replace MOBO.

Thanks.

Cannot enter bios in the standard way with F2. I believe IDE controller is set to disable


Turn on your computer. If your computer is already on, then reboot it.

You need to see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS.


Press the F1 key immediately in one second intervals when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information.

The majority of Gateway computers use the F1 key.

If, for some reason this does not work, then use the F2.

All of Gateway's desktops use the F1 or F2 keys.


hope this helps

    Turn on your computer. If your computer is already on then reboot it. You need to see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS.

    Press the "F2" key when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information. If using the Optiplex and Dimension models, press the "DEL" key instead of the "F2" key.

    Enter password if required. When finished in the BIOS be sure to save your changes. For changes to take place you must reboot the computer.

    New HDD Not Recognized by Computer

    This occurs when the HDD is not “Initialized” by the disc management system in Windows. If you do not have software that came with HDD or the HDD is a secondary drive for backup and is not to be used as an initial boot device, then when you installed the drive it did not go through the necessary steps or Windows simply failed to do it’s job. In this case, connect the drive as you normally would, go to the control panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Look in the left Pane, scroll down and click on Disk Management.
    Your drives will be listed here, even if they are not initialized. Look below the top pane and find the disk that is listed without a drive letter. If you look at where the drive is named, it will also say “offline”. Right click in this area that says “offline” and click on “Initialize”. The system will ask a few questions, just click ok to what it asks, this will initialize the disk and you can then partition the new drive to how you want it set up.

    I run XP on my computer, I installed a new hard drive. But I can't initialize it. Under device manager its detected but it is not listed at MY COMPUTER tab thefore I can't use it. Thank you


    Right click on my computer on your desktop, or in the start menu, and select manage.

    Then on the management window, on the left side click on disk management, you will have to initialize and format the disk there.

    My computer lost all its memory and is claiming to need a system recovery cd where can i get it


    System recovery can be accessed during initial boot up before the Windows screen comes up. In most cases you need to press F11 to begin system recovery. There should be a message that flashes across the top of the screen shortly after you turn on the computer that instructs you to press F11 for emergency recovery. Do it. If you do not see a message, try pressing the F11 key several times right after you start your computer, sometimes the message to enter recovery does not appear because the manufacturer places there logo page on the initial screen.
