Hard drive failure in system less than 2 years old!!

Since you are comfortable with working inside your computer, the best thing to do now is to purchase an external enclosure for your type of hard drive, SATA or EIDE.

Alternately you can use a live linux cd, boot up with that, and transfer your data to an external drive.

Once your data is safe, try booting to the Windows cd and attempt a repair installation.

And finally, yes, hard drives can go bad in 2 years or less.

How do I remove and replace a CPU cooling fan on my Dell Dimension 2400

Make sure u can open the casing well to expose the interior parts without causing any damage. Then by close look at the processor area , that is where the heat sink is located. Normally the dell dimension 2400 has a green channel shaped structure that acts as a passage for the air that enters in and out for cooling the heat sink. It has a locking parts that slides into the casing back by slight pressing to the back of the casing just behind the processor area, be so observant to notice the locking parts. then the fan is just fixed behind that green " channel like" and its fixed on the rear side of the casing, 25275582-o0cuhlgwrl13okm3u3q5444d-5-0.jpg

the mail problem with those dells is the video card was not very good. you can go to dell and put in the tag number and download the drivers for it and that might help. the old dell was a xp machine and it might be the only drivers you can get for that. if you have upgraded to windows 7 there are not drivers for that in w7

How do i get connected to internet

you got drivers on dvd. find the dvd, and usually it's the one with dell logo. you have to install Drivers from that and your dell will Fly. You have to install: graphic card dvd, dell dvd, and audio drivers. also, check in control panel/system/hardware  if in front of system components there's a ? mark or !. install those things.

I installed Windows XP and now my Movie Maker

Here's the Microsoft Page for using Movie Maker on XP,

How to fix a dell monitor dimension 2400 power button broken

The last guest left us hanging with, "easy fix" so, I ventured ahead to see what I could see by opening up my lcd, which was a puzzle in itself. After UNPLUGGING the monitor and removing the stand and the 4 obvious screws in the back, turn the monitor onto its back and placing your palms against one side of the monitor, and using your FINGER TIPS, gently pull back the plastic lip away from the LCD screen. Move along the lip, doing this a little bit at a time. You'll hear and feel it snap loose. Repeat on the remaining three sides. It may take a few rotations to free all the sides, doing a little at a time, so as not to put undo stress on the plastic that is not yet loose. The bottom lip from behind which lies the offending "on/off" button will not move as freely as the other sides because of the ribbon cord that attaches the circuit panel to the main body. So STOP pulling when you feel it become taught and carefully turn the monitor onto its face to complete the face's removal. Undo the cloth tape that secures the ribbon cable to the monitor. This will give you the necessary slack you need to do your dirty work. BTW, we're not disconnecting the ribbon cable from its connections- that would be bad - just remove that haphazardly placed piece of tape used to keep the thing snug and save it for when you're ready to close it back up. OKAY! There a four tiny screws that affix the green circuit board. You'll need a thin, jewelers type phillips head or a one from a synthe-sized tool set to remove these. Now, if your issue is like mine, you'll see when you again carefully remove the circuit board, that the on/off button has cracked off of the piece that holds it. This is why the button remained stuck in one positon when it was depressed. Re-align it so that it is uniform to the other buttons and place a few small strips of cut electrical tape to hold it in place to the end where it broke off. Crazy glue or the like won't give the button the flexability it needs and will probably just crack again. What the tape (I layered 3 strips) will do, once the circuit board is scewed back, is allow the button to return to position after it's pushed. I just did this and so far, after a dozen on/offs it's still working. Good luck. Go have a beer.

You need to reset it to factory defaults. Several youtube videos can help you (I have exact printer but book is put away). Have you done anything to it lately with ink cartridges and the like? may need to get some mineral spirits, take out ink cartridges, and clean contacts with swab. Try the reset first, though.

if you right click on my computer and go to manage you should be given a window with the device manager listed. click on device manager and all your devices will be listed there. if any have a question mark than more than likely your driver is not installed or installed incorrectly. if there are any red exclamation marks or red x's than your device is not working or disabled. you can always right click on the device and go to properties to read further about it. if it is disabled you can try to enable it here but you may have to enable it in the bios durring the boot up process of the computer. if none of this is the case or does not work than your ethernet port probably got surged and no longer work a sure way to tell if this is the case is to look at the port the lights should only come on if the cable is plugged in and the computer is turned on. if the lights do not come on or stay on even when it is unplugged than your port is bad and you can just run to walmart and get a pci network card for like $15.
