Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

No response from my system upon power up except for fan

\015 On power up only fans turn on desktop was not in use for 3 months\015

Answers :

Open up the case and unplug everythng except for these items :
\015\012Power Supply
\015\012(video card if no onboard video)
\015\012and see if it comes on, if it does, then add each hardware part one at a time to find the bad one.
\015\012If it still doesnt respond, unplug all power and remove the CMOS Battery on the Motherboard. Then let it sit for 5 minutes. Then try it again.
\015\012If that still doesnt fix the problem then you will have to get some new or "Known to be good" hardware to swap out the parts above.
\015\012If your using a new Power Supply & Memory and the only thing else thats still plugged in is the Motherboard & CPU and still no no screen, then odds are its the Motherboard...
\015\012Hope this helps, when the problem is down to this basic level, the only thing you can do is try other parts doing the "trial and error" aproch.

I can seldom go for more than a couple hours without this occurring, sometimes only a couple minutes. The only cure is a reboot. I'm pretty sure it's a hardware problem.
