Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop ?

My dell dimension 2400 will not boot up. It goes to a black screen and displays either keyboard failure or F1 or F2 options


Answers :

This can usually be solved by resetting the CMOS.\015\012
\015\012Unplug the power from the back of the tower. Open the side of your case and locate the round battery near the lower-right side of the main board. Pop the battery out. Just below it you should see 2 little gold colored pins sticking up. Right around it it should say 'Clear CMOS' in very fine print. Take a small screwdriver and hold it to the two pins so they are shorted or touching each other through the screwdriver for a few seconds. Place the battery back in the machine and see if this works.
