    Dell Dimension 2400 -- Bios Screen with beeps


    Hello,

    I am having a problem with my Dell Dimension System When I turn it on it doesn't display any video on the monitor. Now I have tried two monitors and neither worked therefore it isn't the monitor. I have an integrated Intel graphics accelerator on board. Also, I have checked the status code lights -- Found on dells website. this flashes first but quickly disappears: "AD" is lit orange which refers to IDE bus failure has occurred. and then this flashes and stays: "BC" is lit orange which refers to System board resource and/or hardware failure.( I believe this could be the GPU )


    any help would be appreciated,

    thanks puzzledplane
