All lights at the back of Dimension 8400 are green. When I start computer will shut down on the screen is All the write-up if the computer shut down first time...
At the bottom of the screen is (0x00000018,0x00000002,0x00000000,0xF6712261)
I cant even do clean install. Go back to this same screen. Any idea ?

Did you try a clean install with a cd or by using the setting to go back to the original manufacturer's settings?

Above the (0x00000018,0x00000002,0x00000000,0xF6712261) will be something that says STOP and another set of numbers.
Could you let us know what that is?

Also, there's more info on the BSOD error messages here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/top...tml#entry409491
