dell boot checkpoint [Ithr]

dell boot checkpoint [Ithr]
Hi, can you please provide more info on your issue?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

System system is a Dell Dimension 8400.

It won't boot




Alert!: Previous attempts at booting this system have failed at checkpoint [Ithr].

This indicates a hardware problem. In many cases, it is a USB device connected to your computer. Please try to disconnect all USB devices, and boot again.
If still doesn't work, tell me if any lights are on or flashing, or any beeps sounding.
