I don't know if the codes are the same from machine to machine, and not knowing what you have I can't say too much, except that they are most likely related. Have you tried booting without your external drive connected to see if it has gone bad? In other words, if all lights up normally without the drive in place, it is probably the drive... Just for the fun of it, I looked up the codes on a Dimension 2350 - those codes can be found here... But they may be different on your machine. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2350/advanced.htm#1118998
It's kind of sadly funny the way it just says another failure has occured. You're right, not too specific.
I don't have any help at all there - sounds like it's Dell's way of saying that it could be anything.
Good luck - Perhaps someone else here can shed light, but the code seems so vague that I can't imagine there's any one thing to look for...
Sorry I can't help.
