    I removed and installed each chip of ram. The computer recognizes it. It also checks out ok in the self check. When I try to run set up from the XP Disk the files show up as the cd reads them but when it asks me to repair or install the message I get says "Can not find Hard Disk" If you have any thing else I could try let me know. Thanks for your help!

No sound hardware found


If you are using the onboard sound driver, make sure you have the latest drivers and software. Same goes if you are using an add-on expansion board sound card.

For the onboard sound card, you will need Realtek ALC3861 Audio Driver installed. You can download this driver directly from Dell's web site by visiting Dell.com and clicking on support.

To make sure they know what model computer you have, enter your computers service tag number. If your machine was built with an OEM addon card, it will list those drivers too!

Dell xps 410 was in use, it beeped and shut down. Then it started powering up and off repeatedly. I pulled the plug to stop the sequence. When I repowered it, it now comes on, fan runs, dvd drives


It sounds as if you have a virus of some kind. I have just dealt with a similar problem. Even after the virus(s) were removed the service was still unable to start. The Operating System had been corrupted and required a re-install to get the system working again. System repair and restore failed. If the only problem is the fan running at full speed then you may need to apply a new layer of thermal paste. This stuff can go dry if you use the cheap stuff or it is old.

I have Dell destop model XPS-420 my computer is not getting on NO FAN and no noise please advise me what should I have to do


hi

are you saying the fan is not working ? if that's the case, you need to replace the fan.
get the service tag # located on back of your desktop PC, go to this link below, place service tag in appropriate box . it will give you part numbers for the peripherals of this computer. locate the fan and purchase replacement.this is all you have to do. DO NOT TURN ON THE COMPUTER UNTIL THIS FAN IS REPLACED, or you will damage the mainboard and/or CPU.

No sound on computer, no beeps and no talking on videos


The good news is that driver detective should be easy enough to get your money back, but you'll most likely have to wait days or weeks to see it again.

As for the sound, Did the computer ever play sounds? Dell has a relatively easy to navigate driver download system on their website. You'll need your Service Tag (S/T) number to get the most correct driver.

If you follow this link, then click on Enter My Service Tag, it will take you where you need to go get drivers for the Dell.

you will need to have Flash installed on your computer for the website to work. You can download that free if you do not have it at www.adobe.com

Video & sound problem


On your Dell computer is a service tag. Contact dell with that number and they will tell you what card is installed in that computer.

XPS usually contain either an ATI or an NVidia card. Thats about all I know. I had to replace one with a newer video a few months ago for a client of mine because Dell didn't support the machine and couldn't pinpoint the model number of card. I know on the website there are about 4 to 6 of them to choose from.
