SOURCE: dell xps 730 does not boot

I think it is a problem with your RAM memory. If you have 2 dims extract one and try to boot if not work extract the other one and try.

SOURCE: I have a Dell dimension XPS 400/9150, 3 years old.

Sounds like your power supply just failed. Unplug the power cord, open the case, and look for a metal box inside the case right where the power wire plugs in. Remove the box...usually four screws hold it to the case, remove all of the wires...marking each one and the motherboard so you'll be able to connect the new power supply wires. Most computer stores will have a suitable replacement. Easy replacement if you mark the wires/connections during removal. Just be sure to work with the power plug removed.

SOURCE: My xps 420 pc desktop wont boot. Shut it down last

Try and reset your CMOS and see if it helps.

If you're not sure how, then unplug the power cable from your PC, then take off the side panel, on the motherboard is a set of 2 or 3 pins to Clear the CMOS (reset the BIOS) all boards are different, so there is no set location for the CMOS pins, if you're unsure, just remove the battery from the motherboard for about 30 seconds, then replace it ("+" facing up)

But you need to make sure your PS is not plugged into any external power source while you're doing this or you risk deleting your BIOS

Hope this helps in some way.

SOURCE: My XPS 200 keeps shutting down and power light blinks

If it does it when it "gets loud" it is obviously overheating. That will cause it to do lots of things including shut down-it may also render your HDD/system inoperative.
Just out of curiosity, have you opened it up and cleaned the dust bunnies out??

Dell XPS 730 no display yellow light


One bad or faulty lead connection can cause a computer to continue restarting on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard


Hope this helps.

I have Dell XPS 420 , with windows home server running for some time. I tried to insall/upgrade RAM from 3 gb to 6 gb. So, i found the right RAM (2x2GB) and removed the two old 512 mb from the slot and...


According the the dell specification you can only install up to 4gb, so I don't understand you saying that you were upgrading from 3gb to 6gb. Make sure that all the ram that is installed is of the same brand and speed (667 / 800 MHz Dual Channel Dual DDR2 SDRAM). The fact that it is saying no boot device also would suggest that it is possibly something wrong with your harddrive, whether it was corrupted or damaged while you were changing the RAM, if you have a spare harddrive try installing and booting from it. If that doesn't work it could be a motherboard issue, which the BIOS should be update, all the jumpers on the board should be checked etc. Its rather hard to diagnose a problem such as this, and the fact that after you installed the new RAM, even the old RAM would not work, suggests that you may have damaged something while messing around in the computer.

Our XPS keeps shutting down on its own, says it detected an error, then we try to restart and it goes to a blue screen, doesn't restart right.


Unplug any hardware, modems, sound cards, video cards, ect. Start CPU, go into bios settings by hitting delete, or F10 button as soon as it starts to boot,, load set up defaults, restart into normal mode. Or, as soon as cpu starts re boot, press F8 and choose last known good configuration. Hope this helps!

Dell XPS 730 no video, not bios, fan running hard


Fist touching anything on the motherboard without a anti-static strap can kill the motherboard.

The fan running at full speed is no big deal. If you took out the video card
how do you expect to see anything on the monitor.

You need to plug the monitor you have into a working computer, this will rule out the monitor. If the monitor died, you did all this for nothing.

Now unless the motherboard has onboard video you have to put the card back in, if it does have onboard, even without the drivers installed you still see the post, because windows will let it run at post, and with the video card, it will still show post without drivers.

Do this,check monitor, try both ports and post back and tell us whats
going on.

Computer shut on and off repeats over and over again


When you say "funny noise", you could have a hard drive failing. On Dells, if you push F12 while booting, you should get a boot menu. Diagnostics should be in that menu, it's a Dell feature. Anyway go in there and run some tests and see if it reveals anything. If the tests pass cleanly, you may just have a Windows problem.

Dell xps 730 19 in 1 memory card reader and bluetooth not working


Hi,
Kindly un-install both the drivers for blue-tooth and wireless card from your computer. Just right click on each driver in the device manager select remove or un-install. Restart your computer and re-download the drivers from the dell support site.


www.support.dell.com

Note: dell support site would only contain drivers , for your xps system h/w that came from dell. if you have attached the wireless and blue-tooth later , you might need to download them from manufacturer website

Thanks
