Dell XPS 400 tower does not power up monitor?

The tower powers up but does not turn on the monitor, I tried turning on the speakers to see if the introduction music plays ( to see if the monitor is bad,) but nothing. If you don't know or if this means anything ,the XPS 400 has numbers on the front that cycle through till it powers up correctly but they stop at 2 4 then one fan gets louder and still no monitor. how this happened is my son was playing his game and he left it for awhile and I guess the monitor went off, the tower stayed on but the monitor went off. I tried unpluging the monitor from the tower and the color test screen came on (again, if that means anything) I have the yellow light on but no green.

I hope you guys have an answer THANKS ALOT

    My xps 400 shut down in the middle of a WoW raid. said i have a hardware error and just shut down. computer turns on (power light green on steady) with light 2 and 4 on but monitor says no signal. I have reseated my memory, HDD, and GPU and even put in memory that i knew was good and working, and put in a new GPU. green cylinder light comes on but no activity. is it the MB? seems that fans would not run, HDD wouldnt even try to spool up, and GPU fan would not run if the MB crapped out. but i am not a tech. tech lever is low to med. please help no WoW makes me sad :(

    My Dell XPS will turn on lights 3 and 4 are green. However, the monitor in not responding. It's as if the monitor is staying in sleepmode with just the yellow light on .

The “self test” on the monitor displays when not plugged into a computer. This means that it’s working. The LED error code 2 and 4 means the video subsystem has a problem. Either your video card is bad or bad memory module. Try reseating video card and/or memory.

Try connecting the monitor to a friend's computer. If you get some sort of a display it's not the problem. When you say that the computer makes a new noise like the fans are spinning fast, you might have an issue with the video card , motherboard, or power supply.

Led light is solid on my dell xps 400 and system wont start? any ideas?


Can you be more specific when you say the system won't start?

If the system does not turn on at all or turns on for a second and then shuts off it is very likely due to a power failure. If you have installed any new harware recently unplug it and try to start the system again. If problem persists it is likely faulty power supply which a fairly cheap fix.

Why did my xps 400 just quit, The only thing that works on it is, the cooling fan at high speed


The fans running full tilt are an indication of a NO POST failure with the motherboard.

The POWER LED on the tower, is it Solid Green? Solid Amber? Flashing Amber?

The diagnostic LEDs? (Numbered 1234) are any illuminated?

General trouble shooting is as follows:
  1. Power system off, disconnect all external connections except the power cord, turn the system on see if any change. If you get a change, reconnect items one at a time till you ID the failure. (Twice I've seen a bad mouse cause a no post, so don't assume items are good) If no change go to step 2
  2. If no change, then POWER LED is likely a solid amber. Open the tower, remove all PCI and PCI-E cards, see if the symptoms change. If they do, like before add items back one at a time till you ID the failure.
  3. Disconnect power to all drives, see if anything changes ....
  4. Remove the RAM, see if there is a change, if no change then replace the motherboard. If you get a change, try RAM modules individually see if one is faulty.

It sounds like the machine is experiencing hardware problems. You will either need to call Dell or take it into a local computer repair place.

Monitor rejects computer


I'm just guessing, but it could be that the resolution you are using on your MS-DOS monitor is not compliant with the new monitor you are trying to use. Check the supported resolutions of the monitor that you would like to use, and then make sure you set that resolution before switching monitors.

Xps 600 tower does not power up the monitor


The system will turn off if you hold down the power button for 10 secs. Can you check if other monitors work fine with this system?? (my best guess is - NO) since this monitor works well with other systems, the monitor being a failure is ruled out. So this boils down to a system failure & not a failed monitor. Worst case scenario this one must be a Motherboard & Power supply issue.
