Dell XPS 600 just dies. Power shuts off with no messages.


This could be one of Three different things:

1) Your PC is overheating. Clean out the dust around the processor fan and intake vents. Make sure that your fan is working. Make sure that the North and South Bridge chips are not overheating either (the two other large chips on the motherboard)

2) Your Motherboard has defective Capacitors. Once your Capacitors start bulging or leaking, the board will need to be replaced.

3) Your Power supply is failing. Not dead yet, but enough of a pause in power distribution to cause the entire system to go down. Power supply can be replaced as well.

I have a Foxconn LS-36 Revision A01 Motherboard. The Model number is: CN-OGC375-13740-5AG-00CU. (The first O might be a 0). At any rate this MB is on a Dell XPS 600 unit, which has died and I have a Raid 0...


Dell has proprietary motherboards, so most retail mobos out in the market would either not fit into the chassis. if the system is still in warranty. call in for a replacement mobo. otherwise try reaching their out-of-warranty dept/ spare parts dept.

My Dell XPS 420 will not turn on. Power light


Hey! Nice Computer! ( At least while it was working! Specifications show some high-end hardware parts)

Steady amber light on the Power On light, means a bad power supply.

The Dell XPS 420 uses the standard ATX style of power supply found in 90% of computers out there.
(Personal computers. Not the Cray Supercomputers!)

This is Dell Support, and the User Manual - Removing and Replacing Parts - part of the manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps420/en/OM/HTML/parts.htm#wp1466871

From Me:

1) Computer unplugged from power, computer case open. TOUCH the metal frame BEFORE you reach inside.
Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out computer hardware components.
You won't see it, or feel it.

Computer unplugged from power, you are safe.
Touch the metal frame Before reaching inside, your computer is safe.

Should you get up for any reason, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again)

You either have a 375 Watt, or a 425 Watt power supply.
I would recommend a power supply with more Wattage, and more Amp's on the 12 Volt power rail.

The Dell XPS 420 comes with an Intel Core2 Duo processor, or an Intel Core2 Extreme processor.

These puppy's can use a lot of power when gamin', or other intense programs are being used.

The Nvidia GeForce 8800 Series of graphics cards offered, use a lot of power when maxed out.

The motherboard with the Intel X38 motherboard chipset, uses a lot of power.

I would recommend a 600 watt power supply for a replacement.

My recommendation would be an OCZ StealthXStream 600W

Why?

1) If the temperature of this PSU is kept under 118 degrees Fahrenheit, the PSU can put out 728.8 Watts reliably. (47.9 degrees Celsuis)

2) It has Four - 12 Volt power rails.
EACH power rail can handle 18 Amps.
That's a total of 72 Amps!

3) It has all the power cables you'll need.

A) 20 + 4-pin ATX motherboard power cable
B) 8-pin 12 Volt power cable (8-pin EPS)
C) 4-pin ATX power cable
D) SATA power cables [ 3 ]
E) Peripheral power cables, (4-pin Molex) [ 6 ]
F) 6-pin PCI power cables. [ 2 ]

Dell XPS 600 beeping noice


there are 2 things that can cause that, memory failure, or mother board, cheeper route to go would be replace your memory first, and see if that corrects the problem, if not then, check anything new you installed inside such as video card, lan cards, of something like that, if that doesn't work you need to have it looked at and possibly the mother board replaced,

Have to replace Nvidia GeForce 7300 GS video card


Yes, the card will work as your board has a PCI Express x16 slot according to the eMachines Specs

Just don't expect performance miracles out of it, while better than your on-board video it is definitely not "enthusiast" grade.

XPS 600 serious Boot up Problems!


sounds to me like the fan is on the way out ,and if the cpu gets too hot the pc will shut down.
check that the fan is not obstructed,clean it if it is full of dust, replace it if it is not working as it should.

also listen to the power supply fan, is it working ok,this could cause the same type of problem but for different reasons.

good luck
Terry
