As it goes yes you can upgrade, just find out the manufacturer of the motherboard, and the model number you will be able to find out what graphics card it supports, if its a new pc, then no doubt it will have a PCI Express slot and i know they can take good graphics cards

kind regards

There is a reset jumper on the motherboard or look for similar issues on various Dell PC forums and how the were fixed.

Test dell xps 210 power


Most laptop power supplies are made for a particular brand, so the best way to test is in another Dell laptop. The other way is using a voltimeter, first testing the power cord alone, and then testing the tiny connector.

While cleaning I took the processor out and now my Dell XPS 410 wont start.


I do not understand what do you want to find under the processor??? Leprechauns???

If you desperately want to clean your computer, never ever use vacuum cleaner, if you want to clean heatsink and fan, exactly remove only and only fan, brush and blow heatsink if you must.

Now, again, as you did put already your computer to pieces:

1. switch off computer, remove power cord from teh socket
2. remove again the wall,
3. remove heatsink and fan, check if processor is correctly installed, replace heatsink and fan,
4. remove and re-insert memory sticks, thes have tendency to burn or get moved during cleaning, check if memory is correctly inserted
5. check power connectors on the motherboard, 24pin as well as 4 pin
6. check power supply itself

If computer after tha procedure still do not start, tehre question arises:
1. did you used vacuum cleaner to clean?
2. did you use static strap...

If your answer is yes/no you fried your processor, memory or motherboard... or all three, check then all three components against known working computer and then replace bit which you fried...

What is a male desktop? if your in the US I would suggest you go to www.tigerdirect.com or to www,newegg.com I use Tiger Direct because they have a larger selection and most of all because they usually are great on service.

Xps gen 4 desktop power supply upgrade possibility


Buy a generic case that will accept the power supply you need. Of course you will need to transfer everything from the old case to the new case.
