SOURCE: Do I have an ethernet card?

Yes, Intel Pro/1000 is gigabit ethernet, which will do 100Mbps and 10Mbps too.
This will be compatable with your broadband requirements.

SOURCE: Questions about replacing ethernet card on my Dell desktop

Any ethernet card will work fine. Just be sure it's the fit's the correct slot. You probably have a "white" slot which is a pci slot. If it's a longer "black" slot then it's isa. More than likely it came from a pci slot. Before you buy one, confirm the type of slot. In additon, before installing it go to control panel and system settings, hardware, device manager and remove the old one by right clicking it and select delete or remove. Shut down the computer follow instructions for new card.
Probably will have to install the drivers first then shut down and install the new card. Good Luck.

I have a web cam in my monitor. It won't work, the computer (XPS 420) won't even recognize it. How do I get it?


Kindly check if it's still detected on Device Manager. If the driver has been removed, there should be a question mark right beside the name of the device. Try reinstalling the driver, support.dell.com. To simplify your search, type in te service tag number of your computer. (It's a 7 alpha numeric identifier code which can be found on the dell sticker)

Dean Fowler,
The 1-3 error code that you are saying that your computer is making represents a Video Memory Test failure. Try reseatting the video card in your computer or replace the video card.

I have a dell xps that came with a wireless/bluetooth keyboard with mouse pad and i have another dell xps 420 that i'd like to use the wireless keyboard on...they are both dell xps's and both


Wireless/Bluetooth keyboards and mice can only be used with one device at a time it is like a bluetooth headset once it is paired with a phone it will 99.99% of the time only work with that phone and that phone only, Wireless keyboards and mice are setup on the same principal once they are paired up with 1 PC to use on another PC you have to remove the pairing. The worst case scenario is that the second PC's Wireless/Bluetooth has failed. I hope this helps.

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 ]

Xps 420 keeps freezing or going to blue screen


Same with my Dell Vostro 420. At this rate I will just buy a new PC as I am wasting too much time on this. We tried usual stuff like cleaning inside, making cooler, removing certain virus software, still no luck. I have to restart 4 times a day and keep saving material. Can only restart by turning it off by pulling out power socket.
