Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop

2 Answers

I have a Dell XPS 400 with Microsoft XP. It recently shut down with a Blue screen stating that a recently installed driver is possibly bad. I was able to restart the CPU after a while and with in a few minutes it did it again. This time taking longer to reboot. I was trying to locate the system recovery program when it did it again. I let it sit and after a day, I am trying to reboot it and it doesn't power up the monitor it gives me a LED error code on the tower of 1 and 3. Can anyone help me with this issue???

Here’s a link to the Dell XPS 400 service manual: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps400/sm/adtshoot.htm#wp1054146
According to the error code (1 and 3), you have a problem with your memory. Defective memory can cause blue screens, no video, beeping sounds. It’s possible that you have a defective memory stick.

Dell xps wont boot from dvd just cd


Sounds like you have only a CD drive. To boot DVDs you need to have a DVD drive installed. The computer probably came with a CD drive because Win XP came on a CD.

Flashing magenta screen, blue screen and shutdown


Your screen is bad more than likely. Try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays and works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your original monitor, then the Video Card inside the computer is bad.

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.

My dell dimension xps 400 does not detect mouseand keyboard


Hi, these instructions will help you, and "everything that you do for the Keyboard; apply the same instruction to the Mouse." First, click on the "Start" button, in the ["Start Search Window], Type: keyboard; the "Keyboard" Properties window will open. You can (Test) to see exactly how your keyboard is responding. If you are still having the same problem, (check, the Keyboard Status). "Update the Drivers," by clicking on the "Properties" button. Now in the event that neither of these solutions solve the problem, which I hope you shouldn't have to do anymore; "Uninstall the Keyboard. To "Uninstall the "Keyboard," do the following: Shut-down (turn- off completely); disconnect all the Keyboard Devices that are connected to the Computer. Next, turn-on the Computer, and go back to the "Keyboard Properties," next, click on the "Change Settings" button, next click on the "Driver" button, and select the "Uninstall" button. Once that is finished, shut-down the Computer again. Now you want to "Reconnect" all the devices that were connected before, and "Turn-on" the Computer. "You will repeat exactly what you did from the start, this will "Re-install the Keyboard. "Restart the Computer again after all changes have been made; this will ensure the changes take effect properly. "Rating the solution will let me know if it worked; or you may need further assistance, thanks."

You have a rootkit virus, the only answer is reformat the drive and start fresh, sorry.
After a fresh install is done immediately install service(can be downloaded free from microsoft.com) pack 3, because sp2 is vulnerable to a host of trouble.

Windows won't recognize the HDD in my Dell XPS 400.


hawkdawg

In regards to installing your new harddrive if you are installed a SATA drive the issue is that not all versions of Windows has SATA drives native on the Windows install CD. So during the first part of the install you will need to press F6 to load the SATA drivers of the driver CD. If you do not have it you can download the drivers from support.dell.com

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Unable to reboot CPU


when its powering on let it get a little ways in then hold the power on off button until it just shuts off. Then boot it on and see if it gives you a safe boot option if it does select it. Then do a system restore to before this problem started. Hopefully this will restore the drivers.
