Question about Dell Computers & Internet
The story started when I got connected via RDP from my Laptop to my Desktop Dell XPS 700, I needed to reboot the Dektop in order to have some changes made (nothing outstanding and not related with dirvers), since I was connected via RDP I used command shutdown /r, after waiting some minutes I noticed I was not able to reach my desktop and since I was not physically near to the PC I just waited for next day to see what happened. Ok, when I checked my Desktop I saw my monitor showing nothing, when rebooting from the power button get no Bios screen. I thought it was a problem with my monitor but then I realize that I could not see my computer on the network so it was not starting correctly, At the beginning I did some troubleshoots for the Monitor, I connected the monitor to another PC and it worked fine, also I troubleshooted the Video Card and changed from one pci slot to another, nothing worked, I even tried several times pushing the power button for 10 seconds, disconnecting Power supply, etc. I did not get any beep or post number combination, just a black screen, after several tries I decided to follow some steps on Dell support webpage to reset BIOS by moving pwd jumper to the RTCRST. And after doing that I Started to receive the post LED's 123 and 2 beeps. I disconnected every usb, HDD, CD and DVD, Video Adapter Card, switched mem sticks and removed and swithched each dimm pair, I disconnected almost anything possible but the problem is still happening, The screen is still black and now I hear 2 beeps, which I really don't know what they mean. I've checked for the Beep error code guide but none is shorter than 3 beeps (if I'm understanding this ok).
Could be the cpu, its prolly the only thing you havent tested. or the power supply.
