My dell xps 700 unbootable

Hello, one morning I'm having problems at startup, it starts again in two, I reinstall the latest version of bios (which was already installed) and the PC functioned normally throughout the day but the next day nothing ... I even attempted to clear cmos. fans turn on the tower is normally just nothing to the screen. 
bios rings 2 times and the numbers 1 2 3 are ON 

thank you in advance for those who can help me, sorry for English but I am french and I use a translator.

The error code you posted corresponds to component failure..
What you need to do is unhook the power cable from the tower n remove the memory , all the cards n the cd drive... now put the memory back in n start the system {without the cd drives or cards... except video card if u dont have onboard graphics... }. Now if the system starts then switch it off again n start connecting components one by one till you find the faulty component... if this method doesnt help then you better go ahead n call up the tech support n get a service technician

Dell xps 9100 constant beeps upon startup



Beep Codes
Your computer might emit a series of beeps
during start-up if the monitor cannot display
errors or problems. The following repetitive
beep codes help you troubleshoot problems
with your computer.
NOTE: To replace parts, see the Service
Manual on the Dell Support website at
support.dell.com.
One beep - BIOS ROM checksum failure;
possible motherboard failure
Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell" on page 53).
Two beeps - No RAM detected

Remove the memory modules, reinstall
one module and restart the computer. If
the computer starts normally, reinstall anadditional module. Continue until you have
identified a faulty module or reinstalled all
modules without an error.

If available, install memory modules of the
same type in your computer.

Three beeps - Possible motherboard failure
Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell' on page 53).
Four beeps - RAM read/write failure

Ensure that no special memory module/
memory connector placement requirements
exist (see the Service Manual on the Dell
Support website at support.dell.com).

Verify that the memory modules that you are
installing are compatible with your computer.

Five beeps - Real Time Clock failure
Replace the battery.
Six beeps - Video BIOS test failure

Cant instal win xp on dell xps 700 help pls


1.) Insert Bootable CD.
2.) if not booting up, go into the Bios and change the bootable device list to list the CD or DVD drive first
3.) Disk should boot, if not then you have a problem with your CD (try another) or the CD/DVD Drive is not working properly.

XPS Studio 13 Intagrated Mic not working


The vista drivers should have worked, since Windows 7 is a cleaned up version of Vista. If you know the manufacture of the mic, you can try searching for drivers on their site. You could try going into the BIOS during startup (usually hit F2 or DELETE) and run the setup defaults which loads all the drivers for the machine. This could be a bug in the RC also. Maybe try reinstalling the RC if the drivers still don't work. I hope this helped solve your problem.

Go to Dell support website and check for latest video, & audio drivers and BIOS.

Check back quarterly as Dell is quite good about rolling out updates on a regular basis.

Bios update can resolve lack of fan's control?


Probably not as you can only flash your BIOS from the manufacturer, so that is probably the latest version they produce since you got it recently. Under no conditions do I recommend trying to flash BIOS from someone other than the orignal manufacturer as any mistake will cause your computer to become unbootable.
