Question about Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop

3 Answers

Kinda the same thing

My dads computer was working just yesterday and my mom cleaned up there room. My dad told me he turned it off cause he wasn't on it. I went to play Gmod this morning and it wont turn on. I took off the casing and looked around nothing looked misplaced or unhooked from what I saw I turn it on and the fans start up for a sec then i hear a deep pitch beep.

(kinda sounds like my dad's computer is giving me an Epic Fail sound D: Like I Failed at turning it on or something I don't know )

An then it turns it self off all in a sec. I checked the hard drive and it seems ok. I don't know if its the power supply or what. Could be the motherboard but it was working fine yesterday... Or... My mom could have hit it with the shampooer when she was cleaning ther carpets...She dose have quite an arm >_>

Any questions on this please? If my problem can be solved mabey yours can too?

Dear Dem0nf0x,
From the scenario you have mentioned .. sounds to me as if its a problem with the graphics card connection or the RAM card.. I would suggest you to do the following:

  1. Remove the power cable from the back of the tower/CPU
  2. Press and hold the power button on the CPU with power cord remove... This would drain any components that might still be charged inside the CPU.
  3. Open the chassis and re-seat the RAM cards and the graphics card properly.
  4. Now close the chassis and connect the video connector properly to the CPU and make sure that you fasten the two screws that are given on the connector to make it secure.
  5. Now connect the other peripherals and the power on the CPU.
Do the above and let me know if that works... It should be something to do with loose contact.
If the above doesn't resolve the issue then kindly let me know the beep pattern and I would assist you ahead.

Regards,
Srinivas.

Unplug the computer first then gently pull off the power cable on the motherboard, wait about 15 seconds, then plug it back it. Plug back in the power cable and see if the computer will fire up. While you are at it, use a dust cleaner and spray out the computer, power supply and fans.

What you are doing is re-seating the power cable. Possibly there was a spark when your mom was cleaning the room. I have know this problem before and most have fixed themselves by doing this.

BorrowR50from mom and R50fromdad=R100 PayR97forT-shirt = R3. Give Mom R1, gave dad R1 back and I kept R1. Still owns Mom R49 and Dad R49. But R49 + R49 = R98 plus my R1 = R99. Where is the other R1???


why would you add your R1 but subtract their R1 ?
You state R50 minus R1 comes to R49 for both and then you add your R1 ?
So if you gave your R1 to Mum and Dad you would subtract 0.50 from what you owe them .
Being 48.5 plus 48.5 and this equals R47
So the R1 is in your pocket as with a credit account it works opposite to a debit account.

In a credit account payments in are subtracted (basic accounting )
Withdrawals are added to account balance.
It is opposite to a savings account

If I saw a shirt worth $97 and I didn't have the money for it I asked mom to give me $50 and my dad to give me $50 so I have a total of $100 so I bought the shirt and i had $3 left.I went home to give my...


The extra dollar is still in your pocket, you only gave a total of $2.00 back but you got $3.00 back from the store when you gave them the $100.00
That plus the fact that the problem didn't have anything to do with motherboards.

88 jeep cherokee. Auto Window won't go up,Single mom needs help!


Mine has the same problem. I tapped lightly on the motor, which is inside the door panel directly below the arm rest-door handle. It went up ok. I was told by a friend this morning you can take the electric motor out, open it and clean the brushes inside and it would work like new. I am in the process of doing that now.

Cannot print pdf


Can you printer other kinds of documents aside of PDF?
Maybe you have something in the PDF that is causing an issue with the printer. Will the PDFs print on you mom's older printer?

Type of document usually doesn't have any bearing.

An incorrect driver perhaps. Go to Canon's website and locate the latest driver and any updates for your model.
