Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes P

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

Always eliminate the most obvious possibilities first.
Make sure it's plugged in to a working outlet in the wall.
Make sure that the switch on the back of the power supply is set to 110 and not 220.
If neither of those things fix the problem, we're going to need a bit more information about what else you've tried to do to fix the problem to troubleshoot further.

My Dell XPS 730 needed a new CMOS battery I changed this but now it wont post get no beep errors and it doesn't get to the DELL screen. There is power everything lights up and fans start going but no...

I believe you have used the wrong type of CMOS battery. Try putting the old one back in and see if it will boot. If not the CMOS NAND chip may be broken. If this is the case contact Dell and order a new one.

My computer makes a low beeping sound/alarm in the back and it won't talk to the monitor??? monitor says it isn't getting any info from the computer and then shuts down to a yellow light.

It sounds like either the motherboard has token some damage or your graphics card has.

If it is your motherboard, which can be either the board itself or the graphics chipset built into the motherboard, then your only option would be to replace the motherboard.

If that dell came with a seperate graphics card, then youn will have to replace the graphics card.

There is also the possibility that you have both the built in and seperate graphics card, and someone put the vga or dmi plug into the wrong slot.

These are the most likely culprits, but it could be something else, like ram having gone bad.

If you decide to go into your computer, make sure to remove the power cord, put on or buy a wrist strap and plug it into a grounded outlet, and push the power a couple of times after removing the plug to draw out all remaining power.

Typically, the problem would be memory or operating system.

First, reseat (remove and reinsert) the memory and reboot. If still a problem, and you have more than one module, insert one at a time and reboot to see if problem resolved.

If not, press F8 repeatedly to go into Safe Mode. Find System Restore and choose an earlier date when your system worked. Please not that System Restore will restore your data (documents, etc.) to an earlier time.

Hope this helps.
