My Dell XPS-M1530's 90W-AC Adapter beeps and doesn't work

My Dell XPS-M1530's 90W-AC Adapter gives a beeping sound from inside and does not give an ouput. It used to work after tapping on the sides, for a while. Now that it only beeps and not works I cut the enclosure open (since it is ultrasound sealed) only to find that the +VCC and Ground lines are short! Now I would have suspected a short capacitor but the resistance drops to almost 0.2ohms from 7ohms within 3 seconds. A normal capacitor would have shown the opposite of this response (increase in resistance with time). Is this a common problem with Dell adapter? Since I am no electronics expert, i couldn't go any further. Please advice

Dell Inspiron N5010 4 beep error


This may help. The 4 beep code error in Dell Inspiron N5010 mean Memory read / write failure. Try draining the residual charge and check if you are able to boot. Here are the steps:
  • Disconnect any external peripherals (flash drives, printers, external hard drives) from the computer including the battery and AC Adapter.
  • Press and hold the power button for 20 seconds.
  • Reconnect the battery and the AC Adapter. Try to restart the computer and check.
Please make sure that the memory modules are firmly reseated and there is no dust accumulated on the memory slot on motherboard.

Possible faults:
1.The battery has no power.
2. AC adapter loses energy (need test it)
Remove the battery and turn laptop directly from AC adapter. OR, try to turn the battery directly without AC adapter.
if the signals are repeated then most likely have to replace the AC ADAPTERghj,

Blinking yellow light on xps200. changed power supply. still blinking yellow


A blinking yellow light means that there is something wrong with the motherboard, if not the motherboard itself it will be either the RAM, wiring connections, bad processor or it may need a fresh coat of thermal paste on the processor itself. With Dells, its pretty easy to find out. Start the pc and You will hear some beeps count the beeps. ex:beep.beep...beep.beep which gives You a code this one being 22. Once You get the code go to Dell support and look up service code and it will tell You what the problem is. Good Luck.

I have a Dell XPS 600 desktop computer. I cannot get the power to stay on. None of the diagnostic lights light up. I have checked all of the connections and everything is secure.


Here's what to try: Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and memory. You may leave the video connected to see what, if any, error message you might get.
You didn't say if you got any beeps on startup. They can tell you what might be the problem.
If this doesn't work, remove the memory modules. The power should stay on but you'll probably get either a steady beep or a bunch of little beeps. (I don't have the Dell error codes close at hand at the moment).
If this doesn't work, you have narrowed the problem to one of three things: The CPU, the motherboard, or the power supply.
You didn't mention just what happens when you turn it on--just that it won't stay on. Error messages are helpful if you get any on the screen as are any beep tones.

E6500 making a beeping noise


Does beeping noise happened before turning on laptop? If yes unplug the laptop from the AC Adapter. Just leave AC Adapter ON and connected to the power outlet. Check if AC Adapter is the one making beeping noise. Note: This is an issue with dell AC Adapter laptops
If no beeping noise in AC Adapter then proceed checking it from the laptop. Does beeping noise happened immediately when laptop is turned on? If yes then it might be laptop's hard drive creating the sound. Try to check the BIOS in your laptop under the category performance if the HDD Acoustic is ON either in Normal or Performance. Note: When laptop is in performance the hard drive makes noise due to its speed, this is normal if BIOS HDD Acoustic mode is ON to performance.
If the noise only happens when sometime while working on the laptop, this might be cause by the laptop fan. This also happens after turning on the laptop fan my have dirt and dust, please do check.
If fan was cleaned, HDD performance was checked and AC adapter was checked then, carefully sense if noise is coming from the internal speakers.
Download the latest BIOS update for your laptop then flash the BIOS. Make sure battery and AC adapter are connected when doing these.

Dell XPS 600 beeping noice


there are 2 things that can cause that, memory failure, or mother board, cheeper route to go would be replace your memory first, and see if that corrects the problem, if not then, check anything new you installed inside such as video card, lan cards, of something like that, if that doesn't work you need to have it looked at and possibly the mother board replaced,
