Question about Dell XPS™ 600 PC Desktop
I have a Dell XPS 600
sli - 7800gtx, 2gb ram..etc.
When turning the main power on the comp will boot up and start running, then makes all the fans will run (loud) and the screen will turn to standby after 2 secs.
The diagnostic light is on 4, cant find anything on what it means..
I have disconnected and tested everything..works fine on other systems.
Any ideas..i need to try and get this fixed asap for coursework..more info can be given
Sounds to me like the fan is on the way out ,and if the cpu gets too hot the pc will shut down.
check that the fan is not obstructed,clean it if it is full of dust, replace it if it is not working as it should.
also listen to the power supply fan, is it working ok,this could cause the same type of problem but for different reasons.

I have the same problem with my Dell XPS 600. i took it to a PC shop and they tlod me it was the mother board. I called dell and they told me it would be $280 for a new mother board. this happend 1 month after the warenty exired. I wish i could buy my own now mother board from a 3rd party vendor. Does any one know where i can get one or does it have to be the dell one.?

You can get these for $159 here. A new motherboard is the common solution to diagnostic light #4 with orange power button (no boot).
