    that's unfortunate...perhaps you'll consider getting an extended warranty..look around on the net for one.

Have an xps 200, monitor suddenly went black the other day in the middle of use. Noticed the power light had gone from green to amber. When I push button on monitor says it is in power save mode, to move...


Try connecting the monitor to a friend's computer. If you get some sort of a display it's not the problem. When you say that the computer makes a new noise like the fans are spinning fast, you might have an issue with the video card , motherboard, or power supply.

Dell xps laptop lcd screen black


Hi,

If you have an external monitor, try connecting the laptop to it, then toggle FN+F8 to project display from lalaptop to external monitor.

If the external monitor does not have a display aswell (totally blank) , then its a problem with the video card.

You can also run an LCD Bist test by turning off the system , then while the system is turned off press D + power , If you dont hear a beep but no display at all, then its an LCD problem.


Hope this helps

Thanks

Dell xps demension. When I turn on the power botton fan comes on at a really fast speed but nothing else comes on. Doesn't load anything??


A cool heatsink points to a CPU failure, as the CPU is not processing data. Replacing the CPU at first would eliminate this, however, the CPU is unlikely to fail first unless it had been severely overheated, more likely that the board has developed a fault.

If you are however getting no beeps on start up, this does look like the CPU is the culprit

Hp pavillion 533w wont boot up green light on front comes on but thats it no fans coming on either


Hi ,

If the green light comes on on the front panel then it means the fan is spinning so what u can do is a self test for the monitor.Disconnect the vga cable from the back panel of the computer tower and then check if there is a message displayed on the monitor that should say check video signal or no inoput signal ,if there is no such message displayed then it means the monitor is a fault .If not then reset the memory card and then check .U can also run a test for the motherboard to do this u will have to remove the memory card and then turn the computer on if u hear long beeping noise it means the motherboard is fine .If u dont hear any sound then the mother board needs to be repaired or replaced...

all the best

When pluged into outlet fans spins and doesnt stop, wont boot


Fan spinning hard is usually a CPU issue.
If you've made any hardware changes to your computer, undo them. This happened to me when I was trying to upgrade my Processor (CPU) and I had the wrong kind.

Montior wont turn on


Solid Amber Power LED is indicative of a Motherboard failure. Replace the motherboard.

The GX280 is one of many motherboards made during that time period that may have had capacitors that could fail due to a manufacturing defect if the capacitor. Check the capacitors on the motherboard to see if the tops are popped (there is a X engraved across the top of each capacitor, it the X is open, then the capacitor is bad.)

Dell XPS 400 tower does not power up monitor?


The “self test” on the monitor displays when not plugged into a computer. This means that it’s working. The LED error code 2 and 4 means the video subsystem has a problem. Either your video card is bad or bad memory module. Try reseating video card and/or memory.
