Question about Dell Vostro 200 PC Desktop

2 Answers

I have dell vostro 200 that run fine for 3 years, but the Computer did not boot up just days ago. The fan runs really loud, the lights are blinking on the front, nothing on monitor and it beeps 4 times then pauses and repeats the 4 beeps over and over. Any suggestions as to what this could be?

SOURCE: dell vostro 200 4 repeated beeps on start up

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
c

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

I have a dell Costco 1500 that wouldn't come on. I changed the battery but after a few Dave it quit working again. I messed with the ac adapter & got it going but it gets really hot.


If the laptop is running to hot, the problem is in the cooling fan and blocked heatsink ports. The computer must be dismantled to access the motherboard, remove fan and heatsink, use a can of compressed air and clear out all the ports and fan, next get rubbing alcohol and paper towel, remove thermal grease from the processor and heatsink, now apply a fresh thin layer to the processor and heatsink and assemble, this will cure most heat related issues.

My XPS 200 keeps shutting down and power light blinks


During when does your computer shutdown? Please check the diagnostic lights at the back as well which ones have light on it during the time it would shutdown.

Since you said that the light is blinking yellow it just says that your power supply is running outside its normal operating range. So most likely you would need a change of power supply. Maybe a higher wattage would be better.

Solid orange light on my vostro 200


If your fans come on full blast then you have a bad motherboard. If the amber light blinks, you have a bad power supply.
