Open the case and look carefully for blown up capacitors. Specially the ones near the Processor. Dell has experienced many problems with faulty capacitors in their motherboards.

To Identify a blown up capacitor look for brown spill residue at top of the capacitor. Also if they are not completely flat at the top, they are faulty capacitors.

If you are not familiar with electronics compoments any friend with some experiece can help you.

Please let me know your progress.

Good Luck!!

Dell studio XPS 7100 tower. the power light is orange and it wont start

The amber light can mean that the power supply isn't providing enough power to the system board or that the system board (or the CPU on the board) isn't working.

Since your fans are working, your power supply hasn't completely failed and the board is providing power to the system fans. Thus, either the power supply is giving limited power, your CPU has failed or the motherboard isn't talking to the CPU anymore. (The BIOS is only accessible when the CPU is operational.) I'd first try a new power supply. Make sure to get one that has at least the same power rating as the original, matches the wiring in your case and will fit in your case. (Note: you need to be careful. 1) Some Dell systems use a proprietary power supply (shape and wiring). 2) Many current power supplies are rated by their peak power output, not their stable power output. You want to match or exceed the stable power output of the current power supply.)

If the power supply doesn't solve the problem, I suggest getting a new computer is better than a new CPU or motherboard. (The Dell Studio XPS 7100 was released in 2010.) Replacing the CPU or the motherboard makes your computer a new machine to Microsoft and you may have trouble getting a working license. (You'd have to call Microsoft for activation and they probably will want to charge you for a new license.) Take your hard drive out of the current machine to get your data from it. You can put the drive inside another desktop with SATA ports, use an external drive enclosure (3.5") or SATA drive dock, or a USB to SATA drive adapter.

I hope this helps.

Dell XPS runs for approx 15 min then powers off

sounds like a heat issue, most processors today come with a fail safe, at a predetermined temp they will shut the pc down with little to no warning unless you have a warning system installed, now as to what causing this, yes it could be your fan, turn your pc on and check to see if the fan is spinning, if not then it is either broken, jammed or unplugged from the mother board, if you have a can of air handy i suggest you try blowing any debris and dust out of the fan, if it is spinning then you have a airflow issue or your cpu fan has done one of two things, one, stopped working or has come unattached from your cpu, if it has come unattached from your CPU then you will need to re-seat it, but make sure you apply some thermal paste before you do so, if you do not have any paste, radio shack or your nearest pc shop will, apply a small amount of paste (about the size of a dime) to the cpu, reseat the fan, and that should help, also be sure to blow out the dust from your heat syncs, hope this helped

XPS 600 serious Boot up Problems!

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.

good luck
