Question about Dell XPS 400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

We have a Dell XPS 400. Last week the power went off at the house like it has 20-30 times over the last few years. When it happens the computer reboots itself when the power comes on. Well this time it didn't. All I get is a blinking amber power button. I have held the power button for a complete shut down and the system shuts off. When I reboot all I get is a blinking amber power button. I have unplugged it and rebooted that way same result. Please tell me what to do to get it to boot up again. Sincerly, Clark

I have a Dell XPS and we recently moved from LA to MS. We unplugged system and then a few weeks later when we went to set it back up in the new house all we get when we turn on the system is the following...


Hello,
I suggest that you reseat the memory sticks on your desktop. Most likely one or more of the memory stick is bad. If you have more than 2 memory stick, try booting up your computer in pairs until you have isolated which memory stick is causing the problem.
Hope this helps....

10 year old Seiko Kinetic (model5M62-0B00) blue face. Last week stopped and after some shaking started again but seconds moved in 2 sec intervals for a few hours. Went OK for a week and again last night...


After 10 years it will be likely that the Kinetic capacitor will need upgrading. Your watch is designed to tick in two second intervals to tell you the power is very low. The power button will work again when it has some power to show. Yorkshire Watches www,yorkshirewatches.co.uk can do the upgrade for you if your in the UK. Give them a ring.

Dell XPS 730 no video, not bios, fan running hard


Fist touching anything on the motherboard without a anti-static strap can kill the motherboard.

The fan running at full speed is no big deal. If you took out the video card
how do you expect to see anything on the monitor.

You need to plug the monitor you have into a working computer, this will rule out the monitor. If the monitor died, you did all this for nothing.

Now unless the motherboard has onboard video you have to put the card back in, if it does have onboard, even without the drivers installed you still see the post, because windows will let it run at post, and with the video card, it will still show post without drivers.

Do this,check monitor, try both ports and post back and tell us whats
going on.

NO VIDEO COMES TO THE MONITER, THE MONITER WORKS WITH OTHER COMPUTERS, ICHANGED THE VIDEO CARD AND STILL NO RESULTS , ALSO THERE IS A LONG BEEPING NOISES THREE TO FOUR TIMES AS I TURN THE POWER BUTTON ON...


It sounds as if your on-board graphics has stopped working. If you have a graphics card to try installing it. That may solve your problem. If not you will have to contact Dell about a motherboard replacement. the last time I looked at a Dell XPS system you can't install a retail motherboard in it.

Need drivers to run windows 98se on dell xps m140


Microsoft (and Dell) stopped supporting Windows 98 a few years ago -- it lasted for over TEN years! So, it is *NOT* likely that you will find drivers for any computer that was "designed for Windows 2000" or "designed for Windows XP" or "designed for Vista".

So, in general, it is a _bad_ idea to connect any computer running Windows 98 to the Internet -- Microsoft has issued many "security-fixes" in the 4 years after they stopped supporting Windows 98 and Windows ME.

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.

Compaq Presario R4000 Notebook won't boot


Seem to be a problem with your power switch doing malfunction or bad motherboard connector or your computer has been setting at hibernate mode. Check those settings going to >> Start >> Control Panel >> Power Options..........Set your droplist to "never: and also UNCHECK the hibernate mode.

Another tip, take out the battery, and see what happen (only connected with AC)
