Unplug the tower and press power button for 60 seconds, if this fails the motherboard should be suspect, check all plugin connections to the motherboard especially power supply connectors.

I have a Dell XPS 600 desktop computer. I cannot get the power to stay on. None of the diagnostic lights light up. I have checked all of the connections and everything is secure.


Here's what to try: Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the CPU and memory. You may leave the video connected to see what, if any, error message you might get.
You didn't say if you got any beeps on startup. They can tell you what might be the problem.
If this doesn't work, remove the memory modules. The power should stay on but you'll probably get either a steady beep or a bunch of little beeps. (I don't have the Dell error codes close at hand at the moment).
If this doesn't work, you have narrowed the problem to one of three things: The CPU, the motherboard, or the power supply.
You didn't mention just what happens when you turn it on--just that it won't stay on. Error messages are helpful if you get any on the screen as are any beep tones.

I have a Dell XPS 600 Desktop. I have a new HDD SATA. I installed the new HDD and I try install Windows XP by pressing F12 to boot from disk. It take me to a screen where it says, Press enter to install...


Don't press F12, that tells the Dell to restore Windows from a hidden partition located on the original hard drive. Since you are using a new drive, you need to boot from the Windows XP CD and follow the instruction to load the operating system.

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
Terry
