Question about Dell XPS One All-in-One TV Desktop with Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E4500 - (PRODUCT) RED

My Dell XPS One keeps crashing

I've had a Dell XPS One for about six months. It began crashing occasionally not too long after I got it. Since then, it will be okay for about a month and then start crashing again. Now it has begun to crash during boot up or shortly after. I keep getting a blue screen that says incorrectable hardward problem. I ran a dell assist diagnostic and it said that it's likely a RAM problem. It said the analysis showed the the BIOS system does not match the specs for the CPU. This can occur when a newer processor is installed on an older system board or old BIOS. Can you tell me what I need to do? Thank you for your help.

    A Dell tech is coming tomorrow to replace the motherboard, the CPU, and the memory. Thanks for the advice though.

Go to dell website and download the newest firmware for the bios and for the ram problem if there are 2 ram cards turn it off and remove one reboot see if it crashes if it doesn't then remove the other one and reboot see if it crashes. Hope that helps.

First of all, if you've only had the system 6 months, it should be under warranty with Dell. So I'd contact Dell 1st before replacing any hardware on my own. You can chat with Dell tech support here:

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/chat/hardware_chat?c=us&l=en&s=gen

There is a BIOS revision you can download and install:

If you need to replace a RAM module, the instructions are here:

Straighten a paper clip and insert it into a tiny hole below the CD drive tray. Push the paper clip gently into this hole and the CD tray will pop out slightly. Pull the tray out to the fully opened position so you can remove the disc.

Freezing and crashing - dell xps m1530


contact Customer support first and have them help you diagnose it. If you just bought it, you shouldn't try to do anything too drastic. You might want to back up your files right now though because it might get worse or you might have to send it to Dell and they may send you a completely different laptop. Back up, call Dell.
