It could be the memory controller, which is a part of the motherboard. a memory controller error would appear as a ram issue, until you tried replacing the ram, and it still shows the error.

it is very easy to test ram. just take out all but 1 ram stick and try to boot. if it does not boot, try a different, single, ram stick. it is nearly impossible to have 2 bad sticks of ram, so if 1 of them doesnt work, then it is the motherboard's integrated memory controller.

Why wont my xps 700 boot?


Not sure on the beep side but this is what the lights code refer too.

Ensure that all hard drive and CD/DVD drive cables are properly connected to the system board.
If there is an error message on the screen identifying a problem with a device (such as the floppy drive or hard drive), check the device to make sure it is functioning properly.
If the operating system is attempting to boot from a device (such as the floppy drive or CD/DVD drive); check system setup to ensure the boot sequence is correct for the devices installed on your computer.
If the problem persists, contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell" in your Owner's Manual).

sounds like youv'e covered all the possibles i would. could be the boot files got corrupted or the monitor is bad(have you checked it with another pc?) check the motherboard for swollen capacitors(those barrell looking objects randomly scattered over board. if the tops that have little crosses on them (+) are popping up/out unlike others, then your board needs replacement or new pc. cannot fix those. happened to a friend of mine. would not boot up to show windows.

My Dell XPS 420 will not turn on. Power light shows a steady blue color. No diagnostic lights show up.


The RAM maybe faulty.
Try resetting the RAM modules to make sure it is seated correctly in the memory slot.
If the computer still does not boot up then the RAM maybe faulty. Remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them tested. If faulty then replace the RAM.
