Dell XPS 200

I am unable to turn my computer on. There is absolutely nothing happening When I turn on the computer (by pressing in a button), the monitor will react with a green light on for 2 seconds and then the green light is off. No lights to indicate the computer of disk drive are on.

    I started having trouble turning on my XPS 200 recently. Now it only starts if I place my right index finger in the slot behind the on/off button and use my left index finger to push the button from the front. The combination of pushing the button between two fingers somehow puts more pressure on it. It's a pain, but it works, at least until I get rid of this hard drive and buy something other than Dell. The noise level is unbearable too.

I recently had a problem turning on my XPS 200. Then I fixed it by placing my right index finger in the slot and behind the on/off button. Then used my left index finger to push the on/off button from the front. Pushing the button from the front against the finger from behind created enough pressure to turn the machine on. Sometimes I have to push the button from behind to the front and vice-versa to get the computer to turn on. It's a lot more work, but will have to do until I get a new hard drive, preferably not Dell. The hard drive is making a lot of noise and recently a CD got stuck in the CD slot and wouldn't come out until I rebooted.

Is the amber light blinking? Indicates PS not operating within specs. You can look at replacing the PS (~$79-99). GL

Try connecting the monitor to a friend's computer. If you get some sort of a display it's not the problem. When you say that the computer makes a new noise like the fans are spinning fast, you might have an issue with the video card , motherboard, or power supply.

try and check your ram. I have had the same problem with a toshiba laptop and that was my problem. If you have 2 sticks try taking one out and booting up. if the same thing happens replace the ram and try again. and if both the memory sticks dont work in one slot try the second memory slot. Hope this helps.

My daughters xps 200 won't start, she presses the button and nothing. She has checked the surge protector that it is pluged into and it is OK... is there a reset button is there was a power surge??


most surge protectors have some sort of on/off switch and a reset button. If there was a surge then you would need to pres the reset button to get the surge protector to function again. If there was no surge then try using the on/off switch on the surge protector to see if that helps. Also try simply unplugging the power cord from the back of the desktop while the computer is turned off. This will sometime also help.

No response when i turn xps on.


the monitor may have been toggled off.... usually this is a function key and another key at the same time. examine the keys for one that looks like a monitor unless you have the manual... it will tell you there how to change it.

Dead pc


try to remove all external device connected to your computer. just leave the keyboad, mouse and monitor connected.
restart computer.
if still a blank screen
remove everything connected to your computer (mouse kyeboard and monitor) restart if nothing happens
open your computer and remove all devices (hard drive, optical drives, memory... restart,,, you should be hearing beeping sounds indicating motherboard is looking for memory. try putting back 1 memory at a time and checking all mem slot. to identify if one of the memory could be causing the blank screen. if both memory will not work try to use known good working memory. if you dont get to hear the beeping sound using a known good working memory. your memory is the problem.
