Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Can't turn on

My Dell XPS 400 just completely turned off on it's own. The light on the power button was just blinking orange and it would not turn back on. A week later I tried the power button and it turned on. I normally leave my computer on and it just hibernates. About a week after it turned back on it just shut off and I can't turn it back on anymore. There isn't even a blinking orange light anymore. It's like the computer is just dead. Is this a power supply issue? Please help.

    That is what I was thinking too but I'm not very good with computers so I thought I'd ask. Your quick response is much appreciated

Dell xps touch sreen just blinking blue light but blank screen


Sounds like it went to sleep due to low battery power. May be time for a new battery if it isn't holding charge well.

Plug it into the wall and push the power button once. It may come back on. If not...

Hold the power button down until the machine shuts off completely. If that doesn't work, remove the battery.

Dell XPS400 No Start!!


If you fan isn't turning like it should, it is definitely a power supply issue. Go out and purchase a power supply with 250-300 watts...thats a good standard wattage!!
