this computer was not well kept it was however sitting in one spot for quite some time. Does your Dell have the four green/yellow LEDs on the I/O panel like most non-budget Dells from the last decade?

Don't you have a long enough warranty to get this replaced by Dell? I would try another supply before replacing the motherboard Dec 18, 2009 #10 kimsland Ex-TechSpotter Posts: 14,524 cloys1 said: ↑ Do you know what size power supply Dell usually put Can anyone help?
You might want to remove the old one, and install a new one with your recovery disk set. Electrolytic capacitors fail to an open circuit state so there isn't a problem leaving the dead one there. and the boards on eBay are still too high to justify the cost. In the first picture, you can see about 1 inch of black along the bottom of the case.
After a quick Google search, found your manual, and your system does have the lights. Thanks May 7, 2010 #16 Tmagic650 TS Ambassador Posts: 17,244 +235 What kind of meter did you use? Heat sink and Fans seem to be in the right place and secured...I boot it up over and over to see if I can get lucky but nothing happens.. I have purchased a refurbished motherboard and will replace it as soon as I receive it.
Ok for about a year now, after I've put on my PC, I would always have to restart it straight away. Sign In Upload Page of 166 Go Download Table of ContentsContents TroubleshootingTroublesh.. Ads are the only way to keep ManualsLib FREE and keep it growing. Otherwise, but a new power supply...

I had remove and reseated the memory, graphic and sound card. No, that model should not normally give you beeps or sounds other than the whirring of the CPU cooler fan and the power supply fan.
You think I will need to replace the PSU? check my blog If so, observe those and you can match the pattern with a code in the service manual for your Dell. The XPS should boot up for a few seconds before turning itself off. May 20, 2008 #24 as400k TS Rookie And yes, a brand new PSU didn't do anything for me, so that can be ruled out.
anything over 400 to 500 watts from any good supplier such as Directron, NewEgg, ZipZoomFly, Frys, Tech Depot, and so on. My best guess is that Maxtor is bad. The only cure is to replace the motherboard, and that is as much as $140 on ebay... this content but the rest of the drive can still be used to rescue data.
The odds of your motherboard spontaneously being defective and believing that something is overheating when there isn't is pretty slim. and so on... But now when I put the pc on.

The combined power may be only 160 watts of needed power for converting the household current down to 20 amps or so... However, that drive in that model, when failing, makes a clicking noise that is exactly like a fan out of balance. A replacement is easy to install with the disc set that came with your computer. You have an 70% chance that the data can be retrieved using an adapter in a desktop computer, or have someone rescue it for you.
You haven't answered whether or not anything sounds like it's grinding or if it's just that the fans are spinning at a higher RPM. When I restarted my computer it wouldn't boot back up. Any help would be great. A western digital 80 GB hard drive is 41.99 plus shipping at Directron, Zipzoomfly, New Egg, and Tiger Direct.
The screen had a signal it was just black. If the fan that gets loud is pushing air through the power supply, then that is probably your problem.
