Having problems with your Dell XPS 200 PC Desktop ?

Kinda the same thing

\015 My dads computer was working just yesterday and my mom cleaned up there room. My dad told me he turned it off cause he wasn't on it. I went to play Gmod this morning and it wont turn on. I took off the casing and looked around nothing looked misplaced or unhooked from what I saw I turn it on and the fans start up for a sec then i hear a deep pitch beep. (kinda sounds like my dad's computer is giving me an Epic Fail sound D: Like I Failed at turning it on or something I don't know )An then it turns it self off all in a sec. I checked the hard drive and it seems ok. I don't know if its the power supply or what. Could be the motherboard but it was working fine yesterday... Or... My mom could have hit it with the shampooer when she was cleaning ther carpets...She dose have quite an arm >_>Any questions on this please? If my problem can be solved mabey yours can too?\015

Answers :

Dear Dem0nf0x,
From the scenario you have mentioned .. sounds to me as if its a problem with the graphics card connection or the RAM card.. I would suggest you to do the following:
  1. Remove the power cable from the back of the tower/CPU
  2. \015\012
  3. Press and hold the power button on the CPU with power cord remove... This would drain any components that might still be charged inside the CPU.
  4. \015\012
  5. Open the chassis and re-seat the RAM cards and the graphics card properly.
  6. \015\012
  7. Now close the chassis and connect the video connector properly to the CPU and make sure that you fasten the two screws that are given on the connector to make it secure.
  8. \015\012
  9. Now connect the other peripherals and the power on the CPU.
Do the above and let me know if that works... It should be something to do with loose contact.
If the above doesn't resolve the issue then kindly let me know the beep pattern and I would assist you ahead.

Unplug the computer first then gently pull off the power cable on the motherboard, wait about 15 seconds, then plug it back it. Plug back in the power cable and see if the computer will fire up. While you are at it, use a dust cleaner and spray out the computer, power supply and fans.

What you are doing is re-seating the power cable. Possibly there was a spark when your mom was cleaning the room. I have know this problem before and most have fixed themselves by doing this.
