Having problems with your Dell XPS 700 PC Desktop ?

My 700 will turn on sometimes an it sometimes won't then flashes amber i read that i should replace my power supp i took the side cover off but i dont see how to get it out there are 4 screws on back but there no room to work it out of cabinet an i dont know how to take off top please help...

Answers :

Ok the 4 screws on the back are easy but i think what your talking about is the processer heatsink and things of that sort all that can go in and out easily ,the memory chips just find the tabs on the side of them and gently push them outward and the memory should pop out.but when putting them back in use both hands and make sure the slots line up on the meory and the board, now the processer is hard to say im not sure what style processer heatsink you have that has to be removed ,but you can hook a volt tester to your main power supply plug to see if its putting out what its supposed to be if not you know thats your problem
hope this help,
