XPS400 breakdown

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Whatisup guys,
Alright, I've got a friend with a DellXPS 400, He says the PC is about 2.5 years old. Just recently his PC stopped booting, he gets 2 short beeps at POST and nothing else. I suspect the motherboard or RAM, what do you guys think?

Thanks,
B-Dog

Find out which mobo, and use their support to identify what it is with the POST beeps.

I think he should carry it back to dell lol.

seriously. Whatever problem is causing this - is most likely hardware related.
And if we send him/you into the PC = no more warranty :\\

Does it still have its warranty btw?

Agreed, find out what the beep code is telling you.

I doubt it's under warranty any longer, he's looking into repairing it himself.

Anyone know which BIOS Dell uses? AMI, Phoenix, or Award? I'm thinking it's AMI.

AMI, seems to be the only one with a one-one beep code, and it means memory error or general hardware failure.
