Hi, Yesterday my computer locked up, and i had no other chioce than press the power off buttom, But now when i try to start it again, Nothing happens! the fans and light turn on, Awell the little light that shows my computer is working, but after a few seonds just when it usally about to load the bios, it hang again, or well, nothing happen.
Fans and light stays on, but my monitor reports "No input signal" Aswell the little flashing light that suppose to show it's working stays off.
I tryed with another card, becouse i have done servel thing to my other card, also it worked after. But no difference with the other card, only thing is that it says 3 fast light niose not getting metter.
So, if anyone have a idea of what to do i'm open to try it out..

Okay, i filled the list to good that i can, unfortly i see a problem, hehe becouse i don't know much about my motherboard. It's the XPs 630i standart, I can only tell that my chipset is Nvidia Nforce 650i SLI.
I can't even run a program to find out my motherboard, becouse my computer with that motherboard won't start..

Are you getting any beep codes and, if yes, how many beeps:http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps630i/en/OM/HTML/tools.htm#wp1094136

Here are the specs for your computer here:http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps630i/en/OM/HTML/specs.htm#wp1104354

1. Try unplugging computer from wall for 15 minutes or so the plugging back and try to boot.
2. Try clearing the cmos:http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps630i/en/OM/HTML/clearing.htm#wp1160397 and/or you might need to replace your cmos battery:http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xps630i/en/SM/HTML/coinbatt.htm#wp1180146

It's hard the first time. Here's some safety precautions to take:

Open the pc on a surface that is not carpet or cloth.

Touch the case before any computer part to ground yourself.

The diagram there shows where the jumper is. It will be a small piece of plastic over 2 of the 3 pins. Grab some needle nose pliers. Squeeze it just enough to pull it off.

Use a flashlight or a lamp to help see.

All you guys done it? it's not dangerous for the hardware itself? I might wait, and contact dell, because if dell force me to do it, my warrently is guarantee :)
If i do it without a dell guy told me too, it's no guaranteed :)

Most on here have done it, one time or another. And most on here build there own systems. And, just about everyone on here mods or experiments.

It is easy, maybe a bit scary or overwhelming at first, but the vendor gives you instructions, because they know stuff needs to be done by the consumer.

Just take your time and follow the manuals (instructions).

REMEMBER, SAFETY FIRST. It does contain electricity, unplug it.

Okay, thanks, But I will wait for dell to answear me just for the warrently,:shadedshu Then try it, just to see if there's any other way to try first that dell can come up with.
But, I will try it out, that's for sure. :)

Edit: If i hold one hand on the case, there won't be any problem with electricity, aswell you said unplug it, unplug the little battery in the motherboard?
