    I have an old Inspiron 5150 laptop (lovingly referred to as the doorstop) that fried 3 motherboards while under warranty; and since the warranty expired has just been collecting dust after the most recent failure (using e1705 now).

  • Forum Reply: Re: Dimension 8250 - Boots to Black Screen/Blinking Cursor

    I had the same problem with my mothers 8250. It went thru the Dell screen and then got the black screen and blinking cursor. I tried to boot from a Windows ERD and still got the blinking cursor. I thought the motherboard was bad, but the 4 status lights were all green. I removed the memory and got beep...
  • Forum Reply: Re: XPS 720 H2C - blue screen error 0x000000EA

    Your motherboard is overheating where the two heatsinks are. Especially right by the graphics cards, that heatsink there. Find some fans and cool it down then see what happens. Let me know K?
  • Forum Reply: Re: XPS 730/ Getting Alert "Motherboard USB Not Connected"

    Hello Darrell, Thanks for the info, ran the diagnostics test and no errors. I got tired of hitting the F1 key so I went into BIOS and turned off alerts for now.

  • Forum Thread: Looking for a different motherboard for XPS 700

    I have an old XPS 700 that is most definitely out of warranty and the motherboard has died. Since the case and everything else in it is perfectly fine, I thought that now would be a good time to upgrade and get a better board. I did contact Dell and found out that I can upgrade to an XPS720 through them...
  • Forum Reply: Re: E521 Motherboard Replacement Options

    As far as what you already have: 5600+ and 4gb of ram; then that's the best you can go (with stock heat sink). You can go up to the 89 watt 5800+, 6000+ and so on but, you will need a special aftermarket heatsink and fan. There is one that fits the e521 motherboard and uses the stock hardware...
  • Forum Thread: optiplex 740 - AMD

    I'm getting conflicting reports and even when chatting with a Dell tech, it didn't really answer any of my questions. I do not know if it is the enhanced version of the 740 or regular Optiplex 740. It does have the - YP806 motherboard. I was under the assumption that this was a 939 socket but...
  • Forum Thread: Swap out Dimension 2400 Mobo

    I've got a Dimension 2400 I got back on '04. The girl's been good to me; I've taken good care of it, and in return I've gotten no issues. I've upgraded it with a Pentium 4, more memory, hard disks, and an NVidia Geforce FX 5500. However, it's dated horribly. While it runs...

This device is situated under the heatsink-connector on the motherboard en is very delicate. Who has got this for...
  • Forum Thread: DIMENSION 8400 HAS FLATLINED! – Mobo, PSU, or Power On/Off Switch??

    I have been reading numerous posts here about various problems with 8400s, and many, many responses/answers (from prolific posters such as Bev, Robin, etc.), but I have yet to find any with the same symptoms I am experiencing – or, I should say, have experienced. For the last six-months-to...
