Got a small problem with a computer..
Wife was using the computer when it suddenly froze. She shut it down, and tried to reboot. That's when the trouble began..
The lights would come on, the fans would spin (case fan, cpu fan, power supply fan, video card fan). The fans actually go crazy, spinning at full force.
There is no beep however, and no video.
I had her remove all the ram, and try to start the computer. The computer beeps every few seconds.
She also unplugged everything on the outside.
I also had her remove the BOIS battery for 1 minute, and replace it.
She also checked all the cables and everything. They are all secure.
The keyboard and mouse don't receive power. (No lights)
The computer was dusted out, though it was already pretty clean to begin with.
She isn't comfortable with unplugging everything on the inside. And I can't help her with that, since she is visiting with her dad out of town.
No I assume the motherboard is fine. It beeps when there is no ram, so I'm hoping that's a good sign.
My thought is the power supply is screwing up, but they don't have an extra one to test it with. And before they have to spend some $80 for a power supply (Current one is 750W), I was hoping someone else would have some other suggestions for them to try, to confirm that it is a power supply.
The model is https://en.wikipedia...ell_XPS#XPS_630 if that helps any.
Thanks for any help
