Having problems with your Dell XPS 730 Desktop Computer ?

Dell XPS 730 no video, not bios, fan running hard

\015 I have a Dell XPS 730 that have had for 8 months. It has worked pretty well for me exept for this last weekend. while the computer was on, I disconnected the internet on the main level of the house and when I went downstairs to the computer, it was froze up. This has happened a few times, so I just shut it off from the front and when turned it back on the same way it sounded like it was about to take off, the fan was so loud. I restarted it a few times becuase nothing would come up on my monitor. I unplugged a few things, still not luck. I finlly got a hold of Dell and they would even talk to me because I guess I dont have any warranty becuase I bought it off of ebay from a company, that apparently buys them, uses them for awhile and sells them before the warranty is up. Anyway, that is my own fault. I took just about everything out..video cards, memory ect, but still dont have anything showing on the monitor nor any bios. What now? how do I know that the mother board went bad? was it because I shut it down while it was froze up? Any help would be greatly appriciated!! thanks\015

Answers :

Fist touching anything on the motherboard without a anti-static strap can kill the motherboard.

The fan running at full speed is no big deal. If you took out the video card
how do you expect to see anything on the monitor.

You need to plug the monitor you have into a working computer, this will rule out the monitor. If the monitor died, you did all this for nothing.

Now unless the motherboard has onboard video you have to put the card back in, if it does have onboard, even without the drivers installed you still see the post, because windows will let it run at post, and with the video card, it will still show post without drivers.

Do this,check monitor, try both ports and post back and tell us whats
going on.
