Hi folks,, first off im not a Big Fan Dell Products.
I aquired an XPS 420 for the CPU alone,, i was going to swap the Pentium D into it from my wifes macheine.
when to my Shegrin the XPS would no longer boot.
I inspected the Motherboard and found "Bloated" Capps.
so i purchased a referb from ebay,
now here's the problem. I received the MOBO and inspected it and it's perfect.
The XPS Still wont boot.
This is what i have figgerd out,,
The power switch is steady Amber,, the CPU Fan goes full speed and stays thare,, my GPU Fan spinns up,, and i get NO Diag lights, and last of all it wont boot with the Original CPU either.
I hope i made enough sence for you guys
