X300 SE 128MB P/N 113-A33406-100
any techos out there know how to restore pc after this error message? I changed the cmos battery
I am having the same error message. Just recently installed a new power supply and RAM to the system so I can upgrade the video card, and performance.
-Dell Dimension 4700 (Everything is factory stock, except for power supply and RAM)
-Power Supply: Logisys 550W Black
-RAM: 4 x 1GB Corsair XMS2
Get the X300 SE 128MB BIOS P/N 113-A33406-100 error. I just tried to reset the CMOS, but did not work. These are the steps I did:
1) Remove CMOS battery
2) Turn on computer
3) Turn switch computer off
4) Re-insert CMOS battery
5) Turn back on
This did not work and still got the same error message.
Update on the situation.
I read the manual for the Dell Dimension 4700 on how to properly reset the CMOS. I did what the manual said, but still getting the same error.
I have also read that it could be a RAM problem. Before installing the power supply I tested the RAM with the old power supply, and everything worked properly. With 4GB of RAM installed, dxdiag showed 3.3 GB of useable RAM.
I know that it is running Windows XP, but I don't know if any of the service packs have been installed on it.
After testing the RAM with the old power supply, I installed the new one. This is when I got the error message the first time. I tried to use the old power supply, and still got the same error message again.
This makes me think that I fried something... Is there a way I can test and see what is failing?
