Working on Your Computer
1
Before Working Inside Your Computer
Use the following safety guidelines to help protect your computer from potential damage and to help to ensure your
personal safety. Unless otherwise noted, each procedure included in this document assumes that the following
conditions exist:
•
You have read the safety information that shipped with your computer.
•
A component can be replaced or--if purchased separately--installed by performing the removal procedure in
reverse order.
WARNING: Before working inside your computer, read the safety information that shipped with your computer. For
additional safety best practices information, see the Regulatory Compliance Homepage at www.dell.com/
regulatory_compliance
CAUTION: Many repairs may only be done by a certified service technician. You should only perform
troubleshooting and simple repairs as authorized in your product documentation, or as directed by the online or
telephone service and support team. Damage due to servicing that is not authorized by Dell is not covered by your
warranty. Read and follow the safety instructions that came with the product.
CAUTION: To avoid electrostatic discharge, ground yourself by using a wrist grounding strap or by periodically
touching an unpainted metal surface, such as a connector on the back of the computer.
CAUTION: Handle components and cards with care. Do not touch the components or contacts on a card. Hold a
card by its edges or by its metal mounting bracket. Hold a component such as a processor by its edges, not by its
pins.
CAUTION: When you disconnect a cable, pull on its connector or on its pull-tab, not on the cable itself. Some
cables have connectors with locking tabs; if you are disconnecting this type of cable, press in on the locking tabs
before you disconnect the cable. As you pull connectors apart, keep them evenly aligned to avoid bending any
connector pins. Also, before you connect a cable, ensure that both connectors are correctly oriented and aligned.

Diagnostics
4
If you experience a problem with your computer, run the ePSA diagnostics before contacting Dell for technical
assistance. The purpose of running diagnostics is to test your computer's hardware without requiring additional
equipment or risking data loss. If you are unable to fix the problem yourself, service and support personnel can use the
diagnostics results to help you solve the problem.
NOTE: Before proceeding download and install the latest BIOS version from support.dell.com
Enhanced Pre-Boot System Assessment (ePSA) Diagnostics
The ePSA diagnostics (also known as system diagnostics) performs a complete check of your hardware. The ePSA is
embedded with the BIOS and is launched by the BIOS internally. The embedded system diagnostics provides a set of
options for particular devices or device groups allowing you to:
•
Run tests automatically or in an interactive mode
•
Repeat tests
•
Display or save test results
•
Run thorough tests to introduce additional test options to provide extra information about the failed device(s)
•
View status messages that inform you if tests are completed successfully
•
View error messages that inform you of problems encountered during testing
CAUTION: Use the system diagnostics to test only your computer. Using this program with other computers may
cause invalid results or error messages.
NOTE: Some tests for specific devices require user interaction. Always ensure that you are present at the
computer terminal when the diagnostic tests are performed.
1.
Power-on the computer.
2.
As the computer boots, press the <F12> key as the Dell logo appears.
3.
On the boot menu screen, select the Diagnostics option.
The Enhanced Pre-boot System Assessment window is displayed, listing all devices detected in the computer. The
diagnostics starts running the tests on all the detected devices.
4.
If you wish to run a diagnostic test on a specific device, press <Esc> and click Yes to stop the diagnostic test.
5.
Select the device from the left pane and click Run Tests.
6.
If there are any issues, error codes are displayed.
Note the error code and contact Dell.
Power Supply Built in Self-Test
This computer comes equipped with a power supply built in self-test (BIST) that helps in troubleshooting.
All power supply units include a self-test ability in an isolation mode. A test button and LED are on the top of the unit
where the power connector is located.
67
Customers can test the health of the power system by pressing the test button. The button is lit by a signal in the power
supply called Power_Good (PG). When the +3.3v, +5v, and +12v rails are up and within specification, the PG signal turns
on, lighting the self-test LED. By removing the cable harness in units that do not pass this test, you can isolate the
failure's cause to an attached device of the power supply. For example, if the self-test LED does not light when you press
the button, you can remove the connectors from the devices and tests again. If the PG LED now lights up, one of the
attached devices is shorted and holding down the power supply. If the LED does not light up, the power supply is
defective.
68
Troubleshooting Your Computer
5
You can troubleshoot your computer using indicators like Diagnostic Lights, Beep Codes, and Error Messages during the
operation of the computer.
Important Information
NOTE: Avoid using the touchscreen in dusty, hot, or humid environments.
NOTE: Sudden change in temperature may cause condensation on the inner surface of the glass screen, which will
disappear after a short time and does not affect normal usage.
Diagnostic Power LED Codes
The power LED states are shown in the following table.
NOTE: The power LED can only serve as an indicator of the progress through the POST process. These LEDs do not
indicate the problem that caused the POST routine to stop.
Power LED
Description
OFF
Power is off. LED is blank.
Blinking Amber
Initial state of LED at power up. Refer the following table for Blinking Amber Power LED
diagnostics suggestion and possible failures.
Solid Amber
Second state of the LED at power up. Indicates the POWER_GOOD signal is active.
Blinking White
System is in a low power state. Does not indicate a fault condition.
Solid White
The computer is in power-on state.
The power LED light blinking amber pattern will help you determine a few failures as shown below. The Amber LED
blinking pattern is as follows: the pattern is 2 or 3 blinks followed by a short pause then X number of blinks up to 7. The
repeated pattern has a long pause inserted in the middle. For example 2,3 = 2 amber blinks, short pause, 3 amber blinks
followed by long pause then repeats.
