Q: I have a Dell XPS 400 that is freezing up and then emits a long solid beep. My troubleshooting – potential over heating – cleaned computer, changed main front fan, all fans working. Is overheating the only thing that can cause this? freeze with long beep. What else can I do?

    Check your diagnostic lights, as well as this beep code list for your dell computer and see if any of it helps you out.

    If you’re still having a problem after that I suggest you check with Dell.
