    Hi Tphan and welcome to the TS Forum :wave:

    So you took the memory chip out whilst the board was live ? Oh dear :eek:, i'm really sorry to say this and its not what you want to hear but chances are that you have damaged the motherboard.:dead:.

    Your going to have to replace the motherboard to get it back and running again.

    Did you possibly buy the extended warranty from Dell?

    Look on their web page and follow the links for support in finding your model.
