Sounds like a bios related problem, can you try another XPS bios? Is that the bios that somebody made a bootcd of?

You used this bootcd? http://rapidshare.de/files/7554202/FDBOOTCDXPS.iso.html
EDIT You was connected with the 130W PSU when you did the bisoflashing? In the 7800 upgrade thread they advice so.

I'm not so sure that the PSU is damaged, seems to be an issue with the bios (i'm running the XPS a04 bios). We still havent determined that the XPS bios is completely compatible with the 9300 motherboard. I read elsewhere that people were having standby and harddrive issues after upgrading the bios to XPS....

I had the same problem as you. Unknown power adapter... yada yada..
I filed a paypal complaint, the seller didn't ever respond. I got my money back. And I got to keep the power adapter... though, it doesn't work. :-/

The ground prong is there for a reason, that's why many two prong adapters have a wire coming out of the ground plug so that you can attach it to something metal.
