Pretty sure mine's still a ram issue though myself.
Going through Dell's troubleshooting, they had me remove all the peripherals (HD, Memory, Wifi, Modem, CD/DVD, Battery, etc.) Still same issue. I'm going to get my new AC brick tomorrow and swap CPUs. Then its pretty much the Mobo, I'll see what kind of issues come up with warranty with the people I bought it from. Hopefully its pain free.
