Background and Identification

The Dell XPS 8500 was released in 2013 and was sold as a high-end consumer desktop by Dell. It has been superseded by multiple replacement systems and is long discontinued.

To identify your system as an XPS 8500, the model is located on the I/O shield on the back of the system. In addition, the model number can also be verified with the service tag.
