\015 I have a dell demension 4400. I had recently opened up the case to change the CD rom to a DVD burner and then I had also switched the Nvidia slot that connects the monitor. I had upluged the powewr and all cables before doing this. Now after all is reconnected the system makes 4 beeps when turned on and there are 3 lights that stay on next to the USB connections on the back pannel. The system wont start. How can I fix. Any help is greatly appriciated. Tony\015
