Having problems with your Dell Dimension 5100 (D51L1) PC Desktop ?

Computer Wont respond after the RAM was switched. 6 beeps.

\015 Me and my girl wanted to switch our 2 memory sticks (RAM) with old pairs thats she had back then. Supposedly had stuff from when she was younger. We turned off the computer, unplugged it and opened the side to switch the RAM on the slots. When we plugged back everything and turned on the computer, it started to beep. six times it beeped and the monitor didnt respond so it went to sleep. We eneded up switching the RAm with the original ones and still when we turn it on it gives us the 6 beeps. We really dont have the money to repair it but what can we do to fix the problem?\015

Hello

\015\012The beep code you are getting is faulty ram. There really is not anything you can do to fix this yourself. Sorry

You may have put non-ecc where it called for ecc.( or vise-versa.)
\012also buffered and non-buffered memory.
\012Some mobo can be very strict about this...
\012If you change memory and get an memory beeping error and it does the same thing when the original is put back in. I suggest that you can clear the bios by changing pin configurations. (The three pins (always the middle pin is used in both configurations.) is usually near the 3v coin battery.(sometimes marked bios reset.))
\012with the computer off and unplugged move the connector from starting point to the other position. turn on the computer for about 5 sec. power down, disconnect power plug and move the connector to the original position. 9 out of 10 times it usually works. power up and try it.( may have to go into bios and set time any date again.)
