Dell 5150 Start-Up Problem.. beeps

\015 Hi there,\015\012\015\012Over the past few days I've gotten the blue screen with errors although I didn't write the error code... now when I try to start the pc, I hear a few beeps, and the numbers 3 and 4 are on.. 1 shows up but then disappears...\015\012\015\012Any help would be greatly appreciated! \015\012\015\012Thanks\015

Answers :

Beeping on startup is a memory error. The blue screen you got was most likely caused by a memory error as well. First, take out then re-install your memory. If the error persists and you have more than one stick, test each one singly to find out which stick is bad.
