Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1521-JB Notebook ?

My computer gives about 29 short, high pitched beeps...

\015 My dell inspiron 1521 gives about 29 short, high pitched beeps when I start it up. The login screen appears just fine. I can log on to the computer, but after a few minutes, the screen starts to flash and change. The start menu may appear on his own, then g away. Other windows may open as well. If I try to open IE, it will open just fine. However, when I try to enter a url, it will try to access the site before I'm finished entering the url. It will not allow me to enter a complete url before it tries to go to it. Also, the computer will try to lock on it's own, prompting me to enter a password to unlock it. When I try to unlock the computer, the password section may disappear or not register the password. This page will flash and glitch constantly. At this point I'm unable to unlock the screen. I have just replaced the battery. This is the problem that I was having before I bought a new battery, and I was told that it was the battery that was causing this problem. So, I contacted Dell for a new battery, and still the same problem. I put this new battery onto my wife's computer, thinking that maybe this was a bad battery. Her computer runs normally with this battery. I hope that I have explained clearly.\015

Answers :

It sounds to me like you have a bug. You should try to get into the control panel when the computer "allows" you to, and click on "System Maintenance". Once in the system maintenance menu, click on "Back-up and Restore Center". In this menu you can choose to restore your computer to an earlier date. By restoring your computer, you could get rid of any "bug" or change that occured to your computer before the problems started.
