Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 5160 Notebook ?

Getting 3-3-3 beep code

\015 My screen goes blank a few seconds after booting. When I run the diagnostics, my beep code is 3-3-3. I tried adding, removing, flip flopping memory slots and still screen goes blank. Sounds like it's booting and led for HDD flickers as it should. I have a Dell 5160 laptop with 2gig memory. My Bios is Phoenix version A08. Other beep code lists have 3-3-3 as RESERVED or don't list the 3-3-3 at all. Sometimes the monitor will show the windows logo and then blank out. Running XP sp3.\015

solutions.
1 If any new hardware has been\015\012 recently added to the computer, remove that hardware to make\015\012 sure it is not the cause of your issue. If after removing the\015\012 new hardware your computer works it's likely the computer is\015\012 either not compatible with the new hardware or a system setting\015\012 needs to be changed to work with the new hardware device.
2
Remove everything from the back of the computer except the power cable.\015\012 Turn on the computer and see if it beeps normally. If the\015\012 computer has never beeped keep the monitor or display connected \015\012\011\011\011to see if any change occurs.
3If you are receiving a sequence of beeps\015\012 see our beep code page for a listing\015\012 of different beep codes and their explanation and/or your\015\012 motherboard or computer documentation. These beep codes are\015\012 meant as a method of quickly identifying what computer component\015\012 is failing or bad.
4
Verify that all the cables are properly connected at \015\012\011\011\011that there are no loose cables by firmly pressing in each cable.

  • \015\012\011\011\011\011All disk drives should have a data cable and \015\012\011\011\011\011power cable connected to them.\015\012\011\011\011
  • \015\012
  • \015\012\011\011\011Your power supply should have at least one cable \015\012\011\011\011going to the motherboard. Many motherboards may also have additional \015\012\011\011\011cables connected to them to supply power to the fans.\015\012\011\011\011
5
If you were unable to determine\015\012 by the beep code what is failing or do not have a beep code\015\012 disconnect the IDE,\015\012\011\011\011SATA,\015\012\011\011\011SCSI, or other data cables from the \015\012\011\011\011CD-ROM, \015\012\011\011\011hard drive, and floppy drive from the \015\012\011\011\011Motherboard.\015\012
\015\012\011\011\011If this resolves your irregular post or you now get \015\012\011\011\011an error message attempt to re-connect each device one at a time to\015\012 determine which device and or cable is causing the issue. \015\012\011\011\011In some situations it can also be simply a loose cable connection \015\012\011\011\011that causes the issue.
now you get no error .and resolves new setting of devics.
