Having problems with your Dell Inspiron Desktop with AMD Athlon 64 X2 Processor 4400+ ?
Beeping sound, wont turn on
\015 Helloi have a dell inpiron 35os, and recently when i turned it on there were 4 beeps over and over again, and the monitor would not boot. i reset the memory, but now it gives be 2 beeps, and still it wont start up. is there any way i can get it to run normally without replacing the whole thing or getting a repair?\015
From my experience you may be having a memory problem that is more than just a problem with reseating. When you reseated the ram did you pull the ram out and try one stick at a time? Or trying a different stick all together. I have had several go through the shop in the last year that I had to replace the ram in. Most were the 510e series but there were others as well. If you have more than one stick try just one at a time and in different slots. Also if you have plugin cards you my try unplugging them as well. When you said the beep codes changed by reseating the ram that makes me suspect the ram. Good luck and hope that helps....
The beeps are beep codes.Some are long and some are short.go to dell.com and enter your computer model number.under support customer service search for your beep code.also an easier way may to go here http://www.bioscentral.com/postcodes/dellbios.htm.This will explain the codes and help you understand what is wrong.If you require further assistance contact me.RICHARDM69

Computer "turns on" i hear four to five beeps, but the monitor gets no signal. a friend gave me the computer, only once did i see it boot up fully but it froze up so i had to restart it and it wont work. everytime i try i get the same thing four or five beeps and monitor says no signal. so i dont know whats happening. its a gateway computer runing windows xp. thats all i know. i know the monitor is good cause i tested it on another computer.
