Dell xps 9100 constant beeps upon startup



Beep Codes
Your computer might emit a series of beeps
during start-up if the monitor cannot display
errors or problems. The following repetitive
beep codes help you troubleshoot problems
with your computer.
NOTE: To replace parts, see the Service
Manual on the Dell Support website at
support.dell.com.
One beep - BIOS ROM checksum failure;
possible motherboard failure
Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell" on page 53).
Two beeps - No RAM detected

Remove the memory modules, reinstall
one module and restart the computer. If
the computer starts normally, reinstall anadditional module. Continue until you have
identified a faulty module or reinstalled all
modules without an error.

If available, install memory modules of the
same type in your computer.

Three beeps - Possible motherboard failure
Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell' on page 53).
Four beeps - RAM read/write failure

Ensure that no special memory module/
memory connector placement requirements
exist (see the Service Manual on the Dell
Support website at support.dell.com).

Verify that the memory modules that you are
installing are compatible with your computer.

Five beeps - Real Time Clock failure
Replace the battery.
Six beeps - Video BIOS test failure

On boot up I get 4 short beeps what is the computer telling me.


That's your cell phone.

JUST KIDDING!

The beeps are BIOS Beep Codes.
4 short beeps means the same thing as 2 short beeps.

Problem with the Ram Memory.

Computer off, and unplugged from power - Desktop
Computer off, and all power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery - Laptop

Suggest you remove all Ram Memory modules, and clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom, with a pencil eraser.
If you are not using a solid eraser, and are using an eraser on the end of a pencil, refrain from letting the metal band contact the contact pins.

Rub the eraser up, and down on Each contact pin. Both sides.
Use air to remove the eraser dust.
You can use a can of compressed air for computers if available, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Don't worry if you cannot see that you have cleaned the surfaces of the contact pins.
Using the eraser I assure you that the eraser will clean them.

The gold plated contact pins develop corrosion on them after a period of time.
Doesn't take much corrosion to make a bad contact surface.

Reinstall the Ram memory module/s.
Close the computer case, or reinstall the Memory Compartment Cover.

Plug the desktop computer back into power, WAIT 20 seconds, turn it on.

Reinstall the Battery into the laptop, plug the AC adapter back in.
WAIT 20 seconds, turn the laptop on.

Inspiron 531s will not boot up, keeps beeping, saying it is in power save mode. How do I fix the problem


System Beep Codes The Inspiron™ 531 / 531s system can emit a series of beeps during start-up if the display cannot show errors or problems. These series of beeps, called beep codes, identify various problems. One possible beep code consists of repetitive three short beeps. This beep code indicates the computer encountered a possible system board failure.
The series of beeps has a 3-second delay before it repeats. The series and delays continually loop until you press the power button.
Code Description Suggested Remedy 1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure System board failure; covers BIOS corruption or ROM error 2 No memory modules detected
  1. If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
  2. If available, install a good memory module of the same type into the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
3 Chipset error (North and Southbridge chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel® platform); chipset error System board failure. Power LED is blinking amber. Time-Of-Day Clock test failure Gate A20 failure Super I/O chip failure Keyboard controller test failure 4 RAM read/write failure
  1. Ensure no special memory module/memory connector placement requirements exist.
  2. Verify the memory modules you are installing are compatible with the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
5 Real time clock failure. Possible battery failure or system board failure.
  1. Replace the battery.
  2. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
6 Video BIOS test failure Video card failure 7 CPU cache test failure Processor failure

Will not turn and will not stop beeping


Beep codes can tell you what is wrong with your computer. (Assuming your motherboard uses the IBM codes that many manufacturer's use) If the continuous beeping involves long beeps, it's a memory issue. Pull out and reseat the sticks. (Try them one at a time). This involves opening the case, pushing down the clips on the ends of the memory stick and then pulling them up and pushing them back (keep the orientation the same and aligned). The memory is fully seated when the clips pop back into the memory stick's edge (there is a little shaped area that the clip fits into.).

If you here high-low beeps, then you have a CPU overheating issue.

Check your manual for the specifics on your machine's BIOS and then you can search for the beep codes for that motherboard.

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(IBM is the only one with any continuous beep codes that I know; most codes have a repeat pattern with a short break to indicate the end of the code)

I replaced on My Sony VGC-LS25E the HDD from 250Gb to 500Gb reinstalled original Factory System with recovery works ok all day i shut it down like for 30 Mins and turn back on no video only 2 beeps put...


beep codes depend on the brand of the computer you have or on the bios they are using. for sony desktop computers, if you here 2 beeps, it means that there is a parity error. try to reseat the RAM/memory of the computer.
