    No, can't get that far - seems to want to boot, but just a black screen - I did have it up and running earlier - as I was working on something else, the machine beeped and monitor is black. does this help?

    It's up and running now - changed the powercord - started right up - do you think that it is a sign that the powersupply is going and when it wouldn't boot up, it was very noisy - do you think cleaning the fan will help?

Absolutely..when the power cord issue arises, then there is a problem with the input to the power supply..those are really cheap and easy to replace..

Memory upgrade on gx280 beeps on boot but doesn't start. memory beeps 1 234 5 6


When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer. The other issue is if that model supports 4 gig memory.

I have dell dimension 4700c I just get black screen all diagnostic light are green there are on beeps I have try F2,F8,F12,Windows turn it on take power cord out nothing is working pleas ehelp


You should try a different monitor if you can. I can't tell if you see the motherboard's BIOS, but if you don't, then I bet it's the monitor. If you can't find another monitor to plug it into, your TV might have the correct input. Hope this helps!

I have dell optiplex gx 150 beeps 6 times and a and b led is amber and c and d led is green


the 6 beep codes will be in a specific timing i.e. two beeps, a space 2 more beeps, and another space and 2 more beeps.

Looks like it may be a memory problem according to the lights.

Reseat all DIMMs and restart the system to retest.

Here is the link to the beep codes and diagnostic lights for your dell optiplex gx 150 HERE

The Beep codes are in Table 2 and the diagnostic lights are in Table 3.

Beeping sound from PC at turnon


If you do not get any display after turning on the system, first use the following steps:

Turn off the system and disconnect power cables
Press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Reconnect power cables and try to turn it on.

If it remains same, the next step will be to:
Turn off the system and disconnect power cables
Open the case and re-seat memory modules


If you have more than one modules installed, try to test the system with a single module at a time.

My Dell 4700c locks up for no reason at all, start-up issues


I have a feeling your hard drive is going bad if your hearing a clanking sound sometimes. Best way to know is to try to save your important stuff onto your external hard drive if you can and then format your C: drive using a windows 98 boot disk. If it can't go thru the format then you know for sure the drive is bad or if your hearing clanking sounds from the drive while your trying to do any of these steps then the drive is still bad.

My Dell 4700C PC will not start


Sounds like a blown power supply. Easily fixed. Go the a local computer store and buy a 400+ watt power supply, open your case, remove the 4 screws in the back, all the power plugs and replace with the new one.
