Beep codes dell

What model dell laptop ?
we've heard from Studio 17 customers who have the Core i7 processor here on Dell's Forum and other places like ForumDeluxx who are hearing a series of 7 beeps when they try to start their systems.
Yesterday, we posted a new Studio 17 BIOS (A05) to that should ensure the Studio 17 does not have this issue once the updated BIOS is applied. For those of you who have a system that sounds a series of 7 beeps when you try to start it, there are two solutions - one is a DIY fix and the other is contacting Dell and having a service technician come out and take care of it (see bottom of this post for options on contacting Dell).
The fix involves reseating the CMOS (a.k.a. coin) battery inside the system and then (this is important) updating the BIOS as noted above.Even if you are not experiencing beep codes, we recommend updating to the A05 BIOS.
Here is a link to the Service Manual that will explain how to reseat the internal CMOS Battery.
You will need to remove the back plate from the system, so please make sure you are comfortable performing this task.
1. Turn Off and unplug the system and turn it bottom side up
2. Remove external main battery from the laptop.
3. The rear plate for the system is held on by 6 screws.
Remove all 6 screws and remove the plate.
4. With the battery compartment facing you, looking in the top right hand corner you will see the CMOS battery.
5. Using a minimal amount of force and a flat tool, pry the battery gently from its seat (it is held on by sticky substance)
6. Unplug the battery from the motherboard by disconnecting the white connector.
7. Wait for approximately two minutes and then reattach the battery cable and reseat the battery.
8. Replace the rear plate and the retaining screws and reseat the main battery.
9. Attach the AC adapter and power on the system.
10. Update to the A05 BIOS revision
11. If a 5 beep code is heard, switch off the system and restart it.

Will m7350n memory chips work in a m7000

A) HP Support > HP Pavilion Media Center m7350n Desktop PC > Main Support page,

Product information > Product specifications > HP Media Center m7350n Desktop PC Product Specifications,



That is DDR2 Sdram at 400MegaHertz. (400MHz)

Has 240 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.120 on each side.
One Locating Notch on the bottom also.

Problem is I find no HP Pavilion m7000, or HP Pavilion m7000n; Desktop PC.

Look on the back of the computer for the white Service Tag.
What is the Product Number?
P/N = Product Number

Post back in a Comment.

I can tell you that if it's a Pavilion m7060n Desktop PC, it will work,

Same thing if it is a Pavilion m7070n Desktop PC,

Be SURE you FOLLOW Anti-Static Procedures, when working on your unplugged from power computer.

Everywhere on the Ram Memory module ('Stick'), EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom; is the BODY.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Handle the Ram Memory module by the Body.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hi i m pravin from INDIA . i m newly assemble mother bord but p.c. start only 30 sec. then off so what can i do

1) The metal plate that the motherboard mounts to is a Support Plate.
It can be a separate metal plate from the computer case, or part of the computer case itself.

Some Support Plates that are part of the computer case have protrusions, or 'Bumps' formed, that hold the motherboard up off of the Support Plate.

Other designs of Support Plates use metal or plastic supports that space the motherboard away from the Support Plate.

These supports are Spacers, or Standoff's.
A Spacer is made of plastic.
A Standoff is made of metal.

The metal standoff's have a hex shape around the middle, a threaded end on one end, and a threaded hole on the other end.

The Standoff's MUST match the motherboard mounting holes.
There Cannot be a Standoff sitting out on the Support Plate, that does not line up with a motherboard mounting hole.

If there is it can short the solder joints on the bottom of the motherboard, and cause the motherboard to short out.

Sometimes removing the motherboard, and making sure that all metal Standoff's line up with the motherboard mounting holes, will fix the problem.

Other times it is too late, and the motherboard is damaged.

2) Make sure ALL power cables from the Power Supply are attached, and securely attached.

If the motherboard requires a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, make sure it is plugged into the motherboard,

If the motherboard requires an 8-pin EPS +12 Volt power cable, make sure you are not using just one 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable,

3) Be sure you have a KNOWN to be good Power Supply, and it has at least the minimum Wattage needed for your computer build.

4) Make sure the top of the Processor's case is clean, and the bottom of the Heatsink, and that Thermal Paste is applied, and applied properly.

5) Make sure you observed Anti-Static Precautions when you were building, and are building your computer.

Static shock will ruin a computer.

It beeps five times and no picture just five beeps

The beeps you hear is a BIOS Beep Code.

The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for the problem.

The BIOS Beep Code is sort of like Morse Code.
Instead of a series of dots, and dashes, it's a series of short beeps, and long beeps.

One example:
One short beep, two long beeps.
Then a period of silence, and the beep code starts all over.

There are different BIOS manufacturers that make the BIOS program.
(Basic Input/Output System)

Two of the main BIOS manufacturers are AMI, (American Megatrends Inc.), and Award/Phoenix.
(Award and Phoenix used to be two separate manufacturers, but have combined)

5 short beeps sound like one of AMI's BIOS Beep Codes.

Part of the information given states to remove the ram memory module/s, ('Sticks'), and reinstall them.

I would also like to add to clean the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram memory modules.

Computer off, unplugged from power, and computer case open, observe Anti-Static Precautions BEFORE reaching inside your computer, and handling the ram memory module/s.

Use a pencil eraser to clean the gold plated contact pins.

Example of a DDR Sdram ram memory module, and it's gold plated contact pins,

(You can click on the photo to enlarge. You can enlarge twice)

The top of the ram memory module is towards the DRAM chips. (Black rectangular objects)
The bottom of the ram memory module is where the contact pins are located.

Suggest use the eraser on the top of each contact pin, stroking down towards the bottom of the contact pin.

If you are using an eraser on the end of a pencil, refrain from letting the metal band touch the contact pin.

Now use air to remove the eraser dust.
You can use a can of compressed air for computers, if one is readily available, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Reinstall the ram memory module/s.
Close the computer case, plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Installing new MB in old case

Thank you blcos, I appreciate that.
I didn't know what level of tech/fabricator you are, and I now see you are very competent.

My two-fold proposed solution is,

A) IF, the Support Plate you have for the motherboard you have on hand, is too small in area to just rivet it to the existing metal 'Ribcage' metal frame work,

1) Cut the inner part of the existing Support Plate/Framework, so that there is a large rectangular hole in the center, leaving a 'Frame' around the edge.

The 'frame' being approximately 1 inch wide, or whatever is compatible.
(Would resemble a picture frame when done)
Leaving enough area for the new Support Plate to rivet to it.
(Pop rivet)

A minor, (Major?) problem is that the existing Support Plate would have to be removed from the 'Ribcage' frame work, in order to cut a rectangular hole in the center.

(Unless you have a large hole made, and use a metal nibbler cutter.
Example: )

The rivets would be drilled out, with pop rivets to reinstall.

The brass standoff's, or plastic spacers would have to be the right height, in order for the I/O ports on the motherboard to line up with the holes in the I/O Shield.
Or modifications made to them, or the I/O Shield.

The I/O Shield not only keeps dust out, and helps form a tighter seal for air flow inside the computer case, but also is a Radio Frequency interference shield.

B) Proposal 2 was to use the existing Support Plate, and mount the new Support Plate on top, with modifications to the 'Bumps' on the old Support Plate, and to the I/O Shield, and spacers used.
(Plastic spacers, or metal brass standoff's)

As you stated, flatten the Bumps down

The I/O Shield may have to have one side reduced, (Outside case edge), so that the I/O ports will line up with the holes in the I/O Shield.

The extensions, (Spacers or Standoff's), may have to be reduced in height, or substituted with a compatible item that will work, so that the I/O ports line up with the holes in the I/O Shield.

Whatever line of modification you use, I suggest that a gap be created in-between the Support Plate, and Motherboard for air flow, and also to keep the solder joints on the bottom of the motherboard, from touching the Support Plate.

If possible I would like to know how this comes out.

Where will antenna of wirelessPCI adapter will fit on motherboard

It sticks out the back. You remove one of the silver plates so you have access to an empty PCI slot on your motherboard. The three white slots are the PCI slots, it looks like you have a modem or NIC in the middle one now. Remove the phillips head screw securing the bottom plate and you will be able to slide the card in from the back and snap it into the lowest white PCI slot.
