6 beeps what dose it means


Dell beep codes:

If your computer beeps during start-up:
Run Dell Diagnostics to identify a more serious cause.

Beep Codes Your computer might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the monitor cannot display errors or problems. This series of beeps, called a beep code, identifies a problem. One possible beep code (code 1-3-1) consists of one beep, a burst of three beeps, and then one beep. This beep code tells you that the computer encountered a memory problem.
If your computer beeps during start-up:
Dell Diagnostics to identify a more serious cause.

Contact Dell for technical assistance.

Sounds as if you should scan your computer with an anti virus and an app to find malware such as spybot search and destroy
If you go into "Safe Mode" are these icons still there? If not maybe you can uninstall these items.

How do I overclock a Celeron 733mHz PGA370?


You can only overclock your computer if it has ATAPI BIOS. So get into BIOS upon bootup and if you have ATAPI then it will say it across the top. It will also have a section for the CPU with the current speed and an option to change it.

Processor compatability


Processors have a matched frequency rating with the motherboard and memory. So, when replacing or upgrading the processor, the new processor will need to have the same frequency as the old one. If the processors use the same type of memory, ie... PC2100, then ther are most likely compatable, and the use of a processor that was made for or from the same make of laptop is always a good idea. Some processors are designed specifically for use in certain manufacturer's system configurations. For example; say you have a Dell Latitude C840 with a 1.8ghz processor and you want to upgrade to a 2.2ghz processor from a Dell Inpiron 8600, this will work. Both of these machines use the PC2100 memory and have a matched frequency rating of 266mhz, and the processors are made for use in Dell machines. If you would like to tell me exactly what you're wanting to do, maybe I can recomend a processor for you. Let me know.

Powers down at startup


IF YOU TALK ABOUT A NOTEBOOK AND THE BIOS PASSWORD, CONTINUE READING THIS, otherwise if you are talking about operative system pass or PC... please let me know what os are you using to tell you explain that.

It seems that someone else has tryed to use your computer... what you should do is the following. Firs of all, some notebooks have a little well hidden button to reset BIOS, you notebook manual should tell you so, if not you should disassemble your notebook, so you will need very much help... I can guide you but first I must know if I understood you.

If you have a PC and its the bios password you are talking about, just open the case, remove all cables and let the case alone, take the lithium battery out for 30 minutes and start the system again, the bios will be in zero point so no password will be asked... Mother also has a jumper that resets the bios if you change its possition for a couple of minutes... you can see that in the manual (that jumper is called CMOS jumper).

If your problem is Windows or any OS password there are some things you can do, but please let me know first to guide you well.
