I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

Vostro bios post beeps


Either your memory sticks are bad or, you have too much memory in the slots. Computers can accept a lot of memory but they can only recognize a certain amount. Make sure you don't have too much.

2007 DELL XPS M140 LAPTOP WILL LOCK DUE TO 256M MEMORY STICK


Normally you boot up the laptop without a memory stick in the USB port.
Check your BIOS settings for the boot up device order.
You should have the hard drive as the first boot device, you can have the CD as the first boot device and the hard drive as the second boot device.
You should not have the USB port as the first boot device.

ive found the best prices at tigerdirect.com and they ship it right to your door. make sure the tiger ppl have the exact match and dont replace your order with more expensive replacements as some of these substitutions require voltages that your motherboard CAN NOT produce and will not work.. you also want to make sure to buy low density ram, it performs better, is a few bucks more than high density, but worth EVERY penny. E-bay is notorious for selling cheap high density ram on thier site.
If you stick to the list above, you shouldnt have any issues.
This should fixya up! please rate...

Forgotten motherboard password of dell laptop model pp01l and system no. 7HYDT1-595B


Daustie, you don't read much, do you? What betenikomila is looking for an answer to is the BIOS/CMOS password, not the windows pass as you misguidedly offered bad advice to fixing.
What is needed is to do a procedure called "clearing NVRAM". The nvram is the non volatile memory that you computer keeps setting such as time, date, drives installed, and boot process. Think of it as the brains of the computer that tell it how to do the basic things.
The steps that follow are from Dell's website. PLEASE follow EXACTLY what it says, because you need to go inside the case & one small slip will cause your computer to become nothing more than a shiny doorstop. If you feel uncomfortable doing this, get someone that you trust to do it.

To clear NVRAM for all devices and restart the system, perform the following steps:

1. Turn off the computer and unplug it from the electrical outlet.

2. Remove the computer cover.

3. Move the jumper plug on the JPX2 jumper to pins 2 and 3 to erase all settings in System Setup at system start-up.

4. Replace the computer cover.

5. Attach the computer to the electrical outlet and turn it on.

6. After the system boots, turn it off, and unplug it from the electrical outlet.

7. Remove the computer cover.

8. Move the jumper plug on the JPX2 jumper back to pins 1 and 2.

9. Replace the computer cover.

10. Attach the computer to the electrical outlet and turn it on.

Install mouse


most of the time, dell components (on a dell computer) will have the drivers pre-loaded on the system. follow the directions that should have come with the mouse for plugging in and synchronizing the component. Normally this involves plugging in the "connection" unit to a working USB port on your system and pressing the "sychronize" button on the unit. Make sure your mouse has good fresh batteries in it otherwise the sychronization will fail. You should get anywhere between 4 and 10 feet or range with your wireless mouse if it's operating correctly.

Also, if the drivers are NOT preloaded on the system, there should be a driver disc that came with the mouse, insert it and install the drivers for your mouse on your computer prior to following the above advice.
