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 support.dell.com 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.

I get two beeps at start up with nothing on the monitor and then have to restart again and then it finially comes up after three to four restarts.\r\n it goes 2 beeps 2 beeps I took the memory out and put...


Two Beeps indicates "No memory modules detected" as outlined in the service manual. Either you have bad memory or you memory slots ( or motherboard memory circuit) are bad.

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.
