Question about Dell Precision 530 Minitower 2.4Ghz 93218917
When this problem occured, I dissebled and assemled my PC again and again thinking the problem could be as a result of loose connection somewhere but Lo! No success.
Something I noted was that the system could start like loading, stops on the way, and to a a long beeps- first like it's counting 1,2,3... then continous for something like a minute or so.
Worse to me than all is a message displayed on the screen "Alert! Previous attempts of booting this system have failed at checkpoints i.e [kernel], [xint]," and now [Vmgr] please contact the manufacturer for assistance."
Also, I have tried replacing the RAM module with other operational once but, these couldn't be detected even. please expert help- I'm going through hell right now.
Beeps on start up is indication of missing hard drive. memories, or reversed IDE cable.
unplug all add-ons, leave just the memories and the monitor. turn on the machine. if all is good, then insert each items one at a time.
make sure the memories are the type that fits the machine (not physical but electrically).
I suspect your hard drive may be the problem.
go to BIOS and make sure all the items a checked and correct. specially the drive0 and drive1.
I assume that the hard drive is SATA. make sure the connection is 0 to 0 and 1 to1 in the BIOS.
check the hard drive in the BIOS, make sure it can detect the hard drive. if so, then the problem is in the hard drive. if you have another hard drive, try that one.
