It indicates a faulty RAM module. Have a check with a working one.

Hello, I have a problem with my Dell Dimension C521. When I try to boot it up it gives 1 long and 2 short beeps! How can I fix this problem? Thank you!


Hi,

1 long and 2 short beep code means your Memory (RAM) has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Your system made a Memory test and the test is a failure (bad memory during memory sizing).

Here's a guide for Beep Codes on your Dimension model: Click Here

Hope that helps you.

I have a fujitsu seimens scaleo p computer with a asus pg5d1-fms motherboard. Everytime i start the computer up it runs for maybe five minutes and boots up and everything but it just shuts down. During the...


these are the meanings of those two beeps u're getting:
1 short beep : Normal POST - system is ok
1 long, 2 short beeps : Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
if u're still hearing 1 long and 2 short beeps then try to swap the MDA, CGA adapter around, if it is ok then that is the problem...MDA and CGA is just like the VGA card they supplements each other. replace MDA/CGA card with another then see.

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.

I have a dimenison 4600 that just beep and won't boot


Possibly a memory issue. Double check your memory is clipped in properly. If you have two sticks you should be able to run on just one to test and see if one is damaged.

Chuck,
The 6 beeps are an error code. You should note a pattern such as 3 beeps, short pause, 1 beep, short pause, 2 beeps. Also, you may have a set of 4 error indicators on the back of the unit that will show a pattern of green and yellow lights. In any case, you will want to try to run the Dell diagnostics. Let us know the beep pattern and the light pattern and we should be able to give you some more specific information.

RAM PROBLUM


yes it is a RAM problem in all probability. Open your box after taking out the power cable. If you know how a RAM module looks like, take it out & replug it. If more than 1 module, fix 1 module at a time and power on the system. If still the same problem get your RAM checked/replaced.
