Question about Dell OptiPlex GX240 PC Desktop

2 Answers

WHEN BOOTING UP A DELL OPTICPLEX GX240 fan turns on I get 3 beeps

I do not get any picture on screen, I checked the monitor on another cpu and there were no problems.
suspect a bad VGA card. My question is does it matter
if I use any type of video card or I have to install the one for this model ?

I have a dell 580 inspiron thats does not turn on..before it turned on but now it just beeps and doesnt follow through with start up.......i had a blue screeen before this ....thanxx


Blue screen could be the windows files getting corrupted due to a virus, file fragmentation or a failing hard drive, overheating cpu or failing memory.
The beeping usually indicates a hardware failure, first open the computer and see it the CPU heatsink is in place properly seated and fan is connected and spinning.
Second with the PC off, remove and reinsert the memory.
These are just a few things to check , most likely the hard drive has failed and needs replacing.
pressing certain keys during bootup can sometimes isolate the issue, but only if the monitor still shows a picture
I hope this helps
Thanks

Hello
Open up the case,after unpluging pc.

Remove memory sticks one at a time.After you removed one try pc again.

If it boots up normally then you know that memory stick is bad.Also check your keyboard by unpluging and pluging back in while booting up.

More then likley this is bad memory.

This sounds like a video controller issue. Try booting with a different monitor. Ensure the cables are connected to the motherboard correctly (fans/power/led indicators). Try booting off of a single stick of RAM. Otherwise you may need to check the warranty status and RMA the motherboard to have it repaired/replaced.

1 beep: circuits reset - ready to power up
5 short, 1 long: memory issue

Sounds like your PC is diplaying out of your monitors range. Try pressing f8 while booting up to get safe mode. then turn down the video resolution to display what your monitor can handle. Good Luck.

ASUS P5KPL-AM CPU fan connection.


You should still be able to connect the 3 pin connector of the fan to the 4 pin connector on the mobo, the keying tab is offset so that you cannot connect it to the wrong pins.
If you still don't want, or can't connect it there, simply go on the Bios (press delete after you turn on your computer) and you will find an option to monitor CPU fan speed.
If you need any more help, let me know

No beep,No Display on my monitor,only CPU heatsink fan is moving


have you thought about changing the battery on the motherboard, also checking that the fan on the cpu is seated properly with enough heatsink paste as both these issues will stop the pc from booting
