Get a error code 132 on start up, does not boot up

Posted by on

  • Don Johnson Nov 06, 2012

    By chance I found the Dell support site that listed the beep codes and diagnostic lights codes. Beep code 132 means (Memory not being properly identified or used), I then found the Diagnostic light codes of A and B in yellow and C and D green meaning (memory modules are detected but a memory failure has occurred).I removed the two memory modules and reinstalled them, apparently one of them was not seated all the way and the computer booted up right away and seems to be running fine now.

You are the MAN, Don!

I also think you should remove all Ram Memory modules, and use a pencil eraser to clean the gold plated contact pins.

Because you obviously have 'corrosion' on those contact pins.

Average example of a DIMM ram memory module, as used in a desktop computer,

Handle the ram memory module by the BODY.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
The Body is everywhere on the ram memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.

If you are using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band of the pencil, touch the gold plated contact pins.

Rub the eraser up, and down on EACH contact pin. BOTH sides.
Doesn't take much rubbing, or much pressure.
In fact when you are done, you may feel you have done nothing at all.

The gold plated contact pins may Not be bright, and shiny when finished.
I assure you Don, that you have cleaned them. Doesn't take much 'corrosion' to make a bad contact surface.

(Gold isn't supposed to corrode)

Use air to remove the eraser dust. If you have a can of compressed air for computers available, use it. If not air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.
(Also use compressed air on the ram memory slots)

[Power removed before starting!

If you're searching for a way to repair a runtime error 132 then i will let you in on a state-of-the-art yet very easy-to-use solution so you can stop worrying and get back to work! This type of error pops up a lot; and in a large number of these cases the problem starts in a specific area in your computer. Help is on the way! and actually in practically no time at all - just moments - you will succeed in doing away with such errors once and for all.
The gist of this is, if it's time for you to repair a runtime error 132 you need to scan and repair your registry. As you would imagine, it's very tricky to handle it alone, therefore, it is a bad idea to go that way. In my experience, the best method for dealing with this is to take advantage of an reginout registry cleaner repair program. Registry repair tools are specifically designed to completely examine and correct a faulty windows registry in just a few minutes.
