    Need to know the EXACT amount of beeps that it gives. Also, are the beeps rapid, one right after another, or for example does it go 3 short beeps, then a pause, and then 3 more. The answer to this will help greatly with answering your question.

Computer beeping at you is usually a problem with the video card or memory. Try re-seating both and see if you still have the same problem. If you do, individually remove each component and power on to test if the beeps persist.

When I turn on the dell dimension 8200 the light on the power button does not turn green, it stays amber color blinking and the computer does not turn on, is it the power supply that is gone bad?


Check all below possibilties & see if it works.....
  1. GGGY diagnostic lights can indicate a bad motherboard, or possibly a hard drive failure.You could try opening the case, then remove and reseat all the power and data cables, cards and memory and see if the system bootsCheck for burnt/charred power connectors on the motherboard and for any capacitors with bulging tops or are leaking, the tops should be perfectly flat.
  2. Could you please check out if the you are not having a battery problem. This could be the source of all the trouble that you are having.
  3. do the fans and hard drives spin
Please rate & vote, if you like solution
Thanks

The computer won't turn on


Try these steps if your computer won't turn on:

*You may or may not see a light on the back of your PC depending on the kind of power supply you have and the exact cause of the problem.(monitor light will likely be amber/yellow if your computer has stopped sending information to it)

*The power lights will stay on, you'll likely hear the fans inside your PC running, and you may or may not hear one or more beeps coming from the computer. If you hear beep sound, check your physical connections to the PC like RAM, Monitor, Cpu, Keyboard.

Dell Demension 9150. I push the button to turn it on and it just beeps. I tried it several time and had the same result. Any ideas on how to fix it? I do not have hardware experience. Thanks


if you the beeps are long, means that you need to replace the memory module. if it is a short beep, and your monitor is black:
  1. remove the video cable if your monitor display 'No signal' so the problem is in the central unit.
  2. if the monitor does not display 'No signal' so the problem is in the monitor you have to replace it.

I want to restore my dell dimension 9150 to factory settings can u help


If you were using Windows Xp just press Ctrl + F11 when you turn on your computer.

Press F8 if you were using Windows Vista then select repair your computer from the list.

Then if you have any disk or any Operating System disk insert the disk then boot from CD and follow the on screen instructions.

Hope it helps you....:)

Use Master/Slave setup. It makes no difference which drive is in which position, you just have to set the jumper on the drive. Cable position makes no difference as long as the jumper is set correctly.

Computer will not boot, and makes error sounds


If you mean the computer is emitting a series of "beeps", then I would try reseating the memory modules. If that doesn't work, try using only one memory module at a time to determine if one might be defective.
