Dell xps 9100 constant beeps upon startup



Beep Codes
Your computer might emit a series of beeps
during start-up if the monitor cannot display
errors or problems. The following repetitive
beep codes help you troubleshoot problems
with your computer.
NOTE: To replace parts, see the Service
Manual on the Dell Support website at
support.dell.com.
One beep - BIOS ROM checksum failure;
possible motherboard failure
Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell" on page 53).
Two beeps - No RAM detected

Remove the memory modules, reinstall
one module and restart the computer. If
the computer starts normally, reinstall anadditional module. Continue until you have
identified a faulty module or reinstalled all
modules without an error.

If available, install memory modules of the
same type in your computer.

Three beeps - Possible motherboard failure
Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell' on page 53).
Four beeps - RAM read/write failure

Ensure that no special memory module/
memory connector placement requirements
exist (see the Service Manual on the Dell
Support website at support.dell.com).

Verify that the memory modules that you are
installing are compatible with your computer.

Five beeps - Real Time Clock failure
Replace the battery.
Six beeps - Video BIOS test failure

Its D51s. it gives one long beep and two short ones with no display. Initially it was working but when i removed RAM and on reinstalling it, it started giving me this beeps


Beep codes vary but 1 long and 2 short usually indicate a video problem. Since your problem began with removing the ram try this. Remove the memory modules again and re-seat firmly. If you notice the memory channels are dusty blow them out before re-seating. Hope this solves your problem.

Beeps on startup but no video and continues to have long beeps with no video


Check the the cpu, ram and video card are seated properly. If they all are, then the board is defective and will need to be replaced.

Ram beep but no display bios jumper is clear stat bios jumper is normal then no start machine


Hello,
Please see this as reference

Continuous long beeps-RAM error
2 short beeps- BIOS error
1 long and 8 short beeps- Display Card error
1 long beep after few seconds 2 short beeps-FDC error
1 long beep after few seconds 1 short beeps-FDC is Ok
1 long beep and 2 short beeps-Display Card Error

Most probable cause is Ram memory, please try removing modules and reinserting, also try using alternately just one of them to determine which one is defective.

Exactly how far does your computer get before it restarts? there is normally a short beep during the startup phase, do you hear the short beep, or is it a long beep or a combination of different beeps?
I am not saying that it cannot be the power supply but usually problems of this sort are a faulty graphic card or faulty RAM, worst case senario is a faulty motherboard. The first two you can test by adding an extra graphic card or replacing the RAM (or taking one out and then the other if you have more than one RAM) - BE AWARE that you can damage your computer or the RAM itself if you touch the wrong things and you are have a static charge.

Durin start display stays black and one long beep


Hi,
Based on the information provided, looks like some peripheral or component failed. This abnormal beep means some components (like RAM) is either not functioning OR is loosely connected etc.
If you are comfortable with your desktop, i would suggest >> (1) checking if the RAM modules are inserted properly or not. (2) Checking if the Video card is inserted properly.
Sometimes RAM/video card etc get loose due to a shock/**** etc, and hence the abnormal beeps.
If you are not comfortable with opening your desktop, then i am afraid you would have to call for service to check whats wrong in the system.
Thanks and do tell if this solved your problem.

One Short beep and two long beep


The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes. Sort of like a Morse code, if you know what that is. Every computer has it's own BIOS program, and version of that program. Each BIOS has it's own Beep Codes.

Taking a guess, as I don't know what BIOS program or version you have, it sounds like a ram memory issue.
Suggest you,

1.Unplug the computer

2.Open the computer case

3.TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve you body of Static electricity. Static will silently fry out your delicate computer hardware components. You won't see it or feel it.

4.Remove the ram stick/s. Reinstall the ram stick/s. (Stick/s means one ram stick, or two, three, or four ram sticks)

You may have just had a loose ram stick.

Blank screen long beep 2 short beeps at startup.


The 1 long 2 short beep code means a problem in the video circuitry and the laptop can't initialize the display. This is usually caused by failure of the integrated video chipset. Unfortunately, on a laptop you can't just open the case and install a new video card like you can on a desktop. You need to replace the mainboard. Replacements are available online. Here is one source found by a Google search. (I'm just using this as an example. I haven't dealt with this site.)

The 4 beep code means no memory detected when the computer started up. No surprise there since you had taken it out.
