Question about Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer
When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer.

Assuming that you hear 2 short beeps and a pause before you hear 2 more beeps, your computer can not detect any memory during the power on self test. Turn off everything and unplug all of the cables. Then open the computer and carefully remove all of the memory in the machine. (Press down on the plastic latches that hold the modules in place then pull the memory stick away from the motherboard.) Replace one module and then try to reboot the computer. If this works, try the other stick(s). Try the modules in different slots until you know if any of the modules and slots work.
Replace with new memory if possible. The 531 can take 512 MB or 1 GB memory with the following specs: 667-MHz or 800-MHz DDR2 SDRAM.
If the none of the memory works in any slots, try them in another computer if possible. If the memory works in another system, then the motherboard needs to be replaced.
I hope this helps.

This is the advanced troubleshooting section for most computers.
First thing to do is "reseat" the memory modules - Reseat, with the PC powered off first ground yourself to a metal part of the PC before touching the memory modules and then only handle them by the edges as they are static sensitive. Remove each memory module then reinstall and make sure it's fully and correctly seated. Try the PC and if there are still problems, try one memory module at a time in case one of them is defective.
