XPS 600 - Six Beeps No Boot

When I turn on my Dell XPS 600 I hear 6 beeps from the computer and no signal to the monitor. This comes after it recently has been rebooting randomly whether I'm actively using the machine or letting it idle with processes such as Firefox running.

    Yes, your response sent me on the right track to solving my problem. Initially I was trying to help fix that computer over the phone. Once I got it in my hands it was just a matter of eliminating potential issue. I came down to little more than "6" beeps that I was told over the phone. In the end though it led me to a memory problem that was caused by the motherboard. It stopped working with Dual Channels. Instead of running on the single stick of RAM (which allowed me to boot) I stuck the the two in slot A1 and B1 so it at least kept the same amount of memory.

    mine has done this a few times, usually just unplugging power supply lead from pc, then holding down power button to remove static energy and then plugging back power and rebooting solves this issue. Once this has failed then i just removed panels and hoovered out motherboard and componants seemed to do the trick

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

Beep codes on dell xps one 2010


If I understand your issue, it sounds like the display works fine until it loads Windows, and then it has the error? It sounds to me like the video card drivers are crashing. This may be the case if you have recently updated them, or installed a new video card. I would recommend getting the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website on a CD, SD card, or USB drive, and then boot your computer in safe mode. Once in safe mode, install the new drivers, and see if that will help. You could also try using your onboard (integrated) video card if your motherboard has one. This could help rule out if the monitor is at fault. Just make sure your BIOS has the integrated card as a secondary video device if it the (I'm assuming PCIex16) peripheral card isn't found.

Three sets of beeps, or three individual beeps? Does it repeat? If so, then check this for the code you are hearing:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pe600sc/en/it/1r237c20.htm#1046231

If it is a steady once-per-second beep - or a constant screech - and it is able to boot to the OS (or even most the way), then it is probably your RAID controller. Boot to CTRL-A or CTRL-M to check the status of your array.

Dell XPS 600 beeping noice


there are 2 things that can cause that, memory failure, or mother board, cheeper route to go would be replace your memory first, and see if that corrects the problem, if not then, check anything new you installed inside such as video card, lan cards, of something like that, if that doesn't work you need to have it looked at and possibly the mother board replaced,
