Step 1:

If you computer is not booting, there is an issue with one or more of your RAM sticks. It could be they have become dislodged. Turn off your laptop and remove the battery and power supply.

Step 2:

Touch bare metal you don't want static electricity on your hands.

Step 3:

Locate the door on the bottom of the laptop. There will be a door that houses the RAM. Unscrew the door.

Step 4:

Pull out the RAM stick / sticks. Replace them.

Step 5:

Close everything up.

Step 6:

Boot the PC. If there is no beeps and the PC boots then the sticks became dislodged.

Step 7:

If the PC is still not booting you need to replace your RAM sticks.

SOURCE: dell inspiron 8000 without operating system

First, if you are still running Vista on your desktop then you will need to buy a license for the laptop. Does the laptop have a WinXP on it now? If so, go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/upgrade-advisor.aspx and run the Vista Upgrade Advisor. If not, determine the hardware specifications of your laptop and go here http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/system-requirements.aspx Compare your laptops specs to those listed for the version of Vista you wish to install.

SOURCE: my dell inspiron b130 boots up but monitor is black

After your laptop boots up into windows, hold down the Fn key and as your doing that press the F8 button that should switch the output from the vga connetor to the LCD screen on the laptop.

If you still don't get video then you'll have to reseat the LCD cable from the back of the LCD screen to where it connects to the motheboard.

If you still don't get video then its either going to be a bad LCD or a bad motherboard.

What does it mean when i powered on my Dell Inspiron M5030 it beeped 5 times and asked for the system password?


Can you check in your CMOS to see if you have the system password enabled? If so you may need to disable it.

Try link: http://blog.parts-people.com/2014/06/27/dell-inspiron-m501r-m5010-beep-codes-diagnostic-indicators-2/ How to identify beep codes: When a laptop or computer first powers on, it goes through an initial set of diagnostic tests to make sure vital components are preforming correctly. These tests are called POST or Power On Self Test. When a test fails, the user is notified via POST codes, Light codes, or Beep codes. For diagnosing Beep codes you need to:
  • Power on the laptop or restart it if it is already on.
  • Listen to the number of consecutive beeps when the computer begins to boot. Restarting the laptop may be necessary and should not harm the laptop at this time.

My dell inspiron beeps 20 times at sturtup


I wonder if you have a keyboard issue. Most times the constant beeping means the keyboard is bad, but it doesn't normally boot or revert back to 5 or 4 beeps.

While starting beep sound comes, why


This is the advanced troubleshooting section for most computers.

First thing to do is "reseat" the memory modules - Reseat, with thePC 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. The Ram is located underneath the laptop.

If you find that this is information was helpful to you, please rate me and leave a comment as this will encourage me to do more free work for you and others. And please let me know if there's anything else I could help you with. Without any inputs we cannot proceed assisting... Thank you for using FIXYA! Best regards,

Inspiron 531s will not boot up, keeps beeping, saying it is in power save mode. How do I fix the problem


System Beep Codes The Inspiron™ 531 / 531s system can emit a series of beeps during start-up if the display cannot show errors or problems. These series of beeps, called beep codes, identify various problems. One possible beep code consists of repetitive three short beeps. This beep code indicates the computer encountered a possible system board failure.
The series of beeps has a 3-second delay before it repeats. The series and delays continually loop until you press the power button.
Code Description Suggested Remedy 1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure System board failure; covers BIOS corruption or ROM error 2 No memory modules detected
  1. If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
  2. If available, install a good memory module of the same type into the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
3 Chipset error (North and Southbridge chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel® platform); chipset error System board failure. Power LED is blinking amber. Time-Of-Day Clock test failure Gate A20 failure Super I/O chip failure Keyboard controller test failure 4 RAM read/write failure
  1. Ensure no special memory module/memory connector placement requirements exist.
  2. Verify the memory modules you are installing are compatible with the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
5 Real time clock failure. Possible battery failure or system board failure.
  1. Replace the battery.
  2. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
6 Video BIOS test failure Video card failure 7 CPU cache test failure Processor failure

Dell Inspiron 1545 will not boot up.


Try removing battery and booting on AC power only from adaptor
Then take out ram modules and reseat these, try to boot
Disconnect hard drive, DVD rom drive and try to boot.

If you get a beep sound, this shows that at least there is power to the system. Note down the number of beeps and post the result.
