The four beeps usually indicate a memory problem and it won't pass it's Power On Self Test. Try reseating the memory sticks, or, if you have two of them, take one out and try to start the machine and then swap them.
If this doesn't solve the problem, you most likely have a bad motherboard.

Dell deminsion 4700 when i moved it,monitor,mouse,keyboard quit.monitor briefly displays power safe mode.pressing any key don't help


When you moved your pc you probably knocked the graphics card loose. You can open it up and try re-seating it. Make sure you unplug the pc first and then press the on button for 10 seconds to clear out all the power from the power supply before opening the computer up.

Also, If you are using a KVM... Unplug the KVM's power cord for 30 seconds and plug it back in. That will reset it.

My desktop 4700 when turned on there is a buzzing soud about 6 times off/on-also the mouse,monitor,keyboard inop.monitor shows power saver on & goes off


I am going off of the assumption that the buzzing sound you refer to is actually the BIOS Post Code since your are not seeing the post check screen. With that in mind, you should reseat your motherboards memory sticks (not the hard drive, the RAM). Be sure to of course power off the computer, use a grounding strap and generally follow all safety steps for basic PC maintenance.

When i turn my dell on it jus beeps my mouse, keyboard & screen are off. also a,b ,c,d lights on


Did some checking. The mouse,keyboard and screen get there power the motherboard and the a:drive b:drive c:drive d:drive get there power from the power supply. The mother board gets it power from the power supply. So the problem is in the mother board. You can try to remove the battery for a minute and put it back with it unplugged of course to reset the Bios or jump the Bios pins on the board same thing.Check to make sure nothing is loose inside.Sometimes video and ram that get loose will make a computer beep and shut down and a bad stick of ram will to.

Dell dim. 4700 is beeping loudly when attempting to turn on


Hello there betsyjmp.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Those beeps you hear ... they are a very, very good thing. It's your motherboard trying to tell you about something possibly being amis, in the only language she knows.

Refer to the code indexes for your PC here. Attempt to determine a match, then take whatever corrective actions are advised.

Good luck betsyjmp, and please post back ...

Beeps, wont boot up


Most of the time when it beeps, and there is nothing show on the computer screen, it is a RAM problem. A stick of ram may have gone bad. If you have two sticks of ram in the computer, you can try to remove one stick at a time to see which one might have gone bad.

Dell inspiron 1501 work fine turn off last night now wont turn on


You mentioned trying a different battery, try a different AC adapter.

When plugging in the ac adapter to the wall, see if the POWER LED comes on on the adapter, then when you connect it to the computer, see if the LED stays on.

If the issue occurs with both AC adapters (No battery installed) then the motherboard has failed. If one ac adapter works but the other doesn't then the adapter is bad

Beep problem Dell Dimension 4700


Beep problem update - Dell 4700. Last night started computer - cold boot. The screen had just started to light up and then went black and computer started beeping in an interrupted sequence. Fan speed increased considerably (suggesting overheat?) Shut it down and attempted two restarts with no success. This morning I unplugged all cords, opened case, pulled and reset memory cards and vacuumed inside. The computer was very clean so really don't suspect that dust was an issue. Buttoned it back up plugged in plugs and restart successfully accomplished. Have no clue why. Some square electrons, I guess.
