Computer is stuck in power save mode. I have shut it off, on, pressed keys, and moved the mouse. It beeps 6 times and then won't come up.


What is the make and model of your computer? There are so many out there, it is hard to figure out your exact problem. Also - are the 6 beeps all at the same time, or are there any pauses in between them (i.e. 1 - 1 - 2)? If you can provide this information, perhaps we can find a solution for you.

My dell optiplex 790 desktop pc have a error code is 2-3-4 and some times 1-2 please i want help


Hello there
I have found two things which will help you.
A Technical Guide to the Optiplex 790 which will download from here:
http://www.dell.com/downloads/global/products/optix/en/optiplex-790-tech-guide.pdf
It is in pdf format and can be saved to your computer for future reference.
Also I found a Service Manual here:
Dell OptiPlex 990 Desktop Service Manual Page 76
If you click on the green download button at the top of the page then you will taken to a page where you enter 3 letters that are given to you and you can then opt to download it or view in your browser. In both cases it can be saved to your computer.
The latter has a good section on beep codes, and light codes on page 73 ( Chap 20) and following.
It gives your 2-3-4 as a possible USB failure, so try booting with no USB items attached - printer, flash drive, scanner, external drive etc.
It gives your 1-2 code as an expansion card failure and gives various means of checking.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

What can I do to reboot new hard drive


So a new drive will of course, have nothing on it at all. Lets just say you are installing windows 7. With the windows 7 disk in the optic drive as the power is turned on - check for boot options at start up or hit your Del key to get in to the bios. Search bios for boot priorities - Set optical CD/DVD drive as primary (first boot) Make sure you can boot to the windows disk.. Once it sees the disk in the drive - follow the directions and the disk with start the install process. AFTER your windows os has loaded, you may need to find orphan drivers that did not load with the windows disk. You'll have to search Dell.com for proper drivers. Oh, huge - If the computer is running SATA 1 - Pentium 4 to first generation Core 2. You may need to hit your F4 key to add other drivers at the very beginning of the windows install.
The drivers most the time, show as a raid driver, but this is needed or your system will never install - The Hard drive will never be found.

Hope this helps.
Have a great night..

6 beeps what dose it means


Dell beep codes:

If your computer beeps during start-up:
Run Dell Diagnostics to identify a more serious cause.

Beep Codes Your computer might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the monitor cannot display errors or problems. This series of beeps, called a beep code, identifies a problem. One possible beep code (code 1-3-1) consists of one beep, a burst of three beeps, and then one beep. This beep code tells you that the computer encountered a memory problem.
If your computer beeps during start-up:
Dell Diagnostics to identify a more serious cause.

Contact Dell for technical assistance.

Orange light


A solid amber light means you have an internal power problem. Your power supply has probably died.

Was working on my laptop and it shut down now it wont start up green light comes on for about 5 sec and goes off again


I guess the problem is with your hard disk. The hard disk might have got corrupted because of some bad sectors or some virus. Try going for a XP reinstallation. That will almost fix your problem. If the problem still persists, Then am really sorry to say, you should go for a product replacement which is not advisable you may happen to lose the data in your old hard disk. The service center ppl will not care abt your data and they wont take backup for you as well. So try to go for XP reinstallation.
