SOURCE: Four beeps wont turn on, Dell 4700

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.

SOURCE: Internet explorer task bar missing

Try pressing the left Alt key alone. Does the menu bar appear?
Try right-clicking the area where the menu bar is supposed to be. Try different spots around the upper part of the window, eventually you should see in the context menu an option to turn on the menu bar.

SOURCE: dell optiplex gx860 continuous beep

This indicates a motherboard problem, first remove the ram one stick at a time and test as you go, if one stick is bad the computer won't start up. If memory checks out, remove hardware one at a time and put back as you check up the ladder, if all checks out the motherboard is the most likely issue.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron 530 won't start. 4 Beeps, Soild blue light.

According to Dell this is a RAM issue. You can find a list of diagnostic Beep Codes here. Also be sure to inspect the capacitors on your motherboard. If you notice any of them leaking or blown then that is your problem.

If you have extra RAM lying around then swap it into your PC and see if you're having the same problem. If not, pull out any unnecessary RAM just to test it. There are four RAM slots on this PC and you should be able to use any one of them. If your PC turns on then you can isolate which chip is giving you problems. Keep in mind RAM is ideally installed in matched pairs.

If you only have one RAM chip in your computer then I'm afraid you will either have to buy another one or borrow one from a friend to test. Shouldn't be too expensive anyway.

Miller syncrowave 300 no power light and no weld power however have 480v input fan runs and can hear gas start when foot petal pushed


The first thing to check would be to see if you have open circuit voltage at the weld output terminals when you push the pedal. Make sure the high frequency is off if you are going to to check with a multimeter. After that if you do have OCV but no high frequency to start the arc, try it in start and in continuous. When you put it in continuous it bypasses a control relay. Also check the HF points to make sure they are clean and gapped to about ten thousandths.

Radio keeps beeping when I turn it on? I confirmed its not because of a low battery but something else.


A few thoughts:
If it is a long continuous beep this can be an indication of having the channel select set to a channel which is not programmed.

If it is a beep that only occurs when you press the PTT button, similar to the low battery beep, it could be a battery, battery contact, or internal battery contact issue. Clean battery contacts between radio and battery, as well as external contacts, with a pencil eraser to assure a good connection.

If it is a beep that occurs periodically when pressing the PTT button, it is possible your radio is programmed with busy-channel-lock-out (talk prohibit tone), which would not allow you to transmit on a frequency which is already in use.

Best regards.

5kg top washer not working, making a continuous beep sound


1) Test the voltage of machine vs the outlet wall from the house,
2) See if the frequency is 60hz or 50hz?
3) Tight the connectors very well inside, and tight any loose wires
4) Reset the machine. Turn off the c.breaker by 15 minutes, and tripped again, and Turn on again. If the problem persist you must call some service tech, the board can be faulty.
God bless you

Please help.. my monitor has no display and my don't even beep. the LED in the monitor turns back to orange after few seconds. cpu, disk drives and ram are working..


This is one of the serious problem that arises because if you set your monitor with a high resolution with high frequency, then the monitor doesn't display anything as it's frequency is out of the rang or limit of the monitor's actual resolution capacity. Each monitor will have a limit of max frequency that is said to be the Refresh rate (for each and every resolution setting the display is refreshed.) When high resolution is set with high frequency that is not supported by the monitor, it then display a message like "frequency out of range". If you press ESC key within the few seconds of this setting, it will revert back to its initial resolution. But if you continued with the setting of same High resolution with High frequency, the monitor is not going to display anything because its frequency is out of the range. Most of old monitors like CRT's etc doesn't support 1024×768 at a refresh rate greater than 60Hz.

Asus cuv4x-c problems, all capacitors is ok, im getting series of beeps (continuous beeps)


A lot more than just capacitors could be the problem. First things first, if you have a tester, test the power supply. Next is most likely memory problem. Remove the memory piece/pieces clean the contact and memory slots (blow-out with air). Reseat the memory in proper slots. While you are in there, also check that all components are seated. Re-seating the memory should correct the problem. If not, use some different memory sticks to check again. Note: Motherboards are cheap, If your power supply is OK and you are sure the memory sticks are OK, just replace the motherboard.

We just installed yesterday. Ran it with remote for about 3 hrs, on and off, tested speed, reverse, all worked. Come back 5 hrs later and go to turn it on and it does not work. Usually i hear a beep when...


The beep comes from the receiver in the fan hub. If no beep, I would suspect the receiver is not responding to the remote.

Reasons could be:

- loose connections to/from receiver or,

- with bad luck, the receiver could have failed already (loose conections could cause premature receiver failure) or,

- the fan pull-chain switch is off -- your scenario does not allow for the chain being pulled during the 5 hours the fan was not run, but who knows... or,

- receiver/remote are out of synch (set on different frequencies). Are there dip switches in receiver/remote to set frequency, or is the frequency set by the remote with a combination of button pushing? If the latter, maybe the frequencies for the two are were accidentally set out of synch...

More info, let me know...

I put in a 512MB PC-133 memory stick and all my pc does is beep 3 times when I turn it on


1). Changed ram is of high frequency so its not supporting ur motherboard, change the ram and see to its frequency (eg. pc100, pc133)
2). Or you might have wrongly attached the ram to motherboard, so ram slot might have burnt.
