Question about Dell OptiPlex GX240 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Code (Vclr) on screen and one beep then two beeps twice.

When I first power up the message comes on the screen and says I have code (Vclr) then it says there is a read/write error. If I reboot I just get one beep followed by two beeps .That will do it twice then nothing but power light and nothing on monitor.

    Computer POST and beep codes
    The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

    The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

    You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

    AMI BIOS Beep Codes
    Award BIOS Beep Codes
    Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

    I need to reset my combination to my mesa safe


    This safe was shipped with a factory Master Code of 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8.


    If you changed the Master Code you will need to use the code you changed it to.


    Deleting your current User Codes:
    Input * - * lock will beep twice
    input 6-6-6-# lock will beep twice
    Input current Master Code - # lock will beep twice
    Input user number - # lock will beep twice (not user code, user number is which user number you want to delete 1,2,3,4 or 5)
    Re-input user number - # light stays green for 3 seconds

    Example: * - * - 6 - 6 - 6 - # Master Code - # - 5 - # - 5 #
    This will delete user 5
    Unsuccessful code change: five beeps, repeat the steps.


    Changing User Codes: Code length can be 3 to 8 digits long
    Input * - * lock will beep twice
    Input 4 - 4 - 4 - # lock will beep twice
    Input Current User Code - # lock will beep twice
    Input User Number - #
    Input New User Code - # lock will beep twice
    Re-input New User Code - # light stays green for 3 seconds

    Example: * - * - 3 - 3 - 3 -# - User Code 2 - # - 2 - # -New User Code - # - New User Code - #

    That example will change user code 2.
    Unsuccessful Code Change: five beeps, repeat the steps.

    There are other things you can do with the MSL-500 lock that comes on the MFL-2014E. You can change the master code, activate user codes, change user codes, delete user codes, set single user or dual user modes (dual user modes requires two user codes to be entered each time you want to open the safe, set the time delay.

    The Mesa safe company has a website which does have the operating instructions for the MSL-500 electronic lock. A Google search of "Mesa MSL-500 Operating Instructions" would get you there quickly.

    Dell Dimension 8400 - screen goes black or just freezes, no mouse or keyboard input works. Power down and then power back up works fine for about 10 mins then same problem.


    Does the computer emit any beeps? If so, how many beeps?
    One quick loud BEEP, at start up means that all is loading OK. If you get more than one BEEP sound, than you could have Memory ( RAM ) that is, or has failed. Sometimes, if one of the internal fans has failed or is failing, a computer will start up, and than shut itsself down again. Look for any error messages that may come across the screen. Get on another computer, and search for "computer beep codes". If you have the original manual that came with the computer, sometimes it will list beep codes in it. As it has been pointed out, it could be the hard drive also, check the beep codes, that is a good place to start.

    Beep sound continus


    I went to google and it seems like the beeps can be problems for different problems in the hardware, this is what one message says,  there are lots of computer beeping answers out there: 1 short beep is your BIOS saying "HELLO I'M OK" 

    Standard Original IBM POST Error Codes 

    1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 
    2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen 
    No beep Power supply or system board problem 
    Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem 
    Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 
    1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 
    1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 
    1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 
    3 long beeps keyboard card 

    Each BIOS company has modified these codes over the years.
