Hi,

Vista is available in 32 and 64 bit os.
if your system ran xp which was most likely 32 bit. And you have installed a 64 bit version os.
this will be your problem, also Vista requires more system RAM/Memory to run it.
If you get 1 beep at startup, it states the system is ok.
Alternatives are device drivers incompatability.
Check M$ website, regarding vistas minimum system requirements.

SOURCE: My xps 420 pc desktop wont boot. Shut it down last

Try and reset your CMOS and see if it helps.

If you're not sure how, then unplug the power cable from your PC, then take off the side panel, on the motherboard is a set of 2 or 3 pins to Clear the CMOS (reset the BIOS) all boards are different, so there is no set location for the CMOS pins, if you're unsure, just remove the battery from the motherboard for about 30 seconds, then replace it ("+" facing up)

But you need to make sure your PS is not plugged into any external power source while you're doing this or you risk deleting your BIOS

Hope this helps in some way.

SOURCE: dell gx 520 long beeps and unable boot display?What's your problem?

Usually the beeps ore associated with ram memory failure ..or video card not being well plugged or being faulty ..To stat check the ram memory ..Just remove them all ..(if you have more modules) ..and after that insert one by one and try to boot ..If it still makes the same noise (beep ) and each one ..it means the ram is ok ..and the fault from other way ..If it starts with only one one ..it means the other is faulty ..Anyway ..usually the ram memory does not damage itself ..but most likely does not make contact well ..so plug them well back in the slot and try again ..
If it always make that beep ..try to see if you have a pci or agp or video card ..and if you do ..remove the card and post it back ..Usually if you remove it and you have a on board card ..you can already boot up if the card is faulty ..and use the card on board until you get another card ..
(the idea is that for the ram fault the beep is short and in some kinda loop ..but if it starts the fan and keep beeping it is the video card to blame .It is either out of slot and does not making contact well or is damaged and need to be replaced.

Why doesn't my Dell XPS 8500 boot up?


hold the power button in for a count of 8 and it should shut all the way down. Then try and turn it back on

If it still does not boot, do you still have a warranty? Could be motherboard gone bad. Usually if it is memory or video your will hear beeps

Beep codes on dell xps one 2010


If I understand your issue, it sounds like the display works fine until it loads Windows, and then it has the error? It sounds to me like the video card drivers are crashing. This may be the case if you have recently updated them, or installed a new video card. I would recommend getting the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website on a CD, SD card, or USB drive, and then boot your computer in safe mode. Once in safe mode, install the new drivers, and see if that will help. You could also try using your onboard (integrated) video card if your motherboard has one. This could help rule out if the monitor is at fault. Just make sure your BIOS has the integrated card as a secondary video device if it the (I'm assuming PCIex16) peripheral card isn't found.

Dell xps laptop lcd screen black


Hi,

If you have an external monitor, try connecting the laptop to it, then toggle FN+F8 to project display from lalaptop to external monitor.

If the external monitor does not have a display aswell (totally blank) , then its a problem with the video card.

You can also run an LCD Bist test by turning off the system , then while the system is turned off press D + power , If you dont hear a beep but no display at all, then its an LCD problem.


Hope this helps

Thanks

John, pull the power cord and leave the system off for 30seconds. Then reconnect and attempt to power on the system. If it still doesn't boot then listen to hear if there are error beeps.
