SOURCE: dell vostro 200 4 repeated beeps on start up

Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes P
c

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

There could be a hardware problem on the computer if the power button led light is "Orange/ or amber", if you can open the computer, try removing one memory card at a time and see if the power button will change.

SOURCE: Vostro 200 won't go to startup

The 4 beeps suggests a memory issue. If you open the case and pop the memory modules out and then reinsert them it may clear the problem. One way to check if an individual memory stick is bad is to reboot as you put them in one by one.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: dell vostro 200 4 beeps then with f2 starts

here is the explanation of what can be possibly wrong,
1 long, 2 short - Video adapter error: Bad or improperly seated video card
Repeating beeps Memory error: Bad or improperly seated RAM
1 long, 3 short-Bad video RAM or video card not present
4 short Keyboard communication failure: Bad keyboard controller or keyboard

This is what the typical explanation is. To avoid assumption, i will need info on *********** board...thanks,

SOURCE: Flashing green light by power

From your description this is a motherboard issue, in order to narrow down the problem unhook the hardware one at a time, swap the ram out to make sure it is okay, next if you have a video graphics card plugged into the motherboard remove it, if none of these remedy the situation it is more than likely the motherboard.

Dell VOSTRO 460 beeps during startup and will not startup.


many times if the fan over the cpu chip on the motherboard fails to run or blow, an beeping alarm will begin and PC will not start. the cpu has to be kept cool so if fan fails the startup is stopped. have found lose wire connections from fan to motherboard terminal, or power supply may be blown, try checking those first. if nothing lose then wiggle those wires to see if the fan starts.

I have a vostro 200 desktop, in which i installed a gigabit ethernet card to help speed up our office network. unfortunately it did not power on immediately after this. i am on carpet, but had grounded...


You seem to have hit the nail on the head. It seems like you shorted either the PSU or the motherboard. Fortunately, if it was the PSU, there is a fuse which would've protected your other hardware. If you managed to short the mobo, you're looking at purchasing a new one from the manufacturer or a thirdparty. I personally believe you fried the motherboard, however; it is unlikely the fans would spin at all if the PSU was shot. Good luck, and remember to use latex gloves when handling these things; I've often done the same thing.

Solid orange light on my vostro 200


If your fans come on full blast then you have a bad motherboard. If the amber light blinks, you have a bad power supply.
