If you think you're having a memory problem, you have these options:
1. Re-seat the memory chips and make sure they're in the socket correctly.
2. Go to www.Dell.com/support. They have diagnostics that will test Memory and all systems in your PC and show you what might be wrong.
3. You can run a memory Clean or defragmentation yourself. Go to Start, then Computer, then right click the C drive and select "Properties" then look for "Clean Memory" and/or "Tools" to do the "defrag".
Hope this helps.

Inspiron 531s beeps twice pause then again, upgraded memory


That is a memory parity error. You either put memory in that is not compatible with the computer or you added a stick of memory that is not compatible with that which is already in the computer.

Inspiron 531s will not boot up, keeps beeping, saying it is in power save mode. How do I fix the problem


System Beep Codes The Inspiron™ 531 / 531s system can emit a series of beeps during start-up if the display cannot show errors or problems. These series of beeps, called beep codes, identify various problems. One possible beep code consists of repetitive three short beeps. This beep code indicates the computer encountered a possible system board failure.
The series of beeps has a 3-second delay before it repeats. The series and delays continually loop until you press the power button.
Code Description Suggested Remedy 1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure System board failure; covers BIOS corruption or ROM error 2 No memory modules detected
  1. If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
  2. If available, install a good memory module of the same type into the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
3 Chipset error (North and Southbridge chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel® platform); chipset error System board failure. Power LED is blinking amber. Time-Of-Day Clock test failure Gate A20 failure Super I/O chip failure Keyboard controller test failure 4 RAM read/write failure
  1. Ensure no special memory module/memory connector placement requirements exist.
  2. Verify the memory modules you are installing are compatible with the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
5 Real time clock failure. Possible battery failure or system board failure.
  1. Replace the battery.
  2. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
6 Video BIOS test failure Video card failure 7 CPU cache test failure Processor failure

Memory card slot


The Dell Inspiron 531s does not come with a memory card reader slot.

This is Dell's specifications on the Inspiron 531s,

http://www.dell.com/us/en/dfh/desktops/inspndt_53xs/pd.aspx?refid=inspndt_53xs&s=dfh&cs=22

Left-click on the Tech Specs tab.

You could use a memory card reader that attaches to any of the computers USB ports.
Here is an example,

Scrolling down the page, shows you an animated gif of this memory card reader.
