HI there,

The beeping sound means that you either have a problem on the video card or in the unit memory module(RAM memory).

First try to remove, clean contact of each part and resit it again on it's slot.

Also better try to check and test it using a different memory module, and video card.

But you can first test the memory module, as I know that the problem that you have right now.

Let me know and update me again here.

I'm trying to recover my system, but everytime I push F11 to get to the System Recovery Manager, I get a repeating Beep.


That sounds like it might be "POST" code beeping out at you. If it goes beep beep beep (pause) beep beep (pause), or something like that, etc.... then it is definitely a POST code. It can be anything from a bad or unseated video card, to a loose memory DIMM card.

The computer's BIOS chip is hardwired to a dedicated speaker, if something goes wrong (like your video card is roached), it beeps out a series of beeps (not unlike Morris code). Check the manufacture's website, see what BIOS your model is using (AMI, PHOENIX, ETC..), and then look up their website to interpret the code you are getting. The computer Mfg.'s manual might also have that BIOS POST code information in it too.

Please give more detailed information about the beeping sequence. Like, does it ONLY beep after pressing the F11 key once, or because your holding it down (keyboard buffer is full then). Are the beeps continuous, or are their pauses between beeps (if pauses, count number of beeps between pauses until it repeats, usually has a long pause before it repeats if BIOS POST CODE). Also, did something happen just prior to your computer going belly up, or did it just not want to turn on one day? Give as much information as possible (make, model, OS, etc) about your computer, and what its symptoms are. The more info I have, the better I can help you.

THE RED LIGHT IS ON AND BEEPS EVERY MINUTE


What motherboard do you have? If you don't know, provice make and model of your system and maybe we can find out that way. Is it one long beep? Are there any other beeps and/or a sequence. A good place to start and alot of times, depending on your bios, 1 to 3 beeps means a problem with the RAM(memory). If you have more than 1 stick, you can pull them out, restart and if the beep is the same, you've probably found your culprit. You can then insert one at a time in one of your slots, then restart. If this works, you've found a good stick. If not, try another slot and restart, etc. Try all sticks in all slots.

A beeping noise came on and the air bag light does not come on


If you are hearing a series of 5 beeps, 5 beeps and then a pause and it repeats, the airbag light is burnt out, and there is an error that the LFC ( light Flash Code ) needs to report.

Pull the cluster, and replace the airbag light, and then pay attention to the LFC that will be given ( example, 1 flash short pause, 8 flashes, slightly longer pause, then repeat the 1-8 pattern again, jsut as an example ).

When I go to turn on the computer, it just makes a beeping sound.


Beeping sound leting you something is wrong with some hardware. As for what,, listin to the beeps.. also depends on motherboard... here is a link http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml

But best way is to open up machine and make sure all the hardware is hooked up tight. If that does work look at the code list then go from there.

GLW10US won't do anything but beep


the error you are describing is a communication problem between the display module and the motor control module. unfortunately there is no test to determine which it is. most common is the motor control or RPS (rotor position sensor)

Chuck,
The 6 beeps are an error code. You should note a pattern such as 3 beeps, short pause, 1 beep, short pause, 2 beeps. Also, you may have a set of 4 error indicators on the back of the unit that will show a pattern of green and yellow lights. In any case, you will want to try to run the Dell diagnostics. Let us know the beep pattern and the light pattern and we should be able to give you some more specific information.
