My dell inspiron 531 PC just keeps beeping and will not boot up!

The beeping is called a beep code, you may be able to check the connections on the inside but only if you know what you're doing. You will most likely have to take it in the be serviced.

Hi i got a ( dell Inspiron vista ) that i cant fix because of a virus - my question is can i use the memory board from that to put in my dell Dimension B110 dell system with XP home edition?

It all depends, if your dell inspiron vista (you didnt wrote the model) uses DDR2 memory you cant, because the B110 uses DDR memory modules (it's an older system). Probably your dell comes with DDR2.

Try system restore if it works normally after this also turn system restore off and back on again as the problem could also lie in system restore information.

32 bit IE won't connect to internet in Vista 64 bit.

32 bit programs, last I checked, won't work in a 64 bit operating system, just as 64 bit won't work in 32 bit operating systems.

If 32 bit programs will work in a 64 bit OS, they probably won't work properly.
