Did you get the new motherboard from Dell?
Are you sure the memory is compatable with your new motherboard?

Is the processor properly placed with thermal grease, and CPU fan secure?

Are all the fans working?

When rebuilding a computer all these things are paramount, and one must know what they are doing.

My hp 5750 beeps 4 times what seems to be the problem??? thank u


This means that your memory is bad or not installed correctly. Open your pc up and remove all memory from the mother board, then dust it, place the memory back in and it should work. If you still have this problem, leave only 1 memory stick in and try starting up your pc, if your pc starts up then the other memory stick is bad and you will need to replace it, if your pc still does not start, remove the 1st memory stick and put the 2nd memory stick in its place and try booting once again. If this still does not fix it, then the memory slots might be bad, try putting the memory sticks in different memory slots and each time try booting your pc. If this does not work, try buying new ram, worst case scenario you will have to replace the motherboard. Or just replace the computer if both memory slots are bad on the motherboard, and i mean IF. Good luck!

Monitor says check signal checked the monitor on another computer works fine changed mother board same problem only things still left memory and hd and dvd rom drive.


The problem is something you have recently changed( i.e. new memory, processor, video card) does not agree with your board. Good place to start is to remove ALL memory sticks and pci adapters and try it then. Try one component at atime and start putting them back in. Restart and run every time you put something new in thew board. Hope this helps

Hello edwardfuller:

Do the same as you did, only this time remove all plug in boards and if there is anything connected to the mother board such as extra fans, speakers, and so on, remove all.
The board will detect any shorts, or overloads or problems in cards and so on , and will not turn on.

If it still will not work, check your memory sticks.
Remove all memory and place one at a time in the first slot, and then proceed to turn on and test.
By elimination, you can find the problem.
If all fails, then something may be wrong with the mother board.
take care, hope this will help,
