That my Friend is the Yellow Light of Death, anyway turn on Your PC, as it starts You will here some beeps especially on a Dells. Count the beeps , there will be a slight pause so it will beep once then pause then beep again. Count the beeps and that will be Your code. Go to Dell Support site and look up code. Most of the time a Yellow amber light means that there is trouble with Your Motherboard but thats not to say its the Motherboard itself, during a power outage with no surge protected, it could have possibly burned out Your RAM, Processor, Heat fan, even the power supply itself. So look up the code and at least You'll have a better chance of finding the solution, Good Luck

Different beep codes mean different things.

in anycase though, this means you have a hardware problem.

contant single tone beeping could be a CPU chip problem, and might need a tech to look into the problem.

FYI, 2 quick beeps is a good code usually, which usually = FF - no errors.

the codes are from 01 (one long Tone) which might be VGA (video) card problem.

you really need to check the user manual for the BIOS error codes

The POWER LED on the front of the tower should be solid Green, If Solid Amber or Flashing Amber, there is either a power or MB problem. On the back of the tower are 4 LEDs the when posting normally are all Green. If YYGG for example, then you have a memory failure. More information can be found at support.dell.com using the no post troubleshooter

There's a sound during startup


Hello,

There is no problem with your computer. It's just natural to have a beeping sound during start up. If there is, then it will show an error message in the screen.

If it's just a short beep, then it's normal.

T61 won't go past the Microsoft loading screen


Press F8 during boot, and load Safe Mode. A program may be preventing a proper startup.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.


This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

Dell beep code meanings


If an error occurs during startup that cannot be reported on the monitor, your computer may emit a beep code that identifies the problem. The beep code is a pattern of sounds: for example, one beep, followed by a second beep, and then a burst of three beeps (code 1-1-3) means that the computer was unable to read the data in NVRAM.
YOu can find complete table on Dell support site.

Most of such errors can be fixed with a system utility software RegInOut

No video just keeps beeping


Note down the beep rhythm. The table of Dell "Beep Codes" will tell you what's wrong in the computer (could me memory, CPU, bus, or video card).

My screen goes blank immediately after initial DELL startup image


You can either try to reset the BIOS, or have the restore cd fix it for you. By the way, what does the message say?
