Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes P
c

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

I purchased 2 GB chips to try to increase the speed of my desktop. After putting in the chips my computer won't boot back up, my monitor is black and the computer is making a constant beeping nois


OK. First, I'm assuming that you have a Dell Vostro 200 as per the topic title. That said, you machine has a maximum memory capacity of 4GB. So, if you added the 2 - 2GB DIMMS in slots 3 and 4, leaving your original memory in the machine, you will have problems. You must be using DDR2 667 or 800 MHz RAM and the two DIMMS must be in slots DIMM1 and DIMM2 ( closest to the processor). No more than that can be installed.

Vostro 200 four beeps at startup then repeats; fan stays on.


Cant say for sure what the problem is, but most probably it is due to a bad RAM module. Try removing it and after removing the dust on the RAM and its slot Re-insert it. Also try cleaning up other areas with a blower too. It should workout.

How do I get my Vostro to boot from disk instead of HD It has been password protected and I do not have the password.


Turn on your compter and repeatedly press F2 (or F12) to enter the BIOS set-up. When you get to the BIOS, change the order of the start-up to read from your disk first.

Good luck!
