Re: memory write/read error

Down load memtest from here

and follow instructions to make a bootable iso. This will test the ram to see if it is producing errors at all.

Should be able to run it for an hour without even 1 error. Any at all and ram is faulty/not setup correctly.

Post back with results and we will take from there :)

You have a bad memory stick and the computer is disabling it to allow you to run.. but at greatly reduced performance. You can buy new memory here:

1 long beep 2 short beeps

Hello Hardyjosef,
Below is the beep code chart for the mini 10 systems.
If the system does not perform a Power-On Self-Test, there are various things to look for:
1.Check that the system has a power light.
2.If the system has no power light, ensure it is plugged into AC power. Remove the battery.
3.If the system has power but is not performing a POST, Check for one of the following Beep code errors.
Beep Code Description Failure Coverage
1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure. BIOS Chip Motherboard Failure or ROM Error
2 No RAM Detected No Memory Detected
3 Chipset Error (North and South Bridge Chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel platform); Chipset Error Motherboard Failure
Time-Of-Day Clock test failure.
Gate A20 Failure
Super I/O Chip Failure
Keyboard Controller Test Failure
4 RAM Read/Write Failure Memory Failure
5 RTC Power Fail. COMS Battery Failure
6 Video BIOS Test Failure Video Card Failure
7 CPU Cache test failure CPU Failure
8 LCD LCD Failure
4.With the power off and the system unplugged, remove all CRUs from the system and reconnect the AC adapter to the system and try again.
Try reseatting the memory to see if that will resolve the issue. If not, the motherboard may be bad and will need to be replaced. If you need another motherboard you can call the Dell Spare Parts Department at 1-877-717-3355 to purchase one.

Memory write/read failure at 000510784, read EA05E805 expecting EA05E805 . To resolve try to reseat memory.


To reseat the memory modules, disconnect all cables and remove the battery. Flip the laptop and remove the memory cover (has one screw). Remove the module(s) on a slant. Reinsert in place. Replace the memory cover. Insert the battery. Connect the a/c adapter and power on.

If you receive the same error, replace the memory. Can be found on the Dell site.

Hope this helps.

Bootup error

You have a dodgy memory module in the laptop.
By the sounds of it, and the fact you can get into Windows then you will probably have 2 memory modules installed and it is probably in the second one there is an error.

If there are 2 modules in there, remove the second one and try that, then if it still fails put that one back in and remove the first.

If there is only one module in the laptop, then move it from the slot it is in to the other slot. Besure to push it in properly. There is a notch on the memory modules so they will only go in one way.

Hope that helps =)
