Rear LEDS are labled A through D and can change from green to yellow. Some typical LED reading might be:
A - yellow, B - yellow, C - green, D - green <-- Indicates a problem with the RAM.
A - yellow, B - green, C - yellow, D - green <-- Indicates a problem with the video card.
Refer to the Dell website for your specific model, as these lights can vary from model to model.

Gateway GM5442 PC Desktop Won't Boot!


3 BEEPS -RAM

Guest Posts: n/a 01-24-2005 We had a power failure in the office this weekend. All the systems are back
up and running fine, except for the receptionists. It's a Gateway
Professional Series. P4 1.3 Ghz. It is giving me three beeps. No boot up
screen and no video source (monitor light stays yellow instead of turning
green). I looked up the beep code and it says three beeps means the ram
needs reseated. Which I have done several times. Also, I have just put in
one stick in difference seats. I have also reseated all the cards at least
three times. I have switched the jumper to try to boot into setup mode.
Nothing there either. Popped out the cmos battery and put it back in. No
good either.

Has all the ram been fried? The fan on the cpu is still spinning. The cd-rom
ejects. I can't hear the hard drive spinning. I guess I can swap the hard
drive for a different one.

Anything I'm missing? YEP

Dell Inspiron N5030 refuses to boot. When it is turned on, the ON LED light stays on for a minute & goes off. There is no display on the screen. But when it is plugged to A/C, it stays on for a while...


The first thing to check for is loose ram, battery, a loose hard drive or any loose cards.
Pop the cover off the bottom, reseat the ram battery and hard drive and try booting again.

If that does not work try booting off a copy of Puppy linux on a live CD. Puppy runs only in ram and will allow you to bypass a bad hard drive to get a system running. Puppy also has system testing tools that you can check your hard drive with.

System unit led is yellow and start good condiotion but no signal


The light on the LCD screen stays yellow?

I would start with puling out the ram chips and see if it works,

If you get some beeps and video works with ram chips out, then its a bad ram chip.

If thats not it.. unplug all cards cd/dvd rom and harddrive to test motherboard and CPU chip. see if you can get video to work with everthing but cpu and power suppy unpuged

Screen will not come on hard drive light no light checked power supply is ok


Things to check:
  1. Power led on the front of the tower, it should be solid green when on. Flashing Amber is generally an indication of a bad power supply inside the tower
  2. Power LED Solid AMBER indicates system is not finishing the power on self test (POST) and you remove all connections from the tower except power and try turning on again. If no change, remove all PCI and PCI-E cards from system, try again, no change replace motherboard.
  3. On the back of the tower are 4 diagnostic LEDs near the ps2 ports marked ABCD, after the POST, during a normal boot the will flash in several sequences and with boot is finished all 4 should be green. If they stop an a different pattern, then that indicates a failure Yellow Yellow Green Green indicate bad RAM for example
  4. If the LEDs on front and back are Green then the system appears to be booting but the monitor display is not functional

No boot up, display, beep, or HD action


I am having the same issue. Clearing/reset the bios will get the board to boot up, but when turned off and started again the board will not boot. you will have to clear the bios again. The board seems to be rebooting itself continuously before it evens get to the POST.

Packard Bell Imedia 1402 wont boot up


you did not install the new Hdd properly, the part of the ribbon cable with colour should be by the side of the power connector and the power connector should be connected with the red cble by the side of the colour on the ribbon cable.
