Dell optiplex desktop Beeps 6 times. It started beeping all of a sudden, rebooted and that's all it will do. You can hear the HDD spinning at very high speed. No monitor and no response to anything. Anyone have an idea?

THe beeps are a Hardware failure warning. It can be quite a few different things such as motherboard, memory or keyboard. Your easiest solution would be to take your computer to a repair shop that offers diagnostics to test your hardware.

Optiplex 330, fails to POST and locks


When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer.

Optiplex 330 beeps 6 times, no display


It could be that either the graphics card or the memory modules may need to be re-seated. Those would be the first things to try.

I have dell optiplex gx 150 beeps 6 times and a and b led is amber and c and d led is green


the 6 beep codes will be in a specific timing i.e. two beeps, a space 2 more beeps, and another space and 2 more beeps.

Looks like it may be a memory problem according to the lights.

Reseat all DIMMs and restart the system to retest.
