Re: Dell Precision Workstation 670

The 3 beeps is an indicator of, most likely, a memory fault. This could be caused by incorrect memory configuration (unsupported RAM type or speed), not fully seated RAM, or the RAM itself has been damaged in some way. Best advice I can give to you is to open your case and verify that all Memory Modules are fully seated and locked into position. If they are, next step would be to remove all but 1 chip, and try turning it on. If it turns on, then one that you removed is the culprit, if not, that particular module may be the culprit and change it for another. If, after all memory modules tried has not allowed the computer to start, I would recommend taking it to a service center to be checked, as they would be able to verify the MB has not gone bad with using a module they know to be good.

Hope this helps!

PC will not start

This sounds like a memory error, can you define the beeps. There is a thing called a "beep code" on all motherboards, the website for the motherboard defines what the beeps mean. For example: one long beep followed by two short beeps of continous spaced beeps without a break. chris

Dell Precision Workstation 670 has no video on screen.

Support for ISV-certified PCI Express graphics cards up to 150 watts and with up to 512MB graphics memory including: nVIDIA® Quadro® FX 4500;
nVIDIA Quadro FX 3450; Quadro FX 1400; ATI™ FireGL™ V3100; nVIDIA Quadro NVS 280; All graphics cards support dual monitor configurations
Although it may not be your video card thats the problem. when youre computers posts, it beeps once. If it is beeping more then once youll want to check with the board manufacturer to see what the code its giving means.

Have you tried a differnt video card?  Also disconnect everything including the hard drive to see if the system will POST.  If it does, them start connecting 1 item at a time.
