Re: alarm

Hi it could be the RAM is loose to fix this open tower discharge static by touching frame of computer...push down on stick of RAM untill the white clips on either end close fully and lock on either end of ram you will probably hear it clicking or else if your windows icons come up it could be the disc drive has a loose connection push in the power supply and the connection to the drive known as IDE cable ( wide ribbon) or SATA (slim connection) and make sure the end of the IDE or SATA connection which ever connection it has is pushed into motherboard fully ....hope this was of some help best of luck

Re: alarm

Depending on how many bleeps you hear..indicates a problem..or a key could be stuck on your keyboard..ctrl alt and delete is only to shut down or restart your pc..and the brains of your pc is not your tower but your processor...if your pc is running normal after start up then the problem is small. if your still having this problem let me know how many bleeps you hear or if its a contuinuios bleeping it sounds like a doggie keyboard..

Re: alarm

Beeps usually indicate something is not plugged in or a program is not running properly for 'whatever' reason...r there any errors on your screen? If not, does it continue to beep after window icons have loaded? If so, try typing ctrl/alt/delete (at same time) to see if an apllication continues to run b4 it shuts down... If so, note that program application file, as you may need to delete that program and reload it to solve your 'beep'. Had a similar problem with my Canon fax/scanner/printer...Hope this helps.....DayGirl48

My tower turns on and makes this consistent beeping sound. And nothing shows on the screen.

I believe from my own past that the beeping sound is an over-heating alarm, and that you need to get more fans installed inside. Try taking off the door to your tower, and point a fan in on it and turn off the computer, wait about 5 minutes with the fan set to high to see if that solves your problem. If it doesn't then I suggest you take it in to the shop or wait for some more possible answers on here.

Hope this helps!

I have a dell optiplex sx280 computer and monitor that has lapsed into ''power save mode'' and I have been unable to ''awaken'' it (I'm not sure which is ''asleep'': the monitor or computer!) from sleep. I...

How's the status light of your computer monitor? is it blinking amber? and the status light of your computer tower's power button? blinking amber as well or solid green or no light at all?

1. Disconnect all the connection at the back of your computer tower
2. Press the power button of the computer tower for 15 seconds
3. Reconnect the power button and the monitor cable at the back of your computer tower and turn on the computer (if it turned on that means that one of the device plugged at the back of your computer tower is faulty)
4. If still the same problem, open up your computer tower.
5. Reseat the video card, Reseat Hard drive, Reseat Memory, Reseat CPU, Reseat power cord coming from the CPU to your computer (doing all things one-by-one to pin-point the root cause of the issue)

If none of the troubleshooting steps fixed the problem, possible that the power supply is faulty and if the power supply is faulty sometimes it goes with the motherboard.

Dell Dimension 5150 automatically turns off

That flashing amber light is usually a sign the power supply is failed or is failing. I would suspect the power supply is the problem in yours. It is the better of the two problems connected with the flashing amber light..the other is motherboard is failing. Arrrr!
hope this helps (it takes a standard- oh say 350 watt 20-24 pin power supply unit.)
Hope an answer helps.
Please leave rating, thankyou

I just install a upgrade of memory for my Compaq S4020WM, after I installed everything. I turned on my computer. My monitor doesn't come on, also, there is a beeping sound coming from inside the tower,...

It is because of the new memory. Take out the memory and re-boot. If it boots ok, then it's the memory that you installed.
Also, you may not have it seated into the slot rght. Try reseating it again and re-boot. If it does the same thing ,I would return the memory.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Alarm goes off when it starts up

The alarm is a BIOS alarm. It is warning you of either a cooling fan failure or the processor getting too hot. Either way, you need to fix the problem, not just ignore it!

I would check that all the fans are running correctly and would also recommend that you give the insides of your computer case a clean out - you'll be amazed at how much dust can build up in there! This may well cure the problem.

If it is a processor temperature alarm, rather than turning it off, you may want to adjust it so it doesn't sound until a higher temp. is reached. You can adjust this from the BIOS screen, but I would check the maximum temp. that your processor is designed to run at before doing so.

To get to the BIOS screen to turn it off, press the delete key (repeatedly) while the machine is booting.

I can't tell you exactly when to find it in the BIOS, as this can vary from one computer to the next. Just navigate you way around until you find the relevant section.

**** WARNING ****

Changing settings in the BIOS can affect the computers performance, prevent it from starting, or even cause permanent damage to hardware. Unless you know exactly what you're doing, I wouldn't recommend changing things!

Hope this helps,
