Dell 1745 studio laptop beep code 434


This is either a RAM issue or the betteri on the motherboard which is dead.

Try to replace the RAM first (not the cheapest but the easiest to do), if you still have the same issue replace the time battery on the motherboard

Here are 2 links to help you:

Inspiron 5000e adapter where does it go

If you mean the power adapter plug, that connection is on the right side of the laptop near the back of the machine. It's between the PC Card slot and an air intake. For pictures of other connections/ports on the Dell Inspiron 5000e, see and scroll down.

I hope this helps.

Access to motherboard of an old Dell Inspiron 5000 to remove unknown bios password. Thanks

To reset the BIOS read the information from this link.

In case of a laptop the easiest method would be using software from Hiren's Boot CD as it's pretty hard to open it up and reach for the CMOS battery or the jumper.

How do I fix my Dell Latitude D610? The problem is: whenever I turn on my laptop, only the scroll lock light blinks 10 times and the screen stays blank. Any solutions?

HI There,

The ten blinks is the Dell Error Code for RAM problems. Your laptop's RAM is easily accessible. Usually, your laptop will have 2 sticks of RAM in 2 slots just under a small black cover with 2 screws on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes, 1 stick will go bad and cause the laptop to be unable to boot up. By taking out both sticks and only putting one back each time, you can often find the culprit. One stick will run the laptop just fine and one won't let it start at all. It's also possible that both have gone bad and you may end up having to buy at least one new one (stick of RAM) to make sure.

In these circumstances, most laptop repair guys (like me) would also take out and reseat the hard drive, wireless card, dvd/cd player as well.
If you haven't done this sort of thing before, find a friend who has or study the your laptop's Service Manual at the Dell Support site and decide whether you're ok with trying yourself. Don't go purely by the manual alone. Google every procedure you're going to try and find forums where others explain little tricks to look out for.

Be Well

My dell inspiron will not boot it says no bootable device found

Hi, try pressing the ESC key during bootup, this will allow you to boot in safe mode, from where you can reset your operating system to a time before the problem started.
If this dosn't help come back to me for help on re installing operating system.

Dell D600 won't boot

I am sure Not the CPU or fan problem. Follow the below step to repair it.
1. Just press the power button 5 seconds or more to see the laptop can reboot or not. 2. replug the memory modules. 3. maybe the power supply device failed that the electronic volt is not enough to boot the laptop. Just replace a new Dell latitude d600 battery power supply.

Will windows 7 run on dell5000e

I wouldn't. In theory, it could install it with enough HDD space, but in practice it would not be productive, would no doubt take more than 5mins just to boot up, and God knows how long to open any program.

Id upgrade to something from at least 2004/2005 then install windows 7 on that, something with at least 2gb of RAM.

Hope this helps in some way
