How long has this been going on. My reaction - from experience - is that your line voltage is actually falling below the threshhold of your UPS's, so their kicking in temporarily.

Usp's need a full 118 - 125 volts to be beep free. for instance that beep if you look at them crooked if the plugged into an inverter ,, like in a camper.

The may be something in your houe/building/down the street that has a big motor in it which takes the voltage down for a fraction of a second. That's all you'd need! Since all 6 do this it has to be the problem. If all 6 are failing THE SAME WAY, AT THE SAME TIME, you need to start playing the lottery! What do you think?

How can I get my computer out of safe mode?


With the machine unplugged from the wall remove the battery from the motherboard. Then with the machine still unplugged press the On button for 30 seconds to dissipate any remaining electrical charge on the motherboard. Then re-install the battery, plug the machine back into the wall and see if it will boot normally.

Everytime i start up the computer it beeps 3-4 times, and the monitor says vga input not connected...whats could be the problem?


here are the beep codes for your exact dell model. this should give you a starting point on finding out what the problem is.

Beep Codes Your computer might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the monitor cannot display errors or problems. This series of beeps, called a beep code, identifies a problem. One possible beep code (code 1-3-1) consists of one beep, a burst of three beeps, and then one beep. This beep code tells you that the computer encountered a memory problem.
Reseating the memory modules may fix the beep code errors in the following table. If the problem persists, see "Contacting Dell" in your Owner's Manual for instructions on obtaining technical assistance.
Code
Cause
1-3-1 through 2-4-4
Memory not being properly identified or used
4-3-1
Memory failure above address 0FFFFh

Six beeps at post and no joy with boot up


The exact meaning of the beeps for Dell depends on their... rhythm.

Six beeps might indicate a simple CMOS failure caused by a bad battery, which is easy to replace.

Computer Wont respond after the RAM was switched. 6 beeps.


Hello

The beep code you are getting is faulty ram. There really is not anything you can do to fix this yourself. Sorry

Best regards

Power pack beeping, no lights turning on


Unfortunately your laptop is suffering from hardware failure. You may try removing the battery and using only the power cord.If this solves the problem then you either have a defective battery or bad power circuitry on your laptop. Aside from that if its still under warranty sending it to Toshiba for repairs will be your safest and cheapest option.

Desktop freezes up so often or gets logout by itself & reboot?!


This could be a couple of things, overheating may cause it to randomly shut down, but if it freezes up on you then it could be a motherboard issue or memory. When you boot up your computer, does it beep at you at all? More than 1 beep signifies a problem. Right click on the my computer icon and click properties, see how much memory it says you have, does that number look accurate? A bad memory module could cause similar problems. A bad motherboard would, in my experience, more often freeze when you first boot up.

Random Power Loss on Dell XPS 600


Possible reasons for random rebooting:
1. CPU Fan/Heatsink is loose Restarting due to Overheat Prevention. Im guessing the processor is LGA775. if u can open up the case and see if any of the four plugs and sockets has come loose, then that might be it.

2. Not Enougth power from PSU (Power Supply Unit). if it was built for gaming im explecting a PSU of at least 750Watts

3. Harware malfunction. When booting up, any error beeps?

4. Software error. Before logging in a user account, leave the computer on for a while if nothing happens then most likely be OS problem.

Your best bet is to reinstall Windows

System does not start


Try pressing F2 or Del to get into bios and see if the system time and date are correct. if not the cmos disc shaped battery found on the motherboard may need replacing. You can also reset the bios by locating the 'JBAT1' terminal on the mobo and put the jumper cap from pins1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds, then back across pins 1-2 again, and reset time and date next time you boot up the pc. Although, i recon the continues beep noise can refer to a processor fault but trying the above is the cheaper first step to take, good Luck
