I have a dell inspiron 545. I lost my display and the computer now beeps four times, pauses and beeps four more times. Can you tell me what happened to my computer?


This is normally a memory error. Turn off the computer, and open the side of the case. Pull and re-seat all memory chips. Turn power on, if it still beeps. Turn off power, pull all the memory chips and re-seat one only. Turn on power if it beeps againg, pull the chip out and try the other one. Repeat for all chips. If you find any that do not cause the beep issue, you have found your bad memory chip. If not, try the same one at a time memory test in a different slot on the computer. If no beeps, then its a bad slot and dont use that memory slot.

If none of this works; as unlikely as it seems you could have all bad memory chips, or a bad mother board.

3 beeps are heard when I start my computer


This is a BEEP CODE telling you that the computer cannot POST, check all ardware (RAM, PCI cards etc...) take out every thing you can leaving just the minimum (mother board, CPU and power) than put stuff back in one at a time and reboot each time you put in something (starting with the RAM) again one RAM module at a time... until you find the defective component...

Good luck!

Does the computer beep when you turn it on? If so, count the beeps and google it. Something like "computer beep 3 times at post" or similar.

If it does not beep, remove all buy one of your memory chips. (mind your static charge, keep in touch with your computer case so you don't fry your mobo or memory) Will the system post with only one chip? If not, try all of your memory chips one at a time. Post now? If so, you can narrow down the issue.

If this doesn't work, remove all of the cards. (video, sound, network, etc) Turn the computer back on. If it still does not beep, it is very likely that the CPU is the culprit, with a slight left field chance of it being the power supply.

Re seat your RAM and any other cards that plug into the Mother Board such as PCI cards then try starting the computer again. If that doesn't fix it, then you can uninstall devices and try to boot until you find the culprit, as those beeps you hear sound like hardware error beeps that can be caused by faulty hardware (even keyboards or mice) that plug into your computer. Eliminating all removable hardware should help you determine whether it's an add on component or if the Mother Board itself is bad.
Good luck

EMachine T3406 wont boot


is there a post beep when the pc is switched on. check the memory if it is a beep beep beep sound , also disconect the hard drive, dvd drive, floppy, and any usb devices and see if it boots up. if that fails it does seem like the mother board, also check the cpu fan has it stoped. also find out the power switch conector on the mother board, from the base unit switch to the mother board. also chech the power connector from the power supply to the mother board , on newer boards there are two that go to the mother board its self , a big one and a very small one .
