Apple has a variety of 'beeps' (sound) and 'blinks' (lights) for both computers and monitors. Your 3 beeps (wild guessing here) could be as noted in this link below ... which will also steer you in the right direction. Note too, that blinking lights - can have a pattern (3 blinks: short-short-long, for example). These also have specific diagnostic meanings and you might make a note before searching.

Link to some ref on blinks and beeps is here (a paste follows this note too):

For future reference:

Power-On Self-Test Beep Definition - Part 1 - http://support.apple.com/kb/TA43884

Power On Self-Test Beep Definition - Part 2 - http://www.info.apple.com/kbnum/n58442

The power on self-test resides in the ROM of the computer. This test runs whenever the computer is turned on after being fully shut down (the power-on self-test does not run if the computer is only restarted).

If a fault is detected during the test, you will not hear a normal startup chime. Instead, the system will beep as explained below. If you experience one of these beeps, you may call your Apple Authorized Service Provider for additional troubleshooting assistance.

1 beep = no RAM installed
2 beeps = incompatible RAM types
3 beeps = no good banks
4 beeps = no good boot images in the boot ROM (and/or bad sys config block)
5 beeps = processor is not usable

In addition to the beeps, on some computers the power LED will flash a corresponding number of times plus one. The LED will repeat the sequence after approximately a 5-second pause. The tones are only played once.

You can also run Apple Hardware test from your original installer disc. Sometimes with RAM it is just easier to pull units and test them individually.

When i turned on switch dell vostro 230 it give no display and led colour is red


No Display, so does it seem like the computer booted up and is running except that the Display is black? Do you hear fans running, disk drive spinning, blinking lights or beeps?

I'm going to assume that in your case since you mentioned a red light that it is not booting up all the way. Therefore your problem is probably with the memory, the video card or some other motherboard issue.

Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

D100l has blinking caps lock


Give us more details if you want help. Blinking Caps when? When you boot up? Is it booting all the way so you can use the computer?

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Long beeps at startup and won't boot up


What is the pattern of the long beeps? one long beep or two long beeps, three long beeps?

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Boot problem


You would need to note whether the 8 blinks are in a specific order; this is probably equivalent to beep codes and the spacing (grouping) of the beeps/blinks may tell you what problem you are having (other than having clumsy buddies).
Check to see if they are grouped in some recognizable manner such as 3-3-2 and then you would have to check with Acer to decode the sequence. Depending on whose BIOS is installed in your model, the 8 blinks equally spaced may be valid too and tell you the nature of the problem.. 
An example of the 'beep' codes can be seen here, midway down the page:

Booting up


one light is for hardrive activity , the other is to show the power is on.. the flashing one is most likely the power light as most computers will tell you when thier ill....the beeping is an error code and should be in some pattern EG: Power LED blinks red twice, once a second, followed by a two second pause. Or something like that. Take note of the pattern and repost it here, then we can give you a specific area to look at.
