Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer
4 beeps of equal lenght suggest that system timer is not working, you
need to change cmos battery on your computer. If you are game, that is how
you change CMOS battery on your computer, takes about 5min, required tool is phillips screwdriver:
1. Switch off computer, remove power cord
2. Remove left hand cover (this is cover which is on lyour left while you stand in front of the computer)
3. As you look at computer "gizzards" on right hand on the motherboard you will see silver battery about nickel size, it is located in this computer about three finger width from the bottom of the motherboard and about 1 1/2 finger width from right edge of the motherboard. Unlatch it and remove it. Purchase exactly same battery, be it in drugstore or hardware store.
4. Slide in new battery, + is up, towards you.
5. Mount back side cover
6. Re-connect your power cable and start the computer
You most probablay will need to re-program BIOS as all information is lost when this particular battery die.
This should solve your CMOS batery problem. Of course you can send your laptop to the technician but that will be no fun at all... ;-)
