the LED indication is a Memory failure. Make sure when inserting RAM that the power is unplugged and you press and hold the power button till all power is discharged from the motherboard. WHen inserting RAM, make sure levers are int he full back position and you press down firmly with both thumbs till the module snaps in place and the levers snap up in the locked position on their own (DO not pull up the levers)
If there is no change trying RAM modules in slots individually, then either all RAM modules are damaged, or the slot is bad, in which case a motherboard is required

My comuter say it is low on virtual memory and windows is increasing it. This is the 3rd or 4th time it has happend in the last month. Is there something I need to do. It is on automatic scanning. I have a...

Virtual Memory is the space Windows uses to put information on your Hard drive when there is not enough RAM ( your 512Mb DDR2) to hold it.

To change this you need to Right click on "My computer" and select "properties " click on the Advance tab then click on "Performance/Settings" once in the perfomance section click on "Advanced" again and down near the bottom you will see "Virtual Memory" click on "Change" this will take you to a page hat will show you your C drive and the Paging file Size ( Virtual memory) near the bottom of this pag you will see a minimum allowed a recommended and a currently allocated. above this you need to select "Custom Size " and in the initial size enter the currently allocated number then for the maximum size enter the "recommended" number. Click on "SET" then OK 3 times. You will need to restert your computer for these changes to take effect and once done you should not receive that warning again.

Hope this helps

Not reading memory cards. No screen at all

It might a month board issue then. If its not under warranty, try to disassemble the mother board and assemble it back. Note down each connectors you are removing if you are not expert. If you have isopropyl alcohol, clean the memory slots, watch if the clips are not broken. If nothing resolves, it will be the motherboard issue

I have the same problem 6 beeps...I green 3 yellow lights

That beep code indicates memory is not being properly identified or used. Try removing memory and testing with one module at a time until you find the one module or slot that is causing the trouble.

Computer is very slow.

McAfee virus software is a memory hog. You need to add more memory to your pc. It uses pc3200 memory. This computer has a memory capacity of 4gigabytes. The memory slots are numbered this way......starting from the memory slot closest to the processor>
one, three, two, four. 1 and 2 work together, 3 and 4 work together. So if you buy just 2 gigabytes......put them in 1 and 2. This will help. Sounds like the virus software is doing a full system could do a "quick"scan and do a "full" scan once a week....

Beep problem Dell Dimension 4700

Beep problem update - Dell 4700. Last night started computer - cold boot. The screen had just started to light up and then went black and computer started beeping in an interrupted sequence. Fan speed increased considerably (suggesting overheat?) Shut it down and attempted two restarts with no success. This morning I unplugged all cords, opened case, pulled and reset memory cards and vacuumed inside. The computer was very clean so really don't suspect that dust was an issue. Buttoned it back up plugged in plugs and restart successfully accomplished. Have no clue why. Some square electrons, I guess.
