your board might not be on this list but it might give you some idea's of what to try next ( see link ) guess would be a bios flash which would mean getting on another pc/laptop,downloading the bios flash/save on a memory stick( or external hard drive ) boot pc while tapping F12 and scrolling down to boot from external ..but have a look here and see if anything helps...good luck

I have a dell 580 inspiron thats does not turn on..before it turned on but now it just beeps and doesnt follow through with start up.......i had a blue screeen before this ....thanxx

Blue screen could be the windows files getting corrupted due to a virus, file fragmentation or a failing hard drive, overheating cpu or failing memory.
The beeping usually indicates a hardware failure, first open the computer and see it the CPU heatsink is in place properly seated and fan is connected and spinning.
Second with the PC off, remove and reinsert the memory.
These are just a few things to check , most likely the hard drive has failed and needs replacing.
pressing certain keys during bootup can sometimes isolate the issue, but only if the monitor still shows a picture
I hope this helps

At start up the computer as a long beep.i it was a memory problem so changed the memory i thing one slot as gone bad because i have nothing coming on the monitor, but no more long beep

If you have more than one memory card in the system, try removing one and see if you can at least get to the bios screen. If that does not work, try swapping the other.

Did you get the correct memory for the motherboard? Does the motherboard have built in video or add-in video card? If it is built-in and you have a video card, try that video card.

Does the system seem to be booting? In other words does the hard drive spin up and make noises like it is reading and booting the system? Does the num lock and cap lock on the keyboard work?

Best of luck, Jim

Won't post, no beep. No display on monitor. Tried different AGP video card, different memory. I have unplugged everything but the AGP card and hard drive. The monitor works on a different computer so...

Basically, display card, RAM and processor are the ones affecting the display. IF trying different memory and video card doesnot help. Try changing the different processor. Thanx with regards Sajan

It will not boot up, fans spin, no video and 3-4 beeps

If you have encounter this kind of trouble this is a RAM problem which is beeping. B

Beep code pattern on a PhoenixBIOS system means that there has been an issue while testing the DRAM refresh. This could be a problem with the system memory, an expansion card, or the motherboard.

Random Access Memory (RAM) is the "working memory" in a computer. Additional RAM allows a computer to work with more information at the same time which can have a dramatic effect on total system performance.

RAM is typically referred to simply as "memory" even though other types of memory may exist inside a computer.

At this time you need to check the memory. Remove the memory and turn it on identify in there is sound provided.

Memory is installed in the memory module slots located in the motherboard. These slots are easily locatable by looking for the small hinges on either side that lock the memory in place. Certain sizes of modules may need to be installed in certain slots so always check with your motherboard manufacturer before purchase or installation.

The desktop won't reboot. The power light stays yellow. I hear a fan running, but the monitor says no signal.

If your fan runs and the hard drive spins up, then you have a video card problem.
I'd do this: Disconnect everything inside the case but the CPU, memory, and video. Now try to boot. Also observe the fan on the CPU--does it spin?
If this fails, then your video has probably gone bad. Also--does your computer usually give you a "beep" when it starts up? If so, is it giving you a beep now? If not, you're failing the hardware startup test (POST).
So, your problem may be the video card. If your video is part of the motherboard, then you need to replace the motherboard.

Princeton Monitor is "out of range"

The monitor is not getting a video signal. This is probably an issue with your computer. It could be a memory, hard drive or motherboard issue.

Make sure you are getting power to the pc (fans running, hard drive spinning...etc). Then check your memory. Try switching memory slots, or try different memory.

Turn on computer and see if you hear any bios beeps.

Try a different hard drive if you have one.

Good luck,

No video

It's not necessarily the video that's the problem. Anything that would keep the computer from beginning the POST process (beginning of the process of booting your computer) could also result in no video. When you start the computer up, does it beep at all? If so, how many beeps, and are they long or short. The order and lengths of the beeps are the most basic type of error codes. Also, do you hear the hard drive spinning up? And does the CD/DVD ROM drive start up normally? It could be a power supply, your processor, memory, the motherboard or just the video card. It could also be just about anything in the computer if it developed a short, as a single short can cause the power supply to shut itself down so as to protect the computer from being further damaged. I would suggest disconnecting power to the drives, and trying again. If it boots to video, you know one of the drives is the culprit. If they aren't the problem, try removing the memory. It won't boot that way, but if the memory is the problem it will at least reach your POST and give you the option of entering BIOS. If you get that far, the memory is at fault. Then, try the same with any expansion cards onboard. If none of that causes it, then you either have a bad processor, bad onboard video, something else wrong with the motherboard, or bad power supply. Unfortunately, none of that can really be tested without having parts to swap out.
