The exact type of beeps matter (eg.: two long, three short). Generally, beep codes indicate something is badly wrong, often the RAM.

Hello

That beep could mean alot of things, but probably a VIDEO CARD or RAM has become unseated.

If you feel comfortable with this, UNPLUG THE COMPUTER take off the case, remove and reinsert the ram chips, and the cards. You might need a screwdriver or two, and a LIGHT. The ram tabs are small.

Good Luck

Hi:
Check and see if somehow your video card came unseated from the motherboard. sometimes just moving a tower around can pop them loose.

When turned-on. tower will not boot and only beeps


If you recently added new hardware, remove it. Also unplug any USB devices. If that doesn't get you past the BIOS screen, then you need to take your PC to a shop, it sounds like a bad motherboard.

My computer doesn't load on the screen as I turn it in


A solid amber power LED on a Dell System is indicative of a no post. There are 4 diagnostics LEDs on most Dell Towers (Either on the back marked ABCD, or on the front marked 1234) they can give more details of what the POST problem is.
Troubleshooting: Disconnect all external connections to tower except power, turn it on, see if the LED indications changed. If they change, then connect disconnected items one at a time till the failed item is found. If no change, the open tower, remove all PCI expansion cards, see if system will boot. If still no change, then most likely a motherboard failure. Take RAM out, see if you get a Beep error code when powered on, if no beeps, replace motherboard. If it does beep, try RAM modules one at a time, if it boots with 1 but not the other, replace the effected module. If no boot, with either replace MB

3 beeps on boot no screen and boot stops


sounds like the motherboard trying to give you an error code. search beep codes for the type of motherboard you have and then you will get a possible cause of the interruption.

my friend once gave me an old ibm that had a beeping sound preventing it from booting. i googled ibm beep codes and learned that it was a video card error. i swapped the video card and problem solved

Dell vista will not boot up


Typically, it's a memory problem. If you have multiple memory modules, leave one in the CPU at a time and boot your system todetermine which module is bad. Good luck.
