Question about Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer

1 Answer

My desktop (inspiron 530)started beeping (6 short beeps)when it restart or shuts down; it will do the same when it reboots itself. Now, it will do the same beeps but it won't pass that stage. I also noticed a solid yellow or amber light on the motherboard. Also, the receiver gadget for the keyboard/desktop communication seems not working either; there were 2 green lights before, now no lights at all.

HI,
The 6 beeps on the computer suggest a video card BIOS failure.
If you have an add-on video card on the computer . Trying removing the same and then restart your computer. If the the video card is on board on the motherboard. Then the motherboard would need to either service , that would be expensive,or get the motherboard replaced.

Thanks
Proton

Dell inspiron 530s.when powered up cpu.fan runs very fast,computer gives 1 beep then powers off.It sometimes restarts itself only for the same thing to occur.


Good Morning--The 1 beep with the Dell Inspiron 530 is due to a bios check sum failure and or possible motherboard failure. The best resolution is to contact Dell and to see what they say. If you have any other questions--feel free to contact us at info@custompcrepair.com

Two Beeps indicates "No memory modules detected" as outlined in the service manual. Either you have bad memory or you memory slots ( or motherboard memory circuit) are bad.

Have you tried installing them one at a time. It is most likely a faulty memory chip, however, it could be a slot as well. Try swip swapping them around to see if you can find a combination that works.

Solid amber light ON Dell Inspiron 530 desktop.The Fans start and stop immediately.The mother board has the power ON Amber light.


The Yellow Light of Death, anyway turn on Your PC, as it starts You will here some beeps especially on a Dells. Count the beeps , there will be a slight pause so it will beep once then pause then beep again. Count the beeps and that will be Your code. Go to Dell Support site and look up code. Most of the time a Yellow amber light means that there is trouble with Your Motherboard but thats not to say its the Motherboard itself, it could have possibly burned out Your RAM, Processor, Heat fan, even the power supply itself. So look up the code and at least You'll have a better chance of finding the solution, Good Luck
