    abnormal one beep code apart from the normal beep which we hear while powering on,is a indication of motherboard failure .....replace MOTHERBOARD.

    If that is the code for motherboard failure it probably does need replaced. Unfortunatly Dell uses the poorest quality components out there. If you decide to repair instead of replacing your computer, check to see if Asus makes a motherboard that will fit. If not I would consider replacing the system. Dell and Gateway are your bottom end computers. Next step up would be Toshiba, E- Machines or Sony. Stay with an Intel dhip AMD gets too hot and they generaly do not last as long. If you really want a good system move on up to HP\Compaq, IBM or Panasonic.

It start beeping until XP window come up,

It could be a bad memory module. Try removing and reinstalling them. Try one module at a time to see if beeping stops . Check all other connections to make sure they are properly connected. Hope this helps.

No screen display

Check the memory modules are inserted correctly and that they both function by removing one of them and trying to boot with the other one only, being that it has two of course.

Dell inspiron mini 1010 RAM problem

Make sure you test the ram with memtest86+ in the slot that is working correctly. Also make sure you have all your ram seated correctly so you can definitely rule out the RAM as being a problem.

If you tried different memory in the same slot and it still has the problem then the ram slot is likely bad and not the ram. So if you really need to add memory then yes the motherboard would have to be replaced.

That being said however, I'm not sure the cost of replacing the motherboard would be worth it. Personally, I would save off any important info and sell as many of the good parts as I could on eBay (HDD, RAM, Screen, keyboard, battery, power cord/adapter, etc) and buy a new one.

My Dell v515w printer won't print from my Dell inspiron mini 1011---both are on wireless home network

Might need to install the driver for the printer first! If you don't have a disk with the driver, go to the manufactures web site, to their 'driver downloads/downloads/support' where you should be able to find the driver after entering your printer model information.
hope this helps!!

Hi. We have à Dell

I would run a Check disk utility to check for errors in system files. Try running Scandisk or CHKDSK/F if they are loaded, if not go online and download CheckDisk,exe. Make sure it is for your OS otherwise it may not work properly.
Hope that helps.
