Question about Dell OptiPlex GX520 PC Desktop
If the beep tones are 1 - 1 - 3 - 1 then you have a RAM error. It may be something as simple as a loose module. If all are properly seated and clamped in (you must look closely) then remove them one by one remembering which mod came from which slot. Each time you remove one try to start the PC If you remove one and it starts up then the one you removed is the bad module. You then need to have the module tested to see if it is good (the slot may be bad instead). You don't want to put a good RAM mod in a bad slot and take a chance of ruining it. You can however take the original and try putting it back in the slot to see if the computer will now read it.
To give you any further instruction I would need more information.
Hope this helps
