it show the beep codes and it says its your memory moduals.
i would try to pull them out,keeping them in order,clean the contacts with a non fuzzy cloth with some 70 percent or better rubbing alcohol let dry and then reseat them.
if you have more than 1 modual and it doesnt work when u put them back in then try useing 1 at a time to see which 1 is bad.

The two beep code means no memory was detected. This might mean bad memory, memory that's loose in its socket, or a system board problem.

Make sure all the memory is firmly seated and latched into the sockets.

If you have only one RAM module installed, try substituting a known good part of the same type to see if the trouble clears up. If the memory still isn't detected you'll need a new motherboard.

If you have more than one RAM module, try them one at a time to see if you can isolate which is causing the trouble. (Testing the motherboard with known good memory is always a good thing to try. I have seen computers where all three RAM sticks were bad at one time, so I wrongly thought the motherboard was at fault. I always keep some good memory around for testing now.)

Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

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 [email protected]

OK, here is what dell says:

BIOS checksum failure. Possible motherboard failure.

Try re-seating your memory modules and see if the beep code disappears

Also, Try using the Dell Diagnostics which is located on a hidden diagnostic utility partition on your hard drive or on the Drivers and Utilities Cd that came with your computer.

  1. Ensure that the computer is connected to an electrical outlet that is known to be working properly.

  2. Turn on (or restart) your computer.

  3. When the DELL™ logo appears, press <F12> immediately. Select Boot to Utility Partition from the boot menu and press <Enter>.
Press any key to start the Dell Diagnostics from the diagnostics utility partition on your hard drive.
