Beeps during startup/POST means you have a hardware failure that is stoping the computer from starting up normal. 3 beeps means you have faulty RAM. You could trying removing a stick if u have more then 1 installed, however replacement is ideal. RAM is highly inexpensive and is a DIY project that would take less than 10 minutes to complete. However if your computer is under warranty I suggest calling dell and letting them deal with it.
Here is link to beep codes for future reference
Let me know if you need instructions on to swap out RAM, I would gladly assist, please rate

Beeps twice then pauses and beeps twice again(repeats) and wont boot


When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer.

Power off. Wait a full minute. Discharge static from your hands by touching exposed metal part of chassis (case). Open your case and re seat memory chips.

My pc monitor is showing a box say dmps suspend status


The DPMS standard (Display Power Management Signaling) was developed to extend the useful life of PC monitors as well as to conserve the relatively high amount of energy used by monitors when not required.

In brief terms it works as follows.

The DPMS compliant video controller and the DPMS compliant monitor use the Horizontal sync and Vertical sync signals to control the power mode of the monitor. Because there are 2 signal lines, it allows 4 modes of operation. Normal, Standby, Suspend and Off.

Go to your power management source located in the control panel and make the needed adjustments.

How do i unlock my dell keyboard?


Dell Inspiron 530s keyboard unlock
Is the keyboard usb or ps2? If its usb then try another port. If its ps2(Green) then power down the pc by holding in the power button for 8 to 10 seconds. Pull the plug and make sure no pins are bent. Plug it back in and boot back up. This should fix the problem if its ps2. Regards

Dell Inspiron Vostro 530s won't boot.


Hi,

I work for Dell, If the power button led light is flashing amber or amber (the Power supply is faulty) The Yellow light you saw inside the motherboard is the "Flea Light" (that is one way you could check if there is still power on the motherboard). Since the motherboard was replaced there are a few more things to check:

1. Video card (integrated or expansion)
2. Monitor (Make sure it displays self test feature when the cables are removed)
3. Monitor Cables (VGA / DVi)
4. Power Cable on the Monitor (try a different cable)
5. Power Supply (you already checked, but i suspect this is causing the problem)

Hope this helps.

Beeps when turned on monitor says no signal and fans do run


How many times does it beep? If it beeps seven or so times, it's your video card. If it only beeps once or twice, can't remember for sure, it's memory problem.
