Help my dell is not displaying but the front led is showing the power light on CPU but is not displaying on the monitor and i have used working RAM on the Computer but the problem is the same, kindly help...


If you do not hear a post beep sound, then you may have an issue with the motherboard and/or processor. I suggest you either take it in for repair or replace yourself

If you hear the post beep sound, then listen for the sequence of beeps. This should indicate what is wrong with the machine. Generally(Note: these may be different with motherboard and/or bios type).
  • sequential long beeps indicate RAM issues
  • 1 long followed by two short indicate a display adapter issue

NO SOUND HEAR


Hi, Do this beeping code for motherboard troubleshooting. First disconnect all memory,external video card, etc only motherboard and power supply. Then power on if you hear continuous beeping means the motherboard working good. Please do this beeping code troubleshooting.
No beeping means Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals. One beeping means Everything is normal and Computer posted fine. Two beeping means POST/CMOS Error. One Long Beep, One Short Beep means Motherboard Problem.
One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps means Video Problem.
One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps means Video problem.
Repeated Long Beeps means memory error.
Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps means CPU Overheating.

Having installed this motherboard in the case and connected up I get a series of fast beeps a few seconds after power-up. I have immediately powered down. What is causing this problem? There is nothing in...


In your case, it is a memory problem. It's either one of your RAM has problem if you have 2 slot RAM. Please ensure that you have the right RAM for your board. You can also clean the contacts of your RAM by using eraser.
Below are the most common beep code that being adopted to most BIOS for reporting.
  • short beep - Normal POST(system is OK)
  • Steady short beeps - power supply problem
  • long continuous beep - memory failure
  • Steady long beeps - power supply problem
  • 1 long, 2 short beeps - video card problem

Ram beep but no display bios jumper is clear stat bios jumper is normal then no start machine


Hello,
Please see this as reference

Continuous long beeps-RAM error
2 short beeps- BIOS error
1 long and 8 short beeps- Display Card error
1 long beep after few seconds 2 short beeps-FDC error
1 long beep after few seconds 1 short beeps-FDC is Ok
1 long beep and 2 short beeps-Display Card Error

Most probable cause is Ram memory, please try removing modules and reinserting, also try using alternately just one of them to determine which one is defective.

Cant get computer to


Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply, CPU and power switch.

Turn on the computer. You should hear 3 beeps because you removed the memory.

If you don't hear any beeps, check the power supply. Check all the connections. Did you connect the 4 pin power? Did you skimp on it? A common mistake is to get a cheap, high-power supply. Just because the box says it's 1000 WATTs doesn't mean that will carry a steady load.

Still nothing...

It's either a bad motherboard or processor. If you have another processor that is supported on that board and you know it works, try it. If it boots return your CPU for a good one.

Unfortunatly, if it doesn't boot with a known-good processor that just proves the board is bad; it doesn't prove your CPU is good. You may have more issues.
