Question about Dell Dimension 4500 PC Desktop
When i turn on the computer, the screen goes to a Dell logo and wont go any farther. I have tried to press F8 and start it in safe mode to fix the problem...but no luck.
Typically, a system that won't pass POST (Power On Self Test) will beep in a pattern indicating what the problem is. Here's the beep codes for Dell systems:
Beep Codes Possible Causes Corrective Action 1 - 2 No video card detected Reseat the video card 1 - 2 - 2 - 3 BIOS ROM checksum error 1 - 3 - 1 - 1 DRAM refresh error Reseat the memory modules 1 - 3 - 1 - 3 8742 Keyboard Controller error Reseat the keyboard connector 1 - 3 - 3 - 1 Memory defective or not present Reseat the memory modules 1 - 3 - 4 - 1 RAM failure on line xxx Reseat the memory modules 1 - 3 - 4 - 3 RAM failure on data bits xxx of low byte on memory bus Reseat the memory modules 1 - 4 - 1 - 1 RAM failure on data bits xxx of high byte on memory bus Reseat the memory modules
