Tried cleaning the insides of the computer... pretty dusty cuz it was an old computer... hey it worked! my conputer is fine... just dont forget to plug everything in! and the code (1 3 3 1) it means theres a bad connection in the tower and the tower cannot complete the task at hand (via turning on for me...)

My computer is beeping and the green light is staying on but the red light is not on and it just beeps i changed the battery and still beeps and no signal

Hi,

If you are receiving continuous beeps, it means that computer is not recognising the RAM (memory). In this you have to open the Computer and follow the below steps:

1. Turn OFF the computer
2. Open the flap of the Tower (Remove the screws from the back of Tower)
3. Now, On the Motherboard you will be able to see the RAM see the picture nanjia.jpeg

4. There should be two pins to unlock and remove it
5. Once removed, clean the terminal and replug it.
6. Turn ON the computer, it should take care of the issue

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

My Dell Inspirion Mini 10 is beeping 8 times when I turn it on. Nothing on the screen.

Try holding Fn + End with battery and power cord out and while still pressing Fn + End plug only power cable back in and try to power on.

1 beep every 3 seconds

The system is having a problem accessing the system memory to refresh it, a problem either with the system memory or with the motherboard itself.

Computer won't restart....

it appears that this is a memory problem, based on the codes that you specified.

Computer problem

during these beeps there should be pause between them at some point...in other words you may get 2 beeps/pause/1beep/pause/2 beeps noting the number of beeps and where the pauses are will help. From what you are describing and without more info it sounds as if you are describing beep codes, and they generally can give us a lot of information.
