inspiron 530 - 2 beebs on startup nothing else

This question has suggested answer(s)

when booting machine only get 2 beeps. No monitor. Tried replacing video card and hard drive, not the issue it seems. Any help from anybody?

  • Two beeps is an error for memory issues. Remove and reseat your ram modules. IF still getting the beeps, try booting with just one module in slot #1. boot and listen for beeps. Repeat with other module. If neiter works suggest replace the ram. If only one is good, while you can just get one stick I would still recommend replacing both.
