today i tried to start my computer and all i get is a series of 4 beeps 1-1-1-1 continuously.
What model Inspiron? On some Inspiron's four beeps means memory read/write error. Did you instal new memory?
Vostro 460 – Intel Core i7 2600 @ 3.4Ghz - 16GB DDR3 @ 1333MHz –Kingston 240GB SSD – Seagate 320GB HDD – ASUS GeForceGTX 550 Ti 1GB DDR5 – 16X DVD-RW – 16X DVD-ROM - Antec 550w PSU - Windows 7 Home Premium X64 SP1- Dell E2211H 22"Flat Panel Monitor
no i did not install new memory
Can't find an Inspiron 1580 on the list. Try reseating the memory if you can. I'd give you a link to instructions, but since I can't find a 1580....
i miean a i580
Found the manual for an Inspiron 580, but it has no information on beep codes. What is the state of the power button when you press it? Is it solid blue, blinking blue, solid amber blinking amber?
