Inspiron 530 - double beep on startup

This question is not answered

After checking the forum I learned that the double beep on startup is a memory issue. I have checked all RAM cards and they are all working. Is there anything else I could try?

  • Beep codes mean repetitive short beeps--2 beeps, pause, 2 beeps again and so on, not just 2 beeps and stop. Some beeps at startup are normal.

    If you are getting repetitive double beeps-- Test each chip separately and reboot each time. directions: 

  • It is a repetitive  2 beeps, pause, 2 beeps again and so on... I have tested the chips on a different machine and they all work fine. What's next?

  • Hello. I know this is a couple months old but thought i would still try...

    I am getting BEEP BEEP on shutdown, the problem is that it never shuts down, it repeats every couple seconds, i have to manually shut it down by pressing the POWER button. It functions this way about 50%. The rest of the time it shuts down normally.
