Hi everyone. My first post....probably not my last. I love the forums......they are a great resource for valuable information.
OK....so here's the deal.....I have a Dell Latitude D630 that will not even post. I get two flashing lights on the top left corner of the keyboard. THere are three seperate lights that are available here.....(they are all in the shape of a padlock)....on the lef tis a "9" ...in the middle is a "A"....and theone on the right is a "down arrow". The middle and the right one are the the two blinking. I had a chat session with a Dell support person and he sent me a new HD based on the fact I was able to boot the machine into windows on this other HD. I checked the memory and that doesn't seem to be the cause.
Anybody know what the two blinking lights means??
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have the new HD from Dell, but it will not even see the new drive for me to install and image.
Remove and replace the memory modules. If the system won't power up thereafter, you've a faulty mainboard.
thanks for the reply....it calls for PC25300 DDR2..... to test it I used PC24200 DRR2.....I got no response from the device. no beeps ....no nothing.....except for the two blinking lights that I mentioned earlier.
You think it could be anything else besides the MOBO? If it is, not a problem...as the machine is under warranty.
I do appreciate the feedback very much.
Hold on - you did not mention having used untried RAM. I would make sure you try Dell certified RAM before going further.
I would buy some of the correct speed of RAM - the issue you're seeing can be from RAM that's too slow.
