Beep Code 2

Jump to solution

When I turn on my only 14 months old XPS 8300 I get 2 beeps repeatedly - the normally white switch on button is amber.

 

Has anyone experienced this please?

Hi Ludders,

Two beeps is a problem with the RAM. The troubleshooting procedure is to first remove and re-seat all modules. If you are still getting two beeps, try installing one module at a time until you discover the offending module.

Many thanks Osprey4. I will try that. By the way at the same time we have noticed that we are getting a black screen on the monitor - the only way to clear it is to reboot! Probably unrelated but I thought I would mention it.

May or may not be unrelated. But let me know how your troubleshooting goes.
