I have a Dell Dim 3000 desktop which has almost croaked.
Nothing new has been added, when I power on it goes through the POST and beeps two short beeps.
I have checked all cables etc. for proper connecttion and they are OK.
The monitor stays blank and nothing happens. I even installed another Harddrive that know works
with the same OS system (win XP) still same old stuff. I have a CD drive but it doesn't reconize any thing
I put in it.
The two beebs you describe don't match up with any of the POST beep codes. What do the diagnostic lights show (labeled either A-D or 1-4)?
