Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.
What do the color led's labeled A,B,C,D on the back of the cpu read? I do not have any diagnostic codes for 6 long beeps. Take a look at the advanced troubleshooting information on beep codes by clicking the link below.

ok, on further inspection, the beeps go in this patter. 4 beeps. a pause. 2 beeps. on the back of the computer, the A and B are orange and the C and D are green.
If you followed the link that was provided, you can lookup both the beeps and the lights. The lights indicate a memory failure. You can read more info on the link itself.
I saw that you have an 800mhz machine with 333mhz memory. That's not correct. So, did you add memory to your machine after you got it? The memory should be running at 400mhz with an 800mhz fsb.
