Re: Inspiron Desktop - beeps

What model Inspiron?  On some Inspiron's four beeps means memory read/write error.  Did you instal new memory?

Re: Inspiron Desktop - beeps

Can't find an Inspiron 1580 on the list.  Try reseating the memory if you can.  I'd give you a link to instructions, but since I can't find a 1580....

Re: Inspiron Desktop - beeps

Found the manual for an Inspiron 580, but it has no information on beep codes.  What is the state of the power button when you press it?  Is it solid blue, blinking blue, solid amber blinking amber?
