Jump to solution

Hi,

When I power up my dell inspiron, i see black screen (the fan is running, power button is shining) and I hear 2 beeps all the time with 3 sec. of pause. What is the problem, is it RAM?

Try reseating the memory module(s).If you have two modules test each of them separately.

You didn't mention your laptop model - click the link below ,look for your specific laptop and download the service manual.

It's normally not a big deal to reseat modules but take care and don't damage the connectors.

That actually didn't work out either. I tried to reseat them, use only one. I have to get some other DDR3 memory to check if that is RAM or main board probelm. Hope the first one... thx for all the help!
