I am having a major problem with my desktop computer Yesterday My desktop computer crashed I had the Blue screen of Death saying that the physical memory dumped and now when I turn on the computer it makes a Beeping noise and nothing comes on the screen  . I feel Upset because my desktop was my favorite computer and because I have no job I have no money to buy a new computer I have no money to take the computer to a computer repair shop . I would like a good Used working desktop Computer that works with all the installation Cds that came with it all I need is the tower   part I have the monitor.  Please message me if you can help because before my desktop crashed my desktop was my favorite computer and it would mean a lot to me to have a good used working desktop computer. I have tried frececycle and freecycle is no good because you have to drive to pick up the item you want and I do not drive at all.

What is the manufacturer/model of the computer?

There are some things to try which *might* fix it.

Is it a constant beep with very few to no interruptions or is it a lot of individual beeps?

 

If it is the first then your RAM may have fried, fortunately RAM is cheap (50 bucks for a good set of 8GB)

 

if its the other then theres something else wrong with it.

post beep codes could mean alot of things , here are the DELL series codes

 

Dell Beep Code Meanings 1-1-2 Processor Register Failure 1-1-3 NVRam 1-1-4 ROM Bios checksum failure 1-2-1 Programmable Interval Timer 1-2-2 DMA Initialization Failure 1-2-3 Direct Memory Access Page Register Read/Write Failure 1-3-1 - 2-4-4 Memory/RAM Not Properly Identified or Used 3-1-1 Slave DMA Registration Failure 3-1-2 Master DMA Registration Failure 3-1-3 Master Interrupt Mask Registration Failure 3-1-4 Slave Interrupt Mask Registration Failure 3-2-2 Interrupted Vector Loading Failure 3-2-4 Keyboard Controller (Input) Test Failure 3-3-1 NVRam Insufficient Power 3-3-2 Improperly configured NVRam 3-3-4 Video Memory(RAM) Test Failure 3-4-1 Screen Output Initialization Failure 3-4-2 Screen Retrace Failure 3-4-3 Failure Finding Video Read Only Memory 4-2-1 Lack of Time Tick 4-2-2 Shutdown Failure 4-2-3 Failure in Gate A20 4-2-4 Unexpected Interruption in Protect Mode 4-3-1 Memory Address Failure above 0FFFFH 4-3-4 Non Functioning Time Of Day Clock 4-4-1 Serial And/Or Parallel Port Test Failure 4-4-4 Cache Test Failure

 

the only ones i see that might be related is the ram/memory  codes

 

   there are older universal PC codes thaty might shed more light

 

will post back shortly
