    Dell Inspiron 530

    Do any of you guys have a Dell Inspiron 530? Got a tech question for ya. When i turn on the power the fan comes on and then i hear a beep. Then everything boots up normal. In the online manual guide theres beep codes that tells of a problem.

    1 repetitive beep= A bad bios checksum something. Mines just a single beep, not repetitive. I called Dell twice and they said it was normal. Which i think is right because everything boots up beautifully. I guess i'm just being paranoid.

    Do you you guys get a beep?

    Is the mobo also made by Dell, if not you should check the original manufacture's manual too. Maybe it's time to change that battery on your mother board.

    Allot of mobo's make a single beep when they boot up, sometimes its to indicate that the motherboard is working properly, other times its simply to indicate that the motherboard has now turned on.

    My Gigabyte bord does this as well, has done so from the very beginning, nothing to worry about. Oh and those cmos battery's? Theyre designed to last at least 5-6 years so unless its affecting you're bootups or performance i'd say leave it allone.

    Agree. And if it is really bothering you you should able to go to the CMOS and turn it off.

    Dell's are crap, But if the tech guy says its alright, then i guess its ok. I work more on japanese brands, Ie Toshiba

    Oh I see what you did there.
