Hi, I am new to this site but not to working on PCs. I am in a bit of a quandary though. I am not that familiar with all of the beep codes especially those on the Dells. I am working on a Dell Optiplex GX270 and get 2 long, 2 short, a pause and 2 short beeps when I turn the machine on. I have already checked the ram and reseated it. I have checked for blown capacitors and made sure all connections were secure. Does anyone know the translation of the above beep code?

Thanks

Laura

That is the GX270 beep code list but none match your description.

Thank you, after looking at that and finally getting hold of someone at Dell I ran a few tests and determined that the MB has failed. The client opted not to fix. Thank you for your help though.
