    Hi I have a computer in my house that need's help. It was running ok except for the fact that it would sometimes restart a few time's before I could get logged into an account and going online I had to use internet explorer no add on's other then that it turned on a ran rather smoothly. But after running windows update which had 68 updates it no longer starts. When trying to start it it doesn't show anything on the screen the tower just makes a beeping noise and then the fan starts running really loud it beeps like 4, or 5 times and then nothing but fan running really loudly can be heard with the light flashing. It's a dell not sure what model. I can put up any of the logs since it wont work whatsoever any help would be appreciated thanks guys !

    I do know that dell computers have beep codes to help you figure out the problem. i had only one dell tower beep and it had a bad ram module.it could be bad ram or a failing fan because the computer needs cleaned out of dust and dirt.

    There will be a group of orange/green lights on the back that will indicate what the problem is.
    It will help if you give us the Dell service tag off the bottom. That will let us identify the machine.
