I just got my brother's dell computer and it beeps at start up. It first sounds like 1 long and then a short but then it just repeats 2 short beeps. I googled it and all sound like ram problem...It has 4 sticks of ram and changing them around or just one and I even put in an older dds2 or NONE...I get the same beep. I even tried removing the CMOS battery and still the same beeps...can this computer still be saved? :)

Im going to say that its the ram.You might just have to replace the bad ones with brand new ones.Dell computers give beep codes for most of their models. I just had the same problem on a vostro desktop. 2 short beeps and the power light was blinking amber.mine is 3 years old and rarely used but ram does goes bad.Once the ram was replaced problem solved.
