[SOLVED] A friend gave me a Dell XPS 600 desktop computer. It had 2GB of RAM and I wanted to upgrade to 8GB. I bought four 2GB sticks of Crucial Memory off eBay, new form China, I don’t know if that makes a difference. I installed the memory and the computer beeped when I turned it on. It was 4 beeps with a one or two second pause and then 2 more beeps. I checked to make sure the memory was seated correctly and the computer beeped again. Then I thought I would try one stick at a time to see if any of the new memory was bad. The memory slots on the motherboard are numbered 1 through 4. I placed the stick in the number one slot. It beeped with all four sticks. Every time with the same pattern. I then installed the old memory into the computer and that beeped also, again with the same pattern. I then installed one stick at a time and all four sticks beeped. I did a Google search for the Dell BIOS beep pattern and found four beeps mean there is a memory problem. I could not find anything about the pause and the second two beeps. Does anyone know what might be causing this problem?
