The whole screen gets blurry and there's white boxes all over. Computer beeps once, sometimes its a short beep, sometimes it's a long beep. Anyways, I checked the manual and it mean it's a Dram Refresh Error. I have no idea what that means and how to fix it, so I would be very very thankful if someone explained it to me and told me what should I do!

This question has been answered by SpeedStep Posted by buschent12 on 22 Apr 2013 8:37 I have 2 XPS 420's that started showing flashing number codes on boot up. Both mysteriously started showing these codes after the video cards were replaced. These flashing number codes are located on the top of the box to the left of http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/41747/ the mini view LCD screen. Only half the codes are decipherable in the dell manual. All deal with memory faults. Both machines had NVidia 8800GTs. I replaced both with modern day NVidia 2GB cards. One has a 640GT and the other has a 550 Geforce series. The 550 requires additional power from the PSU. The 640 does not. Both are double slot PCI Express cards. Additionally, both machines were http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/desktop/f/3514/t/19503483 ordered with 3GB of RAM. I replaced both sets of 3GB with DDR2 PC6400 800MHz 4GB total chips of RAM. That is two matched sets of 2GB for a total of 4GB in each machine. The PSUs are the original 375 Watt Dell units. I replaced one of them with a 600 Watt Thermaltake, thinking maybe enough amperage was not being shared around the board. This resulted in no change at all to theboot up flashing codes. One machine has the Bios update of A07 and the other has the A02 release. Both reflect 4GB of RAM in the BIOS and system breakdown in the control panel. I do not have any errors in the device manager for either machine. The machines used to startup very nice and clean, a surge from a fan, and then roll through the process. Now, I do not get any surge of a fan on startup and get several sets of flashing codes from the numbers before the bootup completes. I have searched the end of the internet and this community for simlar symptoms and cannot find a fix. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. BTW, running, Windows Vista 32 bit Home Preimum on both machines. Machines wer

And by reseat you mean sitting correctly? How do you tell? ATNO/TW Super Moderator Posts: 23473Loc: Woodbridge VA 3+ Months Ago Here is what your ram card/s look like http://www.oamao.com/Matos/ordi/guide/SDRAM.jpg They are held in place by two levers on each end. What grinch is sayin is basically push down both levers so the ram chip/s pop out. Then push them back in and make sure they are secure. You know if the are secure because the levers will realign themselves with the notches in the memory cards that keep them "locked in" saleen Newbie Posts: 8Loc: ND 3+ Months Ago There are no levers just a black casing around my comp with small tack looking screws. grinch2171 Moderator Posts: 6819Loc: Martinsburg, WV 3+ Months Ago ATNO was talking about the levers that secure the RAM into place. If you have no idea how to open up your computer case then I seriously suggest taking your PC to a repair shop or getting a friend to help you out. saleen Newbie Posts: 8Loc: ND 3+ Months Ago I understand that but
