    So I changed setting with 2 sticks of 2133 in slots 2 & 3. Computer booted and looked to be running fine. Then it shut down, ok no biggie. I reset the BIOS per Mr Fox's post. I put in 2 sticks of RAM in slot 2 and 3 and I got 4 beeps. OK, so I tried with just 1 stick of RAM in slot 2, PC boots up, checked BIOS settings and left at Auto. I powered down tried 1 stick of RAM in slot 3, 4 beeps. I proceeded to try 1 stick of RAM in slot 0 then slot 1, each attempted resulted in 4 beeps. I also tried with all 4 sticks in and I got 4 beeps.

    So now I am running 1 stick of RAM in slot 2 (only slot that works). Any suggestions? Or do I need to open a claim with Dell to get a new mother board? (I still have warranty)

    Thank you,
