In the documentation there should be information on beep codes. When a computer starts, it does a series of checks on hardware. If there is a problem then it gives you beep codes. The beep codes are usually unique to the manufacturer of the motherboard, but Dell should have information in their manual or on their website.

Go here:

Dell support

Enter your product model, then click on the link for System Documentation. Open the User's Guide. Inside the User's Guide, they list the beep codes and diagnostic lights for that model.

Hope that helps.

Don't forget that many dell models have a incompatible power supply.  There are a couple of wires crossed that require a little dongle if you use a standard power supply.  It is never really a good idea to mate a dell motherboard with a non dell power supply unless of course you know what you have and get the approprite dongle.  Places like Frys on the west cost have them sitting right next to the replacement supplies.
