Hello all. I have been reading and looking at all of the codes and my Dell Inspiron 1526 must be special. It has a code that I cannot find anywhere. It has a solid "9" (first light), and a flashing "4" and "(third light)". My computer appears to come on, immediately goes to this code after a brief cycling of lights on the control panel. No video or anything else happening other than the fan turning. I removed the memory modules, swapped them, tried one at a time, to no avail. Does anyone have a clue as to what could be wrong with it. Thanks in advance.
