Alienware M18x Continuous POST beeps

I was playing a video game on my Alienware M18x laptop when my laptop shut off in an instant without notice, I immediately turned it back on, but it wouldn't do so. So I proceded to wait a few minutes, in which I successfully turned the laptop on, but the POST sent out 2 quick beeps, and then continuously beeped afterwards. I would really appreciate it if someone could give me some assistance on the issue, thanks! Smiley Happy UPDATE: okay, so I attempted to fix it by using some solutions, it now gives out 8 consistent beeps, before giving them out again.

RE: Alienware M18x Continuous POST beeps

you can press fn key+power and keep Fn pressed, after few seconds you will be able to show ePSA test if this manipulation doesn't works, you can also  reset your CMOS battery & replug it after 1 minute

Iv tried what you said and nothing shows up on the monitor when I hold down fn + power, iv also tried resetting the CMOS battery butyl that only gave me 5 beeps.
