Re: beeping sound while turning on

How many beeps do you hear? How often? Do you have any problems after booting?

Re: beeping sound while turning on

The number of beeps will give you an indication of what might be wrong.

 

Beep Code             Possible Problem

One                        Possible system board failure — BIOS ROM checksum failure

Two                        No RAM detected
                                NOTE  If you installed or replaced the memory module,ensure that the memory
                                module is seated properly.

Three                      Possible system board failure — Chipset error

Four                        RAM read/write failure

Five                         Real Time Clock failure

Six                           Video card or chip failure

Seven                      Processor failure

Eight                        Display failure

Re: beeping sound while turning on

As posted by Bay Wolf. 8 Beeps is a Display Failure and this would seem accurate as you described your Inspiron has stripy colours over the screen. You will need to call technical support and get it repaired.

Re: beeping sound while turning on

i have the same problem and non of the above 8 are the problem. There is no error message. Just the beeping sound that starts when the laptop is turned on and either stops or really diminishes when the windows kicks in i.e. when the user login screen appears.

Did anyone find a solution to this problem?

Re: beeping sound while turning on

Hi troublstime,

The 7 beep code indicates that there is a processor/motherboard failure.  Try releasing the static power and check if the system is working. Follow the steps below.

Switch off the system; remove the battery, ac adapter and the power cable. Press and hold down the power button for thirty seconds to drain any excess static power. In case the problem persists please send me the system service tag or express service code through a private chat, so that I can help you further.

Click on my username select start conversation and send me the details.

Thanks and regards,
