Laptop beeps non-stop when turning on

My wife's laptop is beeping constantly when it starts up and does not stop .I ran tests and found the hard drive had bad blocks. So I replaced it with a similar size ssd drive. Thinking that would fix it, I installed Windows 10, rebooted it still beeps. I have run lots of tests after replacing the hard drive but have not see any errors show up. Anyone have an idea what the issue could be?

Re: Laptop beeps non-stop when turning on

What model system, and what beep pattern (single, pause, single, three, pause three, etc.)?

Re: Laptop beeps non-stop when turning on

The laptop is an Inspiron. The beeping is just constant and does not stop. Pressing any key upon reboot/startup it does not boot and no beeping happens.

Re: Laptop beeps non-stop when turning on

It would help to know exactly which Inspiron you have -- N5110, 3335, 5321, etc. but in general a single repeating beep means your mainboard is bad.

If the system IS powering up, look for a key that's stuck down on the keyboard.
