RE: 1 high sounded and 7 low sounded beeps on POST in Dell Inspiron 15 series Laptop


What is the exact system model? Is there any damage on the system?

7 beeps is a CPU failure - which ideally indicates a faulty motherboard and the same needs to be replaced - see this chart for info about beep codes - http://dell.to/1IuETMX

If the system is under warranty, Please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email). If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

If you have important data you need to recover, then download the service manual - http://dell.to/1n3X2po - enter the service tag and download the service manual and remove the HDD from the system - get an external caddy for the HDD from a local store and plug it into the caddy and use it as an external HDD when connected to another system and save any data you need from there.

Let us know if you have any other queries.
