I too am not able to get my Dell Inspiron to come on. After I power on, I get '7' Beeps with a pause in between continuously. I keep counting the beeps and yes it's '7'. Ugh.... I tried to press down the 'D' button, then powering on, but nothing occured. Help?
What is the exact system model?
7 beeps is a processor cache failure. See this link for more info - http://dell.to/1IuETMX
If the system is under warranty, write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details. If there is no warranty, then we can help with a paid service call if required.
Keep us updated.
