Dell Studio xps 1645 boot up beeps

Hello. I've got a problem with my laptop.  When I do the boot up to Dell logo & loading bar it will stop towards end  of loading bar it starts to beep more than 7 or 8 times. After I hold down & press f8 it will go to black screen & beeps more than it'll go to my windows 10 login. Why's this happening & how to fix? Please help.  Thank you.

When did the issue start? Does this happen with or without the adapter connected? 

The exact # of beeps in a cycle indicate the source of the issue. Check this chart for more info - http://dell.to/1IuETMX

8 Beeps is an LCD failure. Download the service manual - http://dell.to/1UkTvDi and reseat the LCD cable and check.

Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/1TLGnua- and reinstall the chipset drivers from the same site.

Reinstall the video driver from the vendor site for your video card and OS - http://support.amd.com/en-us/download

Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.

Also, write me a private conversation with the service tag, your name and email address for case records. 

If you manage to isolate the source of the issue, you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call here - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

Keep us updated.

P.S. Your machine is not compatible to work with Win10 - see this link - http://dell.to/1VM5Sft

If it is 8 beeps and you have reseated the LCD cable, then next optimal step is to replace the LCD/LVDS cable.

I would personally advise, if the source is either the motherboard (video card) or LCD, I would advise you to invest your money on a new machine, than to repair this one.
