Inspiron 15R continuous Beeping

I too have the continuous beeping problem, a few seconds apart. but not a set number of beeps they just go on.

If I hold the power button down and disconnect the power it usually restarts, sometimes I have t o have a couple of goes. (  I have taken the battery out etc.)

It seem to be more of a problem when I shut down rather than sleep the laptop.

I am working my way through any maintenance, no problems have been flagged, the battery seems ok.

I would be grateful for any advice, as I an concerned th is symptomatic of something worse about to happen.

Please note I am not an IT person, just an average user, I may not cope if the response is too technical

Hi lesliead,

I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the computer to check if the Beeps disappear. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, then download the BIOS required onto the system and install it.

RE: Inspiron 15R continuous Beeping

Many thanks for your suggestion, as I have recently upgraded from windows 8 to 8.1, maybe this is required. I am however concerned about doing this myself as it looks like if I muck it up, I could send my laptop to oblivion, and it seems a bit more technical than i am.

Ill do a bit more reading and see if  I can be organised to give it a go on the weekend

Dumb question, what is my service tag?
