Inspiron 15Z 5523, beeps 4 times.

(reposting)

Hello!

my Inspiron 15Z 5523 beeps 4 times and doesn't start.

I have tried reseating the memory modules and i have tried pushing the Reset button. Neither one worked.

What could I do to fix the problem?

Build yourself a new Windows install medium (USB key or disc) using the Intel IRST driver (first one in the link below if you're using 64-bit 7; second for 32-bit).

our laptop, same exact model, just started doing the same thing. I read elsewhere that perhaps the RAM modules need to be replaced?

What happens if you attempt to boot the system with no memory module(s) installed?

Remove the small cover in the center of the system base - service manual:
