I have a Dell Inspiron 7000, 15.6" i7 8gb ram that isn't powering up. I press the power button, the button lights up and keyboard backlight lights, then the power button fades out and continues this light up fade out process on it's own indefinitely. The screen does not turn on, the fan does not turn on, and there is no beeping.
Now, when I power it on with the RAM stick removed, the fan turns on, the screen backlight comes on(but doesn't display anything) and I hear beeping. Also, I installed a 2gb stick from a friends laptop and get the same symptoms as with no RAM installed.
Anyone have any other ideas they could throw at me?
Thanks for writing to us and to try the troubleshooting steps.
Looking at the outcome of the troubleshooting, the issue looks to be with the memory slots on motherboard. Without the memory stick and with new memory sticks it gives beeps which indicates NO MEMORY error.
