RE: Inspiron N5030 wont start only beeps 8 times repeat

Hi SNAGL2TH,

8 Beep codes indicate LCD failure. I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check if the system switches ON.

  1. Switch off the computer.
  2. Disconnect the AC adapter from the system.
  3. Remove the battery from the computer.
  4. Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
  5. Then connect back all the peripherals and check if you are able to turn on the system.

If the system is not switching ON please connect the external monitor and check if the system is switching ON then I would suggest that you run the diagnostics on the computer by following the steps mentioned below and check if there is any issue with the hardware on your system.

  1. Turn on or restart the computer.
  2. Immediately at the Dell logo screen, starting tapping the <F12> key once a second until the One Time Boot menu appears (if the computer boots to Windows turn the computer off and try again).
  3. At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, PSA+ or Enter ePSA, then press <Enter> to begin the hardware Diagnostics.
  4. Write down any error codes listed. Reply to us with the error codes.

This same thing happened to me. Luckily I just needed to have  some visual cord reconnected. Have you tried plugging your computer into another monster to make sure the computer works? I plugged mine into my tv and it worked perfectly fine until I got the visual cord fixed.
