Jump to solution

I also have a problem with my Dell Inspiron 3541 I bought online about 6 six months, I upgradede to windows 10 and two weeks after then while I'm working on it just like I do everyday, It just turn off itself while I'm sill working, at first I thought it was the baterry cause it was remaining 25% but plug the charge to an outlet and tried to power it it refuses to power, it only loads to the Dell logo page and then turn itself of again and after some secodes I get this 3 beeps that keeps sounding endlessly until I pull out the battery. Please what do I do, this my first experience with dell.

I have an Inspiron that did the same thing after I ran the Windows auto update  -- take the battery out and unplug the power cord.  Hold down the power button and while holding it plug in the power cord.  The computer should power up to a diagnostics function -- run this function and see if a windows repair function runs.  You might have to repeat this process a couple times ...but this fixed my problems.  A Dell tech posted this info several months back.

My Inspirion 15 (l15RV-6190) won't even get to the BIOS screen.  I took the battery out and held the power button for 30 seconds and when I reconnect the power supply the power light comes on for a few seconds and the switches off for a few seconds a few times before finally staying on.  I tried swapping the memory chips and reseating the hard drive  The screen stays completely black and there is no sound.  Please help.  Thanks.

I have the INSP 7568 and I cannot find the battery or how to find the reset button.

 Please help I purchased it late fall I think n if the mother board has to bend replaced after such a short time then I want another machine.

I have never had one bit of trouble with Dell at home or work but it will not turn on now n was charged all night.

Power box indicates power although maybe another part of power like the switch is dead.

I am an accounting professor we have four dell laptops at home 2 dell notebooks at home 2 dell printers at home n 2 new desktops at work.

Also Microsoft charged me  $750 to clean malwere in the hardware even though I have the best extended warranty from Dell available then -  I had turned it on less than 5 times when the

Trojan malware virus message from MDFT locked my screen n keyboard only to be informed by Dell that my expensive Dell  warranty only covered SW not HW.

Expensive concierge service via Dell equally useless.

Please help!!!

I'm Happy you had yours fixed. Here's my thoughts about those folks whom don't have a chance with the Dell junk like myself. I have two Dell devices that the motherboard are toast. The first is a 

Latitude ST

 and the second is this junk which I purchased for my child in school.

Inspiron 3531
<Admin Note: private customer data deleted>

The 15" Laptop was purchased new online and worked great for about a year and a month. I reloaded Windows when it first started to happen thinking it was not coming out of sleep. Well after reading here I would say it may need a board. The funny thing is the Dell ST tablet is the same way? HMMM I see a pattern here! The internet is littered with folks having the same issues as we are on this thread. I feel Dell is aware of the issue and needs to take care of those folks that purchased these items. What do you think? Sorry about the <Admin Note: profanity deleted> but I use pc's all day and in my 43 years I never had two pc's same brand different models same supplier have the same issues. Please feel feel to search the internet because this is not just me. Google for the Dell st tablet and the Inspiron 3531 issues they are the mother board 95% of the time. I guess I'm done now with the <Admin Note: profanity deleted> and with Dell anything.
