One suggested soution on the 7 beep I have heard is on YouTube. Basically they show you how to remove the motherboard and describe how to preheat and place it in your oven to reflow the solder connections. Did I do it no. Why I have been in electronics since 67. Familiar with PCB technology from one sided to multilayer PCB design, assembly, etc. This is an offshore fabrication or manufacturing assembly/soldering issue. Dell should stand behind there design and product, with all the fed and local gov contracts. I am a disabled veteran and can't afford the cost to repair, upgrade or talk to them. I know I will get the run around in and blow over the side stepping and word smithing via online.

If I had the money for a motherboard I would look at a way to upgrade the CPU/MB. Why pay and end up with the same thing when you can get better performance. Went to Computer Geeks in Oceanside. Those people are as worthless as ti.ts on a boar.

If you are reading Dell, your falling down on this one. Don't be like Obama and side step your inadequacies, the consequences are threateningly real. You are smarter.and more knowledgeable than that unqualif... <ADMIN NOTE: Substitute character removed as per TOU>

My Inspiron M5030 just came down with the same malady I see so many others have experienced with this machine. To wit, out of the clear blue sky, pc will not boot. Just sits giving 7 beeps every few seconds. Like others, I contacted Dell via online chat. Twice. Got the same story twice: Dell never heard of this issue with the M5030. Yet, both immediately quoted me $269 plus tax to repair. When I questioned both techs about their never having heard of the issue, both insisted Dell has never had a bad report from the Inspiron M5030. I did suggest they might want to either visit this forum or just google the issue. It would prove educational for them.  I also told them about the temporary work around I found online that actually works - it will get the machine to boot. Not a permanent fix. Next time you turn it on, same issue. So far the "fix" has worked for me 3 times. Long enough for me to copy a bunch of important data files. Both professed to have never heard of that technique.

 The "fix" for anyone interested in trying it, is: Wrap the pc in a thick blanket. Turn it on. Let it sit there & beep while securely wrapped for about 10 minutes. It will get hot.  Unwrap, turn it off and immediately turn it back on. It boots and runs normally until next time you shut it down.

The seven beeps on Inspiron M 5030 could mean the processor issue, try these steps. take out the AC adapter and the battery , then hold down the power button of the computer for 15-20 seconds. Then plug in the AC adapter and battery and try to power up the computer.

Ok here is the fix for Dell Inspiron m5030.   YouTube it.  Took everything off mother board.  Ram, Professor, wireless card,  dvd, hard drive just the motherboard.  Pre heated the oven to 385  and baked it on flat surface for 10 min.  Let cool for  20 min then put back together and works like a charm.  What they say is bad soldering on North bridge.

My Dell Inspiron M5030 recently stopped working; beeping 7 times with a black display.  I called the Dell repair number: 800-288-4410 , and the Tech wanted to charge me $259.00 to have it shipped and repaired.  I mentioned that Dell had performed this repair with FedEx shipping for FREE in support of other customers that experienced the same failure, but he said there could be "no exceptions".  This laptop is approx. 3 years old.  My next step is to file with the Better Business Bureau (***) to lodge a formal compliant because this appears to be a known manufacturer defect in the motherboard/CPU design.
