Hi Raj,

4 beeps is the indication of memory failure. Please reseat the memory & check. If the issue persists, place one memory at a time and check. Try both the memory modules in both the slots. This will help us to isolate which memory slot or memory is causing the issue.

Hi, 

I have exactly the same problem.... I four beeps when trying to start my notebook. 

I followed the instructions to reseat the memory and also tried both modules in both slots, one at a time, with no success so far. Do you have any further suggestions?

Hi  Spezi,

Thank you for trying the suggested steps. You may try one last step that is to try with known good memory. If the issue duplicates even with known good memory, then the connectors on the motherboard are faulty.

Let me know your findings.
