Dell Inspiron N5010 8 beeps on start up

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have a Dell Inspiron N5010 and it was fallen down from my bed, since then it stopped working. Whenever I try to power it up it beeps 8 times in series.

I have gone through various discussions in dell community regarding this and have done the following tests.

LCD test (D + power-on)  : This test runs fine, able to see solid colors and on restart it again gives 8 beeps

Fn + Power-on : This doesn't work. As I could see in the discussions, this should run a diagnosis test. But in my case nothing happens, 8 beeps continues.

Few posts suggested to remove the CMOS battery for a while and place it again. That too didn't work.

Reconnected the LCD cable and tries, problem still exists.

Can anyone suggest me what might have went wrong?

Thanks in Advance.

Next to do is replace the video cable -- if that doesn't solve the problem, it's likely the mainboard was damaged in the fall.

Thanks a lot!!

Apparently the video cable on the LCD side was disturbed. I rearranged the cable once and it started working just fine.
 Thanks again, for the help
