Laptop beeps 7 times


Try link: http://blog.parts-people.com/2014/06/27/dell-inspiron-m501r-m5010-beep-codes-diagnostic-indicators-2/ How to identify beep codes: When a laptop or computer first powers on, it goes through an initial set of diagnostic tests to make sure vital components are preforming correctly. These tests are called POST or Power On Self Test. When a test fails, the user is notified via POST codes, Light codes, or Beep codes. For diagnosing Beep codes you need to:
  • Power on the laptop or restart it if it is already on.
  • Listen to the number of consecutive beeps when the computer begins to boot. Restarting the laptop may be necessary and should not harm the laptop at this time.

I have a Dell Latitude C610; after initial 'DELL' screen comes up, the laptop gives one 'beep' then black screen and nothing more- power's still there; can get into setup and boot...


This chart details the specifics of what each 'beep code' means. Usually the codes come in series of 2-3 beeps not just one.
http://www.nullamatix.com/dell-diagnostic-beep-code-troublshooting-chart/
You should also make sure the 'dummy' stuff is done, like remove any floppy disks or CDs from the drive if you have one, and remove any USB drives from the laptop as they may try to boot off of them and not be able to. If you've done that, then check the chart in the link for further information. Sadly a non booting, beeping computer isn't a good sign. If I can be of any more help, please let me know.
Hope this response helps you out.
Best of luck!

Just upgraded Vista to Windows 7. Now when computer boots, it repeatedly beeps (so many times I can't count them), then asks which OS I want to start with. Only Windows 7 is listed. It starts fine.


Hello, if your computer peeps on startup it could be that your keyboard is stuck somehow thats why it beeps, it is sending and interupt request. try checking your keyboard to be sure its not stuck. happy new year

I have dell optiplex gx 150 beeps 6 times and a and b led is amber and c and d led is green


the 6 beep codes will be in a specific timing i.e. two beeps, a space 2 more beeps, and another space and 2 more beeps.

Looks like it may be a memory problem according to the lights.

Reseat all DIMMs and restart the system to retest.

Here is the link to the beep codes and diagnostic lights for your dell optiplex gx 150 HERE

The Beep codes are in Table 2 and the diagnostic lights are in Table 3.

Dell 1545, i turn it on and it sounds like it starts but it dosnt, then after 4 mins it beeps, 4 times like beep beep beep beep lol! it loaded up once but crashed when i tried to restart it? whats the...


4 short beeps means the system timer on the motherboard is bad. You can try reseating the power connectors on the MB and resetting the CMOS memory but it's probably the motherboard. DELL'S QUALITY HAS REALLY SLIPPED!

Can I upgrade a dell 900mhz p3 processor


Not really [ only possible might be to a faster P3 cpu]. Those motherboards are so old it would be cheaper to just buy a new system as Dell cases & power supplies, etc for that old a computer are all proprietary and would take major modification to upgrade to a new motherboard, ram, cpu and such. Hope this helps.

Upgrade GX150 from P3 933mhz to something better


yes, to 1.1 gigs is not difficult, much higher than that and you would have to upgrade the BIOS software.
