Question about Dell Inspiron 6000 Notebook
Depending on whether the issue is powering on, or booting to the OS, will determine the failure in the system. If the system powers on but will not boot to the hard drive, then the answer may be the HDD is slow to spin up to operating speed. If this is the case, then multiple attempts to start the computer will spin up the drive but it will not stop spining before the next attempt. After several tries, the HDD gets to operating speed fast enough and boots.
If the system is not powering on at all, then I suspect a problem in the switch itself/motherboard.

4 beeps (1 long-2 short- 1 long) is a Programmable Interval
Timer code (motherboard error). And 1-2-1 is a Processor Register Failure
(CPU). About your only hope with a
laptop is to pull the battery and (highly recommended if at all possible) pull
the RTC battery and then press down on the power switch for a few seconds to
totally re-set the BIOS. If no joy, you might
one at a time remove the RAM, hard drive and the CD to rule out a short in
those components. Next step involves
removing the keyboard, etc. to get to components such as the LCD and the
network card. Pull them one at a time and
try booting. When you have tested all
the peripherals that are plugged onto the MB, you can assume that the motherboard is toast.
