SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 700m won't start

Hi,
It sounds like there is an issue with the system memory.

Remove both the power adapter and the battery. Turn the laptop over and locate the RAM (memory) cover and remove the holding screw.
Take out the system memory and clean the brass contacts, also clean the slots that the memory sits in.
Re-seat the memory making sure it clips into place nice and tight and replace the RAM cover.

Return power to the laptop and turn it on to see if that has helped.

If it still won't boot up then you may need to purchase new memory for the laptop.

Good luck.

Black Screen with 3 Beep Tones !


Probably memory stick(s). Are you comfortable taking a laptop apart to get at the memory sticks? If not, take it to a repair shop BUT at 9 months old, most units have a 1 year warranty. Contact the mfg with your purchase date, etc.

Black Screen with 3 Beep Tones !


Return the laptop to the place of purchase because you still have warranty coverage, any tampering will void warranty.

I have an IBM T20 and when I start it up, the screen does not come on, don't hear hard disk working, but the fan is working. There is beeping when started - 3 beeps, then follow by 3 beeps, and then 1...


That is likely. The beeps represent an error code. You might try borrowing an external monitor plugged into your laptop to see if anything shows on that screen when it boots up.

My acer travelmate 250 wont start up whaen i switch it on its just a black screen and it bleeps 3 times then just knocks off


If you are getting beeps on startup and nothing shows on screen possibly the RAM of your system is gone bad.

You might try reseating the RAM to get this issue fixed, If you have more than 1 memory stick try loading one stick at a time to understand which of the RAM is gone bad.
