Question about Dell Inspiron M5030 Laptop

1 Answer

Dell Inspiron M5030 screen won't turn on, beeps 7 times. I've replaced the device, but I desperately need files off of it (a school project, most importantly). Stupidly, I didn't back up the files. Is there a way, and what do I need, to retrieve the files on my new Windows 8 device?

SOURCE: My Dell Inspiron m5030 won't turn on. It was

Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->System Restore

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.

Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

Just try this and leave a feedback for next steps.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 15R 7 beeps of death

Your best bet is to contact DELL themselves. There may have been a silent recall for your product which you don't know about, and they might repair it at their cost, But with this kind of situation, always go to the manufacturer first.

How do i replace cpu on my dell inspiron m5030 and what prorcessor will i need?


I would confirm it is faulty first. I have been in the electronics industry working with processors and have never come across a faulty processor!. Is the oscillator running? Has it got 3v3 supply?
If you feel the need to replace it, take the old one out and order the exact part number that is printed on the processor.

Can you check in your CMOS to see if you have the system password enabled? If so you may need to disable it.

M5030 won't start,just beeps 7 times.


This is a motherboard and power supply issue - you most likely cannot fix it yourself. I have attached a link where someone got their system back up temporarily, but it won't last. You need to replace the motherboard ASAP.
