    remove your hard drive and see if it passes that point and tries to boot, if yes, you have a hard drive problem, if not you may have an issue with any of the many temperature sensors in the system, none of which are serviceable, but no worries, parts are cheep, a new system board for example usually costs around 20 bucks

It is definitely your CMOS battery! This is not the battery that you can get to from outside, but must open the computer and expose the motherboard. I would be glad to help you in this matter. I have a computer repair business. Call 302-514-9170 Alpha Team Computer Repair. Thank you for choosing us!

Hi Vagelis Hazarin,

Request you to try following the below steps which might help:

    (1)Turn off the computer.
    (2)Remove all the external peripherals like AC Adaptor, flash drives, battery, etc.
    (3)Press and hold the power button for 30sec which releases the static on the computer (if any)
    (4)Put back the battery (if present) and plug in the AC Adaptor.
    (5)Let the computer charge for some time.

    Now try turning on the computer. If still same issue then check if there are any series of beep codes emitted from the computer and see if there are any lights glowing on the computer.

    The computer might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the LCD cannot display errors or problems. These repetitive beep codes help the user troubleshoot problems with this computer.



    Thanks and Regards.
    Kiran Kumar.

Ram is most likely your problem
try a new card if you only have one in your mechine
swap them out running one at a time if you have more than one, find and replace the bad one,
you can't run it with no ram, but you can with only one card

  • NOEL
    NOEL Mar 29, 2015

    yes it could,but i have been repairing laptop and desk tops for over 20 years now and all i can say,with out have it in front of me it could be all of what i have said so far.the fan,the prosser.the ram.or as you said it could be motherboard.so if you have tryd all of what we have talked about and it still dont run then yes it could be motherboard.but i dont think it is.but i could be wrong.

  • NOEL
    NOEL Mar 29, 2015

    then if its not working on external then it has got probs.

  • VAGELIS HAZARIN
    VAGELIS HAZARIN Mar 29, 2015

    CPU or mainboard? Listen the sequence is 1 long beep 2 short beep 2 short beep. In Bios beep DMA failure..?

  • NOEL
    NOEL Mar 29, 2015

    it could be either of them,mind you if it was cpu i dont think you would get the bleeps,not sure on that on.

  • VAGELIS HAZARIN
    VAGELIS HAZARIN Mar 29, 2015

    So mainboard but Dell fault processor says it is 7 beeps and 5 beeps says Real Time Clock Failure.

  • NOEL
    NOEL Mar 29, 2015

My dell inspiron beeps 20 times at sturtup


I wonder if you have a keyboard issue. Most times the constant beeping means the keyboard is bad, but it doesn't normally boot or revert back to 5 or 4 beeps.

I have Dell inspiron 1564 (windows 7 64 bit). The monitor goes blank with a screeching noise. I have run the PSA diagnostics but it showed no problem. The laptop runs normally otherwise but this problems...


I now have the same problem with the same Dell model (1564) for the second time in less than a year from purchase. The last time it happened I called the service technician who fixed it. That makes me wonder if this may be a common defect in this dell model, which requires a technician visit every 4 months. I advise you to apply to the company and ask for solution such as providing you a different model as a substitute for the defective one.

I am using dell inspiron 1564 .now i cant even install a single game because of vga problem ... what shall i do now sir


As you are using dell inspiron 1564 it comes with a atleast 512mb graphics card by default. If you are not able to play games on it due to Vga problem first check you install the proper vga display drivers for the laptop or try to reinstall the vga display driver again from the drivers disk you get with the laptop. After installation of proper vga drivers all your games will work perfectly.
