Hi this sounds like a memory/ram issue you need to power of your machine, remove the power cable & then without the power cable connected, press & hold the power button for 15 seconds until it makes a chime noise, that is a basic power function reset, if that does not solve it, remove the memory cover panel on the under side of your laptop then carefully remove the memory chips blow or vacuum the area & use a dry piece of tissue to very gently clean your memory of any dust, replace the ram chips & re-connect power cord, this should solve it, but if not try starting up again without the power cord, if it's successful without the power cord you'll need a new 1, if not it suggests your ram chips have gone bad & you may need to purchase new ram chips, good luck :-) you can find more info about the 5 beeps here: Computer Does Not Start and Emits an LED or Beep Code
I would need more information to give you a better idea of what may be going on. But from the limited information given, i would say it is probably a driver issue. What more than likely happened was, your computer automatically installed a updated driver for a hardware device on your laptop. This happens often is usually a headache for most users but a fairly easy fix.
1. Turn off your laptop where it is not restarting anymore and is completely off.
2. Turn on your laptop, then immediately press the F8 key repeatedly several times a second. You will be prompted by a new black screen with several options.
3. Choose the option that says : repair your computer
4. The computer will start a diagnosis of why your computer will not POST. Which means why it will not make it to the operating system.
5. If you still have the same issue, Do steps 1 & 2 again, then instead of choosing the option: Repair your computer, Choose the option: Last known good configuration.
6. If you still have the same issue, Do steps 1 & 2 again, then Choose the option: Repair your computer, then choose the option restore or recovery/ image recovery.
WARNING! IF YOU CHOOSE TO DO A RECOVERY/ IMAGE RECOVERY, YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING ON THE LAPTOP!
INCLUDING PROGRAMS, PICTURES, VIDEOS, MUSIC, DOCUMENTS ETC.
I STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU HAVE A PROFESSIONAL GET BACK-UP OF YOUR FILES AND THEY WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO RECOVER YOUR COMPUTER TO FACTORY CONDITION.
The reason with your laptop does not boot is power chord does not plug in...memory problem...operating system and corrupted hdd...
Check the power chord if properly plug to the outlet
Check the memory if you heard 3 beep or 8 beep...if you hear 3 beep...the memory is not installed properly...check and install properly...if you hear 8 beep you need to replace the memory with new one...if you hear a continuous beep...the memory...discard the memory...open the laptop then off immediately...then install the memory again...
if the problem still exist...
Please go to the nearest repair center to fix the problem. Because it is very fatal and need assistance from a technician
For the Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Netbook, 7 beeps indicates bad memory (system RAM). The memory will need to be replaced.
The RAM can be replaced using a small Phillips screwdriver and removing the back-plate on the bottom of the laptop. When you see the memory (sticks around 3 inches long), pull those out and put new ones in. Make sure it's the correct DDR2 memory.
That just means that it can detect lack of memory, which means the motherboard is working (to an extent anyway) - and the fact that you hear a fan tells me that your problem is with your screen. So the screen is dead or has a problem and the computer is loading but you just cant see it.
A new screen isnt cheap, a new inverter is, with luck you just need a new inverter, usually these are around £25 depending on the model. Either way you need a specialist company to fix this for you. If you like (depending on your area) I can reccomend a good one near you. Otherwise just make sure they operate on a no-fix no-fee and the price is reasonable.
Remove the 1 gig chip. Pull you battery out and unplug the laptop. Hold the power button in for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug the laptop back in again and try booting it up. This should reset the BIOS and allow it to boot. The beep codes you are talking about are a memory beep code and it is normally caused by adding memory or a loose memory stick. Also try pulling the existing memory and resetting it.
Ok, now turn over the laptop, plug in the ac power. start up, the laptop should beep without the memory modules. Ones you have heard the beeping you can turn off the laptop, insert one memory module back, plug the ac power back, you might want to place the memory cover back in incase theres something that might damage the laptop when you turn it over again and try to start up.
at this point i suspect you should get picture, if you get picture, go ahead and place the other memory module back in, close the cover, and the problem should be fixed. drop me a comment if not.
