When you see the red led that is telling you there is a motherboard problem . Really helpful isn't it?
There are only a few things that will stop it from shoing more life that that. One is a bad power supply or bad ram. Those will stop it from showing anything or doing anything. A bad cpu usually shows more of the boot sequences before it stops. If you were seeing any errors or any blue screens just before this happened then it is most likely the ram. Because it isn't showing any post codes or beeps then the problem will be in the #1 module. To do post tests the first 64k or ram or so needs to be good. If you have more than one ram module take them out and put the #2 into the #1 spot. If it works then it is your old #1 ram module.

You should also try reseating your ram and the cables and any connectors. While not common the odd time that will be the cause.

If you cannot see any change after swapping ram then you may have a more serious problem on the board itself. Probably 9 out of 10 times the cause is the ram.

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok

First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

Won't stay on

May be your motherboard. Uninstall your ram memory units and see what it does. Their under the laptop behind small cover that you need to unscrew. If not very tech savvy, then i suggest taking it to the nearest (and chapest) computer shop for diagnostic.

Dell gives free tech support forever. If you are out of warranty, you pay the cost of parts; but they will give you the help you need. Just get the "tag number" from the cabinet before you call.
