Question about Intel Dell Inspiron 15r N5010 Laptop Motherboard Y6y56
Laptop powered down and will not start up. Emitting 3 beeps on continuous basis
See p.47 of your manual
This says 3 beeps means "Possible system board failure - Chipset error" which sounds serious. Are you certain it is three beeps ? The manual recommends contacting Dell (see contacting Dell on p76). Inspect each chip on the m/b for damage (you may not find anything). You might try disassembly and reassembly of the computer (see Service Manual on Dell website) if you are competent to do this, and cleaning it out with a can of compressed air.
