See p.47 of your manual
ftp://ftp.dell.com/Manuals/all-products/esuprt_laptop/esuprt_inspiron_laptop/inspiron-15-intel-n5010_setup%20guide_en-us.pdf
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.

    How do i determine the meaning of one long and two short beeps on a dell inspiron 2650 laptop ?


    Hi Glen Growe,

    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 and plug in the AC Adaptor.
      (5)Let the computer charge for some time.

      Now check and let me know if there are any status lights and if the computer still beeps. If yes, observe what type of beeps are emitted from the computer.

      Thanks and Regards.
      Kiran Kumar.

    Memory upgrade on gx280 beeps on boot but doesn't start. memory beeps 1 234 5 6


    When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer. The other issue is if that model supports 4 gig memory.

    My Dell inspiron 13r laptop is emitting a very high pitched noise when it is on. I have tried reinstalling my audio drives but nothing seems to be working... Please help


    If it is a relatively quiet, high pitched noise, it may not even be from your speakers. I've experienced a high pitched noise whenever i plug in my AC adapter to my PSP, so there is a chance it might be power related.

    Good afternoon The system has a red light flashing constantly and is emitting 3 beeps every thirty seconds. Thanks for your help.


    The battery in your UPS needs to be replaced. You can contact the manufacturer for a replacement battery -- depending on your warranty, they may replace it for free.

    My Dell CPi D266XT will not power up. The light on the power cord is flashing green. When I push the power button nothing happens. None of the lights flicker like it's even trying to come on.


    Hi,

    It is possible that the other end of your power adaptor is defective or just loose. Tighten it securely and try to test if it is emitting voltages by using a multi-tester.

    It can also be that there is a problem with the connection form your power adaptor going to the main board of your laptop.

    This is a very technical problem so I suggest you let a laptop technician look at it.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks!

    Inspiron 531s will not boot up, keeps beeping, saying it is in power save mode. How do I fix the problem


    System Beep Codes The Inspiron™ 531 / 531s system can emit a series of beeps during start-up if the display cannot show errors or problems. These series of beeps, called beep codes, identify various problems. One possible beep code consists of repetitive three short beeps. This beep code indicates the computer encountered a possible system board failure.
    The series of beeps has a 3-second delay before it repeats. The series and delays continually loop until you press the power button.
    Code Description Suggested Remedy 1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure System board failure; covers BIOS corruption or ROM error 2 No memory modules detected
    1. If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
    2. If available, install a good memory module of the same type into the computer.
    3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
    3 Chipset error (North and Southbridge chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel® platform); chipset error System board failure. Power LED is blinking amber. Time-Of-Day Clock test failure Gate A20 failure Super I/O chip failure Keyboard controller test failure 4 RAM read/write failure
    1. Ensure no special memory module/memory connector placement requirements exist.
    2. Verify the memory modules you are installing are compatible with the computer.
    3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
    5 Real time clock failure. Possible battery failure or system board failure.
    1. Replace the battery.
    2. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
    6 Video BIOS test failure Video card failure 7 CPU cache test failure Processor failure

    I have a red vertical line on my dell inspiron laptop.How do I remove it?,please


    Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If themonitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel isdefective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then yourproblem is with either the video card or motherboard located insideyour laptop.
    -------------------------------------------------------

    Another answer:

    run the PSA diagnostics. to do so, press and holdany non-keyboard button( like the internet hotkey or access directbutton or even the speaker mute button) and then press the power buttonand power up your system. if your inspiron doesn't have a non-kbbutton, then press the <fn> key.
    release both the buttons and the diagnostics begin to run.after thediags finish. if the monitor is working fine, it'll simply say"passed". however, if it fails it would emit a few beep codes.carefully check those beep codes:
    1.) if you get a 3-3-3 or a 3-3-4 error beeps, then we use the LCDbuilt in self-test (BIST). boot to PSA diagnostics again. Watch thescreen and listen for the color bar test prompt tones emitted by thePSA Diagnostics. Press <N> or wait approximately 30 seconds tofail the color bar test. The system will emit a 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 PSAerror after failing the color bar test. Wait for two iterations of thefailure code then press <Y>.
    Watch for the BIST color generation and listen for the single beeps that indicate LCD BIST is running.
    NOTE: Patterns of flashing color should appear on the screen. Withevery color change, an audible beep will be heard. If the patterns ofcolor do not appear, and the beeps are audible, an LCD failure may bethe issue. If the patterns of color appear, a video card or motherboardfailure may be the issue.

    2.)if you get an error code apart from 3-3-3 or 3-3-4 :Ensure thesystem is powered off. Press and hold the <Fn> key and press thepower button to power the system on. Release both buttons.
    The PSA diagnostics sequence begins. Make note of any alert tones or error messages.
    error codes:
    123- memory fails
    141,142,143,144,145,146 hard drive error
    147- IDE optical drive fails
    148 optical drive built in test fails
    122-memory test initialization test failure
    111- fatal diagnostics exception.

    i really hope you dont get any of these. these will help you determine,if you need to change the LCD. when you call dell, they will run youthrough these steps anyways. so if you finish them beforehand, you wontpay much to talk to them. cheerio then.
