WARNING BEEP- DELL LAPTOP INSPIRON

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have a laptop DELL Inspiron, with i3 processor (n series).

Yesterday, it suddenly started giving a long beep, without affecting any other program. Meaning everything was working fine except the continuous sound.

I tried everything advised to me by the dell experts, like taking out the RAM (I have 2 rams of 1 GB each, and took out the RAMS one by one), the battery, the power supply and so on, but the beep is still present. Eventually I had to disable the sound card.

By the way I have Realtek High definition audio card. I checked the driver from the dell website, as well as from the Relate, and can confirm that I have the latest drivers.

I am really worried that what could be wrong with my system. Please note, the system has passed its warranty period, and if I give it to any technician, I have to pay. Can it be avoided?  Has anybody else experienced this issue?

Hello Roger,

This can be a hardware failure. First of all checkout your RAM. Just take it out and see. If it doesn't beep then surely it's your RAM that's creating the problem? There might be a problem with BIOS Battery. Also check out your Video card,  Your video memory might be creating a problem. System memory can also be a problem. Check that out too.

If the above mentioned tricks works for you then that's fantastic, if not then I think its time to bring your laptop to a service center. There can be a major issue with your hardware, so service center might be a big help.

Thanks!!

As soon as you are in Windows does the sound start or does it start only at a time during POST or right after your turn the computer on? The speakers would normally make a sound or beep continuously if a key is stuck or when you have hit on a certain key more time per second than normal. It could be as simply as a stuck key or it could be a sign of a hardware problem. Try running a thorough diagnostics test on your computer to make sure. If everything passes, try reinstalling Windows and see if the problem persists.
