Dell Vostro 3550 :: 8 Beeps On Startup With No Video Being Displayed

Apr 1, 2013

I have a Dell Vostro 3550 that I booted up this morning and received 8 beeps on startup with no video being displayed.  After reading the forums here is what I have done and the reults:

Boot up with External Monitor

Can log in and run computer, laptop still beeps 8 times for several times then stops beeping

Drain residual power from the laptop

Restart computer and still beeps 8 times without vidoe


Nothing displayed.

Run F12 Diagnostics
Error Code: 2000-0415
Validation: 58622

I am assuming I have a faulty LCD Screen and/or cable but want to be sure of this before spending the money as this laptop is no longer under warranty.

Dell Vostro 3550 :: When Turn On Laptop Loud Beeps Play

Feb 9, 2013

I bought a Vostro 3550 almost one year ago. About two weeks ago, most times I turn on the laptop, some loud beeps play (probably some warning beeps), but now, those beeps still make their presence, in lower intensity, during the usage of the machine. It is really irritating. I do not have a clue about what to look for or what it can be.

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavillion Dv6040 Startup Fail, 1 Long 2 Short Beeps. Probably Video Card

Oct 11, 2009

I have an HP Pavillion dv6040 laptop, 3 years old. Today, after 3 years of nearly flawless operation, it will not start. It gives 1 long and 2 short beeps, and then nothing. The lights turn on, the fans run, but the screen remains off (black with the backlight off).

I believe it is a video problem (looked up the beeps online). The laptop has an Nvidia GeForce 7200 Graphics card.

Or does anyone know if it's possible to replace the video card in such a laptop?

Why not the other. I even updated BIOS.

Apr 8, 2013

I have a Vostro 3550 and it is not even a year old. Last night I was typing an email and all of a sudden the screen turned black and was all static. This morning I was having difficulty turning it on but saw the boot screen and hit Enter to Boot normally. Then it went static again. I have tried turning it on with and without the power cord plugged in. I no longer can get it to even load to the boot screen.

I'm having a problem with my Dell Vostro 3550 Core i5, completely shut down Windows, screen off completely, but the power light and the keyboard still light, until the battery is completely discharged.

Dell Vostro 5470 :: 7 Partitions Displayed In Disk Management

Nov 28, 2013

I had a quick look at Disk Management on my new Vostro 5470, and there are not less than 7 partitions displayed over there.

The laptop has a SSD of 128GB installed. I know that GPT hard drives require several partitions (to be specific, I know only about ESP, MSR and data partitions only) - but 7? My data partition has only 99GB available. That surely isn't a lot.

I know that some sort of Intel recovery is installed, and I know that the Dell diagnostics is installed somewhere too.

Dell Vostro 3550 :: Fingerprint Reader - Biometric Devices Applet Not In Control Panel - Windows 7

Jan 3, 2015

Because of a virus, I recently had to reinstall Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I have gotten everything else working except the fingerprint reader.I have installed the Validity Fingerprint Reader driver from the Dell Support site. The fingerprint reader shows up in the Device Manager. However, the Biometric Devices applet doesn't appear in the Control Panel.

I tried letting Windows update detect the fingerprint reader. It installed a driver for a Synaptics device. This was enough to get the Biometric Devices applet to appear in the Control Panel. However, when I tried to configure the fingerprint reader, I got an error saying no fingerprint management software was installed. I have seen lots of posts online directing me to for drivers or the DigitalPersona software, but Validity Inc. seems to have gone out of business. The DigitalPersona software is available on the Dell Support site for my service tag.

I have even tried installing the Windows 8 Validity Sensor Driver for my laptop, but though it successfully installs, it produces the same results.

Dell Inspiron M5010 :: Beeps 7 Times On Startup?

Mar 25, 2013

Dell Inspiron M5010 is not powering up anymore: I get 7 beeps on startup and my screen remains black.

 I already read other posts and have removed battery, power buttom for 30 seconds. etc. It didn't work and I have not tried anything else.

One post talked about removing/replace the internal battery and another talked about remove/replace memory.

What is this the logical progression of things I should try before the Big Hammer?

Dell Inspiron 1121 :: Continuously Beeps On Startup

Apr 17, 2013

When turning on the computer,  I press the start button and I get the black screen with the words "Starting Windows" in the middle of the screen. As soon as the "Starting Windows" appears, the computer begins to beep continuously with short but fast-paced beeps. The beeping continues until the colored Windows Logo appears above the white words "Starting Windows" and then the beeping stops. The computer completes its start up and seems to operate normally. I did not time the beeping but I counted about 270 beeps. None of the keyboard keys seem to be stuck. I did remove and replace the battery which seemed to fix the problem on the very next start-up but when I shut the computer down and started it up the second time the beeping problem returned.

Dell Inspiron N7010 :: 8 Beeps On Startup And Blank Screen

Dec 7, 2014

My Inspiron N7010 was working fine until 2 days ago.  I had it playing a movie through the HDMI port to my TV & then the video started to freeze up.  Starting the next day, when I tried to start it up, it beeps 8 times & goes to a black screen, then eventually it turns off.  I opened it up & re-seated the CMOS battery & checked all the ribbons.  Tried holding the "d" key while powering on, the screen cycles through the colors & then goes black & powers off.  Tried connecting to 2 different external monitors, could not get a picture on either.

For some reason my Dell INSPIRON N5110 is not booting up correctly.  When I start it up the screen remains black for some time and starts to beep 4 times.
