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.

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 Loud Clicking Coming From The Laptop

Mar 5, 2009

I have had my Vostro 1500 for around 18 months now and it has been problem free so far until yesterday evening.

Basically my girlfriend was doing a bit of surfing and I had some music streaming at the same time. All of a sudden there was a loud clicking coming from the laptop.

I thought it was the music at first! but I managed to mute the sound and it was the laptop. It was quite a loud click happening at least twice a second .....

Dell Inspiron 1545 :: Laptop Won't Turn On But Beeps Loudly

Jan 28, 2013

I am having troubles with my dell inspiron 1545. It has been working fine, but I just tried to switch it on, and it won't boot. After pressing the 'on' button, the cd drive flashes and makes a noise, like it normally does when I switch the laptop on. Then nothing happens for a whole minute, and then a loud repetitive beep starts. It's 4 beeps in a row, which then gets repeated. I have let the beep continue, but it doesn't seem to stop, unless I either press the 'on' button again or take the battery out.

Dell Vostro 860 :: Laptop Does Not Turn On?

Mar 24, 2013

Pressing I/O Start Button results in nothing (no blinks, sound, nothing at all).

Blue "Ready Light" lights up when plugged in.

Swapped out AC adapter with one from a Latitude 510 Laptop. Numbers were all identical. 

The Vostro ac adapter works on the Latitude 510.

The Latitude 510 ac adapter has the same result as the Vostro power supply. Ergo, ac adapter  is good.

The I/O switch appears to be loose. (Probable problem.)

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.

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 15z 5523 :: Intermittently Make A Repeated Series Of 5 Loud Beeps

Jan 24, 2015

I have a DELL Inspiron 15z 5523 which intermittently make a repeated series of 5 loud beeps. The support site seems to suggest a problem with the CMOS/Bios coin cell battery. So I presume I need to replace this. Does this sound right?

I have the user manual that shows how to replace this battery (after taking everything apart!) which looks do-able. But I can't find out what kind of coin cell battery I need to buy for replacement.

Dell Inspiron N5010 :: Won't Turn On - No Beeps / Lights

Feb 7, 2013

I recently changed the screens on my laptop without difficulty. The next day i went to classes and brought my laptop since it was now fixed. When i went to turn it on it was very dark and i couldn't adjust the brightness. I couldn't get pass the log on screen so i held down the power button but it would not turn off so i took out the battery. I put the battery back in and left the laptop alone till i got home. I thought that the problem with the screen was a wire came loose or something of that nature so i took apart the screen and made sure everything was plugged in. I put it back together and put the battery back in and went to turn it on to see if the screen problem was resolved and it wouldn't boot or anything. I don't get any beeps, fans, or lights that turn on.
