Inspiron 5100 Beeps Only On Boot?

This question has been answered by ejn63

I got this laptop, and it gets to the bios with no problem. When you try to go any further than that, it will just beep? I replaced the hard, and memory and it still does it... Would this be a motherboard issue? Thank you for any input on this:)

  • If the system doesn't beep when no memory is installed, the mainboard is bad.

  • Remove the memory entirely - is the beep pattern the same, or does it change?

  • I did that, and its stops right after the bios and stay black.

  • Anyone know what this might be?

  • Is the beep pattern the same, or different with the memory removed?

  • It dont beep with the memory removed, it gets past the bios stage then goes black.

  • Bump:)
