it is beeping continuously (not 4 not 7 beeps) with intervals and by luck sometime it boots, no dell icon nothing black screen, Please help this is my first experience with dell.
Good luck to all of you with this hardware issue. I have been dealing with Dell of the last year, I contacted them because of the 7 beeps issue.
Had the motherboard placed 4 times, heat sink twice, hard drive and software, all within 6 MONTHS.
Sorry to say problem still exists.
Dell is having issues with their product and are not taking responsibility.
VERY DISAPPOINTED. Will not buy Dell again.
I am sorry about the situation; try releasing the static power and check the system is working. Follow the steps below.
Switch off the system; remove the battery, ac adapter and the power cable. Press and hold down the power button for thirty seconds to drain any excess static power.
In case the problem persists, Please pay close attention to the number of beeps. There is a big difference between a “beep-beep-beep” beep code and a “”beep-beep” beep code. Let us know how many times the system beeps.
Let us know about the progress.

I have tried to release static power many times but it never works, it is merely on chance that my laptop shows dell icon then I keep my laptop in sleep mode rather than shutting it down, I have observed beeps very carefully they are continuous no trend or what, its simple tuck tuck tuck from speakers.
Please run the hardware diagnostics follow the steps below.
Press the FN + Power which will initiate the hardware diagnostics. Let us know if there is any error code listed.
I have tried power = fn key together nothing happened instead I have to wait for my luck again when it will boot, its annoying tuck tuck again, please help and suggest me !
Please shut down the laptop, press the FN key first and then press the power button, this will intitate the hardware diagnostics.
Let me know about the progress.

I have the same problem please help.
I switch on and the screen is black. The computer just makes a continuous clicking/beeping/tuck noise.
I have tried many times to clear the static etc and this does not help.
I have a Dell Inspiron 15R 3521.
All of the LED lights are blue on the front of the machine.
Also pressing the FN key and starting up will not help as the screen is completely black!
Please connect an external monitor and check if the issue persists. There is a pattern of beeps like “beep-beep-beep” beep code and a “”beep-beep” beep code. Let us know how many times the system beeps.
I have tried connecting an external monitor but I get the same problem. Like I said it is a continuous beeping noise more like a clicking/ tuck tuck sound. I left it last night and it didn't stop for an hour until I turned it off.

3 beep code on Dell Inspiron 3521 indicates it’s an issue with systemboard you will have to replace the systemboard.
I would suggest you to update the BIOS on the system. Please enter your service tag # on the link below, select the OS, then download the BIOS from BIOS section onto the system and install it.
