i have an inspiron mini, i have this for 2 years, when i turned it on, it has an 8 short beeps. i have readt some of the post which have the same problem like mine. so i tried some test. i attached an external monitor, start the computer, i tried to remove the cable from the external monitor and it worked normally, as if there is no problem at all. so i turned it off, turn it back on, the problem returned, it beeps again. so everytime i want to use the laptop i attached the cable and removed it after it has been turned on.
what should i do to resolve this problem?so i can start the laptop without the cable.
Hi may anniver,
8 Beeps indicate LCD failure. Please run the built in diagnostics to check for LCD issues by following the below mentioned process. Turn the computer off >restart the computer
At the Dell logo screen, start tapping the F12 key a few times until you see the ‘One Time Boot Menu’ appear.
At the one time boot menu, press the down arrow key to highlight ‘Diagnostic’, and then press Enter to begin the PSA diagnostics.If the test fails, please make a note of any error codes listed. You can also refer to the link below.
Also private message me the system service tag so that I could check the system details and guide you further.
I have added you as a friend. Please accept my friend request by clicking on my name highlighted in blue and then click on “Friends” tab at the top and then click on “Request to Review” and finally click on “Accept” button.

Hi Sir, How do I check to see if my Dell Inspiron is out of warranty. The 8 beep situation is happening, but when I move screen back and forth sometimes it boots up correctly and sometimes it don't..
This indicates an LCD failure on the computer.
If the system is under warranty, kindly private message me the service tag of the computer.
Kindly Check warranty status from below mentioned link:
