But when I hear beeps like that I see if reseating the RAM helps. Laptop repairs in general run about 1/2 of a new machine. Some have a hard time understanding why.
Hello, I have a question. I hope that someone can help in any way.
I have a Dell Inspiron 1501. I got it at the end of 2007 and the operating system is Windows Vista.
The other day, I tried turning it on and I will try to explain what happens the best that I can. When I press the power button, the fan comes on, the lights on it flash (like is always does). But nothing comes up on the screen and the fan goes off. After a few moments, it beeps. There is one long beep and two short beeps. I was told about "beep codes" by a friend, but I don't know what kind of BIOS this computer has. I have tried searching, but I can't find that out.
So, if anyone knows what this issue might be please let me know. Also, if you happen to know, tell me how much it might cost. I'm not going to put a ton of money into getting this thing fixed.
