Answer to: 7 beep at startupI found an American webpage telling how to solve this within half an hour. At first I thought is was mad. I was desperate so I tried it. With the laptop on and beeping away wrap it up tightly in a large towel and place under the duvet. Leave it for 1/2 hour and then unwrap and switch off. Leave it to cool down and then switch on. I writing this on a dell laptop that had the 7 beeps and the above treatment. It works!!!
