Do you know how to get into the BIOS setup see what BIOS you have?

That way maybe someone here can check that BIOS manufacturer since you may not be able to and know from the pattern of beeps what exactly it can be.

Since you tried the RAM so far.

I don't know how to get to the BIOS setup.
From what I've read you need to see text or the dell logo at boot up to get to it, and I don't see either.
Do you know of another way?

Well is says F2 key to get into Bios Utility,but if i recall you still have no picture to see it?Have not determined if was RAM or a the video chip.From previous posts with the other tech here.
If there is anyway to describe the pattern of beeps can research it for you from model number you have.

Sorry for the radio silence. I had someone look at the laptop, they say the graphics card is bad.

Sorry to hear that too.Hope it does not cost you too much.
I see my first guess on post of this problem was correct the graphics card.Although my luck with an older PC similiar to your problem was the RAM.
Best of luck with it!
