    Hello to all.

    First i apologize for my bad english - it's not my native language.

    I have a Dell Inspiron:
    when i press the Power Button only the light on the Power Button goes on. Yesterday about 5 minutes after pressing PowerButton it made "Beep" 7 times - waiting "Beep" 7 times. Today only the light is on --> light does not switch off when i press the Button second time.

    Could you please help me?
    Greetings Max

    You didn't provide the model number or the service tag number of your "Dell Inspiron" so it can be properly identified.

    From what I can determine at this time, 7 beeps indicates a processor or motherboard problem.

    You have THIS Dell Inspiron 15R SE 7520 15.6" laptop which was purchased in April 2013 in Germany and came with Windows 8 Home 64-bit.

    A Dell laptop with a Dell BIOS that emits 7 beeps indicates an issue with the processor(CPU), but I haven't been able to confirm that.
