I recieved my dell laptop on 3/01/2011, and now is just a paper weight. It has the 7 beep dead alarm. I made contact with dell and i was told that it was out of warrenty and it would cost me around $200.00 to fix if the motherboard had to be replaced. Now if i did this, in another 1.5 yrs i would have to do it all over. Dell says there is NO ongoing issue with this model.
