DELL INSPIRON M5030, black screen and 7 beeps

This question is not answered

Hi Community

I'm a DELL user for more than a year now and I'm having trouble with my DELL M5030. Whenever I open up my laptop it only gives me a black screen and 7 beeps. already checked memory and its working, thinking it it a memory issue. Also, I tried following some info in this community like powercycle the laptop by draining the battery and start it over. I really need help. Hopefully someone will give me instructions how to fix this issue. Thanks
