I have the same laptop. Less then two years old. I never let anyone use it, as it is my baby. I stepped away from it to check on my dog, and when I came back the screen was black. When I hit the power button, I get the seven beeps. It is ridicoulus that a $500+ laptop would not last more then a year and a half!
Joke isn't it. Luckly I had product insurance otherwise I was told it could be around 160!!! It should not be happening to a 500 pound laptop. I heard they are not admitting there is a fault with that specific model. Just got it back from them having it twice and it's still not working as it originally was. So might send it back. Does the blank screen sometimes, only had it twice happen to me since its been returned but no beeps. Turn it off and turn it back on and its fine. Had mine for a 21st birthday present so I pretty much take care of it aswell.
As suggested in my previous reply in this thread,beep codes can be used as diagnostic indicators.On your system model 7 beeps indicates processor failure.
Does the system shut down automatically when the screen goes black or does it stay on without any display?
Try running the hardware diagnostics(tap F12 on start up,Dell logo,select Diagnostics) and post back error code/message if any.

I read this solution on another forum concerning the same problem. I have an M5030 had the same 7 beeps. Suggestion was to remove the motherboard, take out all of the plug-ins (battery, ram, cpu, graphics chips). Make 4 two-inch aluminum foil balls to place under each corner of the motherboard and put the thing in a cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 minutes in an oven preheated to 385 degrees. Open door and let cool for at least two hours. It was worth a shot - AND WORKED PERFECTLY!
What do you suggest?
Might as well throw it in the trash. It is fried! Mine was. Dell computers last 1 to 2 years and they are done. End of story.
