I have a Dell Inspiron 15 series laptop (model 3521), purchased very recently. A few days back, the laptop was a little roughly handled as i was trying to put it in a tray for check-in. Since then, whenever i switch it on, the laptop gives one beep, only one, before it starts up normally. However, this single beep was never heard before and i am worried as this is a brand new laptop. Should i be worried?
the dell manual suggests that the bios checksum failed, but doesnt suggest if there is a fix or whether the system should boot at all. if you log into the dell support site, it might be worth checking to see if there is a bios update.
