I have a Dell laptop and when it is trying to boot up it gives one beep ever four seconds continuously until I hold down the power button to turn off. It will eventually boot up after I turn off and on for a while. (once took over an hour for it to finally boot up) I've called Dell, but of course it's out of warranty. I have tried to reseat the RAM a couple times, but that doesn't fix it. Right now I'm delaying a Window's update installation reboot because of this problem. :(

It tried to reboot overnight so now I am trying to boot up. I tried to do the hard reset and it is still having this problem.
