I have a Dell n5040. When I try to turn on the laptop the screen is blank/black. And also it shuts itself down, then power up automatically. Then starts making these beaping noises.
Anyone help me?

This sounds like a motherboard problem. Only a qualified repair shop can diagnose the problem for sure. A motherboard replacement will likely cost more than buying a new laptop.

What are the beep sounds? One cause is bad memory. Try removing one memory module to see if that will help.

Good Luck
After it starts back up again, it makes 7 beeps. Then stops for about 3 seconds and repeaded does this until I shut it down manually. Also I just bought this computer 3 months ago.
