Hello,
In most of the Inspiron laptops, '8 beeps' code is for the LCD failure. Pressing D and power button will initiate a diagnostics test on the LCD of your computer.
May I know if this issue is intermittent or happens every time you power on the computer?
Regards

This is the first time I am getting this issue. And even after me pressing S along with power button I am still seeing the blank screen.
