    Default Dell Inspiron 15 - 3 beep motherboard error code but seems to be working fine.

    Hey guys,

    whenever I power on my Dell laptop (about 6 months old) it gives me the three beep error code over and over again. Strange part is the computer works just fine. Any advice?

    There are several and different beeps meaning different things. Could be one of several things including faulty RAM, faulty Board.

    If it's only six months old, take it back to supplier, they will fix it under warranty.

    There are several different Models in the Inspiron range . The following site should cover most though:

    dell-inspiron-15r-n5110-beep-codes-diagnostic-indicators/ But as KD posted, its under warranty, DONT leave it to run out or they will say tough luck.
