Exclamation Fujitsu Siemens L7320GW DEAD !!!

I have the above laptop and when I turn it on will beep 3 times then a short pause then one beep. Replaced memory, took hdd out, took out bios batery + hard reset and nothing. If no memory in it same error beeps. It's like it's not seeing the memory at all! What should I do, any ideeas? Cheers

It's either not finding the video card or not finding the ram. Without knowing which BIOS it's using, I can't say for sure what the error code is, but it sounds to me like the mobo is toast.

Ok, looks like it is using an AMI BIOS, according to Fujitsu Seimens. The beeps seem to indicate bad RAM. Since you've swapped the RAM and you still get the same code, that suggests the problem is in fact a bad memory controller, which means a bad mobo.

Is there a difference in the beeps (3 short, 1 long, etc)?

No difference between the beeps, only one gap between the third and the fourth.

And do we really care if Japan or Germany is at fault? Oops, they both were once upon a heimat.
