Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Could you let us know of the beep code order that the laptop is displaying? Like 2 short, 2 long.

Sounds like a bad Power Supply Unit (PSU).

Why would HP support be helping with your Dell Inspiron laptop?

Also, 4 short beeps on a Dell system refers to bad memory, not the power supply unit.
