Just a year and four months and my Dell Inspiron died on me. Three beeps and it refused to run. A friend of mine I'd going to take a look at it. It was an intel3. How long did your computer last you?

My last computer made it 8 years before finally deciding it was done with this life.

8 years say that's great! My computer lasted me a little over a year only.

This Mac has been ticking for something like 8 years. Dells suck and I made the mistake having two of them.

You know I thought Dell was good too. Your Mac is good? Different surfing on Safari?

it was my dad’s laptop and after I think less than five years it was broken because Its battery get drained easily that you need it plugged to the sucket all the time until it doesnt work. He got it fixed and now it is working fine again.

@oahuwriter yes, Krisstina. My dad has a new laptop though which is smaller for work. So we use that one that was fixed. Thank you, my friend.

@oahuwriter Maybe it has something to do with your hard drive. Has it been repaired?

@oahuwriter Try to replace the hard drive. Check the Bios first if it's working.

Well, my HP laptop lasted for many years, more than 6 years. I gave it to our son and he is still using it to this day. I have had the Lenovo laptop I am using now for about 1 year.

@oahuwriter I just chose the Lenovo because it was not as expensive as the others at Best Buy. So far, it is doing pretty well.

@Corbin5 I brought my Dell at Office Depot on sale too, but unfortunately it didn't last me for to long.

Did your computer ever get hit by some hard material? If yes, there may be some internal damage to the system. If no then that's a technical error. Intel always makes quality chips. No problem with it. As your computer is only 1.5 years, It may have some operating system fault.

Hopefully my friend who is going to look at it will find something small and fixable too. But my friend said if it's beeping 3x it's bad.

My computer was bought ten years ago, and now it is still working. I seldom use it now. Cell phone is more convenient.

I am using a Dell inspiron for five years now. However I will soon have to get something new, because recently it has been acting up a bit.

My previous one lasted for about 4 years, I think. Your laptop had a short lifespan.
