8 beeps means 3 variants only:

1. Dead LCD (not in your case).

2. Loose cable connection, or display cable corrupted.

3. Dead graphic card.

8 гудков означают только 3 варианта:

1. Мертвый ЖК-дисплей (не в вашем случае).

2. Ослаблено соединение кабеля или поврежден кабель дисплея.

3. Мертвая видеокарта.

Is there a possibility that you need to remove the memory from the laptop? the seller from China suggested this option

He said :"reinstall the memory banks"

Hi!

You can try to do this and check if there is any result or not.

I think there's no point in reinstalling the operating system really .
 Maybe you really have a problem with your SSD, I had a similar problem, but there is no way to find it by checking and reinstalling it, or you need to take your whole computer to a technician, or the SSD itself to bring and check (
 That's how my computer went down((

Hard drive failure is usually pretty rare.  GPU/memory issues are much more likely.  If the card is from China likely there is a modified driver or V-bios to install

      Hi,
      I have an old Dell Alienware M17R3 (2011 built, “new”A12 Bios). Back in 2014 my GTX580M broke, so I decided to put in a GTX680M, which lasted till recently. Now I’m stuck again with 8 beeps and the LCD not turning on. When I remove the card and switch the laptop on, the LCD at least turns on, so I guess it’s a faulty GTX680M. Now...back then people suggested not to go for a GTX580M due to bad thermal values, but as I’m not really using the Laptop for gaming anymore, wouldn’t a GTX480M possibly be a better alternative that lasts even longer? I heard that GTX700M’s could fit in as well, but people reported non fixable sound issues plus thermal issues. Any ideas?

      Hello guys 
       
      I've got a pretty weird problem with my M18x R2. I already searched the web but couldn't find an answer. A few days ago I changed some settings in the bios, if I remember correctly DMVT Pre-Allocated.
      After saving this setting the notebook refuses to even POST. I get no beep errors or anything. If I press the power button the system turns on, the leds turn on and then the system shuts itself off. I already reset the cmos, the IME, tested different configurations and so on. If I remove all the memory sticks I actually get the memory error code. At this point I'm pretty sure that the bios got corrupted for some reason when saving these mentioned settings. Did anyone had a similar problem and got a solution for this? I repaired lot's of notebook but never had an error like this...
      The Bios installed is the a15 unlocked.

      I'm attempting to install a gtx 980m into an m17x r4. I have an unlocked a15 bios booting in pure UEFI. I haven't really messed with any other settings in the bios. I used DDU to uninstall previous Nvidia drivers and all system drivers are up to date.
       
      My issue is the 980m is not being detected at all in the bios or device manager. I believe in the bios, "Discrete Graphics" says "Not Detected". Is there any possible explanation for this other than a dead card? The old gpu still works fine on this device when I switched back,
