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

      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,

      Okay here is what's going. I have a alienware m18x r1 running an amd 8970m, I wanted to upgrade it to crossfire but I could see a 8970m was more expensive than a r9 m290x
      So I decided to buy a r9 m290x and see if I could make it work in my alienware and also run crossfire.
      Even though many shops refused to sell me one because the didn't think it would work in an alienware m18x r1 only in the r2.
       
      Here is the whole process.

      No post bios showing when booting, so impossible to enter bios menu, but can boot into windows 10 with no problems.
       
      19/08/17 23:20
      Because I haven't deleted the old AMD 8970m the r9 m290x shows as a 8970m with no problems.
       
      19/08/17 23:34
      First performance test was a success. The r9 m290x changed p-state normally. The gpu fan start spinning normally. But because of no thermal paste, the test lasted 20 seconds because the temperature raised fast.
       
      20/08/17 00:00
      Created a backup of the vbios version
      015.032.000.004.044450
       
      20/08/17 00:10
      Flashed a new clevo vbios version 015.032.000.003.044465
      Caused the card to be corrupted and resulted the 8 beep code.
       
      20/08/17 00:35
      Finally managed to flash the back and return the graphics card to its original state.

      20/08/17 00:50
      Flashed a new dell vbios version 015.046.000.014.045579
      No change in behavior
       
      20/08/17 01:07
      After trying multiple vbios with no luck I finally found one.
      Dell vbios Version 015.041.000.000.044966
      Brings back the post bios screen and I can now enter the bios menu through the r9 m290x.
      Note: This vbios reduce the cards performance from 900 mhz to 850 mhz
       
      20/08/17 01:21
      After more testing I found one that is working with no limits.
      Clevo vbios version
      015.036.000.005.044618
      Brings back the post bios screen and I can now enter the bios menu through the r9 m290x.
      This will be the vbios I will keep at the moment.

      I completely uninstalled the previous driver and installed the newest driver. The graphics card is recognized as a 8970m but works normal.

      21/08/17 20:15
      I have inserted my old 8970m in the secondary slot and will start testing crossfire.
       
      21/08/17 21:45
      I have found out that the fan for the secondary fan did not spin. The is a cable that have felt out. I will fix it now.

      21/08/17 22:00
      In my try to test crossfire compatibility, I installed the newest AMD driver 17.7.2 but as soon it installed the driver for the secondary card it caused black screen. Only booting the computer in safe mode brings the screen back.

      21/08/17 23:02
      After many frustrating hours I finally managed to get crossfire working with the r9 m290x as the primary card and my old 8970m as the secondary.
      I have flashed the same vbios on both cards so the r9 m290x shows up I device manager as a 8970m.
       
      I first installed AMD driver version 16.2.1
       
      Then installed AMD driver version 16.6.1 in order to play battlefield

      21/08/17 23:20
      First test run in battlefield 1

      21/08/17 23:40
      Battlefield 1 is flickering bad, this can maybe be solved with a new patch or driver.
      Other games I have tried is working perfect with crossfire on.


      Now what I would like to try is somehow force the r9 m290x driver to be installed and see if it will make it possible to run the latest AMD driver without getting a blackscreen.
       
      I have tried to edit the .inf file like you would do with nvidia but no luck.
      I have also tried to figure out how to edit the device id in the vbios, but I find it too complex.
