I got this laptop in October of 2018. It was said to have only a bad motherboard, that everything else was fine. Good news and bad news, this turned out not to be the case; firstly, they had the wrong RAM type in there (DDR3, not DDR3L as the laptop needed), so I put some L in there, and then I suddenly got a different beep code! This time, the beep code pointed to the LCD, so I carefully separated the glass from the lid, reseated the LCD, and lo and behold, it worked! Woo!
