    7 beeps is the CPU or components on the motherboard relating to the CPU. If you’ve just had your board replaced then it’s probably the CPU.

    I’ve never seen a 7 beeps issue that turned out to be the CPU, always has been motherboard in my experience

    My 17X R4 has 7 beeps and I don’t have a spare cpu to test. It like @Raidriar mentioned, it might be a mobo problem

    I have had a 17 with a 7 beep issue. It was a faulty 4900. There is hope!

    The 4900MQ or 4910MQ are great CPU's and can be overclocked a little. If you want a fully unlocked CPU grab a 4930MX.

    I'm not saying that it isn't another faulty motherboard though so you may just want to get a cheaper 4700 to test
