I have this Dell Inspiron 7520 aka 15R that is giving the 7 beeps issue.
Found it in a dumpster, very little indications someone tried anything on it.
Not possible even to get to BIOS and change it there.

Tried oven reflow, 390/400F for 9 minutes, no change.
Don't have another G2 chip to try in place of this 3632QM.

If the machine would work I'd install macOS Sierra on it and that would ignore the AMD chip anyway.

There is a video in Youtube that shows a board with removed AMD chip and it claims it resolves the issue.
So I'm looking for ideas, as I got a soldering iron and nothing to loose with this machine.

As I searched more and more, eventually I found out the correct way to call this procedure: conversion from discrete to uma.
I found a page with instructions for 5520, I'll try and see if works for 7520.
