Hi, I own a Dell Inspiron N5110 i5 processor laptop with 4 GB RAM and 500 GB hard disk. Its getting 14 months since I bought it.From the last few days, I could see that the machine makes beep sound on start up till the windows starts. The sound gets disappeared after OS starts. Especially if I turn on the lap from hibernation mode, some time rebooting also make the beep sound. However, I observed a similar low tone inside the system even when the machine is running. I have been using a cooler also to reduce the heat, all keys are working fine no thing is jammed, I have performed the dell H/W diagnostics test all the results were passed. Drivers are all updated, the processor fan i also running correctly. I am wondering what can be the reason.
Please do share your thoughts and suggestions about this issue.
I have tried something from another forum that I found, but do not have the link so I cannot copy and paste or give credit to the poster. This is what I did:
1) Unplug all power from the laptop
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for approximately 15 seconds.
4) Reattach the battery and/or plug in the power supply.
5) Power on the laptop.
This solved my problem.
Hi I have faced exactly same problem since last week. Please confirm me your problem is solved by last post.of helmst1026 is
My N5110 just went through a Windows 8 update and I have been hearing 5 low tone beeps through my headphones since the update.
Everything else is working fine. Would also like to know what's up...
@HELMST1026 :- I am still waiting for the reply. Nope I dont get any kind of beep sounds via headphones/lap speakers but from inside the lappy. While in some forums some are pointing to harddisk failure in this case I dont think so the reason I am not receiving any unwanted sounds from the or vibration from the hard disk side.
Still waiting for an answer !!!! :(
I having the same problem when I update to windows 8

I am currently facing the same problem with my Dell Inspiron N5050 (i3 Processor, 4 GB RAM). From the last few days, I could see that the machine makes beep sound on start up till the windows starts. The sound gets disappeared after OS starts.
And the beeps pattern is like first 2 beeps with small gap and then almost 50 beeps continuously without any gap till the windows starts.
I have checked all keys are working fine and also I have performed the dell H/W diagnostics test, all the results were passed.
And as suggested in the last comment, i have unplugged all power from Laptop & held the power button for 15 seconds. But no luck.
Can anyone from Dell Technicians suggest how to resolve the issue or tell if i need to replace any hardware part.
Thanks for your help in Advance !
I'm experiencing the same issue that you have: continous beeps on start up till Windows starts...
Did you get any reply from DELL technicians??
Check your date & time in setup if it is changed to past i.e. 01.01.2009 etc. Its mean your cmos cell/battery is expired, Change the cmos cell/battery to fix the problem.
