inspiron N5110 beeps 5 times on start up

This question is answered

My Dell Inspiron N5110 beeps 5 times for 5 times in a row when I boot up my computer. I ran a system scan everything passed except it said to launch window memory test.

Did that and it also said it passed. Can anyone explain these beeps? I did a code search and have not been able to fing anything with 5 beeps, 5 times in a row.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

  • 5 beeps usually mean cmos battery failure. Replace the coin cell battery

  • Hello!

    Can you please tell me how did you solve the problem for I am having the same problem with my laptop. It keeps on beeping with 5 beeps in a row. The beep is louder on the boot screen and then it beeps with sound.

    Any idea how can I work this out?


  • I had the cmos coin cell battery replaced and it solved the problem.

  • i am having the same problem but sometimes it beep 3 times and sometimes 7 times...

    help me please i am damn worried

  • sarahinam

    3 times is usually a system board failure. 7 times is usually a processor failure. You can try replacing the processor first. If that does not solve your problem then you may need a new motherboard. You may just try re seating your processor and see what results you get.
