Hi,

I have a problem with my dell inspiron n5110 , when i start it it make 5 loud beeps, keep repeating it, but once logged in windows, the sound become quiet, but it remains.

I used the test utility that exist in the menu of the boot (when pressing F12) and all tests are  passed.

I hope someone can help me about this.

Best Regards

  • Hi,

    Welcome to the Community. 5 beeps on an Inspiron N5110 means a CMOS Battery Failure. If you have an Active Warranty, send me a Private Message, click on my user name, add me as a friend, and send me your Name, Service Tag, Phone Number and Address.

    Thank you.

  • Hi, Thank you for your reply.

    I'm wondering how it can be a CMOS battery failure, and i did the diagnostic and it passed all the tests,  the time and date are correct not changing, it can be other problem?.

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    As per our Training Manual 5 beeps means a CMOS battery failure. Check the below link for beep codes on a Dell Laptop.

    Thank you.

  • Thank you for your reply, i want to know what type of CMOS battery that the Dell inspiron n5110 is using, is a CMOS battery of 3V can do the work?

    Best Regards

  • Hi,

    I do not have that information, however do a Google search on this Dell Part Number RU485 which is for the CMOS battery.

  • You can find one here.
