Assuming that you have an Inspiron 530 Mini Tower, check the 530 Troubleshooter in the link below.
Five 'Beeps' could indicate a possible real time clock failure. Possible battery failure or motherboard failure.
Is the power button LED, Steady Blue, Blinking Blue, Steady Amber, Blinking Amber?
Have you made any changes to the 530 recently?
The Inspiron 530 Troubleshooter and Diagnostic Codes are HERE.
