inspiron N5110 beeps 5 times on start up

Jump to solution

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

2 - No Memory (RAM) detected Memory or Memory slot failure

3 - chipset Error (North and South bridge error, DMA/IMR/Timer error) Time-Of-Day Clock test failure

System board failure

4 - Memory read / write failure Memory failure

5 - Real Time Clock (RTC) power fail CMOS battery failure   (the CMOS battery on the motherboard needs to be replaced)

6 - Video BIOS test failure Video subsystem failure

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

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.
