Hi! Hope you can help me fix this.... I had to chance the "clock battery" recently, and suddenly every time I turned on my computer it gave 5 beeps (only on startup) Afterwards the beeping continued THE WHOLE time, they´re not as loud as during startup but I can´t use headphones cause the can be heard real clear. I ran a few Dell test from their diagnostics problem, but came up pretty clear (except for the fact that the Hard drive test cuoldn´t be run) Thanks!
Please reseat brand new motherboard (coin-cell) battery by following steps below:
1. Power off system. Remove all peripheral, AC adapter, battery, and then press "Power On" button for about 15 seconds to release Static Flea Power.
2. Open computer case and remove motherboard battery. Press Power On button for about 5 seconds
3. Replace motherboard battery, bay battery, adapter, and then power on system. Hopefully there are no beeps.
