Dell Inspiron N5110 :: Doesn't Turn On And Makes 3 Beeps
Apr 28, 2013
my laptop was working fine until an hour ago but suddenly the screen went white and so i turned it off. after waiting for sometime, i turned it on again but the screen is blank and the laptop makes 3distinctive beeps and repeats them until i turn it off again.
My Dell N5110 is about 14 months old - Windows 7, 650GB HD, 8GB RAM (originally 6GB before I upgraded the memory chip). Up until about 2/2/13, I was able to turn it on, put it in hibernation, etc., but suddenly, I could not turn it on (I had it plugged in overnight, perhaps it was in Sleep mode). I saw no lights, no beeps, no black screen as described by others - just empty screen, no power, nothing.
I waited over a week before I decided to bring it in to get service (my schedule didn't permit me to do so earlier). In the meantime, I kept trying everyday to get it work - I removed the battery, I reseated the memory chips, I clicked the power button on for multiple times, held it down for 30+ seconds, clicked every key on the keyboard, used two different power adapters (one had a blue light to indicate that it was powered), tried to used the AC adapter without a battery, all to no avail.
Eight days after the initial discovery (and a few days before I had planned to bring it in), I tried once more - removed the battery, reseated the memory chips, et. al. and then clicked the power switch (did not use a power supply). Unbelievably, IT TURNED ON! I was so shocked that I immediately took all of my personal information right off and did not turn it off again until I had cleaned the hard drive off. I reluctantly shut down the PC and was able to restart it again! And it was working fine until just this past Friday (3/29/13) where it is now dead again. I think that it went into sleep mode as I just closed the monitor and I saw the lights go off.
I have a feeling that my machine went into sleep mode and it still "thinks" it is sleeping and it can't be turned back on. Perhaps what I saw earlier was the complete draining of the power resources which rendered the machine completely cold so it was able to restart? Was there a Microsoft service release that could have caused this to happen? I have not changed my power settings to prevent the machine from sleeping but if I can get it restarted again, I will definitely change the setting.
I have a dell inspiron n7110. I keep trying to turn on the computer and am getting nothing but black screen with 7 beeps. I tried starting it while holding the FN key all that happened is the beepos went away still black screen.
I mentioned in the subject my laptop won't start. I checked forums here and tried the offered solutions but nothing. My AC works fine, green light turns on when I plug it, and stays the same when I plug it to laptop. Laptop doesn't make any sounds...my led for battery on laptop doesn't work when I plug it on AC.
My Inspiron 1525 makes long beeps when booting , and it even restarts before booting to windows recently I installed ubuntu linux .the keyboard is going on typing " ^.I am not able to discover what key it is .I hit some random keys, and the thing works...Most of the time hitting the TAB key few times before the boot sequence seems to work.
My DELL n5110 (core i7) randomly makes a strange Single Beep, then a clicking sound which i think comes from it's bottom left corner, this happens while i'am normally operating it, with no error what so ever, and it continues work, nothing appears on the screen, no system notifications, nothing at all, just Single Beep, then a Clicking sound that comes from it's bottom left corner and lasts less than a second, that's it, it's not bothering me, but what is it !!!?
I am very upset that my expensive Dell laptop has stopped working when it's less than 2 years old. When I turn it on it beeps 8 times and does this over and over Nothing comes up on screen just black? A friend said I need a new board thing as video card is on that.
I have a Inspiron N5110 which beeps 8 times on start up and nothing comes up on the display, external monitor works fine. I replaced the lcd and the same thing. Is there sometining else I should be looking at??
I insert a memory stick to laptops backside usb drive then the other usb drive that im using for mouse becomes off. This failure occurs after that 5 beeps 3 times in a row at startup... What can i do ....
My dell Inspiron N5110 Beeps 5 times, stop, 5 beeps,stop then the windows open normally and every thing is fine. However i changed the coin cell battery twice and nothing change still beeps. So i updated the BIOS but unfortunately didn't work. More over i did a system restore to a windows update a week ago also still beeps at startup.
Yesterday the laptops wifi adapter stopped working.. Then after sometime the laptop started to give 5 beeps on startup.. The beeps continued even after Windows was running.. And now the computer doesn't turn on.. The fan and stuff turns on but nothing is displayed on the screen.. Also there are no beeps anymore!
I get 7 beeps after I click the power button. my options but I understand this might mean a processor issue? I am fairly handy so is this something I could do myself if I purchase parts? My laptop is NOT under warranty.
For some reason my Dell INSPIRON N5110 is not booting up correctly. When I start it up the screen remains black for some time and starts to beep 4 times. I did do my research and knw that it is a read / write RAM error according to the beep code table for dell laptops. I did attempt to change the RAM sticks but it didnt work.
I've just dropped my laptop (dell inspirion n5110) while it was on (about a feet) and now it's beeping. I also noticed that the bottom left of the screen disattached, but I was able to put it back in. I understand that 8 beeps mean LCD failure. I've tried to do the test run by pressing "D" but nothing shows up, only a white screen.
I have a dell inspiron n5110 and it randomly gives me 5 beeps and they repeat and small intervals. Now after some research I found out that the five beeps indicate problem with the CMOS battery, Am I right? And if so then why don't the beeps stick, why do they only happen at random? Why do they go away by restarting the system?I'm just wondering if this really is the battery or something else? And If I should replace it.
My screen simply blackout in the middle of internet surfing last night 8.00 pm....bought this laptop from JB Hifi and still with warranty...I do not know why...I can
still put it on and continuously emits three beeps at a time and nothing on the screen...need to contact support on Monday and 2 days I am without a computer and just like am isolated...any closest reason for this?
I have a very confusing issue with my Dell Inspiron N5110 Core i5 laptop. Sometimes when I try to switch it on, it doesn't do anything at all. I tried to talk the battery and the AC adapter out, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds, put the battery and the AC adapter back in but nothing at all happens. No lights are showing up at all on it even when i'm having the AC adapter however i am sure that the adapter is fine.
What confuses me that when i leave it for a day or two and try again, it just works fine. It is about 7 months old and it came up with Windows 7 home edition on it.
My Inspiron 17 3721 won't turn on and beeps and pauses for a second and beeps again. It is just a black screen and to make it stop beeping I have to hold my power button down for 5 seconds. It is a windows 8.
After returning from a trip, I tried to turn on my desktop and it only gives two short beeps. The light below the power cord is green. (At first it gave 4 short beeps, then after I took out the RAM and reinstalled, now I only get 2 short beeps.) I have tried installing only 1 of the 3 RAM cards in each slot, but each time I get the 2 short beeps.
I bought a dell inspiron n5110 laptop just a couple of days back. the problem is I am not able to scroll on the touchpad. it does not even have a mark on it to tell you the area you can use for scrolling. I have tried uninstalling and installing the drivers but its not working.
When I close the lid to my laptop it doesn't sleep. I did check the power settings and it is set to when the lid closes the computer goes to sleep. I've tried changing it to shutdown when the lid closes, but it doesn't even shutdown. I can still see the power light on when the lid is closed and I can still here my computer running. Everything was working fine, then it stopped working a couple of days ago.
I recently changed the screens on my laptop without difficulty. The next day i went to classes and brought my laptop since it was now fixed. When i went to turn it on it was very dark and i couldn't adjust the brightness. I couldn't get pass the log on screen so i held down the power button but it would not turn off so i took out the battery. I put the battery back in and left the laptop alone till i got home. I thought that the problem with the screen was a wire came loose or something of that nature so i took apart the screen and made sure everything was plugged in. I put it back together and put the battery back in and went to turn it on to see if the screen problem was resolved and it wouldn't boot or anything. I don't get any beeps, fans, or lights that turn on.
I've been the ONLY owner of this laptop! So I go to change the info to me but it's still not showing up. Yesterday I went to turn on my laptop to do my homework and it would only power on and beep at me 7 times. My warranty has run out and I can't afford a brand new laptop, but I need something since I'm taking online classes.
I have an dell n5110 laptop. My charger broke, bought a new one. But now my computer wont fire up. No lights, no sound, 100% dead. I tried to take the battery out and unplug the power, held power button for about 30 seconds, recconnected battery and power cord with no results. its still 100% dead cant get it to start up.
