If you replaced the CMOS battery on the motherboard,

by wizard57m-cnet Moderator In reply to Inspiron n5110`

and you're sure it is a good battery, then my guess would be something getting ready to go kaput on the motherboard itself, possibly somewhere in the circuitry for the battery. Check the motherboard for signs of cracks, stress, heat or short circuits.

Memory

by robo_dev In reply to inspiron n5110

Four 'Beeps' indicate a memory issue, try opening the case, remove and reinstall all the modules and see if this makes a difference.

Either bad memory module, or bad motherboard, or maybe just need to reseat the memory chip
