    Hello

    Please could someone help me-
    when I turn on my Dell Inspiron laptop it beeps loudly 5 times followed by a pause then 5 again etc with this problem persisting until I log in.

    Please could someone advise on the problem.

    Thanks

    Kate :)

    Welcome to PCHF

    The diagnostic codes are here: Documentation - no mention of 5 beeps though...

    Sorry for the delay Kate. Can you definitely confirm the beep code sequence please? Following the beeps, the laptop works perfectly normally?

    Could it be something to do with the memory failing at some point?
