I have a CPU Model: IPM61-TB

My PC didn't start 1 day. I troubleshooted and observe that on pressing CPU power button after a 6 sec beep sound is coming out of CPU continuously in the following manner

('-' represents 1 Second)
-Beep Noise
-Silent
-Beep Noise
-Silent
-Beep Noise
-Silent
-Beep Noise
-Silent
-Beep Noise
-Silent
-Silent

I have tried the Following
-Changing RAM Slot
-Removing RAM
-Un-Plug Every Socket/Plug and Re-Attach It, Each Socket Individually
-Clean CPU by Blowing some Air

All above is done with all External Devices Dis-Connected but after everything beep keeps on coming.

-Note that when devices were initially connected: Nothing was displayed on Monitor and Light didn't glow in Mouse or Keyboard

Please Help!

Thank you
It is dependent on the motherboard, but five beeps usually is the CMOS battery!

But CMOS Battery failure means Date & Time will not be correct. Do you think that will stop CPU from Booting Up?
Should I replace it Anyway?

Hi,

You should replace your CPU battery because it's a clear indication of battery failure.

Well, without the motherboard manufacturer we cannot correctly determine the beep codes!

Google the CPU Model you will find everything you need.

In Question by CPU Model I meant Motherboard Model. Sorry for that.

"Google the CPU Model you will find everything you need. "

Yes, follow your own advice, and do THAT!

Thank you
well your MB is an HP. HP 5 beeps means this:
5 short beeps BIOS recovery successful

Per:
https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c02222922

So it should boot. If the BIOS is RECOVERING, the CMOS needs changed, loads the bios and reboot! Have you actually changed the battery?
