Any chance you got some smutz it the key board?  Quite awhile back I had a very similar issue, turned out to be the key board.  I took it apart cleaned it that fixed my problem.

You can do a search for your Dell Computer's beep code. Example is below.

 

Dell Inspiron 15 (3521) Beep Codes

 

Three Beeps

3
  • chipset Error (North and South bridge error, DMA/IMR/Timer error)
  • Time-Of-Day Clock test failure
  • Gate A20 failure
  • Super I/O chip failure
  • Keyboard controller test failure
System board failure

 

 

Most Common Fix: 3 Beeps: Replace the motherboard / system board.

If this is a Inspiron 5558...I got that from the mother board ID you posted.

Scroll down to paragraphs 12 and 13 for beep info and how to diagnose using Dell's tools.
