Turning the ignition key does nothing; no peep, nothing turning over, just dead. Then after a while, the car starts up again, but the clock, stereo, and trip odometer are reset. That has happened about five times over the last six months.
If everything else is also dead when this occurs - no dash lights, no stereo, no HVAC, etc. - then focus on battery connection or cable problems as others here have suggested.

If everything else is live but you just can't get it to crank, then I would suspect starting solenoid or intermittent starter.

I think it's the former, since you mentioned the clock, stereo, and trip odometer resets happening. Which situation is it?
