Q: Beep, Beep wont stop

Hi, I have a acer travelmate 4070 laptop when you turn it on it starts beeping loud,
I started clicking enter so it can boot quick lol as soon laptop booted, opened window
went to normal screen operation it stopped beeping.
I gave it a shut down, turned it on again and that loud beeping started again.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi Ganny,
What are the exact # of beeps in a cycle? 
Kindly review this chart and see page# 47 - it will help isolate the source of the issue. 
Based on the exact # of beeps, that part would need to be replaced.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private message with the service tag and your Name for case records.

Hi,
My laptop here is a Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series. 
The laptop itself works perfectly fine, I am able to get into windows (which I installed myself, it originally came with Ubuntu). 
Occasionally though, it will do a BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE (repeats).
This happens on boot and sometimes when I am using it. Sometimes it turns off suddenly when I am shifting the computer around. It's extremely loud.

What is causing this? The sound seems to be coming from around the area the Memory banks are under the laptop, but nothing seems to suggest that anything is wrong.
I took a suggestion and used FN+Power to do Hardware Diagnostics which said nothing is wrong.

What else can I try?

Thanks!

A:Dell Inspiron 15 - 3000 series - Beep Beep Beep Pause Beep Beep Beep

Hi,
I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check if the beep pattern repeats.

Switch off the computer.
Disconnect the AC adapter from the system.
Remove the battery from the computer.
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Then connect back all the peripherals and check if the beep pattern repeats and reply us with the beep count.

If you still receive 3 Beeps on the system then it indicates System board failure.. You will have to replace it on the laptop.
Please let me know the findings.

My X230 gets very little use since I bought it in 2012... sometimes no use at all for weeks at a time. Yet the system board failed, as did a replacement, and now the third board seems to have failed. On startup I get 1 beep, 3 beep, 3 beep, 1 beep and a blank screen. I tried the existing RAM stick in both slots: no startI bought and tried a NEW stick of RAM from Crucial in both slots: no startI tried both sticks in the slots at the same time: no start Other than another bad system board, what could it be? Where can I get a system board that might last? By the way, at the same time I bought the X230 I also bought a T530 that gets gallons of heavy use almost every day and never had a problem that I didn't cause myself.

I have two printers connected to a Dell E520 through Vista. They are a Brother 5440CN and a HP 6110xi. The .Brother works ok but I can't say the same for the HP. Clicking any button on the HP gives the same response. Beep, beep, beep. I have recently moved the system to a new location just a couple of feet from where it was. Before the move Brother would scan and copy and the HP would do the same, but now as noted I can't get any response out of it but beep, beep, beep

Is the beep pattern just one short one long? Check your manual for the POST beep codes to determine what it is telling you. All POST beep codes are different so there's no way to tell unless we know exact model of your PC. The manual usually has the beep code in it, though.

A few times now my E5440 will give a low beep... then a few seconds go by, and another beep.  It just happened a minute ago - only two beeps this time.  But I think it happened a few days ago and beeped several times with the same pause of a few/several seconds in between the beeps.  It's so quiet that before I've thought I was imagining it.  But this time I was sitting in front of it typing.
There are no pop-up notifications on the screen anything is wrong, such as the 'disconnection' sound when you remove a portable HDD, or your Wi-Fi disconnects.  Nothing to indicate what the beeps mean.  The laptop is working perfectly.  Battery is fully charged.  I can hear the fan turning and changing speed but it's 2:30am here with no outside noise and I can barely hear the fan.  (I assume it would be spinning up like crazy if something were overheating.)
I'm at a loss what it means.  Does anyone know?
I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit if that matters.

Hi,

I am trying to help with a Dell Inspiron 5100.
The computer was running very slow and I've made a bit of progress resolving that. I think it needs some more RAM and I'm not sure if that could be at all related to the following.
The problem now is that after running for few hours, then shutting down, then trying to turn back on:
1. light comes on indicating computer is on
2. the computer makes 2 beeps
3. wait...black screen
4. wait...black screen
5. and so on

This does not happen everytime trying to start the computer so I'm really at a loss. I've read about overheating in this model which would seem to make sense but sometimes this will happen after the computer has been off for a day or so.

At a complete loss now.

Any assistance much appreciated!

Hi, Today I replaced my old graphics card with a new GeForce 9500GT and also added a new Kingston 2GB Ram Card. I installed both of them then restarted the computer, since then it has only powered on and playing 1 short beep then 1 long beep. I've tryed everything I can think of ranging from taking out everything new and putting it back to before I added the new items to completely taking out all 3 RAM sticks and reseating them. I'm not sure how a brand new unopened 2GB ram stick that fit perfectly and a brand new right out of the box graphics card can cause a problem like this. I've been through the ins and outs of the internet trying to find a solution but nothing has worked. Hoping someone can think of a unique way to fix this or how it could have possibly happened in the first place. I dont buy anything used everything placed inside my computer was/is brand new when it was purchased. Any help/comments on solutions would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Is it possible you are hearing 1 long - one short?
That might indicate a BIOS CHECKSUM error, depending on the brand of BIOS.

You can try a ClearCMOS procedure (CLRTC is the same thing):
Note all your current BIOS settings
Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
Remove the 3v motherboard battery.
Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
Immediately go back into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time.

I just had a "search engine redirect issue" fixed by "Gringo." One thing that is different now is at windows start-up, this laptop makes a BEEP TIC (Higher in frequency than the BEEP) vs the BEEP BEEP sounds I've had for ever. The computer start-up sequence is very slow as it takes minutes before the computer is ready to be used.

During the virus removal, a few times the reboot start-up sounds were BEEP - TIC - BEEP (again the TIC was higher a higher tone and faster than the BEEPs). What do the different sounds mean?

I'm not sure you can disable the bios beep. It's there for a reason; the amount of beeps (depending on bios) determines which problem is present. If only one beep on bootup then all's well.

To stop this simply add this line into the .vmx configuration file

Hi. Story time (might help locate the problem). A little over a week ago i upgraded to windows 10 from 7. All was good. No complains. Two days ago I found an old HDD I havent used for 4 years, just wanted to see what I had stored on it. Now the problem bigins. For some reason I had to reboot the PC (dont remember why), when it booted up (with hdd connected) i got a error message wich said "inaccassible_boot_device". It wouldnt go past this message so I had to reinstall windows 7 (I disconnected the external HDD ofc). Wich went well. Now i had one millions updates to download and install, this took some hours of course. All is still good. Surfed the web, had fun. Then The night came and I turned off my computer. The next day came and it never booted again..

It starts up, fans working, hearing sound from HDD, but no beep and boot.

The PC is a Alienware x51 (2012) (specs: http://www.cnet.com/products/alienware-x51-desktop/)
All original parts.

I have ofcourse tried a little troubleshooting myself before I turned to the forums.
What I have done:
Removed the RAMs: Result: Continious beeping wich means MoBo OK?
Removed GPU, HDD and everything except keyboard, connected hdmi to the onboard mobo. No result.
Resetted CMOS. No result.
Tried the trick where you feel if the CPU is heating up. It does. So that is working.

Ive got another laptop to have a look at as he spilt beer over it, i told him that there might not much can be done, as he has tried to turn it on already.

Ive taken it all apart and made sure it was all dried out, didn't actually notice any dampness although there was a distinct smell of stale beer.

After doing this ive tried to turn it on, power button doesn't work, but when you open the laptop lid by about 1 inch they system begins to power up, screen come on briefly as in 1sec maybe less, the BIOS emits a beep then the laptop shuts down.

Any ideas on how i can make it work again or what to do?

Cleaning would be easy if access was easy. I often clean electronic components with lemon juice and finish off with distilled water, both applied with a medium stiff bristle artist's brush. Beer and sweet sodas dry as a gummy residue, lemon juice cuts that pretty well. Water removes the juice. Allow plenty of time for drying or use a vacuum chamber to expedite.

I have never dismantled a keypad on a laptop for cleaning but that may well be your challenge.

Hi I just installed some new ram on my computer going from 1gb (2x512mb) to 2gb (an extra 2x512mb). The memory is all Geil 512mb PC2-5300. I have tried every combination I can think of yet whenever I have the new memory installed the computer wont start and there will just be a continuous beep from my motherboard (ASUS P5nd2 -SLI). I have sent the new memory back however it was sent back to me telling me it was fine!

Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really appreciate it, thank you!

A:Installed new ram, wont start, continuous beep

Post motherboard specs. You may need to adjust the memory timings to get it to work.

Check the motherboard manufacturer's combatibility list. Some RAM will not work, or will have problems with certain motherboards.

You could have a bad RAM slot on the motherboard.

You will need to test each stick one at a time in the same slot, to make certain they will all work with the board.

Are you absolutely certain all 4 sticks are exactly the same ?

Since the old pair works, trade them out for the new pair. If the are good, and exactly the same as the old pair, they should work in the old memory slots. If they do, move them to the (previously unused) memory channel and see if the new memory will work in the new channel. if they do, then the issue is not the new memory, but using more than 2 sticks at the same time.

Then focus on getting 3 sticks to play nice.

At some point things will stop working, and indicate the direction of the problem.

Hi guys!

First of all, I'm new here. I signed up to this forum because of an issue with my little brothers's PC. I've found some threads about the issue but I wasn't able to solve it with the given information.

So, my brother is just playing a game and all of a sudden his PC gives a long beep, and starts rebooting. Unfortunatly after this incident the pc won't start up at all, it's just giving this never ending beep.

knowing that he has an Asus p5n-mx MoBo and an Award BIOS I starten looking for answeres.
The error should indicate that there is an issue with the installed RAM. So I removed it and replaced it with a spare strip. But that didn't solve the problem. So I took out the Videocard and tried to use the onboard chipset to boot up. Still got the continuous beep. I removed all the RAM and tried to boot up. The result of that the 1 long beep and 2 short beeps error code as repeating loop. Now I am not sure if that is the indication for a not properly installed VGA card but it said so in the beep-code list.

Pc specs:

I have the motherboard out of the case with just the cpu/ram/power supply hooked up to it, the mobo is lying on the static sheet so there is no possibility of it grounding out. I dont know what the hell is wrong. The mobo is a chaintech 7KJD, does anyone know if there is a special jumper that is protecting the CMOS that I am not seeing?
 

A:NO BIOS beep, computer wont boot

Firsly, "static sheets" can be very conductive. Thats how they equalise/dissipate static.

They are NOT an insulator in many cases!

For some silly reason I removed the 2 128mg PC2100DR ram sticks from my old computer that was working just fine. When I reinstalled them and I try to boot up I get a long beep, a pause, and another long beep. This senario continues and I shut the computer down as soon as possible. I'm sure I have the ram seated properly. Any ideas? Thank you in advance
 

A:One long beep, pause, another long beep when I turn on computer

If you are sure that you have them seated correctly try one stick at a time.

I Have tried counting the Beep but it's a non stop beeping. When powered on the screen remain black  (no display) with the continuous beep. 
I cannot even see the BIOS. I have tried draining the static current by holding down the power button but failed. I have seen a post similar to this one but with no solution.
Please help!

Last night I updated Norton Anti virus then restarted the computer as prompted.
Since then it is stuck in a loop of black and white screen showing my CPU speed and giving options of F2 for settings or F8 for Boot, neither of these work and it just goes back round the loop.
I bought the PC second hand and do not have Win XP discs!!!!

Please help I am lost without my computer.
Thanks

A:Pc wont boot, no beep, black and white screen

Does it have a restore partition? Sounds to me like time to buy an XP cd as repair or check disk any of the options would require one.

ok, heres my problem, at first games would crash often, then i couldnt even install games, saying a cabnit file is corrupt, or there is a problem with my networking. I took my comp into a shop, they said i needed a new operating system, so i bought windows vista premium 64bit installed it. First I installed wow which worked, then I had to download the patches, after downloading they wouldnt install, saying the download was corrupt, or there were too many errors in wow to reinstall it. I did a chkdsk in the command propmt, says theres nothing wrong with my hard drive, I have dual channel memory, so I bought 2 new sticks of 1g ram to replace them thinking that could be the problem. When i put the new ram in started the comp. it wouldnt boot, just a black screen and gave me the boot code of 1 long beep followed by 2 short over and over. I think that means a bad video card, i took it out, put it back in, same thing, so i used one from a different computer, same thing. does any one know what could be wrong with my comp? its like 3 months old.
 

A:1 long beep 2 short, comp. wont start

Not all Ram cards are compatible.

If you remove the new ram cards does it work?
Or if you just use the new Ram cards, and take out the old ones, does it work ?

I'd say, more likely Ram issue

You may also want to post all your Hardware system specs, including the new ram specs

I have four computers all of different era's & processors. My best machine now after a bit of video card changing and changing back is now on the fritz. It has no bios beep and no screen output / signal. No similar hardware has passed these machines, just my hands so if I am doing something wrong tell me. I do check for static discharge each and every time. Is my motherboards all fired?

Hey all i need some help... Ill take it from the top

I have an Asus a8n-e mobo on which the chip fan died rescently, i ran the computer for awhile without the fan and it looked like it worked fine,temps seemd fine in Asus Probe and in bios. I tried to switch the fan for a working one from an older mobo but it didnt fit and now the computer wont boot any more. It POSTs and then freezes just when the chip fan warning comes on, or if i enter bios it freezes a few secs after i get in. When i reboot i get the same thing OR i get some weird beep codes, 2 short 2 long 2 short and after awhile another, 2 short 3 long, and i cant find an answer for theese codes. I have tried to run it from out of the case with only psu, mobo, cpu, ram and switching slots on the ram sticks but no change.
So is the mobo the issue? Is there a way to test just the mobo? I cant see any problems on the mobo, chip doesnt look burnt (dunno really how it would look tho) but there is some thermal paste on it... any suggestions on this?

Specs:
Asus A8N-E (Phoenix Award Bios)
AMD Atlhon64 Venice 3200+
Corsair 2x1024mb Dual DDR 3200 400mhz CL2
XFX Geforce 7900GT
Antec sonata 2 450w

thx in advance!
 

A:computer wont boot, weird beep codes

By 'chip fan' do you mean the one on the North Bridge or the one on the CPU?
If the fan on your heatsink on your CPU died, your CPU would probably be overheating and switching itself of. Either that or it died.
If you mean the one on the NB, it could also be overheating. If you don't have a fan that fits, you could either buy a new one that does or make a fanduct out of pieces of plastic or cardboard.
