Please help me out

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

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.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

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?


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

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.

As the title says my PC outputs a "beep beep" sound out external speakers. It is extremely annoying. I haven't the slightest clue why it does this. Its kindof i higher pitch beep beep. all my specs are on my profile.

A:Computer Outputs a "beep beep" sound 1/3 times wallpaper changes. WHY?

== sound 1/3 times wallpaper changes. WHY? ==

Does that mean "one out of three times the wallpaper changes"? Have you looked in your Control Panel under Sounds and see if anything is set that might cause it?

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.

Okay, So, I get a frantic call from my mother at like 1am saying Windows is spitting out all these error messages and she "HAS" to get her email. So, I go over (yes, at 1:30a), and see all these error messages, so I reboot it and I hear 3 beeps (before the monitor comers on). I let it go and Windows doesn't boot, just sits at a black screen forever... Turns out, she's been impatient and continually hitting the power button if Windows didn't boot fast enough.... I get it to finally get into Windows, and saw "Write Delay Error to H:\" in the corner. I reboot, 3 beeps again, get into Windows, does it again. Then I Powered off. So, I disconnected all the Drives other than 1 dvd and the Windows hard drive. 3 Beeps. I power off again, remove a Ram chip, power on, 3 beeps. Remove a 2nd. 3 Beeps. Remove 3rd...Nothing. No Ram, No Beeps No Post. I (securely) Put a chip back in, turn it on, 3 beeps. Swapped it to another chip, same thing. Removed video card and swapped it with my gf's ... Same deal, 3 Beeps. Removed all PCI devices, powered up, 3 Beeps. Removed battery, re-inserted, 3 Beeps... So, to me, either the Ram chips are dead, or something poached the ram slots themselves... Anyone else have any ideas whatsoever? Right now, the system is running, with the 3-beep errors, it detects all the Ram and does boot into Windows...

A:3 Beep Motherboard (Ameritrends)

A quick bit of googling lead me to this on the American Megatrends website.
Explanation: There is a failure of some sort within the first 64 KB of system memory.
Diagnosis: The first bank of memory probably has a bad memory chip in it somewhere. It is possible that there is a failure related to the motherboard or a system device as well.

Hello all,

I turned my computer on this morning only to receive a beep code in the pattern of:

2 quick short beeps, 6 long ones.

My motherboard is an asus p4p800se.

It should be known that I didn't install anything, I checked all the plugs in the back, removing and re-inserting them along with the pci slots and hdd cables. Of course I did this while the PC was off lol.

Anyways, what's the problem here?

Hi guys

I have an intel DP55WB whitsburg a pair of matched 2gb sticks installed at the moment in slots 1 and 3 and nothing in 0 or 2.

I put a new 4gb stick of IBM ram in and get 3 long beeps and it keeps repeating. Everything goes back to normal when I take out the new stick. It happens in both slots 0 and 2.

Am I doing something wrong? With the new stick do I need to change the placement of my original ram?


A:New ram makes motherboard beep

This motherboard has support for DDR3 1333 /1066 MHz DIMMs. If you insert DDR3 1600 it probably will not work. Intel motherboards are famous for sticking to the specifications and not exceeding them. I own 2 Intel Motherboards.

I don't know if this is allowed but here is the Intel Specifications of the Motherboard.

Make sure you unplug the computer from the wall or the power strip before adjusting RAM DIMMS. All RAM is different. Normally you add it in Pairs to maintain the dual channel functionality. If you don't the RAM will slow down. It is not wise to mix and match different kinds of RAM. This can be related to capacity, latency, SPEED, voltage. Then some RAM may not work with other RAM due to incompatibility with the existing RAM. Some RAM may not work in your motherboard due to incompatibility with the motherboard. Some shorter DIMMS also use a different voltage and you cant mix different voltages. RAM is not just buy it and stick it in.

When I recieved the Asus H97-PLUS, it was not really working for me so the seller was kind to trade my motherboard with a new MSI H97 Gaming 3 motherboard, I installed the motherboard and I just finished reinstalling windows, I have only 1 issue, when I startup my computer I don't hear that beep sound, I don't know if MSI motherboards have that beep sound since it is my first MSI motherboard but it worries me that maybe something is wrong.

Hope someone can help.


A:No beep from motherboard on startup

To make a mobo beep, you need a beeper connected to the speaker pins on the board (usually near the SATA ports) - looks like this

IIRC they usually come in the bag of screws, standoffs etc with a new case. You can prob get one from Amazon, fleaBay etc. I never use them, so have half a dozen in my spares box.

This error code I have looked up and appears to be related to the processor either being seated incorrectly, or going bad. It's a continuous high beep, followed up by a low beep, all back to back, no pause. I just wanted to swing into my favorite site here, and get any second opinions before delivering bad news to my customer. And since I'm on the topic, is there any software to test a cpu? I mean, I know how to scan a hard drive, and ram, but how do you know if the cpu/processor is the culprit and needs replaced? By the way, just looked at motherboard, the bios is pheonix and after looking at bios beep codes under pheonix, there is nothing listed for high and low beeping. Under award bios list, high/low beeping is listed as processor/cpu

Built a new system from scratch. MOBO didn't have an onboard beep speaker but had pins for a small 4 pin 2 wire connector. No case speaker.  Plugged in a small Rhino internal speaker observing the correct polarity.  It beeped on boot but you could only hear it with the case cover off or if you had a "steth-a-scope"  .  It was very low in volume.  I have racked my brain researching how to turn up the volume but hit one dead end after another.  MOBO Gagabyte GA-Z77-D3H (rev. 1.1) with no means of adjustment.  Any suggestions/help will be greatly applreciated.  Thank you.

My Dell XPS 13 (9343) has been non-operational for the better part of 4 months now. This is mostly my fault, as I was scared to bring it in for repairs, fearing a sky-high bill (my warranty expired in early 2016). I will describe the issue and I hope someone may have had my problem before or could offer some advice:
When the laptop is powered on, a yellow light facing the user (usually white to signal start-up) comes on and flashes intermittently. I don't know how to describe the noise that begins to sound other than 'an alarm'. Dell says it is a beep, I say a tornado is about to hit town. Whilst plugging my precious ear drums against this maelstrom, I count 5 beeps (months ago, when the problem had begun there were only 3 beeps *System board failure, says Dell online guide*). The guide I found online shows that this means a CMOS battery failure. 
Does this mean that I need to replace the motherboard? Or simply the CMOS battery? And since my warranty has expired, am I free to safely open the device and replace these myself?
Thanks for the help!

A:Beep Code Indicates Motherboard Issue - What to do?

Try replacing the CMOS battery first -- that will cost just a few dollars.
If that doesn't solve the problem, the mainboard needs to be replaced.

This is my first post so please forgive me if i am in the wrong place.

All of a sudden my computer has started to randomly beep, (windows XP SP3), the same sounding beep as if there is to much information going in, as if you were accidentally holding a key down for to long. (hope that makes sense?).

It first started when scrolling upwards and reaching the top of a PDF in adobe reader, i updated reader and that cured that. Now however it beeps as and when it feels like it. I suspected the mouse at first, (wireless USB Microsoft intellimouse explorer 2), so updated the drivers, changed the batteries etc. but to no avail.

I'm thinking CMOS battery? But if anybody can put me right i would be eternally grateful!

Many thanks in advance,


A:Xp randomly beeping, (motherboard sounding beep!)

if it's beeping in Windows, it typically comes from the hard drive, as motherboard (BIOS) beeps are only emitted during the POST (Power On Self Test) when you power up.

I would back up all your data to another location and test the hard drive with DOS-based diagnostic software which runs from a bootable CD. The links are here: http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287

The DOS-based software is usually an ISO file from which you can make a CD using IMGBurn: http://www.filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

Boot your "beeping" PC from that CD to test the hard drive using the "Long/Extended" test if available.

Do not be tempted to use Windows-based diagnostic software to test the system drive. It's less hassle (no CD to make) but you have to install the Windows-based software on the same drive you want to test, and that's a no-no.

Hi guys, this is probably the most helpless i've felt in a long while and i'm hoping you guys can help me out here.

So this is what happened,
1. I've been working on a very old HP Pavilion 6418 desktop which came with a Slot 1 PII - 400 Mhz processor.
2. Managed to purchase a Slot 1 adapter which supported Coppermine processors, installed it and things were going pretty well till this evening.
3. The computer is factory locked with a 100 Mhz FSB and I was desperate to get that up to 133 (to utilise the full potential of the 1 Ghz / 133 processor). Now the interesting thing to note is that the motherboard has only 1 of the 3-pin FSB (FS 2)terminals out of possible 4. The leads 1 and 2 are shorted out on the said terminal.
4. Having read a lot about overclocking and how easy it had been for some guys, I decided to experiment a little, so soldered the 1st & 2nd points of the 3 non existent FSB terminals section at back of the motherboard, i.e. FS 0, FS 1 and FS 3, and decided to take a look, if it was successful. Contrary to my expectations, the computer started but did not sound the system beep, on connecting it to the monitor, there was no display, system beep or the POST screen.
5. Then I removed the solders from the 3 FSB points and tried to check if the computer would come back to it earlier state. Sadly, this time too there was no system beep and when I connected it to a monitor, there was no video, POST screen, etc.

From my dell inspiron n 5010 8 beep sound is coming, it is a lcd problem as per ur table, but service centre says it is a vga chip problem and quoting for 10k. How to resolve lcd problem?

A:8 beep sound

It COULD be an LCD problem.  Hold the D key through powerup - you should see an alternating series of solid color screens.  If you don't, there's a chance the LCD is bad.
If you do see this - and from the diagnosis you've received, it's likely -- it means the screen is OK and the mainboard may be bad. If the diagnosis did not include replacing the video cable, it too could be bad.
If it did, and it's the mainboard that's bad - given the age and low end nature of the system, you'd be better off replacing rather than repairing it.

Hey everyone. I recently upgraded to Ultimate 64-bit on my HP laptop. I was recently using Dev C++ and when I tried running one of my scripts I noticed that the beeps that I had added wouldn't work. So I checked my device manager and noticed that the system beep wasn't there:

And yes I know that most people try to get RID of it, but I really need it for my programming class.

A:Beep sound is gone!

ok that may be true that your system beep device is not there. So your program does the beep though the pc speaker, the old ms-dos style beep speaker, instead of through the windows directsound api? I'm having a problem understanding why you just don't write your program to use directsound, there's a beep in there that'll work with any machine that has directx installed... well there's more than beeps you can make but all I'm suggesting is that you should write your program the correct way if you're writing it for windows.

The XPS 630i motherboard failed (the Ethernet port and both PCI Express slots were not functioning).
I replaced the motherboard with one purchased on eBay and I used the CPU & memory sticks from the old motherboard, plus the GE Force GT640 video card and the hard drive with the previous installation of Windows7 on it, but then (due to health issues) it sat incompleted for a year. It just needed the waterblock and cooling system installed, which is just recently completed.
When attempting to start the computer, it plays a continuous beep for 25 seconds, pauses for 10 seconds, beeps again for 5 seconds, pauses again for 10 seconds, beeps again for 5 seconds, then stops.
There's no video display.
I realize I may have to reset BIOS / CMOS, yet with no video display, I'm seeking to respond to this beep's meaning, learn what that means first - and then generally how to set up this new installation from here. Thanks, Rob (archer5013)

Everytime i switch on the PC i hear a beep sound from my motherboard. This occurs while the PC is still booting. I dont know about you guys, but perhaps im very particular and sensitive, i find the sound very irritating.

Just how do i get rid of it? Please help. Thanks!

A:How to stop the BEEP sound?

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.

A:beep sound comes from laptop

8 beeps indicates an LCD failure. If you are under warranty contact Dell to get it replaced. If not you will need to purchase an LCD and replace it yourself or take it to a repair shop.

I put my Inspiron 3521 laptop on sleep by just closing the lid. After sometime when I opened  it but nothing showed on screen. I tried my moving my finger on touchpad but nothing happened. Then I forcefully shut it ddown and again switched it on. But nothing happened again. I removed the battery and put it back and tried again but no screen comes up. I left it for sometime and again tried, this time the power light and cpu light goes on and after two second cpu light goes off and only power light remains. Now laptop starts making sounds like "tak tak tak tak tak". The sound starts at high volume and stops after getting low and repeat itself. I even tried removing the battery and doing this on power plug only but same thing happens again. I know that that it is not a beep sound. And because even dell logo doesn't shows up, so I can't even get it boot up or any thing else ... What shoud I do now?

Hi i recently have an irritating beep sound that takes priority over all the other Windows sounds (these include the error sounds, the warning and the info sounds). Whenever I do an action that will result in these popups, there will be a beep. For instance, when i end a task with Task Manager, a beep sound will accompany the warning. This beep only happened recently.
Can you assist me in solving this problem?
I am running Windows XP SP3 and my computer is about 3 years old.
Currently, I have locked my target at the registry.

A:Irritating beep sound that does not go away

Hi -Open Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices > Sounds - Click each item that has a Speaker next to it - Below that is a Drop down menu - Click on the Down arrow -Select the sound you would like , or move the bar upwards and click on None Etc -There is a / Windows Default / Chime / Ding Etc - Select the sound you want or select None if that is what you prefer -I hope this solves your problem, because if it has not then further steps can be taken - The Critical stop or Critical battery noise may be the cause -Thank You -
