Preferred Solution: 5 beep pause 2 beep

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.)

A: 5 beep pause 2 beep

The beep sequence refers to the CMOS battery - or the clock chip. Replace the reserve (CMOS) battery -- it's usually a CR-2032 button cell. If you need details, post the model number (i.e., Inspiron N5110, XPS 9333, etc.).

Hi
I am getting beep sounds when i turn on my dell inspiron n5010.
Nothing is showing up other than beep sounds.
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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

My computer has been making this noise for quite some time now. but it would only happen once every few days so it didn't really concern me until now because its happening non stop. The noise is definitely coming from system sounds. I'm not sure if this is related but under device manager there is an unknown device which i cannot account for as i put the computer together and I'm staring in to the case rite now. there is also a yellow icon by teredo tunneling pseudo-interface (i have no idea what that is)lately my computer just seems to be working really hard when idling. the cpu is constantly spiking up to 100% usage and my hard drives seem to constantly be spinning. specscpu: intel core 2 duomobo: abit ab9ram: 1gb ddr2gfx: geforce 9800 gtx+hd: 2 seagate internal drives (1 with os) the other blank for storage.

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 just got a strange reaction from my pc. It was working fine last night, I went to start, turn off computer, shut down and went to bed. I got up this morning and I saw a notice on the screen (PC did not shut down during the night) It said there was a change to the global template for microsoft word and did I want to save changes so I said no and the pc shut down. Later on I tried to call up my key logger and heard a beeping noise from within my pc. I paid it no attention and went on the rest of the day working. I was using Quicken later on and noticed that when I tried to view certain graphs they seemed to be "fluttering" (The page seemed to go up and down rapidly on its own) I closed it and ran Avast antivirus scan. I tried to activate it and got an error message that said it ran into some kind of runtime error (I think) I finly got it started, ran a scan and came up empty of viruses. Then Avast kept shutting itself off. I emptied my waste basket, went to internet options, deleted all files and history (Including online content) then cleared all in Firefox. Next I went to start, run msconfig, start up disable all, restart, back to start, run, msconfig, enable all, reboot and everything seems to be fine now.

I just got new asus AM2 mobo and I'm getting beeps on start. 1 long beep and two short. Somewhere I found it is related to video card. I'm not sure if that's true, but I know videocard is functional and inserted correctly.
The mobo has it's own video, so I tried using only that, same thing. It just doesn't seem to make sense.
 

A:Beeeep, beep beep

One long two short looks like a video issue, as you said. You say it is also happening when you remove the graphics card and try to boot up with the onboard graphics?

Here's what I'd do:

Remove the motherboard from the case and set it on a box beside your case. Next, reset cmos (check your manual to find the cmos jumper pins).

Remove everything from the motherboard except:

cpu with heatsink/fan
one stick of ram
power supply connections to the motherboard (should be two)
connect the case's speaker to the motherboard

Then use a screwdriver to quickly touch (short) the two pins that usually connect to your case's power on switch.

See what kind of beeps you get.

If you still get the beeps, my guess is your need to RMA the board, but please post your system's full specs (including your power supply specs)

Good luck!

A:No beep

What would concern me is the no beep. The audible BIOS beep codes should tell you what's going on. If there's no beep and no power failure, my guess would be that it has something to do with your video card not relaying info to the monitor. Make sure the card is seated properly in the AGP slot, if it's an AGP card. If it's a PCI or PCI-E card, try changing the PCI(E) slot it's in. Make sure all your monitor cable connections are clean.

It could also be a power supply issue. Sometimes drastically changing the mobo increases the demand on a power supply. What kind of power supply are you using, and what kind of mobo were you using it with before you upgraded?

You might be hearing "Keyboard Clicks" I'd suggest that you explore your keyboard settings and disable anything that resembles keyboard clicks or key sounds. Here's how you do it on a Dell:






Quote:
Press [FN] + [F1] to enter the Setup program.
Press [ALT] + [P] (both at the same time) to go to the second page.
Highlight Keyboard Click: and press the [Right arrow] key (->) to set

Now the keyboard will not emit a beep tone when you type.

Need help. At my work I guy donated a number of computers. One turns on, there is power to the mother board and all drives. It has RAM, hard drives fine (which wouldn't matter). Unsure about the graphics card. its an asus motherboard. the computer when turns on just beeps (lights are on) in regular intervals. Bios problem? Video card? Any advice?

Ok. I am helping my friend build his computer. We got everything hooked up. His powersupply hasn't came in yet, so we took the one out of his old Dell, and shoved it in there. Heh

He has:
Athlon 64 3000+
3 Extra Fans
CDRW
80GB HD
Radeon 9600

Our problem is :
All of the fans come on, and I believe the harddrive is running. The CD-drive lights up in the front but the green light keeps blinking. We try to stick the little needle thing to open it, and when we get the cddrive open, it automatically shuts back. So it keeps wanting to shut itself, even when it is shut.

Nothing ever comes up.. and we never hear a beep. There is this red light at the top/left of the motherboard (looking from the backside of the computer) that appears.

We tried unhooking all the fans, except the CPU fan of course, and it still does it.

Our conclusion is that it is either the powersupply or the processor.

We are going to wait till the powersupply comes in and try that one, just in case.

What does this sound like?

Also.. the motherboard could also be the problem I imagine. I am going to get him to make sure the CPU is down good..
 

A:Nothing comes up, no beep , wow

Although I have heard that the newest Dells use power supplies with wiring that matches the rest of the world, the older ones did not. Do not try to use that power supply again. Keep your fingers crossed that nothing got fried in the process

Today my computer started beeping every 10 minutes or so and it's really loud. I rebooted but it still beeps. The computer is in my bedroom and I'll have to turn it off to sleep if I can't figure out what's causing it.

It's not the soft beep somebody said was the computer re-initializing - but more like an alert.

Can anybody help with this nuisance?
 

A:What the beep??

After a few days drying out, my machine is at least attempting to start. It goes as far as the beep and stops. The keyboard is not lighting up and the monitor says no computer. I have opened and cleaned it up as much a possible. The floppy drive doesn't even kick over. Any help would be appreciated. It just repeatedly beeps. It got pretty wet in an accident about a week ago. Any ideas where to go from here?

I can see the problem is in the registry, but the registry entry beep can't be accesed in the registry. Access denied is the error I get and the permissions can't be changed. Any ideas?

Q: No Beep

My compaq computer doesn't have the usual single beep at boot up but everything appears normal (or so I think). Have they stopped using the single beep with newer systems?
 

A:No Beep

if your compaq does not have an in case speaker then you wont hear the single beep. It may be that the speaker either does not exist or has been disabled. Then again I guess it is possible that with newer Compaqs anything is possible and they might have eliminated the POST Beep. How unreassuring that would be.
