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 Sandeep,
Please share the beep pattern is it long beeps or continuous beeps .Tell us what is the power button color is it off or flashing and also is there any other light which is on while you hear the beeps.
Please share the service tag of the system also so that we can understand the model better to help you.
For me to better assist in troubleshooting, please click my DELL-username and send me a Private Message with the Dell Service Tag number and your email address.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 -

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, every time I log on to xp, while it is loading the desktop, there are two beeps. I have checked in the sound scheme and it is the xp default beep. I think I read somewhere that this can happen when xp fails to connect to a device. I am not sure exactly when it started but it may have been after dual booting linux with xp. Could it be a beep for each of the 2 linux partitions? Thanks in advance.

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.

Hello. So yesterday my PC was running fine (i have this pc for about half a year). Today I turned it on and it showed that windows can't repair itself so i turned PC off... Then I powered it back on but it doesn't show nothing on display, but PC itself is powered up (all fans are spinning and power on button lights up). There was no beep that was always when i powered my PC up. I searched this on the internet but nothing helped me. Sometimes there is no beep at all... Sometimes there is one long beep and then 2 short beeps.
Please help!

I am planning to reinstall xp pro. But will it stop the sound ? Or is it something wrong with hard wares?

I also tried to reinstall xp pro. I set up the boot drive in the cd rom, but I am not able to reboot from cd rom either.
What can I do ?

I'm assuming windows 7 is on the system ? 
First, I'd suggest you run diagnostic tool on the system. It will scan for any possible hardware issues that might be causing problems for the keyboard
1. Power off system
2. Power on system, quickly start tapping F12 key continuously. You should be in the diagnostic screen. After the quick tests, run full tests as well. Please report back any error codes.

Hi Virag22
Thanks for writing to us.
Have you made any hardware or software changes lately?
How many time does it beeps before shutting down. 
If possible please record the symptoms and send to us as an attachment. 
Meanwhile you can try doing a power cycle by disconnecting the charger and battery, hold down the power button for 15 secs and then plug back only the battery and power up the machine, if it runs fine, again shut down the system and plug in the adapter as well now and power on. 
Let us know how it goes.

I recently bought a XPS L702X. 
When I boot the pc and when I start typing, I sometimes get a beep sound for every single button I press on my keyboard.
It's about 50% of the time honestly. Sometimes I can boot the pc, start typing for 30 mins and I hear no beep. But sometimes I start pc and first hit on my keyboard immediatly gives a beep sound. Also it could just start in the middle of a text I'm typing and end 3 sentences later without me doing anything about it.
The letters are written, but the sound that comes with it, is very annoying. 
I read a few things about this problem, and some people say to check bios and turn off things related to keyboard sounds.
I checked that but I couldn't find it and the things I found about my keyboard in bios were not changeable.
So, anyone knows a solution to fix my problem?
