Gateway GT5678 won't start. 1 beep followed by 2 short beeps

Q: Gateway GT5678 won't start. 1 beep followed by 2 short beeps

Hello,

My Gateway GT5678 has recently stopped booting up. It turns on, then shortly after beeps once followed by two quick short beeps. According to the gateway error codes this indicates a video card failure. The strange thing is once out every 15-20 or so startup attempts it will start fine. I have tried reseating the video card and have tried taking the video card out and using the other vga output on the tower and no luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. -J

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.)

Best test would be another video card. Aside from that, it could also be the motherboard.

Running XP pro Sp2, IE 7 & Mozilla 3.6 8 . Using Mozilla, facebook, farmvile game. Mozilla has the file plugin-container.exe, which taskman shows hogging resources. Out of the blue my pc started the beeping randomly while using mozilla. When I close, no beep since. All other apps are standard, usual and up to date. No new hardware or software. Recent past & some random scroll bar moving by it's self, have not found a fix. That happens on both browsers. Should I remove or disable the plugin-container.exe, & would it affect mozilla & farmville? I read where it suppose to stop the browser from crashing, but it doesn't.

Computer has been working fine, all of a sudden a game im playing locks up, so i reboot the computer. I then start the game again and a few minutes later it unexpectedly quits and i cannot do anything but move the mouse.

I reboot the computer again and this time the monitor does not display anything and i get one long beep and two short beeps. I looked up the codes and saw it had to do with the video card. I take the video card out and disconnect it and i get the same beep (dont know if its because the card is absent). Any other ideas?

Hey guys, this is what has basically happened:

Last night, I was on my PC when a powercut happened. All power gone for about 1/2 hour, no big deal...I thought. When the power came back, I was able to log onto my PC however there was no internet, and this was apparant on all other computers in my house and the router also indicated this.

I then logged on this morning, with no internet still however there was internet in the rest of the house. I thought to restart the router and also my PC, however, when I tried to turn my PC back on, all i got was 1 long beep then 2 short beeps. I did some research and found out that this was a visual problem..something to do with my video card.

Is there anything immediate I can do right now to verify this, or do something..whatever..

Thanks for your time, any help is appreciated.

Yesterday I shutdown my computer and when I went to turn it back on it was not sending a signal to the monitor and the computer bios was letting out a sequence of beeps.

1 Long beep followed by two short beeps.

I consulted my Motherboard manual to find that the beeps meant the graphics card was loose/not in all the way. So I opened it up jostled the card a bit and voila the computer started up and ran without a problem for ten minutes. I restarted it to get some updates and...well same problem back to square one.

It seems as though everytime I take the GC out and put it back in the computer will work but if I don't then it won't work.

PS: I cleaned the PCI-E Slot and the GC.

Any thoughts?

A:Long Beep Followed by Two Short Beeps

Make sure the fan is spinning on the card.

Take a pencil eraser and clean the gold contacts on the card, becareful and blow the eraser dust off before installing.

It could just be a bad video card that acts up when it gets hot

I have an IBM Thinkcentre M50 with a P4 CPU and a AGP card Geforce FX5500 and it works just fine. I would like to upgrade the video to a Geforce 6600gt which I have. However, when it is installed, I get the beeps and no video. Is the Motherboard incompatible, is the power supply not good enough. It's only 230w. Lenovo says the card should work, but I'm thinking, what do they know.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I just removed the card and placed it in another older PC and it worked. I then put the card back into the IBM with the power supply from the old PC and nothing except the beeps.

This post is going to involve 2 PCs, which I will refer to as PC 1 and PC 2. They are identical except for their graphics card and power supply. They both have ASUS P5E Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E8400 3.00GHz, 3.25 RAM, running windows XP.

PC 1 ( gforce 8800gt card and a 500 watt power supply )

The LG monitor went off and never came back on. My sister had an old vga Mitsubishi diamond plus 91. I didn't have the funds yet to buy a new one so I hooked that up and everything was fine for about a week or two. Then the monitor shuts off and goes into power saving mode. I assume power supply and it sits waiting for a new one.

PC 2 ( gforce 9800gtx card and a 700 watt power supply )

The LG monitor went off and never came back on. I take the Mitsubishi from PC 1 and a week later, the monitor shuts off and goes into power saving mode. I assumed the monitor finally died and went out and bought a new acer flat screen. I hooked it up and when I booted up I heard 1 long beep and 3 short beeps. The monitor went into power saving mode. I then researched and found that beeping code to be an Award Bios error saying the graphic card was bad. I pulled the card from PC 1 and upon boot up I heard 1 long beep and 3 short beeps.

As I read this back to myself, I am seeing and feeling sick at the thought of....did I fry 2 graphic cards by using that old vga? They are both lifetime warrantied but it means both PCs down for as long as it takes to RMA them. I am currently on my laptop, but my worl... Read more

when I try to boot I get one beep then two longs beeps, I have tried everything possible too, switching out hardware/psu, etc.

I can't figure out what the beeps mean to fix the problem..

one short beep then two or three long beeps.

the computer turns on when I plug the power in so I guess the power button is broke, and the computer sometimes starts to post then shutsdown waits a few seconds starts up and gives the error messages.

Hey, I have a problem with my laptop...it won't boot up; as soon as I try, I get 1 long beep, followed by 2 shorter beeps. There is no display on my monitor either.

I'm really stuck at to what to do...I've done the usual taking out battery, booting without power supply, letting lappy heat up, removed and reinserted both RAM slots, checked the fan was working okay, tried to boot using a different monitor (acted as if PC was on standby)...all to no avail.

My laptop model is:
http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/laptop/5401.htm

It's about 16 months old, so past its warranty, I read that the beep pattern was a BIOS code for Video Card failure, which I now presume is the problem, but just wanted confirmation so I don't end up wasting a bomb of money if I need to get it repaired (diagnosis usually costs at least £50 here :s)

Any help would be greatly appreciated, unfotunately I'm no pro with these things...

Thanks!

Hello all,

I just obtained a tower for free from my school. It is a Compaq Evo with a Pentium IV processor. It has a video card, cd drive and floppy drive with usb ports. I have an old 4 gb HDD hooked up to it. I was told that all it needed was RAM. I have a ton of Ram sticks. This computer has 3 SDRAM DIMM slots. When I push the power button I get 1 short beep and 2 long beeps.. then nothing happens, no display, not able to get into BIOS or anything. I have tried multiple monitors, I have replaced the video card, I have tried every single SDRAM DIMM stick that I have, I have reset the CMOS with the button and with the battery, I have removed and reinstalled the processor, I have unplugged and reconnected all cables.. still getting 1 beep and 2 long beeps. When I look up the beep codes it seems to be a RAM problem, but I have a hard time accepting that with all of the RAM sticks that I have tried that work in other computers. If anybody can help lead me in a different direction I would be extremely grateful!!!

I just built a computer for the first time - I've had 2 different people look at it as well as hours spent on Ventrilo discussing what I may have missed.

The Computer:
Intel Mobo DP55kg
Processor Intel i7 870
no onboard graphics
ram is corsair 1600mhz 4x2gb chips #CMX8GX3M4A1600C9 ddr3

So basically when I hit the power button - all the fans etc come on but it won't show up on the monitor. One short beep happens showing it's booting then after a few seconds I get 2 long beeps, pause, 2 long beeps.

Now the information that came with the mobo says this is a graphics error - I've already replaced the graphics with a brand new one. Some other forums suggest it's a memory error - but could 4 different sticks really be bad? A friend suggested a bad batch, but before I go out and buy more stuff that I'll end up returning to the store - does anyone have any other suggestions as to what is causing this?

Things I've Tried:
Replaced Video Card
Tried different connections with video card
tried 4 different sticks of memory in all 4 different slots with different combinations.
took the entire motherboard out and made sure no posts were touching then put it all back
tried just the basics, no HD or Sata cables
reseated the processor

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.

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

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:One short beep, one long beep

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.

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.

I tried to start the computer but I am just getting one short beep followed by a long beep.  I think it has to do with the ram.  I tried reseating the ram in different combintations but none of them seem to improve the computer.  edit: oops I put this in the wrong section.  I have a desktop not a notebook   sorry for the confusion

Hi, I have recently built my own PC but for some reason I keep getting 1 long beep followed by 3 short beeps, but it doesnt happen all the time, sometimes it will turn on fine and other times I get the beeps, it is really annoying me because I cant find any problems, I have read that these beeps can be the Graphics card or the RAM but I find it strange that it does it sometimes and not all the time, can anyone please help with this problem, Thanks.

My system specs are as followed:
Asus P5K Premium Motherboard
Intel Quad Core Q6600 CPU
8GB Reaper RAM
BFG NVIDIA GTX280 OC Graphics Card
CoolerMaster 1000W PSU
 

A:1 Long Beeps, Followed by 3 Short Beeps (sometimes)

hi 1bellb

make sure that all of your RAM chips are firmly placed into their slots and that they aren't susceptible to movement in and out of the slots. You could also run Memtest on your chips from here - www.memtest.org. You've heard right about the beeping sounds probably being caused by RAM issues. Good luck

I am given this when I start up - the computer still works, but I can't get into bios without losing video... it goes like this:
1 long beep - post has passed all tests
a couple of seconds later 2 beeps - some hardware has failed
then 4 beeps

Specs are in drop down. thanks



Update: I cannot press tab to show post messages either... it just skips them and carries on like normal. I don't get beeps anymore but still cannot get into the bios.
 

A:1 beep - 2 beeps - 4 beeps? AMI bios
