Error code one long beep on startup smells like something burning

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Oct 12, 2008

    I noticed the problem developing over a couple of monthe. First, the screen would blink on and off after the power saver had turned it off. Then the machine started beeping on boot up, but I didn't record the beeps. I noticed the text on the boot up screen was wrong, eg the "O"'s had dots in the center. Then it went to "In power saver mode" on boot up. Then the beeps stopped. Then it went to one long beep and would not boot until I pushed the power button off and on. It will boot when I push the power back on a 2nd or 3rd time. When it does boot, running in 1200x1600 32 color, it works fine. Sys Diag found a error in video ram and with the CD player.

    have you installed a new hardware earlier? that is most likely the one burning, maybe its not compatible with your system.

Go down about 1/4 of the page to the heading "AMI BIOS beep codes" and look for your BIOS manufacturer. This should help you solve the problem. Please reply which BIOS model you have for more help.

I have a quanta 3082 MB in a HP Pavilion zd8230us laptop when I startup it beeps constantly got any ideas? anyone


The beeps with have a pattern to them. Listen closely when you first turn the laptop on and listen for the pattern. It might be something like 1-3-2 (1 beep, wait, 3 beeps in a row, wait, 2 beeps) It will repeat for listen for a bit to make sure you have the correct pattern. Once you have that pattern got to the HP webpage, in the support section, in the search type in "beep code errors". It will give you a list of beep patterns and tell you what the problem is. It could be the RAM, it could be another problem with the motherboard; those codes are what you need to have first.

PC WON'T PWR. ON, GREEN PWR. SPPLY LIGHT JUST FLASHES. DO I HAVE A BAD P/S OR WHAT.


Maybe but try searching for computer error codes on the net. Listen for the "beep's", count them and that will give you a good idea of what's happening. Also you might try smelling the back of the tower (around the power supply) if it smells like burning wire, that's the problem.
Good luck
