Long beep error on startup - PC Desktops

Posted by on

  • dleskew76 Mar 25, 2009

    I have this same problem. When I turn on the pc, i get one long beep, then about 6-7 seconds later another one and so on. The fans all start up and run, but I get nothing on the screen. I have tried replacing the ram, but still get the same thing. Am I right in thinking that this could be a graphic card problem? Or is could this really be a bad motherboard? PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you.

Try cleaning up the copper terminal of your memory card with a pencil eraser, do it carefully by avoiding contacts with the chips or I.C. carefully swipe the eraser on the copper terminal only and if your sure that it is already clean, carefully wipe the teminal with a soft cloth again avoiding contact with the chips. if the problem occurs again, buy a new memory card.

Dell beep code meanings


If an error occurs during startup that cannot be reported on the monitor, your computer may emit a beep code that identifies the problem. The beep code is a pattern of sounds: for example, one beep, followed by a second beep, and then a burst of three beeps (code 1-1-3) means that the computer was unable to read the data in NVRAM.
YOu can find complete table on Dell support site.

Most of such errors can be fixed with a system utility software RegInOut

More than likely it's a memory error. If you have some spares, try them...if not, reseat them on the mobo.

Dell 5150 Start-Up Problem.. beeps


Beeping on startup is a memory error. The blue screen you got was most likely caused by a memory error as well. First, take out then re-install your memory. If the error persists and you have more than one stick, test each one singly to find out which stick is bad.

Error code one long beep on startup smells like something burning


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.
