A BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) is an electronic set of instructions that a computer uses to successfully start operating. The BIOS is located on a chip inside of the computer and is designed in a way that protects it from disk failure. A main function of the BIOS
is to give instructions for the power-on self test (POST). This self
test ensures that the computer has all of the necessary parts and
functionality needed to successfully start itself, such as use of
memory, a keyboard and other parts. If errors are detected during the
test, the BIOS
instructs the computer to give a code that reveals the problem. Error
codes are typically a series of beeps heard shortly after startup.
First you need to know which BIOS you have and how many beeps it is producing... these beeps are the POST - Power On Self Test. They tell us if there are problems such as missing keyboard, video card not working, memory faults etc...
Then you need to go to the appropriate BIOS site and see what the number of beeps mean.
If it is a single beep - it means all is well...
As you are not getting anything more you should check to see if the Hard Drive (HD) light flashes - if so - the HD is probably operating ok and loading your system but there is either a problem with your monitor or video card... borrow another monitor and see if that helps...
But it all depends on the number of beeps you get and what kind - long and short beeps (like morse code).
You really aren't giving much info, so here are some beep - codes, also make sure nothing came loose on the motherboard or other components ( do this ONLY if you know how ) Safety first.
BIOS Beep Sound core list
1 short(Beep) System booting is normally.
2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
Long(Beep) continuous DRAM hasn't inset correctly.
Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has problem.
1 short(Beep) DRAM Flash Error
2 short(Beep) DRAM ECC Check Error
3 short(Beep) DRAM Detect Fail
5 short(Beep) CPU Error
6 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
8 short(Beep) Display card memory Error
9 short(Beep) ROM Error
1 long - 3 short(Beep) DRAM Damage
1 long - 8 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
try installing the software drivers for keyboard and mouse.....then see whether keyboard and mouse is working...if the problem persists.....then the problem is in motherboard.....that you have to give it to repair shop....so that you can identify the problem.....i am a software engineer.....and i have experience in these areas....thats why suggesting you this idea....try this....it will work 100%.....
Hi, The compute post tests the computer, insuring that it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process. 1 Short Beep, Normal POST, computer is okay. No problem. 2 Short Beep, POST error....floppy drive 0 error and keyboard error........This can happen because there is something wrong with your floppy drive, something is causing your computer not to detect it or that you simply don't have one. Check your floppy cables and connections first to ensure that they are
connected properly, if they are then you may have a burned out
controller on your motherboard, a bad floppy cable or drive, or your
motherboard may be faulty. If you don't have one you can disable the
message in your computers BIOS. To get to the BIOS screen, during boot
up at the bottom of the screen it will say something like "press F2 for
setup" or something along those lines. That will take you to the BIOS
screen. In the settings there should be options like first boot device,
second boot device, and so on... change the one that say 3.5 floppy to
something else such as your CD rom.That will get rid of that message.
Keyboard error or no keyboard present shows up when your computer can't find your keyboard or there is something wrong with it. Replace with new keyboard. Thank you
This is a stupid error. Check the motherboard inside and see if anything has gotten unplugged. There is no way for a chipset to break or come off without you doing it. Is this a DOS start up screen or a windows screen? The tech that you talked to is an idiot. If this is a windows error, it is some software installed that is giving this error. May be a motherboard monitor. If you have a motherboard monitor and everything is running cool then it is nothing. This can be checked in the BIOS; hit DEL or and F key when it starts to check your temps. You can buy any computer and it will work with any keyboard or mouse, monitor,speaker, or anything else that will connect as long as it is not software related with the operating system. The operating system will have to support the drivers for a printer, scanner or something like that.
