Computers have POST codes. POST stands for Power On Self Test. They are a series of beeps that have meaning due to the pattern of long or short beeps. You can google POST codes and see if you recognize the pattern. this will aid you in identifying what the problem is. From there a solution can be found.

Beeping noise coming from base unit


Usually when a computer emits beeps it's a memory issue. Try re-seating memory modules one at a time to see if one is defective.

Pressing power switch, computer green light below power switch does not come on; fans run; dvd player drive blinks; no boot up. monitor says no signal.


Does the computer Beep at all. If it does, and it beeps differently now than it did previously then that is a POST code and indicates a serious problem. If it Beeps like it used to but there's no video then you should still hear the hard disk clicking - that would be a Video card problem (or perhaps the monitor). If it doesn't Beep at all and it does not make a clicking noise then your BIOS, or Motherboard may be damaged.... perhaps by a failed, or faileing power supply (?)

Computer makes beeping noise


The beeping is telling you something ... counting the beeps and matching that to the make and model on a beep decoder would answer your question.

What are you going to do about the switch controlled outlet? Id suggest you run a power strip from another hot all the time outlet. It is a death sentence to continue to shut your computer off with first warning it.

I hope this helps you

Power pack beeping, no lights turning on


Unfortunately your laptop is suffering from hardware failure. You may try removing the battery and using only the power cord.If this solves the problem then you either have a defective battery or bad power circuitry on your laptop. Aside from that if its still under warranty sending it to Toshiba for repairs will be your safest and cheapest option.

Hi My mum is trying to switch her computer on, but when she tries to switch on her 'tower' it is just making a loud beeping noise then going off. She has tried switching it off at the wall, but she still...


That is from the POST routine at start up. Those beeps actually tell you what is wrong.

Depending on your BIOS, they can mean different things. this page will help you to narrow down the issue. - LINK

PC beeping, monitor will not display


we have different sound we can hear in cases of hardware problem, once the video card has loose contact it also beep continously, a beep sound also occurs when the ram(memory card) loose contact, one beep sound when it boot clearly it proceeds as go signal going to operating system. if you are using an upgraded video card remove temporarily and use the on-board from your motherboard. in case that it won't boot and still you hear a beep, beep ,sound then, switch-off the power take out the memory card clean the contact points(bronze color) with pencil eraser, make sure that no remaining residues of eraser remained before you install to the slot. i hope that this solves your problem
