    Laptop beeps 7 times

    Try link: How to identify beep codes: When a laptop or computer first powers on, it goes through an initial set of diagnostic tests to make sure vital components are preforming correctly. These tests are called POST or Power On Self Test. When a test fails, the user is notified via POST codes, Light codes, or Beep codes. For diagnosing Beep codes you need to:
    • Power on the laptop or restart it if it is already on.
    • Listen to the number of consecutive beeps when the computer begins to boot. Restarting the laptop may be necessary and should not harm the laptop at this time.

    I have a lenovo laptop whick beeps when i switch on how do i stop it

    A single beep is ok, it is the Bios telling you that the laptop has passed all the system checks. Rapid beeping indicates a sticking key on the keyboard, if you are getting any other beep sequences, please repost and describe what is happening when the beeps occur and how many beeps there are

    Any help for beeping acer laptop when opening..thanks


    i would like to know how many and the kinds of beeps? there are what they call beep codes which indicates what kind of problem the your laptop is experiencing: here are the common ones:

    0 beep = no power, loose card, short
    1 short beep = normal,POST (Power On Self Test), your computer is ok
    2 short beeps = POST error, review screen for error code.
    continuous beeps = no power, loose card, short
    repeating short beeps = no power, loose card, short
    1 long, 1 short beeps = motherboard issue
    1 long, 2 short beeps = video issue
    1 long, 3 short beeps = video display circuitry
    three long beeps = keyboard/keyboard card error
    one beep, blank, incorrect display = video display circuitry

    aside from the 1 short beeps, you need to take your laptop to a technician to have it looked at.

    cheers mate!

    Turn on laptop and it gives the cursor and a blank screen plus a continuous beeping sound.can you tell me what's wrong? Mel

    sorry to say but you have Memory or video problems

    Do you know what type of bios its running ?

    is it one long beep ? or just short continuous beeps ?

    1 long beep is graphics card failure

    constant short beeps is memory failure depending on motherbord manufacture

    It can be fixed by you if its short constant beeping if its the long beep tho it isnt quite as eazy as you have to remove half of the laptop to get to the graphics card

    if you msg back with the laptop model number i can look into this further for you
