Myemachine model EL1360G-UW11P stopped working after I cleaned it I took the back cover off and the fan but after I put it back together it started to have abeeptypenoise butwasntabeepitwascontinuous


Knowing the beep pattern will help diagnose the issue. Power on the computer again and listen for long beeps and/or short beeps. There are other possibilities, but if you just cleaned out the computer, I suspect you might have dislodged a memory stick. Make sure they are seated completely and the white tabs are locked securely in place. The beep code you hear will ultimately help determine where the failure is happening.

My HP pavilion a620n won't power back on when I push button on the front, there is a little green light on the back that went off when I unplugged everthing attached to the back. Could this be a b


it could be a faulty switch or the bad lead connections

test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE SATA

MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty if its a flat ribbon 40pin ide

this will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure dust free connections

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have a finishing point so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure the CPU has a secure dust free seating with thermal paste

make sure your ram modules are securely seated with no dust in the sockets also the Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket
on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

hope this helps

My T5026 emachines has a hard time when turned on it makes soem beep noises over and over again and the fans are running , The monitor screen won't come on.. And it doesn't boot into windows ..


Hello, When computers "beep", they're sending the user the signal that there's some hardware problem, sometimes damaged hardware or dirty hardware, first you have to identify the piece of hardware that is giving you problems, I would go after memory in the first place, open your computer an you'll see the internal parts. Remember to turn off your computer first.

This are the memory modules, if you have more than one take only one first, unlock the memory module by pressing the small plastic tabs on both ends of the slot, then take out the memory module. now turn on your pc.

If the pc is still beeping, turn off the pc again, take the second memory module out and put back the one you took out, tu put a memory module remember to force the memory into the slot the right way, if the memory is not fitting into the slot turn it down side up and push it into the slot until you hear two "clicks".

If both memory modules doesn't seem to respond, turn off your PC and take both memory modules off, clean the contacts using a pencil eraser, be gentle while cleaning the contacts as a lot of pressure will damage the memory modules, put them back in and turn back on your PC.

Take the dust off the memory slots by using a paint brush.

I would try cleaning both memory modules first and putting both in once the contacts are clean.

Try this and if you're still having problems I would recommend you to seek for a professional to solve your problem.

Hope this tip helps and have a nice day.

Don't hesitate to reply if you're still having problems.

When power up all i get is the beeps and blank monitor and no lights on the key board. The lights remain green after the beeps stop


King of beeps is important. Most probably a faulty video card or RAM memory. Could be just a bad connection due to dust in the slot. While checking, be careful not to cause additional damage by static electricity, i. e. turn PC off but leave the power cord in to keep chassis grounded, also touch something connected to ground to discharge your hands, touch the components only on the edges.

When I turn on my computer it does nothing but make a buzzing alarm sound about every 5 seconds. It doesn't go to the start up screen or anything.


Hi,
The buzzing alarm is a beep code which indicates a hardware problem.
Try removing the system memory and clean the brass contacts and the slots it goes into, then reseat the memory and try to boot again, the memory looks like this >>>>>>>

What you need is a soft, clean, dry paintbrush.
Remove the powercord from the back of the PC.
Start by removing the ram and clean the contacts with the brush, then clean the brass contacts, reset the memory and the powercord and try booting the computer.
If it still won't boot count the beeps and how long they are and post back here.


Regards.

Beeping noise and will not start back up


Hi there.
Open the side panel on the computer case (make sure its turned off and the power cord is removed from the back) take out the system memory (ram), get a clean dry paintbrush and clean the brass contacts on the memory and also clean any dust away from the slots it goes into, once you are happy that all the dust has gone reseat the memory making sure its well seated and clipped into place, close the side panel, return the power cord and turn on the PC, hopefully this will sort the problem out.
Please post back with the results.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

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
