Take the RAM out of its slot then put it again, also if you have an PCI device on your motherboard check whether they are inserted properly or not, try this one

    My Emachines w3052 would shut down and beep. I pulled out the old PCI modem and it works fine now. I cant say if putting another PCI card in there would effect it that way again, but I will avoid that slot.

Maxdata tower computer : - when switched on bleeps 2/3 times and doesn't engage the mouse or the keyboard and the monitor shows " no video input ".Just no response and doesn't turn itself on...


BIOS Beep Codes
Whenever a recoverable error occurs during POST, the BIOS displays an error message describing the problem. The BIOS also issues a beep code (one long tone followed by two short tones) during POST if the video configuration fails (a faulty video card or no card installed) or if an external ROM module does not properly checksum to zero.
An external ROM module (for example, a video BIOS) can also issue audible errors, usually consisting of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. For more information on the beep codes issued, check the documentation for that external device.
There are several POST routines that issue a POST terminal error and shut down the system if they fail. Before shutting down the system, the terminal-error handler issues a beep code signifying the test point error, writes the error to I/O port 80h, attempts to initialize the video and writes the error in the upper left corner of the screen (using both monochrome and color adapters).
If POST completes normally, the BIOS issues one short beep before passing control to the operating system.

Beeps: deda, deda, deda, and RED led on motherboard flashes along with beeping. Sopmetimes happens if tower moved slightly, or may do so if left in idle mode, shuts down and starts the beeping. ...


This series of beeps tells us that your RAM is some-times not being seen by the computer system.

You need to remove the RAM modules and clean the gold finger connectors with tissue paper.

Clean out as much dust as you can with a vacuum cleaner, then reinsert the modules in the correct orientation.

Easy as they will only go in one way. There is a cut out on the RAM module that separates the gold finger connectors.

Computer Beeps When Windows is Loading


First, you should be sure that the cooling fans are working properly. Especially the one that is on or directed to the processor. You'll need to open the system up to check this. Turn on the system and make sure all the fans are spinning fast. Now, check for lots of dust or dirt on the fans and processor heat sink. Most likely, the inside of your tower needs to be cleaned. If there is too much dust and dirt in the fans and on the processor heat sink, it can't cool itself and the system shuts down to prevent damage to the processsor once it gets to a certain tempature. I have seen this often. You will need to use a can of air on the fans and processor heat sink. There will be a lot of dust and dirt that will come flying up....which is good Then use a vacuum and a soft bristle attachment to get out the remaining dust. Put the system back together and you should be good.

Your manual should show you how to take the cover off your PC to access the motherboard.

I hope this helps you.

Computer does not fire up. I do have steady green light on power supply. All motherboard connections appear to be tight.I have come home before to a beeping noise in the past. After resetting the machine...


That beeping noise may be due to over heating.
Most machines today have a temperature setting that will turn the machine off once the temperature reaches a certain point.
Safety feature to avoid damaging your cpu and components.
The shut down and restarting allows the CPU to cool down briefly.
Thus allowing you to start the machine again. Usually it will shut down again once the temperature threshold is again reached.
Good test is let the machine sit for 30 min. If it immediately starts up and shuts down a few minutes later. Heat build is usually the problem.

Typically this is due to heat sink or Fan on the computer CPU.
Check to be sure both are connected to the CPU and functioning.
If you have a fan on top of the heat sink above the CPU. Make sure it is working correctly. Dust build up over time will eventually kill the fan bearings or reduce airflow. Heat sink can and will become clogged with dust also. Replacement fans are easy to find. Heat sinks are even easier to clean.
Depending on your machine and CPU position replacing the fan can be a challenge. But can be done in a few minutes with minimum tools.

Each bios has different post codes and it is difficult to tell what is happening with out knowing the bios of your particular machine. Listen for the beeps and check your computer manual.
You can also google for this. Here is a web site that lists a few bios P.O.S.T codes.

Once you know the beep sequence you can look it up. Usually points to the problem and you can go from there.

Good luck!

Won't complete booting


Sounds like at the very least, the hard drive is. This is common when a file required by the OS is corrupted, and the OS tries to not damage data so it restarts or shuts down.

Computer shuts down.


Hello;

So i guess that the PSU is good. As i diagnose of what you have said, i digested a conclusion that when the computer shutdown when application run. there a problem conflicting the application to another application or such an application trigering the system to shutdown.

Some causes of this problem are:

The system is infected by known and unknown virus
The driver of the system are not properly installed
The application program committed an errors trigering the system to shutdown.

Possible solutions:

1. Scan you system with a potent anti virus
2. Remove the installed driver of the sytem and reinstall it after restarting
3. Unistall the application that causes shutdown problem and you can reinstall it after restarting.
4. remove newly installed hardware or install the correct driver of the hardware.


Note in scanning your system with antivirus you should scan it it safemode.
some usefull links: http://www.precisesecurity.com/antivirus/online-scan.htm

If all the solution did not work to your system. please notify me for further solution.

best regards, melnavz
