Tip

Computer beeps


If you try to power on your computer and nothing happens but a bunch of beeps there is something you can do. The beeps actually mean something. To make sure you can hear the beeps check in the bios options. If there is an option for a silent boot you won't hear any beeps. If you hear one beep every time your computer starts then you don't have to worry about this.

If you want to check this setting refer to my other tip on how to enter bios and change boot settings.

If you try to boot your computer and nothing shows up on your monitor do these steps first.
1-Check all your cables in the back of the computer.
2-check your power source and power cord to the monitor
3-try another monitor if possible
4-If on a power bar try to turn off the power bar and reset the breaker

If you try to boot your computer and nothing happens and you hear beeps look at this website. The beeps you hear are actually telling you what is wrong. Look at the website by clocking on the link below and click on the computer beep codes link. If you want to scroll down past the link it will show you bios codes to enter the bios in your computer

Toshiba satellitep205d-s7438 won't boot up


You need to be more specific and tell what happens when you plug in the power cord and press the power button. There are a number of reason why a computer will not boot, but if you tell what's going on someone can help you.

Computers don't boot for basically the following reasons, 1) the power supply is bad. That means when you plug it in you don't see any lights, and when you press the power button nothing happens, you hear no fans, no beeps, no blinking lights, no hard drive spinning, no cd drive clicking and nothing appears on the lcd screen.

2) A motherboard issue, usually when this happens you will either see blinking lights or hear beeps. Those blinking lights and beeps are codes that tell the technician what is really going on.

3) Static Buildup - try removing the battery and the power cord then Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and Press the Power Button. If it boots up you had static buildup and can replace the battery, count your blessings and Thank The Lord cuz a dishonest repairman would have told you he had to replace the motherboard for $300

Toshiba x205 Sli1 suddenly died. Got 3 beeps.


3 beeps usually means that either the chipset or the processor is dead. Nothing you can do, take it to a repair shop.

PC will not start


This sounds like a memory error, can you define the beeps. There is a thing called a "beep code" on all motherboards, the website for the motherboard defines what the beeps mean. For example: one long beep followed by two short beeps of continous spaced beeps without a break. chris http://www.motherboardsrus.net

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen


3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s

Hi Octane, If you?re not getting any beep codes then something real basic is wrong. To start off I would check the following: -check the new power supply and ensure it is designed for your motherboard. -check the power supply connections to the motherboard, the connectors should mate up exactly to the motherboard connector. -check for shorts (mounting screws against capacitor leads are common), correct grounding and so on. Any of those can cause the same symptoms. -test the power supply in another computer or if not available you can generally pickup an inexpensive tester for $10 to $15 at a computer store that sells parts. -make sure your motherboard is designed to accommodate your processor. I would expect a beep code for this but you never know. Let us know how things go and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
