Try making your hard drive as the first boot in the bios and just connect your hard drive only on the motherboard ( remove cd/dvd drive, etc..). Make sure your hard drive is detected in the bios. Then restart your computer again.
1 beep is the BIOS signaling all is well after testing components inside and attached to the pc. On newer motherboards it's heard only when you have something attached to the USB connectors . Do a simple test: boot with an connected USB device, like a running printer or an memory stick - you will hear the short beep as you were used to.
Check the cable between your monitor and computer. If this is a new install and you have added a graphics card, you will need to boot up once using the on-board VGA. Doing so will allow you to turn off the on-board VGA in the BIOS. Then you can shut down and move the monitor cable to the new graphics card and reboot.
If you hear your computer beep once then your system has no problem. If it does'nt show a display, try to check the power of your monitor, if it has power. Check the power cords and also the vga connection.
Hi richardbyers, three short beeps means there is a problem with your memory. (Base 64K memory failure). Unplug the power from the PC. Open the case & touch the bare metal on the case to discharge your self. Remove the memory & reseat it. Leave the case opened & re-connect the power cord & try booting again. If you still hear three short beeps, shut the system down again as mentioned above. Gather some house hold alcohol & a couple cotton swabs. Drip a drop or two onto a cotton tip & wipe the memory's contacts, both sides & do not touch the contacts with your fingers during re-install or cleaning. Blow the memory slots out with canned air or use a clean paint brush. Insert the memory again & connect the power cord. Boot the PC. Try this first. If everything works out than good. If the problem does not clear its self let me know.
You have voice message telling you CPU test failed , but does it BEEP at all ? if you have a Beep code then replace the CPU fan ( when CPU gets too hot it will either shut down or the PC will not boot up at all )
Sounds to me as though you have a video issue. Those beeps you hear are called POST beeps, and they are an error message. It could be trying to load still, but you are just not seeing anything. Is all you get a black screen to begin with? If so first check to make sure your video card has not come loose. If that is not the case, then I would suggest replacing your video card. Hope this helps.
