Resetting the bios should stop the beeps, 'JBAT1' terminal from pins 1-2 to 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. Get the pc running again on your onboard graphics or whatever it was, but enter the bios (f2 or DEL on start up)as you will have to reset time; also to dissable onboard graphics and enable your AGP slot as primary graphics controller as it may be dissabled in the advanced bios menu. Make sure you havent got an intruder device lead from your side panel as this could also be the beep which has to be cleared also in the bios

These are called beep codes and there should be a pattern of long and/or short beeps which will repeat. Once you identify the pattern we can help figure this out for you.

    Before you reset you BIOS settings make sure you document what they are set to. It could save you lots of problems .The BIOS setting may not be the problem and the may be considerably different from the default.

I have a Acer Verton E430 Desktop. Suddenly upon restart after the initial beep and Acer splash screen returns to restart with one short beep and process continues on and on.. Advise how to solve.


One short beep can be DRAM refresh failure.
  1. Remove RAM memory, Graphics card, other Plug-in cards, and Drive cables from your mainboard.
    Only CPU + Fan + Power cable are installed on the mainboard.
  2. Power on the PC, and listen to the beeps:
    • no beeps => Power supply, CPU, mainboard or BIOS is most likely defective.
    • some beeps => remember the beeps and next step.

  3. Power off the PC, and insert the RAM memory.
  4. Power on the PC, and listen to the beeps:
    • no beeps => RAM incorrectly installed.
    • same beeps as before => RAM is most likely defective.
    • beeps have changed => next step.

  5. Power off the PC, and insert the Graphics card.

    • some beeps => Graphics card is most likely defective.
    • blank screen =>Graphics card is most likely defective.

I hear two beeps when i conect power suply on my emachine t5212 model


Very sorry about your son.

If you can't find the real problem, you can always put that hard drive into another PC to get the files. If so, be sure to looking to a potential "jumper" setting on that drive for it to be recognized.

After starting my PC I only hear a peep


If you are getting long and short beeps it is possible that the graphic card on your system is not proper.

Either the graphic card is gone bad or it is not seated properly

Try to open the computer tower, disconnect the Graphic card and then see if it still beeps. If it does not beep after removing the graphic card try to reinstall the card and see if it is beeping. If the computer beeps even after reseating the graphic card then you will have to replace the graphic card.

Everytime i try to turn on my computer it beeps continuously i just installed new ram and a graphics card took them out put original back in and still does it.


The particular issue of beeping continuously is the RAM you need to check if the RAM is correctly installed. Make sure that the RAM you have install are compatible to you RAM slot. It will cause continues beeping and will not display the monitor.

Another thing you should check is the graphics card. Check this also if it is correctly installed. Install also the graphics card installer.
