My computer keeps beeping when i turn it on - Computers & Internet

    I have a similar problem with my HP Pavilion M7160N (XP Media Center). It will work fine and then shut off and start beeping with short constant beeps. If the word "beep" equals one second, then it sounds more like. be-be-be-be-be-be until I pull the power. Also, the computer does not boot up and the monitor has no signal. Other times, it boots up fine and at some point shuts down and begins to beep again. Thoughts?

This can usually indicate a RAM error (the beeps are from the power on start test POST).e
On the other hand it may simply be a keyboard failure so try another or power on without the keyboard.

Other issues that can cause this are a virus or a newly installed program that is conflicting with windows.But as leecom asked num of beeps and lenght

Computer doesn't turn on, only beeping


Hi Agne Suursaar,

Thank you for contacting fixya.
Do a clear cmos and then try reducing the number of ram sticks that you use to just one, and keep alternating ram sticks in different dimm slots. You may have one or more dead ram sticks/dimms.

Step 1:

The memory of your computer was cannot support the system that you load. Just upgrade the memory or else replace of higher memory.

Just load operating system that your used previously. Because that was the compatible system that they used.

If a computer keeps beeping when i try to start it up , is that the hard drive?


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

No, often its memory or video card. The beeping pattern tells of the problem.

I would remove the memory modules from the machine, turn on again without memory, it will beep, turn off, unplug and reinsert one of the memory modules into the computer and turn on, it should work, if it doesn't repeat with another memory module.

if the problem is not solved count the beeps and are they long or short? and I'll know more.

Thanks

Computer makes beeping noise


The beeping is telling you something ... counting the beeps and matching that to the make and model on a beep decoder would answer your question.

What are you going to do about the switch controlled outlet? Id suggest you run a power strip from another hot all the time outlet. It is a death sentence to continue to shut your computer off with first warning it.

I hope this helps you

Computer turns on and beeps


Have you recently changed any hardware or BIOS settings? Is it one beep for 8 seconds or 8 beeps? If it's 8 beeps then that indicates a bad video card. If you are not using the on board video then try re-seating the video board or try a different video board.
