Re: Continuous Beep-Beep-Beep.. When I turn on T3304 E ...
There is a faulty hardware in your PC. here the beep error code this might help to locate the faulty hardware in your pc, and which help you to isolate the problem.
1 Short beep - System is operating normally. 1 Long beep - Memory refresh circuitry has failed which indicates a problem with the motherboard. Try reseating the memory DIMM or SIMM modules. Make sure if you have added memory that it is rated at the correct speed for the system. 1 Long 2 Short beeps - The video adapter has failed, or the video memory is having a read/write failure. Try reseating the video card. If the video card is a PCI video card, try moving it to another slot. 1 Long 3 Short beeps - The system does not detect a monitor. Verify that the monitor cable is properly attached to the video card or the onboard video and to the monitor (if the monitor has a detachable cable). If possible, try another monitor on the system to verify that the video adapter is operating properly. 2 or 3 beeps - There is a problem with the system’s memory. Reseat the memory DIMM or SIMM modules. 4 beeps - This indicates a non-functional timer. This indicates a problem with the motherboard. 5 beeps - This indicates a CPU (Central Processing Unit or processor) failure. Try reseating the processor. 6 beeps - This indicates a keyboard controller failure. Try reseating the keyboard connector. 7 beeps - Another indication of a processor problem. Reseat the processor. 8 beeps - This indicates a video memory read/write failure. Reseat the video card (if any) and memory DIMM or SIMM modules. 9 or 10 beeps - This indicates a ROM (Read-Only Memory) checksum error or shutdown register failure. This indicates a defective BIOS chip(s). Reseat the BIOS chips. 11 beeps - Indicates an error in the cache memory. If the system has a Pentium class processor, reseat the processor. If the system has a cache memory module, try reseating it. These beep codes will vary depending on the system hope this would help.

Hi, you are having a problem with your add on cards, try to pull out everything that you have add on to you PC, then try to put 1 by 1 and try to turn on. If it beep once its OK, but if it's continue then the add on cards are the defective.
Do you mean that your computer does not turn on just casing light lit on and Fan runs only? What means new, memory and case?
If just lights on, fan runs but no image on monitor or blank screen, you should hear some kind of sound form inside of the CPU casing. This is called beep code. If you hear continuous beep or 3 same beep with same length, it means your motherboard is missing RAM, just connect it properly. If does not work or stop try a good RAM installing to see the result and plug your this RAM to a working machine that have the same kind of RAM. If you hear one long beep with two short beep After PC switching on, or Two long beep with one short beep following - that means your Graphics card is not connected properly, or damaged or miss matching. If you do not have any beep code after switching on the machine, your motherboard may not have build in emergency speaker. Try to clear this things first. Please mention details of your computer with model number of your motherboard. Let me know updates.
Hi names Rui, i question for you does your PC give a beeping sound when you turn it on? if does can you tell me how many beeps it gives?
if it give a designated number of beeps this might be the problem i will give you a chart so you can differentiate the warning beeps you hear.
1 Short Beep DRAM refresh failure
2 Short Beep Parity circuit failure
3 Short Beep Base 64k RAM failure
4 Short Beep System time failure
5 Short Beep Process failure
6 Short Beep keyboard control gate A20 failure
7 Short Beep Virtual mode exeption failure
8 Short Beep Display memory read/write test failure
9 Short Beep ROM BIOS checksum failure
10 Short Beep CMOS shutdown read/write error
11 Short Beep Cache memory error
1 long, 3 short Beep Conventional/Extended memory failure
1 long, 8 short beep Display/Retrace test failed
hope this will determine the problem if none of this warning beep is heard try reseting the power botton in you PC cause sometimes the power botton will loosen cause of continuous use of the botton.
That's a RAM error. First, open it up, remove power cord and remove the RAM sticks then put the power cord back and turn it on. Will be the same beep. Then power off, put one RAM stick in, and power on again. If no beep, put the other stick(s) in (it may be just a bad contact). If same continuous beep, remove stick and put the other one in, by the same procedure. Power on again and see if the continuous beep is coming again (if it's not, then first RAM stick is faulty). This way you can see which RAM stick is faulty further on depending on how many RAM sticks you have. If it does it on all of them, it may be the slot(s) that is faulty you can only figure it out with a new RAM stick.
Try pulling out your video card and your memory chips, then re-seat them and restart. If the computer doesn't start, take either the memory or the video card out, then try to restart.Listen to the beep as it resarts, and if there is a change in the beep code, you have found your faulty part.
You really aren't giving much info, so here are some beep - codes, also make sure nothing came loose on the motherboard or other components ( do this ONLY if you know how ) Safety first.
BIOS Beep Sound core list
1 short(Beep) System booting is normally.
2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
Long(Beep) continuous DRAM hasn't inset correctly.
Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has problem.
1 short(Beep) DRAM Flash Error
2 short(Beep) DRAM ECC Check Error
3 short(Beep) DRAM Detect Fail
5 short(Beep) CPU Error
6 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
8 short(Beep) Display card memory Error
9 short(Beep) ROM Error
1 long - 3 short(Beep) DRAM Damage
1 long - 8 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
Hi again. It's the memory thats the problem, continuous beeps indicate a memory failure, take the system memory out and clean the contacts and the slots with a dry, clean paintbrush. Re-seat the memory and re-start the machine. If you still get beeps post back.
What kind of beep sound? A long solid beep, or continuous single beeps? Power off the computer and when you turn it on if it produces endless single beeps, the problem can point to your RAM. If you have more than one stick of RAM, take them all out and put in each one at a time in the first RAM slot. This will determine if only one of the sticks of RAM is faulty if you only get the beeping with one of the sticks.
If you can, please tell me what kind of beeping did you get.
