Hello to whoever can help. This laptop started making a beep (6 times) when booting, and never boots. The fan is also doing a hell of a noise. Any idea? Thanks for your kindness. Frank

Re: Laptop amkes a beep sound but doesn't boot

Hi Saniple, more than likely those are beep codes and should give us an idea of what is going on. Typically there is a specific pattern of long and short beeps. If you can identify them for us we can start the troubleshooting process

Re: Laptop amkes a beep sound but doesn't boot

It might be a problem with keyboard as well, I have acer laptop and the delete button is broken, in pieces = laptop might beep for keyboardbutton error, one of the keys might be pushed accidently down by themselves..?

While booting the system or while booting the players the beep sound occur 5 times for dell inspiron?

Step 1:

If you computer is not booting, there is an issue with one or more of your RAM sticks. It could be they have become dislodged. Turn off your laptop and remove the battery and power supply.

Step 2:

Touch bare metal you don't want static electricity on your hands.

Step 3:

Locate the door on the bottom of the laptop. There will be a door that houses the RAM. Unscrew the door.

Step 4:

Pull out the RAM stick / sticks. Replace them.

Step 5:

Close everything up.

Step 6:

Boot the PC. If there is no beeps and the PC boots then the sticks became dislodged.

Step 7:

If the PC is still not booting you need to replace your RAM sticks.

Acer 5742g Beep at boot up

I have a problem that looks like this one.

At boot up, after the POST, each time the HDD led blinks, the laptop produces a loud "beep", and refuses to boot, as if this phenomenon prevented the HDD to be read.

If I press the power button, it stops beeping. When I release it, it starts beeping again.

If I press F8 at the beginning and then ask for a normal boot, It boots normally. Anyway, in windows, I have some strange activity, like I would continually pressing Alt+Tab. If I press Esc, it stops immediately and then all seems to work fine.

Any clue?

My dell inspiron beeps 20 times at sturtup

I wonder if you have a keyboard issue. Most times the constant beeping means the keyboard is bad, but it doesn't normally boot or revert back to 5 or 4 beeps.

It wont cut on keep making a beeping sound

beeping sound means that you have a bad power supply. Normally when booting your laptop, the power supply supplies enough power to boot to the operating system. You consult HP to replace your power supply in your laptop.

Dell Inspiron 1545 will not boot up.

Try removing battery and booting on AC power only from adaptor
Then take out ram modules and reseat these, try to boot
Disconnect hard drive, DVD rom drive and try to boot.

If you get a beep sound, this shows that at least there is power to the system. Note down the number of beeps and post the result.
