That is from the POST routine at start up. Those beeps actually tell you what is wrong.

Depending on your BIOS, they can mean different things. this page will help you to narrow down the issue. - LINK

MY TOWER KEEPS BEEPING, LIKE IT IS SYNCING BUT DOEST STOP MAKING THE NOISE. WHAT TO DO? I HAVE ALREADY TURNED ON AND OFF AND UNPLUGGED AND REPLUGGED.


Sounds like you might have a hardware issue, computers generally use a loud beep (not from the speakers or headphones) that alert the user that something has gone wrong with it. I recommend you take it in to a computer store to have it looked at. Issues like this might stem from overheating, which would cause your computer to immediately switch off in order to prevent components from further overheating.

When I turn the computer on it goes into digital power save and windows does not load


The monitor is going into power-save mode because it's not receiving a video signal from your computer. Are you turning on the computer at the monitor or on the tower? If you're turning the tower on are you hearing any noise (i.e. fans running, beeps, drives spinning, etc.)? Does the power light on the tower come on and stay on? If not you may have a bad power supply or other hardware issue.

Unable to power on computer


When you here this signal sound beeping this is an RAM memory error. Try to open your CPU casing and remove the RAM, clean the RAM with rubber eraser.

After that insert the RAM and try to turn on the unit. Once you can hear again the loud sound beeping the RAM are bad or faulty already. So you need to replace the RAM.

Hi there, seem to have lost my external harddrive on my desk top, and it is making a beeping sound??


Hard drives don't beep. They make a lot of sounds, but no beeps. If the drive is actually making an unusual noise, it has probably gone bad. Clicking would be a bad disk. Any other noise would be a bad controller board. A good shop may be able to slave your drive to another computer to try and save your data. But don't count on it. By the time a drive makes a loud noise, it's usually gone and unrecoverable.
Before spending a lot of money to recover your data, try the external drive on another computer. Maybe the connection USB port has gone bad on the original computer.

We have a computer tower that needs to be fixed. we got it from our neighbors that were gonna throw it out. it can still turn on but all it makes is a humming noise, then it acts like it's gonna start up...


Sounds like to me that either you're missing a bootable OS or its the harddrive. If it beeps, chances are the OS. You can buy a copy of Vista and have someone install that for you or you can do it yourself. But if you are nervous about such or dont know about computers, have someone else do it for you.

Loud noise


Typical problem in most computers, the fan is experiencing a "burn out." This means there is either something caught in the fan causing it to create noise, or the motor is going bad. there are two fixes for this problem.
1) open you computer's case according to its manual and remove the system cooling fan and give it a thorough cleaning.
2) you may need to replace the cooling fan with its recommended replacement model.

Hope this helps!

Computer beeping loudly


It could be that you have a keyboard malfunction, however it looks like there is a bios update that will eliminate the beep at start up. Go to Toshiba's support site and download the bios update. if that doesn't fix the problem then try a new keyboard. Being only 2 months old it should fall under warranty.
