It depends upon which brand of BIOS is in your computer.
Generally in most cases, the beep code you are getting relates to the video. If your computer is a desktop then It is either faulty or the video card is not seated properly in the expansion slot.
If the video is part of the motherboard (this also applies to a laptop) then it is faulty and it is usually unrepairable or a new motherboard replacement is required.
If the video card is in the desktop computer, then it can be replaced with a new one.

The sequence of one long beep and two short beep when starting computer usually means problem in your display adapter. Make sure your VGA connector is connected properly to VGA out port.
If you are using VGA card (non on-board), you might want to make sure that the card is inserted properly to motherboard.
The beep indicates that system can not initialize display.

hi Robin.
if your computer is making a beeping sound when it starts. No, you're not crazy, your computer really is beeping, and the sound may be coming from inside your computer, not your speakers.
These beeps are called beep codes and are used by the BIOS (the software that runs your computer hardware) during the POST (an initial test to make sure your computer is OK to start) to report certain initial system errors. If you're hearing beep codes after you turn your computer on, it typically means that the motherboard has encountered some kind of problem before it was able to send any kind of error information to the monitor. The beeping, then, is a way to communicate a problem to you when the computer can't show a proper error on the screen.
Follow the steps below to determine what computer problem the beep code is representing. Once you know what's wrong, you can work to fix the issue.

How to Troubleshoot Beep Codes

Figuring out why your computer is making beeping sounds should only take 10 to 15 minutes. Solving that problem that you identify is another task entirely and could take a few minutes to hours, depending on what the problem ends up being.
  1. Power on the computer, or restart it if it's already on.
  2. Listen very carefully to the beep codes that sound when the computer begins to boot.

    Restart your computer if you need to hear the beeping again. You're probably not going to make whatever problem you have worse by restarting a few times.
  1. Write down, in whatever way makes sense to you, how the beeps sound.

    Important: Pay close attention to the number of beeps, if the beeps are long or short (or all the same length), and if the beeping repeats or not. There is a big difference between a "beep-beep-beep" beep code and a "beep-beep" beep code.

    I know this might all seem a little crazy but this is important information that will help determine what issue the beep codes are representing. If you get this wrong, you'll be trying to solve a problem your computer doesn't have and ignoring the real one.
  1. Next you'll need to figure out what company manufactured the BIOS chip that's on your computer motherboard. Unfortunately, the computer industry never agreed on a uniform way to communicate with beeps, so it's important to get this right.

    The easiest way to figure this is out is by installing one of these free system information tools, which should tell you if your BIOS is made by AMI, Award, Phoenix, or another company. If that doesn't work, you could open your computer and take a peek at the actual BIOS chip on your computer motherboard, which should have the company name printed on or next to it.

    Important: Your computer maker is not the same as the BIOS maker and your motherboard maker is not necessarily the same as the BIOS maker, so don't assume you already know the right answer to this question.
  2. Now that you know the BIOS manufacturer, choose the troubleshooting guide below based on that information:
    Using the beep code information specific to those BIOS makers in those articles, you'll be able to figure out exactly what's wrong that's causing the beeping, be it a RAM issue, a video card problem, or some other hardware problem.
  3. Try to turn off beep sound in the BIOS

More Help with Beep Codes

Some computers, even though they may have BIOS firmware made by a particular company, like AMI or Award, further customize their beep-to-problem language, making this process a little frustrating. If you think this might be the case, or just worried it could be, almost every computer maker publishes their beep code list in their user guides, which you can probably find online.

At start the computer - 2x beep - what is that ?


Here is a good link I found on the web. You can click on link below.
Also I found Beep Code with descriptions. If you find this helpful, please rate me.

I think a few OEM's have developed their own or use Phoenix or AMI beep codes, but for the most part motherboard manufacturers uses the IBM based ones because they are grandfathered in.

The meaning of beeps at boot depends on the BIOS that is installed. This will give you an idea, but my guess is you have a RAM problem. Try checking that it's properly seated, otherwise you could run a program like Memtest to confirm the problem. Pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck.

I hear beeping tone in my cpu when i plug it


When the computer makes those funny sound via the system speaker, it's not doing it because it wants to be heard. The computer is trying to talk to the operator/technician and tell them what's wrong.


So here are some codes to give you an idea of what might be wrong with your PC.

Beep sound continus


I went to google and it seems like the beeps can be problems for different problems in the hardware, this is what one message says,  there are lots of computer beeping answers out there: 1 short beep is your BIOS saying "HELLO I'M OK" 

Standard Original IBM POST Error Codes 

1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 
2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen 
No beep Power supply or system board problem 
Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem 
Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 
1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 
1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 
1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 
3 long beeps keyboard card 

Each BIOS company has modified these codes over the years.

Cusl2-c motherboard problem, no clue what it is


can you give me the beeps explanation. All computers have a standard "beep code" this is a standard code to determine the problems in boot up. Long beeps, short beeps, intermittent beeps all mean something. Can you give me your best definition of the beep codes ? long, short, quick successive beeps etc also can you give the nake and model of the computer.
