If it has 3 beeps it has something to do with the Ram so check that and check everything to see if plugged in

Just replaced CPU and power supply on Gatewat GT5432. Turned it on and fans all start, but machine just beep-beep-beep-beeps. What have I done wrong?

Depends on the number of beeps and sequence. They are a code, but must be identified by the the BIOS manufacturer and version.

The computor beeps 3 times when switched on.

The consistent length beeps usually refers to faulty memory, check that your ram is correctly seated.

I'm having an aspire m5640. it does not boot. beep?

Yes if there are error on the system you should most likely hear a beep most of the time when there is no beep it is due to bad ram. Some times beep codes can't detect bad ram and your computer will not boot.
Open the computer up and see how many ram chips you have if you have more than one take the one in dimm slot 2 out. There should be small writing next to the slots 1,2,3,4 or Dim 1 dim 2 ect ect. you always want to keep slot 1 with ram so start by pulling out the ram out of slot 2 and turn your computer on. If your computer still dosn't post pull the ram out of slot 1 out and insert the ram that was in slot 2 into slot 1 if still no luck it's most likely your board but the best way to test this is to know that you have a good working stick of ram you could purchase one and if it dosnt work bring it back ... theres also the chance of your video card being bad but there is usualy a post code for it (beep code)
if you have no clue on what ram looks or how to open your computer just google for installing ram on a computer and you should find step by step guides

Pc starts beeping every couple of seconds and will not come up.

Do you see the power lights at all, do you heard the HD or fan ? Does it boot into BIOS

ACER Aspire- beeping sound - 6seconds when I power machine on

The beeps are telling you there is a hardware failure (POST). The number and length of beeps will give a better indication as to what has failed. Write back with that info and someone on this web site will interpret this for you.

Machine will not boot up

This could be several problems in order of cheapest to most expensive:
Memory: Take out the RAM and re-seat it, apply even but firm pressure. Try to boot again. If this does not work...
Power Supply: Your power supply might be dead, try to pick up a brand-name one and boot once more...
Motherboard: This is the worst case scenario, your motherboard went poof buying a new computer might be better than buying a replacement motherboard.

Hi wicklow123,
Sorry I haven't gotton back to you sooner. Its summmer here & I ride cross country.
I'm betting its the fan.
The fan that is running very slow. If that fan is for the CPU than replace it as soon as possible. A CPU fan should be running no less than 2000 rpm. Average speed is between 2000-3200 rpm.
Please define the beeps you are hearing. (Ex. 3 short & 1long, six short & repeating ect.) You'll need to know the name of you're bios. (Ex; Award, AMI, ect.) Go to this link & find you're bios. You should be able to find what the beeps are telling you is wrong & what to check. (There is a list of Bios on the left of the site.)
The video card. If its all copper fins I wouldn't worry. Be more concerned about the bios beeps & fan. It wouldn't hurt to add a side case fan which will aid in bringing in fresh air to both the video card & CPU.
(Link for case fans & more).

Good Luck!

Emachine Will not boot

different beeping patterns are codes which indicate what part of the hardware has failed (ram, video card, cpu, ect). the fan failure would not cause beeps, and would not cause the cpu to fail unless already in windows. if you could find out the manufacturer of your motherboard you could check with them about what the paticular pattern of beeps which you are getting mean.
