When a beep sound occurs, it means that there is always something.
Go to this website and find out what your beep means.

You will have to find out what manufacture your motherboard is from, and from there, you can see the list of errors from the beep sound that your computer is sending out.

Sounds like bad RAM memory. That is normally the beeps you get when a memory stick has gone bad.

I have a Antec performance all tower that use too beep when turned on now its just a solid orange light and does nothing


All PC's beep when turned on, it is a sign that the system has passed power up test. If it is not beeping then the system is faulty. It could be a power supply failure or something else.

Thank you for using FixYa

I would try shutting down the computer in the normal way, and turning off the monitor.
Boot up and turn the monitor back on.
If it still doesn't work, then I would check the cables and power plugs and wall plugs.
Check the mouse and keyboard cable and any other cables plugged into the computer.
The next step requires a seperate monitor or laptop.
Try unplugging the monitor and pluging in another monitor. Most laptops have a common
VGA adaptor jack or even an Svideo jack.
If the other monitor does not work, Then take to a qualified technician for repair.
It could be your power supply in the computer or video controller.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

I turn computer on blue light on computer tower comes on monitor power **** turns blue and the on screen message going into power save mode and then nothing change motherboard battery and took out graphic...


Short of it being something simple like your monitor cable is unplugged, the more likely problem is that there's a fault on your motherboard or graphics card.
You should have an internal speaker connected to your motherboard, it should be giving beeps depending on what the problem is. If everything is ok then there should be a single beep.
If you are not hearing anything try removing your RAM and boot up, you should get lots of loud beeps, if you hear nothing then it's likely your motherboard is faulty.

When turned-on. tower will not boot and only beeps


If you recently added new hardware, remove it. Also unplug any USB devices. If that doesn't get you past the BIOS screen, then you need to take your PC to a shop, it sounds like a bad motherboard.

Computer tower started beeping


If you added more memory this may make your tower beep.
If so I WOULD REMOVE THE ADDED MEMORY AND THEN RESTART

ASRock K7S41 / K7S41GX, sound 3 Beeps 3 times, then power off automatically


I had 3 beeps, pause, 3beeps, pause and so on.

Defective SMD transistor near the ATX power connector. Original is a 2SB1202 (marking B1202).
I bought a 2SB1203 which is stronger and soldered it in. The K7S41GX board runs as fresh as from the dealer.

Constant beeping and will not re-boot


Question- the beeping, is it short (1 second beeps) or long (2 or more seconds) and how many before it stops? or doesn't it? does it have any rhythm? The beeps correlate to some hardware problem, if you want to check the beeps yourself, just google "Bios beeps" and it will bring up a table of what the beeps mean.
