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.

Loud beeping sound on start up , now will not start up , power ok


First remove the Ram and boot the system without it. If you hear continuous two beeps, then the problem is with the Ram, you need to replace it. If nothing happens, then your cpu or your motherboard is gone. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

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.

Beeping Upon Bootup


dependent on how many beeps you hear is dependent on what might be the problem. A fuller explanation from pushing the power button to nothing happening would be more than helpful. Beeps in a Poweredge can mean motherboard, memory or as you said power supply problems.

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.
