    You should check all the panels, there will be RAM (memory) located somewhere. The empty slot you saw could be for some other device that was not installed.

    when the computer turns on and you then hear the beeps, are they all the same length, sometimes, beeps codes for example do a couple of short beeps and one long one and other combinations.

When i start my computer it makes a loud beeping noise it is a acer aspire4520


What you are hearing is probably a BIOS beep code.

Beep codes are a bit like Morse code, and are used to indicate certain faults with the hardware.

The codes change from manufacturer to manufacturer, but generally speaking one beep = System OK, so if your PC is starting up normally and you have no other problems there is nothing to worry about!

Hope this helps,

Matt

Loud noise from speakers when laptop closed/standby


Hi there.
Your microphone is on, and when you close the lid it is closer to the speaker. It needs
a loud noise (like closing the lid faster) and it enters into a feedback loop.
We need to find a way to make the microphone not play back.
Try left clicking on the speaker icon in the bottom right of the screen, and click playback
options. Here mute the microphone, and see if it solves your problem.

Good luck

Computer: laptop HP dv5000 OS: Win XP Age: purchased 2006 My compuer makes several loud beeps. Then It locks up. I have to crash it by holding down the power button. This started yesterday. ...


What the beeps are for is to alert you that there is a component that is not going smoothly through POST(Power On Self Test) This is a test that the motherboard runs everytime you start your pc. It is the boards way of double checking hardware and that the most basic software to find the windows installation is in order.

These beeps could generally be the same but different according to the manufacturer of the computer.

This is what I need you to do so I can effectively provide assistance. When You turn on your Pc i need you to count how many beeps it is making, as well as frequency. Like if they are short beeps or long beeps. Thats the difference you need to listen for. It may sound randoom but there is a pattern that the motherboard is trying to convey to you to state what is wrong with it. Record the beep sequence and provide me with a little more information on your pc and we will see where we go from there.
