    Could you count the beeps and tell me if they are short or long?

    Describe what the screen does when you get this error.

    Is it Blank?

One long steady beep means that either your power supply, system board (motherboard) or keyboard are no good. Since you said you unplugged the keyboard and got the same result aswell as the comment about the fan starting I can only assume that your motherboard is damaged, in which case I suggest you buy a new computer because the price you pay for a motherboard and service fees you could buy a new computer (or close to it). Before you do that though, you should replace the power supply first than if that doesn't work, exercise your options of replacing the motherboard vs. buy a new computer.
Let me know how you made out. Good luck.

Loud high pitched squeel through speakers and will not boot-up either from my Acer 4150LMi


Run the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Brand new viewsonic vnb130, worked fine for two weeks. Heard whirring noise today and then it boots up, gets to homepage beeps loudly on and off until it switches itself off about 30 seconds later.....


If your laptop is beeping it indicates a motherboard issue that can not be corrected without a technician. Since the laptop is under warranty I would return it with haste for exchange.

My Dell XPS M 15so will not start


If you have the installation discs I'd suggest booting into them or the recovery partition by pressing F12 and either selecting CD/DVD ROM or Recovery Partition.

Once in there make sure to select Repair your Installation by pressing R and continue once you get into the Command Prompt to run a check disk scan. To do this simply type chkdsk /r. This will compare the Windows files on your system with the files on the disc to ensure they are the same and not corrupted.

After that upon reboot you should be able to boot. Good luck!

Screen goes blank soon after switching on


Try "Safe Mode" (holding F8 key on boot and selecting "Save Mode"), then run diagnostics and an up to date (virus definitions) Anti-Virus full scan.
If Safe Mode is not accessible then you may want to consider a format and clean install by booting to your Windows (?) CD.

Screen is off


With the machine only being two weeks old, I would RUN not walk back to the store for an exchange. This is a hardware malfunction or failure, and there is no way that the machine should have done this in such a short amount of time. Just tell them that the machine froze, you shut it down by holding the power button down (there was no other way), and now it won't boot. Don't tell them that you left it until the battery ran out, a sudden shut down due to a dead battery can cause damage, and they may give you a warranty run around for that. If they give you any type of run around, demand a manager, then demand he/she give you an exchange. Don't take the run around and don't be afraid to get loud. Managers back down quick to a loud irate customer, they don't like other customers to think badly of their store. NOTE: If a machine ever freezes, and they will, you should shut it down by holding the power button down. It takes a few seconds, but the power button will override the system and shut the machine down. Most freeze ups are just due to software glitches and will start right back up, but in your case it's hardware, since the machine will not start up at all.

Hearing noise while switching on/off


Monitor clicks, pops, or makes other noises. Noise when turned on or off. It is normal for standard computer CRT .


How can I make my computer quieter? If your power supply has a power switch on it, you can easily determine how much noise your power supply generates by disconnecting it from the motherboard.

Good Luck, Read and follow instructions/Please dont for get to Vote/Thank You.
