This is a POST error. Also known as a Power On Self Test. There are some basic things that need to be working before the computer will attempt to boot. Most of the time I find that the graphics card is the culprit. Turn on the machine, count the number of beeps and then do an internet seach for 'computer POST code' to find our what the error is. Other possible problems are Power Supply, CPU, BIOS, CMOS. 1st 64kb of RAM, I/O bus controller.

How do I fix my computer? I know the problem I just need a solution, it gives out one long continous beep when it starts and won't stop until I turn it off?


The "beep" could mean one of many things:

* the computer has overheated;

* one of the fans inside the computer has quit spinning, or is spinning much too slowly, and needs to be replaced;

* the computer's video-card is not properly "seated" in its slot, or is "dead";

* the computer's RAM is not properly "seated" in its slot, or is "dead";

* the computer's CPU is malfunctioning.

When starting up the computer, I get 5 short beeps then continous


These beeps seem to show that your system did not detect any RAM (memory) modules connected to it. Please check.

  1. Open the CPU case (turn the PC off first)
  2. Remove the RAMs from the slot.
  3. Turn ON your computer without the RAMs installed. Then observe if it gives the same beeps. If it is the same, then the RAMs might fail to register.
  4. Try to plug in carefully the RAMs in place. If you have 2 RAM modules, try to test 1 RAM at a time to see if the combination of the 2 mess up your system.

Continous beep when turned on


It identifiees Random Access Memory failure, Open the RAM cover at the bottom of the laptop, remove the RAM card/s from the slot, get the tissue, spray a bit of glass cleaner on tissue, and wipe the gold pins of the RAM. Reinstall and have fun.

Best of luck

No startup, just a continous 2second beep


This means that something has gone bad...

The RAM failing in most machines is a consistent BEEP BEEP BEEP, but shorter than two seconds. This could be RAM, could be something else. I recommend having it physically checked out. Office Depot is offering free checkups for back to school, if you bring it in they will tell you what is wrong for free, then you can post again and get instructions as to where to buy the proper part and/or how to install it.

Hope this helps!!

CPU power problem


Check whether all connection are good and take out any CDs in the tray. I guess this must be a SMPS problem.

I have thinkcenter machine when i boot the machine continous beep is originating first small beep and then continous beep and behave like this and system does not boot please suggest


Yes those beeps are a beep code. The way it is currently beeping means you have a bad RAM stick. Open case and make sure the RAM is seated correctly, sometimes it can come loose. You can also take one stick out if you have two and reboot. If it does it again then take that RAM out and replace it with the one you took out. If it still beeps then you need to buy new RAM. That will correct the problem.

Continous beep when I try to turn computer on??


Continuous beep indicates problem with graphics card. Please open the case and firmly place the card inside the slot.

If it is beeping with small duration RAM is at fault.

Hope ur problem will be solved.
