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.

My whirlpool white magic 650 P produces contineous beep sound while connected to the electric plug. However the power switch and light indicators on the mechine is not working.


Sounds like you have a control logic issue. Either a button on the control panel is stuck, or the control board is defective. Find the model number on the unit and post it in the comments please.

Beep continous


Not much information here to go on.... was it working OK and then the "beep continous"?

This is usually because the power supply connector is put in wrong. Check your connections.

Sensor beeping continously in reverse


Try to clean rear parking sensors. Check also electric cables and connections, clean if necessary. Commons faults are sensors out of order. If one or more sensors faults you hear only a continous constant noise when you put in "R" gear. You need a VAS, VAG-COM, Bosch KTS, ... diagnosis scantool. The factory parking system will be scaned from errors with this instrument, and you will find exactly which sensors are out of order (for example: rear left center sensor, rear right side sensor break off, short to ground or short to plus).

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.

Hello, hetul58519

I installed some extra memory on my PC, didn't do it quit right and recieved a series of beeps untill I fixed what I had done incorrectly during the install. The beeping is the computer way of telling you something is not right, it is trying to audibally tell you what that is. Now, it is up to you to search for the hidden meaning behind the continuose beep. Do a search for "computer beeps" or "computer audio cues". Do you recieve any warnings other then the beep? Is the computer acting funny in any other way?

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.
