Usually when a computer emits beeps it's a memory issue. Try re-seating memory modules one at a time to see if one is defective.

HP BIOS beep codes
http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/eng/support.html

Because Hewlett-Packard (HP) uses a variety of motherboards and BIOSs, their computers use a variety of beep codes. Instead of listing each model's beep codes, links are provided to the support pages of several popular Hewlett-Packard desktops.
Note: Hewlett-Packard and Compaq merged in 2002 and the new company dropped the Compaq name from all but a few consumer product lines--such as Presario desktops and notebooks. This table lists only HP-branded desktops, while the next table lists Compaq-branded machines.

SOURCE: dell vostro 200 4 repeated beeps on start up

Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes P
c

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

My sonicare toothbrush starting beeping during the night and kept beeping.


Probably two reasons for this. 1) the contacts at the base of the brush are not clean which will prevent proper charging , the low battery beep is telling you to recharge.2) the battery needs replacing.

I have a Graco baby monitor, it started making a noise for the last 2 days, could it be a battery problem (even with power connected)? The monitor is about 1.5 years old.


Annoying! happens to us too frequently, but this works. We ended up buying a new one and returning our broken one after owning for three months From Manual:) 5. Turn on the Nursery Unit using the On/Off switch on the side. The green power light should come on. 6. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit will lock on to the Nursery Unit and the top four (4) green LEDs will shut off. A second later, you will hear a series of beeps and the connection LED should change from red to green. Your monitor is now ready for use. 7. If the top four (4) LEDs do not shut off, power off the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit and repeat steps 4 and 5 above. 8. If the connection LED on the Parent Unit does not change from red to green and the unit begins to beep, press the channel "ch" button on the Nursery Unit. Within a few seconds, the Parent Unit should lock in on the Nursery Unit and the connection LED should change from red to green. You may hear an audible beep during this process. 9. If the Parent Unit is still unable to lock in on the Nursery Unit (connection LED will be red and the unit will beep), power down both the Parent Unit and the Nursery Unit. Wait for 10 seconds then hold the volume down button on the Parent Unit while pressing the On/Off switch. When the unit powers up, you will hear a single beep and all of the soundlights will illuminate. Release the volume down switch and within 2 seconds you will hear two beeps and all of the Sound Light LEDs will stay lit and the bottom LED will be red. 10. Repeat steps 5

Disher washers starts and then stops and ECO 40 flashes.


sounds like water in the base has caused the safety float switch to activate try tipping unit backwards if water comes from base this is causing the problem if water has leaked past the door seal intermittently it will eventually collect enough in the base panel to activate the safety float switch tipping the machine and emptying any water in the base should clear the problem however if you experience the same problem within a short time period then it probably means that a hose or component is leaking into the base panel and would to be found resolved

Hp computer will start, all the lights come on but the screen is black.. also.. it makes this loud beeping noise 4 times?? whats wrong?


The beep is more than likely a beep code (sounds stupid and obvious, but they're there for a reason).

What make/model is your machine? We can look up the code by make/model. That will diagnose your problem.
