Gateway m350wvn will turn on but it beeps

Usually these beeps are signs of hardware failing inside the unit. Does everything load correctly? Start with removing one stick of RAM at a time to see if the beeps stop, if they continue it may be a bad motherboard.

Laptop Beeps on start up 1 long and two short beeps

You've checked the memory board/card, but have you tried using another memory card? The 1 long followed by 2 short beeps indicates that there's a problem with the memory card. Try to remove the memory card, then wipe the gold traces with a dry cloth and put it back in.

If you try replacing the memory card but you get the same problem, then proceed with the video card.

Keyboard beeps when any key is pressed

The reason these beeps are happening is because there might be a key that is slightly depressed enough to where its registering keystrokes. Move your fingers all over the keyboard and see if you the beeps stop after you do that. If it still is going on then that means your keyboard is bad and will need to be replaced.

I turn on my gateway notebook, get 3 beeps & a blank screen "HELP ME smart people"

You probably knocked something loose when you dropped it. Try re-seating your memory cards. 3 beeps is usually a memory issue.
