Question about Abit Fatal1ty RADEON X800 XL, (512 MB) PCI Express Graphic Card

1 Answer

Computer beeps once every 60 seconds.

This jusdt started today. I contacted AT&T tech suport because they are my internet ptovider and they could not find anything wrong at their end. Everything works, BUT every 60 seconds I hear a short beep. It comes from my PC but I can also hear it right by my keyboard, as well.
Does this mean trouble for my computer? I don't know anything about computers. I have a Dell XPS and a Hewlett Packard Laserjet printer and a very large Dell monitor.

    To start, please don't be technical as I know next to nothing about computer problems and fixes. I have a Dell XPS and a wide monitor from Dell that I have had since December of 2005, with no problems. Just this morning my computer started making one short beep every 60 seconds. I contacted my internet provider and, after testing, the tech rep said there is nothing wrong at their end. Do I need to call Computer Geeks or something like that? This is scaring me half to death. This is not coming from my printer, as I disconnected it.

    I have found the solution. ****, thank you for your efforts. I really appreciate the fact that you took the time to respond. In the meantime, I called Dell Technical Support and they took over my computer and tested everything and the tech rep told me there were no problems with my computer. He said, that in his opinion, the beep that I was hearing every 60 seconds, could be that I needed a thing called a Back Up UPS. So I went to Best Buy, where they had them for $99.00 and I bought one. My son-in-law came over and he plugged everything into that Back Up UPS and the beeping stopped. But I wanted to thank you for your kindness anyway.

    Without knowing exactly where the beep is coming from it is impossible to tell you what is causing it. Could be your cell phone under the keyboard for all we know.

I already sent an explanation to the two gentlemen who tried to help, expressing my appreciation for their efforts and telling them how the problem was solved. I contacted Technical Service for XPS desktops at Dell. After taking control of my computer and checking everything out, the tech rep said that the problem of the single beep that was repeated once every 60 seconds, did not originate with my computer. He suggested that I might possibly need to buy a new Back Up UPS, so I purchased one for $99.00 from Best Buy. My son-in-law, who is an electrician, came over and plugged everything into the new Back Up UPS and the beeping stopped right away. Thank you for this follow-up, as well as the people who took the time to try to help.

Draining problem?


Most of the time this happens, the problem is the interface panel. If you have changed the control, you probably have read the trouble shooting section in the tech sheet. They give no way to diagnose this problem except to change the user interface board. I have had found this usually solves a dead control problem.
There is one thing I will add that the tech sheet leaves out. After you have unplugged the machine and before you disconnect any wires, press the power button to discharge any lingering current in the boards. If you unplug it and press power button you will notice there is enough power to light the indicators for a split second. This must be drained off, and never disconnect the boards from each other with the power connected. If the connection is lost while power is on the system, it screws up the programming.
Post back if you have any questions or need help.
Thanks/Mike

Below are the instructions on how to power-cycle your network. This will fix a lot of out-of-the-blue network issues.
Unplug the power to your modem and router. Also, turn off your computer. Now that everything is powered down, wait 60 seconds. Then, plug the power back in to ONLY your modem. Wait another 60 seconds. Plug the power cable back in to your router. Wait another 60 seconds and then turn on your computer. Once your computer loads Windows and you see your desktop with all of your icons, give it a chance to connect to your network and open Internet Explorer.
If this does not work, then I need more information about your network. First, how many computers do you have on this network? If you have other computers on this network, do they connect with an ethernet cable or wirelessly? Can the other computers get on the Internet, or is it just this PC which is having the issue? What brand of router do you have? Which version of Windows are you running on your Aspire One? And, finally, do you have DSL or cable Internet (if you have DSL, obtain your DSL username and password - as well as any other pertinent settings - from your ISP)? Please reply to this answer if the above instructions did not fix your issue. If the above instructions worked, then disregard these questions.

The Drying light flashes and the unit beeps about once per second. At the same time the unit acts like it is washing (sounds of water washing insiide. The bottom is oompletely full of water.


so its beeping and flashing once per second correct this beeping and flashing is an error code that your unit is giving blinking lights or beeping sounds may indicate a problem with the dishwasher caused by power surges. To correct the problem, try pressing the "Start/Reset" pad to reset the dishwasher. If the problem persists, reset (reboot) the control by turning off the circuit breaker supplying the dishwasher for 30 seconds. Turn the circuit breaker back on and the dishwasher should function normally if you still have the flashing and beeping message me back Im going through the error code book as I type this if it still persists after you turned off the power then back on message me back with the number of beeps within 60 seconds as well as the number of flashing lights for instance if it does it every second or once every 5 seconds also if you have any further questions message me back them as well and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situaitons Thanks Rick

My computer turns on and i see the light and hear the fan but that's all it does and the monitor goes into sleep mode. Help!


Open the PC and disconnect all the drives cables including Power.
Plug in the PC and wait for a beep. If not, removes the memories. When Then plugin again, it should beep few times. if not, most likely the MoBo is dead.

If with one memory beep once, try with the other memory if you have more than one. Then, try this connecting one drive at a time.

The meaning of the beeps depends on what type of BIOS you have on your system. Since you're saying a short continuous beep every 60 seconds it sounds like you have no power, you have a loose add card inside your computer or a electrical short. Since you have mentioned your monitor, you may have a loose video display card. Do you have power and will the computer turn on but no display ?

3 audible beeps every 20-25 seconds


Try unplugging the washer for about 20 minutes then plug back in and use. I have found that this actually works! The only thing I can figure out is that it takes time for the electronic control to clear. If that doesn't fix the problem I would call sears tech since it is less than a year old. They have a 1-2 year warranty.
