How to fix 1-2 beep code on gateway dx4870-ub20p

Most computers come with 2 sticks of RAM. If yours only has one skip to the bottom.
Step 1
Start by reinstalling your RAM memory. Pull the pins on each side then remove the sticks of RAM. They should be in there pretty firm. DONT wiggle them out, just pull straight up. Then put them back in with the pins still "out". They should be firm to go in as well, again DONT wiggle just push straight down. Both the side pins should lock into place on there own once the RAM is back place properly.
Step 2
If this still doesnt solve it, pull both back out and only put one back in. If that doesnt work, put the other one in only. If still not working try the next step
Step 3
Uninstall all Ram sticks and reinstall just one in one of the slots. If that doesnt work install same stick in a different slot. If that doesnt work, use a different RAM Stick.

Do this, first disconnect your memory into motherboard slot and then power on your PC. if you hear repeated beeping means no memory installed, the motherboard work fine. try to insert again your memory. if your memory are two pcs. insert only one memory and then power on again your PC. (only one by one insert memory for testing so you can trace if one of your memory was defective).
Try this,
Motherboard beeping troubleshooting guide.
(Note: before touching computer parts like motherboard, memory, video card and specially hardisk the very important parts of PC. discharge your static electric into floor ground or the case of your power supply. need also external PC speaker. if no onboard PC speaker ).
No beeps means short circuit, no power, bad processor, open parts or defective parts specially capacitor parts.
See this sample picture of capacitor leakage and defective.

One beep means everything is normal the motherboard work fine.
Two beeps means cmos bios error and defective.
One long beep, one short beep means motherboard need tracing defective parts specially capacitor.
One long beep,two short beeps means videocard problem need tracing of parts CPU and blower fan for working good, also capacitor parts for leakages.
Three long beeps means keyboard error some key press stock up or modules parts defective.
Repeated long beeps means memory not detected, loose of defective
Continuous Hi-Lo beeps means CPU overheat or loose blower fan with heatsink into motherboard chassis.
Try this solution for your motherboard troubleshooting solutions.

Hope this information can help you.
Thanks for using fixya

My Computer Beeping when star-up. The Beeping sound is continue such as Beep...Bee...Beep...Beep..until I force it by pressing the start up button to stop it total. I think due to the new mouse and...

Beeps always indicate error excluding a one single beep only which indicate process.Every manufacturer has its own beep setting. it comprises on short and long beeps. If previously it working good, then your idea may be correct. replace both the keyboard and mouse with existing. start computer if now it not giving beeps it meant that one of them is causing problem. connect one by one and start computer you will reach. AND if even after replacing keyboard and mouse it gave beeps then shut down your system. Open casing remove processor and memory chip out and connect them again it will work now INSHALLAH.

My computer cannot boot because of long beep

beep code usually means a basic function was unable to start. A basic function might be reading memory, displaying video, or being able to send information to a hard drive. The most common problems that cause beep codes are memory and heat-related failures caused by a build-up of dust in critical cooling areas. Use the beep code tables in this document to help find what hardware component is causing the problem. This might reduce the time required to find the hardware component that needs adjusted, reseated, or replaced. WARNING: HP recommends that these steps be performed only by someone with experience in working on computer hardware. Incorrectly handling sensitive internal components can further damage the computer and can introduce the risk of personal injury. Using the correct environment for working on computers (ESD precautions and tools), use the following steps to isolate and fix the problem:
  1. Turn on the computer.
  2. Listen to the beep code and write it down. Write down the number of beeps before each pause, if the beeps are long, short, high in tone, or low in tone. You can use the other sections in this document to look up the beep code description. The beep code and its description can be used for further Internet research if needed.
  3. Note which fans are spinning, not spinning, or making strange noises. It might be possible to prevent the beep code by setting the fan speed to a higher setting in the BIOS setup utility or by cleaning the cooling fins and vents.
  4. hpweb_1-2_plus.gifhpweb_1-2_minus.gif
  5. Check the case fan and power cable.
    1. Turn off the computer by holding the power button for five seconds.
    2. Disconnect the power cord and then disconnect all external cords from the computer.
    3. Remove the side panel to open the computer.
    4. If the case fan was not spinning, make sure the case fan power cable is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard. Replace the fan if it was making excessive noise or was not spinning. If you had to plug in or replace the fan, replace the side panel, plug in the power cord and turn on the computer. If the beeps continue, continue to the next step.
  6. Disconnect the power cord and remove the side panel and perform each of the following tasks, in order, until the beeping stops. Before starting each task, unplug the power cord and remove the side panel. After completing a task, replace the side panel, connect the power cord, turn on the computer, and listen for a beep code. NOTE: If removing or disconnecting a hardware component prevents the beep code, that component is probably causing the problem. However, a failed motherboard might produce beep codes associated with a component other than the motherboard.
    1. Clean cooling components that have become clogged with dust. If beeping continues, continue to the next step.
    2. Remove a memory module. If the computer stops beeping, the memory module might be bad, is the wrong type of memory for the motherboard, or was not fully seated or connected. Reinsert the memory into the socket to see if a connection was the problem; otherwise replace the module. Remove each memory module, replacing the one that was previously removed. If beeping continues after checking all the memory modules, continue to the next step.
    3. If the computer has a graphics adapter, remove it. If the beep code changes or continues with the same beep pattern after removing the graphics adapter, the adapter might still be good. Reseat the graphics adapter into its socket and continue to the next step. If the beep code goes away, the graphics adapter might be bad. Try reseating the graphics adapter, making sure it is fully locked into the connector on the motherboard. If problems continue, replace the adapter.
    4. Remove a PCI card. If the beep code goes away, the card might be bad. Try reseating the card into its connector on the motherboard. If problems continue, replace the card. Remove each PCI card, replacing the one that was previously removed. After checking all cards, if beeping continues, continue to the next step.
    5. Disconnect hard drives and CD or DVD drive cables (IDE and ATA) from the motherboard socket. If the beep code goes away, the cable or socket is probably bad. Look for bent pins inside the IDE socket on the motherboard and straighten any bent pins. Try reseating the cables into the connectors. If problems continue, the drive itself might be bad and might need replacing. Disconnect each drive cable, replacing the one that was previously disconnected, until all have been checked. After checking all connections, if beeping continues, continue to the next step.
    6. At this point, the problem is probably the motherboard or processor. Make sure any jumpers on the motherboard have not fallen off their pins and into the case. Make sure jumpers are set correctly. Otherwise, have the computer serviced by HP or by a qualified service center.

3 short beeps.

This indicates a memory problem

Open computer and reseat memory

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

Swap memory location

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

Beep..beep..beep..(Three times)

check the new memory in all memory slot that u have. use thinner with a art paint brush just past it in the memory slots, just like cleaning them up. then place the memory about some seconds. switch it on. if doesnt work see your graphic card. or try a kingston memory. kingston memory works on almost all motherboard. some others even new, they dont work on some motherboard.

Did you try resetting your BIOS. If you havent then reset your BIOS and try to start the computer again. If it doesnt start then there is problem with memory.
Try another slot(PC has two slots for RAM right) if it still doesnt work then you may have to try replacing your RAM.

Jetway p4mdpt with an error beep


Probably one or more RAM modules has gone bad.

I suggest you leave just one memory module in your motherboard and see if it boots,
if it does not try changing the memory modules and try putting it in different socets too.
If you have only 1 memory module I suggest you leand one from a friend, just make sure its a correct type of memory, your motherboard uses DDR type memory don't try to put DDR II memory in there

Hope this helps!

Did you fix your problem with the VKM400AM-S not booting, only beeping?

Probably your mobo does not support 1 GB RAM in one DIMM slot.. Check Motherboard Manual.
