Computer beeps and won't startup

My computer beeps a short beep every 25 seconds when I try to start it, and it won't start up. The windows xp startup comes on, then the screen is dark, it beeps and the xp startup window comes on again and the process goes on and on. Please help. Thanks

    Thanks so much for your response. I had tried all of that before writing in, disconnected, cleaned and reconnected everything and all that was accomplished was that there's no beeping anymore, but the computer still won't get past the windows xp loading screen...It loads, I get a glimpse of the blue intel pentium screen, then black and then back to xp loading screen and on and on. Could it be the motherboard? and if I change that, will I lose everything on the computer. Thanks for all your advice.

Computer beeps but won't boot


if the beep is continuous it is likely the ram modules have dislodged.
however if it is just the normal short beep you get every time the computer starts normally, then it is just the post beep this simply indicates that the hardware has passed the Power On Self Test or POST for short. this would suggest the issue is windows related more so then hardware related, i would try using a windows 7 recovery or pe disk to boot it from.

Compaq presario C700 continous beep when starting up


Potential Hard Drive failure, (Hard drive s.m.a.r.t. beep) or if MB beep it's chassis intrusion..

1. Remove battery + disconnect power
2. Hold down power button for 20 seconds
3. connect power only (no battery)
4. Turn computer on.


If the beeps stopped.. get a new battery, if the beeps continue..

There's a sound during startup


Hello,

There is no problem with your computer. It's just natural to have a beeping sound during start up. If there is, then it will show an error message in the screen.

If it's just a short beep, then it's normal.

Computer turns on and beeps


Have you recently changed any hardware or BIOS settings? Is it one beep for 8 seconds or 8 beeps? If it's 8 beeps then that indicates a bad video card. If you are not using the on board video then try re-seating the video board or try a different video board.

Beeping Blues


Something has hung up. Try removeing hardware, ie... battery, cd drive, keyboard, etc... until you find the nonessential piece of hardware that is hanging up your boot process. (nonessential to the operating system)

Video card


Working and Working properly are 2 different things.

Unplug your pc. Let it set for 1 minute.
Plug in your pc.
Press the power button.

Does your monitor do anything?
No? Then it doesnt work
Yes? Then it works

If you get any video such as your BIOS or WIndows loading then the video card is fine.

Also, if you boot and you hear noises like:
Long Beep short Beep short Beep short Beep
(Long short short short)
Then your pc is not detecting the video card.

Wont Post get 9 beeps!


This problem is due to the mix of registered and unregistered DIMMs. 64Mb and 128 Mb DIMM's are unregistered memory technology 256MB is registered memory technology. A mix of registered and unregistered memory prevents the server from completing startup, and results in an error beep sequence and a blank screen
