Question about Computers & Internet
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

that your RAM is securely seated
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including
the leads from your ((motherboard
to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not
faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and
to have and end to function
obvisously the beeps are windows searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

Turn on your PC and listen for a beep. Your computer runs a diagnostic upon startup called "post." Post checks for the basic requirements for your system. This includes RAM, processor and video functions. If those three basic elements are working properly, you will hear one beep from your computer's speaker and you can be assured your processor still works.
If you hear multiple beeps, count the number of beeps you hear as this will help you determine if your processor is functioning properly. If you are running Phoenix BIOS, make sure you count and write down the beep sequence.
Consult your motherboard's BIOS instruction manual; there will be a section on the "post" startup. Five beeps means a processor error for most standard AMI BIOS systems. The number of beeps you here will tell you the problem your computer is experiencing that is preventing it from booting up. Once you know how many beeps to look for, you can safely determine if your CPU is still functioning properly.
