The beeping ounds like overheating, assume you cleaned out the laptop cpu fan and heat sink when you had it apart? The shorting issue that you refer to, indicates that there is an internal fault in the circuit that carries the DC power to the board. I would dismantle the laptop and try to power it on on an insulated bench, to see if you can spot any arcing as the Adaptor is plugged in. Check the board and look for the inline ceramic fuse, use a multimeter set to the OHMS scale and test the integrity of the fuse to see if it is carrying a current (battery out and unplugged from mains obviously). Then look to see if there are any blown or burned capacitors and resistors on the board or any burned circuit traces. Also try a different adaptor and check the output voltage of the old one
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.
Hi, well firstly let me tell you that these "beeps" which you hear is in fact "codes" that tells us about the status of the PC. There are different types of beeps depending o the BIOS manufacturer such as Phoenix,Award etc
In your case the two beeps is related to RAM memory error. The computer is waiting for user input. Probably you upgraded your RAM recently & the PC is waiting for your input in BIOS & is shutting down automatically. Power on your computer, hold "F2" key to enter BIOS & "Exit saving changes". Well, dear your problem will surely be solved! Cheer up.... Please send us your valuable feedback & vote so that we know our strength or weaknesses.
For all troubleshooting, make sure the laptop is connected to the DC power cable rather than running off the battery. are you getting any beeps? if not, it's probably bad system board or cpu. if you are getting beeps, then that beep code will usually give a clue as to the failing hardware.
The beep code is signifying either improperly seated/ bad ram or improperly seated/ bad video card. Since you replaced the RAM I would say it would be a bad video card. Replace & reboot. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
You could shut down your by forced shut down. to do this, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds, during which a long beep is heard. The system will shut down. Try reinstalling the operating system to resolve this problem
