Fix error 301


Do you know how to access your computer's BIOS settings? It sounds to me like an advanced setting called "Hard Disk Boot Sequence" (or just "Book Sequence") may be mis-set. Normally,the setting would be HD first, then CD, then etc-etc-etc down to usually last of all, Floppy Drive. It sounds very much to me like yours is set to boot the floppy drive ahead of the HD.

When your computer is starting up, watch carefully for writing on the screen (usually top-left or along the bottom) that says "Enter Setup" - and press the key it says. I don't have my Thinkpad any more, and there were numerous contributors when I searched this for you, but most said "Hold down F1" while powering on and keep it down until a long beep" - Others said that if you can get to a DOS prompt do so and press CTRL-ALT-F11.

THE MAIN THING HERE IS THIS: BE CAREFUL IN SETUP. This is one place where you can cause yourself a lot of grief.. If you don't find the boot sequence screen (or if you do, and it's OK) write back with more information. BEST OF LUCK! We're here to help.

It could be a number of things. Most computers are programmed with sequenced beeps, ie one long beep....cmos battery low, two short beeps...hard drive error, etc. Like Mr. Hubbard requested, I will need pc manufacturer and model number to provide accurate troubleshooting information to your friend.

Acer computer won't boot has long buzzing noise


The long buzzing sound indicate the nature of the problem. Depending on the manufacture of your bios will determine the problem. With only one long beep you may have memory problem. The computer cannot initiate the boot sequence. Did you add any devices to the computer prior to your problem. if you did undo what you did. Make sure the computer is on, if nothing happens ( no lights, no sound, no fans etc.) the computer has a power failure. Make sure you listen to the beep if it is a numerous beep sequence note it down and check the web for computer beep during boot up.

I'm trying to recover my system, but everytime I push F11 to get to the System Recovery Manager, I get a repeating Beep.


That sounds like it might be "POST" code beeping out at you. If it goes beep beep beep (pause) beep beep (pause), or something like that, etc.... then it is definitely a POST code. It can be anything from a bad or unseated video card, to a loose memory DIMM card.

The computer's BIOS chip is hardwired to a dedicated speaker, if something goes wrong (like your video card is roached), it beeps out a series of beeps (not unlike Morris code). Check the manufacture's website, see what BIOS your model is using (AMI, PHOENIX, ETC..), and then look up their website to interpret the code you are getting. The computer Mfg.'s manual might also have that BIOS POST code information in it too.

Please give more detailed information about the beeping sequence. Like, does it ONLY beep after pressing the F11 key once, or because your holding it down (keyboard buffer is full then). Are the beeps continuous, or are their pauses between beeps (if pauses, count number of beeps between pauses until it repeats, usually has a long pause before it repeats if BIOS POST CODE). Also, did something happen just prior to your computer going belly up, or did it just not want to turn on one day? Give as much information as possible (make, model, OS, etc) about your computer, and what its symptoms are. The more info I have, the better I can help you.

When i boot up my computer it beeps like 25 times and then it freezes it tries to boot windows


What brand the laptop is?
How many beeps are short and long and in what sequence?
Do you receive any error?
When the computer starts it checks its hardware and proceeds to boot the OS (windows). If it finds a hardware fault it will beep a code and stop there. The beep code may depend on the fault itself (video, memory, etc) and BIOS brand (Phoenix, American Megatrends, etc). You can try entering the BIOS by holding the or keys as soon as you turn it on for about 5 secs while it shows the first logo on screen. Then in BIOS you can see whats the brand of the BIOS is and with that info search for the beeping codes for that BIOS brand. That will say what kind of fault the unit is having. I hope this works. Im new in this FixYa so I dont know if you can reply me with the answers.

When i boot up the computer it starts beeping immediately, otherwise boots just fine


The beeps are part of the boot sequence, more normally called the post report. The beeps length and number usually indicate a problem.

Check with the abit website, you need the post sequence for your motherboard.

Usually, with a post report, you get a single beep which means everything is tickety boo.

G31TM-P21 normally boots with series of beeps. Now will not boot properly from CD start sequence (for reinstalling op system) and gives a short beep about every 5 seconds. No information found on MSI...


Hi,
According to the sequence of beeps your getting from your computer, ther is a possibility that there is a problem with the memory module or RAM on your computer. Try reseating the memory then try to boot up again.
Cheers!!
