How many beeps ??

The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules
Make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in. Open computer and reseat memory Sometimes when the computer is moved 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. Remove the memory modules from their slots. Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors. Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth. Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components. Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r Allow the pins to dry. They will air dry in a matter of minutes If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory. Try another computers memory Test all power and data leads that attach from motherboard to your hard drive IDE SATA make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty If its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail. Check the graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust reinstall it Restart your computer the found new hardware wizard should activate a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy drive have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty Computers need all Power and Data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error also check the keyboard for secure dust free connection ps2 and or usb Hope this helps.

Dell e178wfpc monitor shows power on light but no display.


You should check if the vga cable is tightly connected from monitor to cpu. If the cable is connected properly,then the problem must be with your monitor. Check with any other monitor. If you hear a beep beep sound, when you start the computer then your RAM has been damaged or not properly connected.

I have a MPC ClientPro414 and I had turned it off when I went to turn it on the screen will not come on. We do not have the install disc and am not sure what to do? The screen dose not light up to see it...


Usually computers make beep sounds when starting up.

Do you hear any of the beep sounds?
If you hear two beeps with an interval of a couple of second, than the computer should be ok.

It could also be the monitor. Try connecting the monitor to a computer that works, or try connecting a working monitor to your computer. If the computer lights up with another monitor, then the monitor is faulty.

If the computer still is not starting up with a working monitor, than the videocard of the computer should be checked next.

Monitor says powersaving mode then shuts off


Try the monitor with another computer.
Does the computer give any beeps when it starts up. A single beep is normal, any more than that you need to let us know what the sequence is. If you are getting no beeps, you either do not have a speaker connected to the motherboard or it could be that the CMOS battery is dead. Most motherboards use a CR2032 button battery, but check to make sure.
Believe it or not it could just be as simple as the CMOS battery, I have seen this many times.

Monitor black after cpu turned on


This can be any number of things wrong. Does the computer make any beep sounds when it starts?
If there is one, quick "BEEP" sound, than all is well, any more than one BEEP sound means trouble.
However, a computer screen going black like that can be a memory module has failed, or the video card, (if there is one), and it could also be a system fan going bad. Computers are designed to shut themselves off to prevent damaging the processor, and motherboard, if there is a bad fan, video card, or bad RAM. If you can take the side of the computer off, and start it up, try to notice if the fans, and hard drives power up. If they do, than you can move on to the RAM modules. RAM is harder to troubleshoot because if it is bad, the only way to find out is to replace it with known, good RAM. Or, if you have heard BEEP CODES at the start up, than you can search on the internet under "Beep Codes" and see if you can find out what the codes mean. If you are not comfortable with any of this, than you will have to find someone who is, and pay them to fix it.

Data is not sent to the monitor


The first thing to do is to pay attention for "beep" when your press the power button (or the reset button) to turn the computer on or reboot it. The beeps that a PC makes tells you a lot about the state of your computer. I couldn't quote for you the exact beeps to listen for, but your manual for your motherboard may tell you. Different beep pattersn tell you what is wrong with a computer.

I think for many common motherboards it is something like 4 beeps to tell you the graphics card has failed. Don't quote me, but that is at least along the lines of how it works if not the exact number.

If you're getting no display after starting your computer make sure you hear one beep. Then, listen for other activity. If you're computer has a floppy drive, listen for the 'floppy seek'. Otherwise, listen for hard drive activity. If it sounds as though there's activity along those lines but still no signal/display on the monitor perhaps check the cable between your PC and the monitor. Never hurts to just make sure the monitor is turned on of course.

If your monitor is on, and the cables are connected securely I wold restart the computer again and check for the beeps. I would be certain to count them and check the manual. Your graphics card may have failed if you hear abnormal beeps (more than one as one is usually the healthy indicator). If you hear no beeps then the PC is not even getting in as far as testing it's devices and could quite possibly be a motherboard failure.

Black screen


The beeps are probably BIOS beep error codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the computer communicates computer problems that occur early in the startup processes. It's likely the problem isn't your monitor but something in your computer box itself. If you can tell us what the pattern is we can start diagnosing your problem. We'll also need to know the manufacturers name, the specific model computer you have and what operating system you are running.

5500 hp monitor


Not sure how it could do it when the electricty is shut off unless it has a battery inside, and I couldn't imagine why it would. If the power cord is plugged in then the unit has power whether it's turned off or not. Then it could beep - that I could understand. I would contact HP support on this one! http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=support
