Yes those beeps are a beep code. The way it is currently beeping means you have a bad RAM stick. Open case and make sure the RAM is seated correctly, sometimes it can come loose. You can also take one stick out if you have two and reboot. If it does it again then take that RAM out and replace it with the one you took out. If it still beeps then you need to buy new RAM. That will correct the problem.

When starting up the computer, I get 5 short beeps then continous


These beeps seem to show that your system did not detect any RAM (memory) modules connected to it. Please check.

  1. Open the CPU case (turn the PC off first)
  2. Remove the RAMs from the slot.
  3. Turn ON your computer without the RAMs installed. Then observe if it gives the same beeps. If it is the same, then the RAMs might fail to register.
  4. Try to plug in carefully the RAMs in place. If you have 2 RAM modules, try to test 1 RAM at a time to see if the combination of the 2 mess up your system.

No startup, just a continous 2second beep


This means that something has gone bad...

The RAM failing in most machines is a consistent BEEP BEEP BEEP, but shorter than two seconds. This could be RAM, could be something else. I recommend having it physically checked out. Office Depot is offering free checkups for back to school, if you bring it in they will tell you what is wrong for free, then you can post again and get instructions as to where to buy the proper part and/or how to install it.

Hope this helps!!

Computer it ll sound a contineous beep form the on board speaker and there is no display


It's some sort of hardware failure, system board is probably the most likely culprit. Could be major or minor.

A cmos reset could solve the problem if its a simple bios issue.

Either go to levono's support website and find out how to reset your cmos with the jumper, or you can call their support line.

Or if you are completely comfortable in opening your case without step by step instructions from a person or specific support page. You can open the case and simply remove the small battery, can't miss it, leave it out for a bout 30 seconds, replace it and put your rig back together and try to boot up.

If that doesn't work, the next least expensive thing you can try is to replace the battery.

Open the case again, and take the battery with you to the store and get a new one. If that doesn't work, then you'll defintely want to contact someone that knows more specifics with your model.

This should be a good place to start for more detailed troubleshooting steps.

Continous beep when I try to turn computer on??


Continuous beep indicates problem with graphics card. Please open the case and firmly place the card inside the slot.

If it is beeping with small duration RAM is at fault.

Hope ur problem will be solved.
