One long beep and two short beeps mean faulty video adapter.

If you are using a card, like a PCI or AGP video adapter then remove and put back the card in slot.

If you have a motherboard, then the video chipset on motherboard had gone, buy an agp video adapter and insert it in the slot inside your computer to fix the problem.

below an example of PCI and AGP video card:

MSI G4MX4000-T64 64 MB Graphics Card

HP Intel DVI AGP digital display card

ATI Rage 128 Pro 32 MB PCI Graphics Card

1 long beep, 2 short beeps

suggests hat for Asus systems, 1 long beep, two short beeps is characteristic of a RAM fault. The video card does not determine the beeps, it is the system BIOS of your computer which determines the beep codes (and what the fault is of course)
If your computer is not an ASUS, but some other brand but with an ASUS video card the beep code may mean something different.

I hear beeping tone in my cpu when i plug it


When the computer makes those funny sound via the system speaker, it's not doing it because it wants to be heard. The computer is trying to talk to the operator/technician and tell them what's wrong.


So here are some codes to give you an idea of what might be wrong with your PC.

Ok i received my new pc yesterday and installed windows vista etc, it was working great. This morning i woke up and turned my computer on and i heard 3 short beeps which were continuous and never stopped,...


3-3 is either video card or memory related.  Try to reseat your video card and see if that helps.  If nothing still, try to reseat the RAM.  If that doesn't work, try another video card.  If that doesn't work, try different memory.  If all that doesn't work, let me know and I will see what else I can do to help you out.  But from my experience, it is almost always RAM related.

Beaping Sounds When turning PC on


Hello,
These beeps sound exactly like that of the RAM. If you are not too skeptical about going inside your PC, you can simply remove the RAM and reseat it back firmly. Sometimes this happens that the memory loses good connectivity and would just need a reseat.

Thanks,
Lolita

5 beeps and no display


5 beeps is processor(cpu) failure

are they long? short?

Try another processor on the computer and see if it works.
do you get the same beeps if you place the old card back in?

Whats the brand and model of the motherboard?

its reads between the cpu and memory and also between the expansion slots, and possibly on top of a heatsink

let me know


Thanks,
Ekse

Computer beeps 3 time when turned on.


normally 3 beeps (might be one long and two short) means it's the video card, try another slot if possible.

If no other slot is available, then clean the contacts off the graphics card with a #2 pencil eraser, taking care not to touch the contacts afterward, and then re-insert the card.

if still nothing, try another video card.
