Re: computer turns off then on after first boot
2 beeps is memory issues. Either your RAM is bad or the Video card is bad. If you are getting the BSOD, blue screen of death, then I would take out all your RAM and start it up with a single stick, so you can find out what stick is bad. If you only have 1 stick, replace it. I say to do the memory first, because it is the cheaper fix.

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. the grrr is the sound its not getting enough power test your PSU power supply unit or replace it if the fan is not working the PSU is faulty One bad/faulty lead can cause a computer with lots of problems replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATAthe ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ? hope this helps
there is problem with your Ram ,if you have another ram then you can try to change it and then check
Otherwise you can boot your computer with the help of windows cd and see if your pc restarts or not.for this just put windows cd in cd rom and go to bios by pressing F12 on start and under advanced settings change boot priority to cd as first option and then restart and follow the on screen instructions
if Pc restarts again with a beep noise,then change the ram and it will be fine
probably it is your operating system. try to recover your windows by using the recovery disc that came out with your e machine or find another widows to install but do not format the hard disk rather replace the existing one.
if you can't make it, please send me an email at email@example.com then i will help you step by step.
That is probably your ram. If you have more then 1 stick remove them and install one at a time in slot 1. If that isn't it you need to count the beep and duration of the beeps. I can then look up the codes. I will also need to know your bios manufacture.
These sounds are known as BIOS beep codes. They indicate an error with your system. Traditionally, 1 long and 1 short indicates a system board problem. If you google bios beep codes, you will be able to find the codes that relate to your Bios, or motherboard. Backup your files. Your computer is trying to tell you something.
I think there is a problem with the pin connection of the RAM. Remove the RAM again, then clean the pin with the contact cleaner spray then plug in again. do same thing with the CPU/processor if necessary. if you got One short beep when boot windows the problem haven't from hardware but on your system. try to run scandisk, disk cleanup, or press F8 while booting to go into "safe mode". Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.
The beeps you hear are probably BIOS error beep codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the BIOS communicates what type of error is occurring during the initial stages of the start up process. If you can tell me the manufacturer and model number of the board AND the sequence and length of the beeps I can point you in the direction to go.
