Re: Wont even load onto bios.

You could be right but it's hard defining beeps but i would reseat your memory and graphics card as 1 long and 3 short beeps refers mainly to graphics

My computer wont turn on lights up but wont turn on

What did you do in bios ?
You might have to go back into bios and set fail safe or optimized defaults.

Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart. Hope this helps.

Computer beeps every 30 seconds

It is car brakes. Turn that game off.


BIOS speaker is broken, and you hear high pitched beeps?

CPU temperature in normal............
What is the CPU, and what is the temp? Hey, I gotta know so we are on the same page here, lol!

Those repeated high pitch BIOS Beep Codes indicate a CPU problem.
I would remove the Heatsink/Fan combo, and replace the Thermal Paste.
(Following Anti-Static Precautions, and cleaning the CPU, and Heatsink, of course)

Also make sure the Heatsink is sitting flat.
Yes, I know what you stated about Speecy, and Core Temp, but I would try it anyway.

Still no?
CPU is sounding Taps, and telling you goodbye.

Computer was working its a alienware computer with p4t533-c motherboard now it comes on but when you power it on theres usual a beep then it loads but now it wont beep at all and dnt load nothing not even...

toddzr2 - whenever I have a problem like this, you need to unplug all your peripherals, i.e. take out your video card, unplug your hard drive, CD/DVD, etc. Power up, you should get some beeping b/c the video card is out. Power down, reinsert your video card, power back up. See if you can get to your BIOS screen. It's possible that something may have shorted out, i.e. video card, or other peripheral. Don't be afraid to remove the memory as well but make sure you're touching the case to keep yourself grounded and minimize any static discharges.

Hi mine wont show screen at all! i reset ram no help. i turn it on no screen n after about 20 secs it has one long beep?? i cant tell if its loading or not!

the long beep indicates faulty ram oir graphics card, i would say ram, you also need to reset the bios, via the cmos jumper or battery, continuous long beep is a dram error, so the ram is faulty, get some new ram and make sure its specs match the computer

1 short beep and 1 long beep when power button is pressed.

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.

Pc Seems to be dead wont load bios post moust doesnt work or keyboard or monitor

I have the same problem, the CPU fan spins, keyboard lights blink, no start up screen, or bios.
But, when I push a few times on the pc reset button, then the CPU fan is becoming still, the keyboard light are out and I can start the computer again in a normal way.
Can this one be a temporally solution for you too? Do you have any suggestion about?
I guess it can be an electricity dysfunction of a wrong fixed cable.

I screwed up the MB BIOS and CMOS

well we have to reset your BIOS. you have to remove the CR2032 flat battery(the silver and circle shape thing) on the motherboard and put it back just exactly before you removed it then you would be just fine that if the problem is on the BIOS setup..i need to know how many beeps you can hear when you power on the PC.?

Wont boot

seems contagious mine did the same thing!not sure how helpful this will be but the bios handles the starting up part and if it's corrupt then that wont happen.If you can get the bios flash that you need onto a floppy then that might help at the moment I'm waiting for a new bios chip.Did you receive any errors at all ?awdflash.exe? insert disc etc ?
