Iturn on my desktop and it just keeps beeping nothing on monitor?

Pull your ram sticks out, leaving only one in place (doesn't matter which spot it's in). If beeping stops and computer boots, you found it. Continue replacing ram sticks until beep returns, and you've found the bad stick.
On the suspect ram stick, try this. Take the eraser side of a pencil, and work the eraser up/down, back/forth on the gold contacts of the ram. What you're trying to do is to clean the contacts with the eraser (stop laughing, it works!).
Try that ram again, if the beeping stops you've saved a ram stick. If not, I'm afraid it's shot.

Laptop computer will not power up. using power cord and keeps beeping three times every time when powering up.cleaned ram contacts and reseated these. still no change!

Suggest Anti-Static Procedures need to be followed, laptop opened up, and cooling system cleaned.

Also suggest replacing Thermal Paste on Processor, and Thermal Pad on graphics chipset. (Piece of small copper sheet would be better)

Just load operating system that your used previously. Because that was the compatible system that they used.

Steady beeps on phoneix bios ecs board

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.

make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated

on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) 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 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

The Hard Drive keeps making a bleeping noise and it is not letting me acces it, what could the possible problem be?

you need to know computer BIOS to know message from beeping code. when u know the BIOS product then listen the beep (short or long, how many beep, etc). after u recognize the beep pattern, try to 'google' it with your BIOS product and beep status. or u can reply from this answer, maybe i can help.
tips: a lot of problem that computer cannot run and makes beep sound is that RAM not correctly installed, try remove it and put it in again in another RAM slot. if u use external VGA, try to remove it and put it in again.
hope this useful, regards.

Having installed this motherboard in the case and connected up I get a series of fast beeps a few seconds after power-up. I have immediately powered down. What is causing this problem? There is nothing in...

In your case, it is a memory problem. It's either one of your RAM has problem if you have 2 slot RAM. Please ensure that you have the right RAM for your board. You can also clean the contacts of your RAM by using eraser.
Below are the most common beep code that being adopted to most BIOS for reporting.
  • short beep - Normal POST(system is OK)
  • Steady short beeps - power supply problem
  • long continuous beep - memory failure
  • Steady long beeps - power supply problem
  • 1 long, 2 short beeps - video card problem

Won't boot, has a steady beep sound.

Beep codes denote that there may be problem with your RAM modules inside your computer Cabinet. Remove the cabinet, remove the RAM modules from the slot, clean the dust particles present and replace the RAM back to the slot properly and try restarting your system. Try 5 continuous attempts like this and at any one your system may come alive. The Beep codes may vary among different motherboard vendors. So refer to your system motherboard manual and there the interpretation for different kinds of beep code will be provided.

I hope this is helpful and solves your problem,

Tower Beeping

As I can see the problem is not monitor but your PC if computer chasis beeping, depends on number of beeps the problem can be VGA card one long beep and 3 short or RAM if it beeping one by one short beep and finaly CPU if it continuosly beeps like police sirene. If beeps are pointing to VGA or RAM you must open computer chasis and plug out VGA and RAM and clean dust out of slots and of VGA card and RAM as well with painbrush and vacum cleaner and plug them back.
Good luck!
