It may be your motherboard that is failing. Your LEDs and fans turn on but do you see any lights on your motherboard, or do any of the fans on the CPU start running?

SOURCE: ASRock K7S41 / K7S41GX, sound 3 Beeps 3 times, then power off automatically

I had 3 beeps, pause, 3beeps, pause and so on.

Defective SMD transistor near the ATX power connector. Original is a 2SB1202 (marking B1202).
I bought a 2SB1203 which is stronger and soldered it in. The K7S41GX board runs as fresh as from the dealer.

Remove the battery. Start the computer on AC power only. Computer should start up OK. This is a sign that the battery has had it. A new battery might be needed.

Samsung r519 not booting, black screen but working


Plug in an external monitor. If you get display then either the screen is bad or the inverter.

If you get nothing, try removing the memory and booting the computer. If you get BIOS and it starts beeping one or more of the memory modules is bad. If you still get nothing then you will want to replace the motherboard.

Gateway GM5442 PC Desktop Won't Boot!


3 BEEPS -RAM

Guest Posts: n/a 01-24-2005 We had a power failure in the office this weekend. All the systems are back
up and running fine, except for the receptionists. It's a Gateway
Professional Series. P4 1.3 Ghz. It is giving me three beeps. No boot up
screen and no video source (monitor light stays yellow instead of turning
green). I looked up the beep code and it says three beeps means the ram
needs reseated. Which I have done several times. Also, I have just put in
one stick in difference seats. I have also reseated all the cards at least
three times. I have switched the jumper to try to boot into setup mode.
Nothing there either. Popped out the cmos battery and put it back in. No
good either.

Has all the ram been fried? The fan on the cpu is still spinning. The cd-rom
ejects. I can't hear the hard drive spinning. I guess I can swap the hard
drive for a different one.

Anything I'm missing? YEP

If you get no display at all, it could be failed memory.
Find and open the memory slot, remove and reinstall whatever memory module you find and retry it.
Many systems I've seen will do absolutely nothing if memory is faulty; they do not give any POST beeps, displays or start to read from the hard drive.
The hard drive will spin up when power is applied but will not start their own self-test or look for the boot sector if bad memory is in play.
Good luck-

Turns on, no bios no screen, just beep.


Now the question is, when the computer first starts up and you hear the beep, that is where it will tell you what your problem is depending on the beep you get.

One Long and one Short Beep = Motherboard issue
One Long and Two Short Beeps = Video (Mono/CGA Display Circuitry) issue
One Long and Three Short Beeps = Video (EGA) Display Circuitry
Three Long Beeps = Keyboard error
One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display = Video Display Circuitry

If it is the last one, then try doing the following.

1. Disconnect external devices = Unplug everything from the back of the computer and then restart it. If it starts up, then it is one of the peripherals that is plugged in. You will then need to turn off the computer and gradually plug each one in and turn the PC back on to see if the peripheral is the problem. If that isn't the problem, the proceed to #2.

2. Cable check = With the computer shut down, make sure all the cables within the PC are attached properly. Once you finish doing that, turn on the PC and that isn't the cause, continue on...

3. Disconnect all expansion cards = Sometimes another expansion card can become loose and cause various amounts of issues. Remove each expansion card (clean them if necessary of dust) and replace them. Turn on your PC. If it doesn't start move to the next step.

4. Disconnect all drives = disconnect the data cables from the CD-ROM, hard drive, and floppy drive from the motherboard (make sure to mark them so you remember where they plugged into). This will either remedy the situation or you will see an error when you reconnect each device one at a time to determine which device/cable is causing the issue.

5. Remove the RAM = Loose or bad RAM can cause PC's to not boot or boot incorrectly. Remove each stick and replace them one by one alone in each memory slot. If the PC boots up in each slot, then your golden, but if a slot is defective, then your motherboard is damaged in that slot. You can still use the other slots as long as you use the defective one. If a stick of RAM doesn't allow your computer to boot up, its quite possible that stick of RAM is defective and will need to be replaced. But make sure you try out all the other options before throwing away a stick merely because the PC doesn't boot. A faulty stick can be the problem, but if the problem lies elsewhere, you may be throwing away a good stick of memory thinking it may be bad.

6. Disconnect and reconnect the CPU = Most CPU's are easy to remove, but if you aren't familiar with it. Read your manual on how to remove the CPU. Once you remove it and re-seat the CPU, reboot your PC.

7. If after you have tried all the previous steps and your PC still doesn't boot, then it is most likely that your motherboard, CPU, RAM, or power supply is defective and must be replaced. If you are unfamiliar with fixing the problem (or have never built your own PC) you can opt to have someone repair it or you can start with the cheapest option of purchasing a single stick of new memory and see if the memory was indeed the original problem. If the PC still does not boot with new memory, then it is most likely your motherboard, CPU, or power supply that is dire straights.

Laptop keeps beeping and not turning on


I think you may mean the Hard Disk light not floppy, although, if you have a floppy disc drive, check there's no floppy disc in it as it will stop the boot up. But if it's not the floppy, and the hard disc drive light stays on, possibly the hard drive is faulty, maybe damaged sectors. The other maybe is a possible memory fault, although the beep codes can only be identified if you know the motherboard make. Your rating are important.
