Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RX511 PC Desktop
Most times I'm running two or more programs my computer emits a continuous bleep while the power light flashes. Occasionally the bleeping stops but the light continues to flash. The fan is working and is operating OK. The back of the machine is warm-hot but there's no overheating smell and the in all other respects the computer works fine. Any ideas?
If working OK, probably means that the temperature alarm goes off because is getting hot the PC. I suggest to check why is that happening. All fans working OK? is the CMOS temperature alarm set too low? check your motherboard instructions booklet- It will tell you what the beeps mean probably in the last pages. Good luck

Blank screen and the power LED flashes Red five times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and the computer beeps five times. (Beeps stop after fifth iteration but LEDs continue flashing.)
Cause Pre-video memory error.
1. Reseat DIMMs. Power on the system.
2. Replace DIMMs one at a time to isolate the faulty module.
3. Replace third-party memory with HP memory.
4. Replace the system board.
