Hi there.
The continuous beeping means that there is a problem with the memory, take the system memory out and clean the brass contacts, then reseat the memory and try to boot the PC up again.
The memory is located behind a panel underneath the laptop like this >>>>>> beeps on start up - e1bc638.jpeg.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I changed the power supply on my acer aspire e700 and it beeps continuosly non stop with no picture on screen, the last power supply blew. it had a graphics card when i bought it but it stopped working so...


You may have more problems than just he power supply from when the old power supply went out. The mainboard could be bad.

Make sure it's unplugged from power from the wall, then check that the memory is seated correctly. Check for anything else that may be out of place or not fully connected.

There are also different beep codes for different errors. They've mostly been standardized, but may vary by mainboard as well. Here's a link to common POST beep codes and their meanings:

I have dh55tc, i7 860, 4gb transcend ram, xfx hd 5770, tagan stonerock -u37 600w psu, Its assembled in March 2010 & ran fine for 5 months. One day while watching movie it suddenly froze, i restarted...


3 beeps means that it's a RAM fault. If your memory worked just fine in another pc then it's the fault of the memory controller of the chipset on the motherboard - either the memory slot is loose (move the stick in the slot and try again) or the chipset itself is failing. That can't be fixed, the mobo is dead, replace it.

My toshiba satelite laptop beeps continuosly, non-stop


First, check the memory (RAM) of your computer. remove and put it back in. Also checkif therre is only one or two memory sticks in, so you can check on both. It should work fine, and if not, try replacing the memory of your laptop.

When i turn the computer on it starts then


SOS beeps are post codes the computer sends to alert you of problems detected during start up.

The beeps can mean anything from over heating to bad memory detected. Find out what your Motherboard bio is and check Here. This has a handy beep code listing for many of the common mother boards.
Good luck!
Hope this helps!
