I went to google and it seems like the beeps can be problems for different problems in the hardware, this is what one message says,  there are lots of computer beeping answers out there: 1 short beep is your BIOS saying "HELLO I'M OK" 

Standard Original IBM POST Error Codes 

1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 
2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen 
No beep Power supply or system board problem 
Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem 
Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 
1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 
1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 
1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 
3 long beeps keyboard card 

Each BIOS company has modified these codes over the years.

Intel 31 3 beep sound solve


3 Beeps usually means a memory issue. If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Hi, i built a new computer but am having trouble getting into bios, the asus start up screen with the asus logo comes on but i cannot get the keyboard to let me into the bios and a beep sounds to tell me...


Press Del right after starting the computer to enter BIOS. A few ASUS motherboards use Ins instead.
OR Press F2 right after the computer starts up.
And try reconnecting your keyboard!!

Installation of audiophile 192


Here is a list computer beeps and what they mean.

  • No Beeps: Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals
  • One Beep: Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine
  • Two Beeps: POST/CMOS Error
  • One Long Beep, One Short Beep: Motherboard Problem
  • One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps: Video Problem
  • One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps: Video Problem
  • Three Long Beeps: Keyboard Error
  • Repeated Long Beeps: Memory Error
  • Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps: CPU Overheating


Most times the beeping is caused by a bad/loose connection somewhere or card not seated properly.
Try disconnecting and reconnecting everything again. Make sure that all the power plugs are connected properly even if you didn't mess with them. Moving things around can sometimes be enough to give you the "BEEPS". ";-}


If you are still having much beeping and no computing you can try my personal favorite.

Start first with verbal threats. Next move to a second floor window and, while you explain whats going to happen if it doesn't knock it off, open the window.

If that fails give it the pitch.
Believe it or not I have used this technique and after reassembly and repair.....No more beep.

I hope this helps but if not let me know and we will try something else.

Power supply and start up the computer


Here's the steps for troubleshooting Gateway systems that don't fully boot. It is based on BIOS beep codes which are beeps that occur when you first power the system up.

I can't seem to get my cyberacoustics to work (Speakers)


Hi, Perhaps the beeping sound you hear at start up is the internal speaker directly connected to the motherboard. If you Device Manager or your Control Panel/Sound & Audio Devices Properties/Audio tells you that nu such device is installed, what you need to do is re-install the necessary drivers. To confirm if the sound card is there/working but need drivers, go to your Device Manager, a yellow marked "!" will indicate that that component need drivers/re-installing. Post back with your motherboard brand/model that we may look for drivers or use the original motherboard CD installers. Good luck and kind regards.
