Question about E-Machines M5312 Notebook

1 Answer

One long beep and two short beeps

I think that means I have a video error like something's wrong with the video card or motherboard. I just cleaned the fan, today, and it was working fine until the computer seemed to go into suspend. When I returned, I pressed the power button without thinking, and the blinking power light became solid; but there was no video. The buttons did nothing, and I couldn't use secure shell (ssh) to restart it. (couldn't access the port) So I held the power button until it cut off, and then, cut it back on; but it was the same. So I powered it off again and left it for an hour or so, and came back; and then, it was beeping. (one long beep and two short beeps)

I believe that is a Pheonix bios and the beep code you gave indicates motherboard problems.

Hi lvadim1993,
In other word your PC works intermittently. Here is what you have to do. Check and remove the processor cooling fan and heat sink clean the cooling fan and heat sink. If you have a thermal compound remove the old thermal compound and put a little amount at the center of the heat sink. Reinstall it back the processor cooling fan and heat sink and make sure It install properly even and snag tight. re plug in the cooling fan connector to the motherboard. If you have a video card remove and clean the video card connector and the cooling fan and heat sink with air blower same also to the memory card. Use the air blower to clean the motherboard and the entire internal of the PC. Reinstall the video card and the memory card and make sure that they are install properly. replug in the video cable and the pc power cord and turn on the PC. this will work. the computer is just over heating. I hope that this information will help you solve the problem.

Loud Whining Noise from Motherboard on Startup


Whining noise is something in motion or moving.Does the graphics card have a onboard fan?Is it clean and free moving.

How about the processor fan? clean,free from wires or anything hitting it.?

Disconnect hard drive and see if you get the sound.

Continuous beep


This is most likely a memory error. You didn't say if you've done any work inside the computer but if you have double check that the ram is seated correctly.

You bios is award and these are the beep codes:

Beep code brief:
1 Long Beep: Memory problem
1 Long Beep and 2 Short Beeps: Video error
Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem
Any other beep pattern: Most likely Memory problem

1 long Beep: Memory problem
Something is wrong with the memory installed. Check out the troubleshooting memory problems FAQ for details. Note that there could also be something wrong with just accessing the memory (ie the motherboard has a problem).

1 long beep, then 2 Short Beeps: Video error
The motherboard is not able to access the video card for some reason. Either the video card is not working, it's memory is not accessable, or it's BIOS may be corrupt. This error code could also mean something is wrong with the motherboard.

Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem
This is a tricky situation... likely the problem is either memory or the video. This can also be found when the motherboard is faulty.

Motherboar fail, no video, power supply ok help


Hello,
Firstly, remove the RAM and turn on the system, if you hear the beep sound continuously that means everything is perfect expect RAM.
Clean the track of RAM at both sides by pencil eraser completely.
Also clean the port of RAM.

Secondly reinstall the CPU with CPU FAN and also clean the FAN.

Third one is that remove all the add-on's card and than turn on the system.

PC has died !! I've disconnected all the HDDs, ROM, RAM, Video Cards and still dead. Power light comes on, CPU fan starts up, NO LIGHTS anywhere on the motherboard, two short beeps, followed by third beep....


based on your information the two beeps is an indication that you motherboard is alive and looking for a memory. is the video integrated or you use a separate video card? i think this has something to do with your video. if your video is integrated try putting in a video card

No boot on start up all fans start but no video


I had same problem!
I figured there was something wrong with my memory because that is what the manual says the constant beeps mean.
I bought a new PNY memory stick 1 gb DDR and got the same beeps when i put it in.
So being totally disappointed I tried putting the Stick in the #3 DIMM. I booted up and IT WORKED!
I have not called tech support or tried both 1 & 3 DIMM together but I will try after I set up the rest of my computer.
