SOURCE: Toshiba Satellite A65-S1762 makes one long beep then two short when turned on

Sounds like video problem.

My wife has one of these and it died.

One file came up corrupt and then after I restored it the system would just drop power without warning.

Then would hang in safemode at an ATI sys file for the video.

It's on the mainboard. These also have built in RAM problems too.

You can try to remove any additional RAM you may have added in the bottom slot and try to boot.

My best advice is get a $20 best buy/staples 2.5" USB HDD enclosure and throw the HDD in there and toss the leftovers on Ebay with an explanation.

You'll get $100-150 for it to help buy yourself a new one.

Sell the LCD as one deal, the keyboard another, AC adapter another and so on. You'll get more that way.

I'd go Fujitsu. Toshiba used to be good but they went to **** to compete with HP/Compaq and sell at Walmart.

Gateway is also decent. The key is newer laptops run too hot and end up toast in a year or two.

Buy something a little less frantic in the GhZ dept. and it will last longer.

Pushing a laptop for gaming or 3D graphics is hardly it's best use. Manufacturers are too busy adding flashy selling points instead of practical features like lighter weight and longer battery life.

SOURCE: Toshiba wont turn on, has beeping after i press power

Check the memory modules. Test one at a time to see if any of them is damaged. If you have only one, try a borrowed chip, or test yur modules in a borrowed laptop (it doesn't have to be the same brand/model, only the chips must be the same speed).

It has a memory problem, take the laptop to your local store and ask if they will test the memory for you, if it is the problem then you will have to purchase a new memoy module.

Toshiba satellitep205d-s7438 won't boot up


You need to be more specific and tell what happens when you plug in the power cord and press the power button. There are a number of reason why a computer will not boot, but if you tell what's going on someone can help you.

Computers don't boot for basically the following reasons, 1) the power supply is bad. That means when you plug it in you don't see any lights, and when you press the power button nothing happens, you hear no fans, no beeps, no blinking lights, no hard drive spinning, no cd drive clicking and nothing appears on the lcd screen.

2) A motherboard issue, usually when this happens you will either see blinking lights or hear beeps. Those blinking lights and beeps are codes that tell the technician what is really going on.

3) Static Buildup - try removing the battery and the power cord then Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back in (leave the battery out) and Press the Power Button. If it boots up you had static buildup and can replace the battery, count your blessings and Thank The Lord cuz a dishonest repairman would have told you he had to replace the motherboard for $300

Toshiba Satellite U405-S2824 startup beep code error


The beep you hear is a BIOS Beep Code. The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and a general area to look into for it.

A short repeated beep over a long period, usually indicates a Ram Memory problem.

Remove ALL power to the notebook. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.
Suggest you remove all ram memory modules, and clean the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.

Use a pencil eraser. If using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band touch the contact pins. Reinstall the ram memory module/s.

Reinstall the Battery, then the AC adapter. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the notebook on.

Post back in a Comment as to the results.

WHEN BOOTING THE TOSHIBA SATELLITE A215-S5837 I hear two beeps and get a dark screen. I can press f1 and go into safe mode but don't know what to do next. The error message is "resource conflict...


Hello,
These beeps are error code and two short beeps during start up normally refers to RAM or memory not being detected. You can try to reseat the RAM modules or ask someone who knows how to do it. If it will still be the same, it means that the RAM is defective and consider replacing it.
Cheers!

BOot 3 beep then nothing?


Flip the unit on it's back, remove the battery, unscrew the RAM slot cover, remove the ram by pushing the two locking pieces away from the sides of the RAM. remove the RAM then re-seat it back into the slot, replace cover and replace the battery, flip unit back and attempt to boot. If you still get the beeps, note weather they are short or long, short-long-long, or short-short-long etc... it maybe a graphics problem and since most graphics cards on toshiba laptops are built onto the board you will have to replace the system board....is it under warranty? if not you maybe looking at an expensive fix.

Toshiba x200 black screen of death. One long beep, twoo short beeps. Help please.


The error codes of one long beep & 2 short beep Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.


Do you have access to bios?
If you have access to Bios, I suggest you to load optimal defaults and try booting, It must fix your issue.

If you do not have access to Bios, I suggest you to remove the recently added hardware (if any) and try booting.
If there is no recently added hardware, It-seems that Video (Mono/CGA Display Circuitry) issue, I suggest you to contact near by service center.

Toshiba Satellite® X205-S9349 bios beeping


the beep codes you are getting are for video but if the system boots and you have video im sure it is something with the ram on the video card. unfortunatly this will require a service from toshiba. these cards are intergrated and will require the motherboard to be replaced.
