If it's one long, continous beep that will not stop, that can mean either keyboard, power supply, or motherboard.
Get on the internet, and google "computer beep codes"
That should lead you in the right direction.

Either RAM is not fully seated or it's incompatible with your motherboard. Try reseating first. Hope this helps.

    Acer 5742g Beep at boot up

    I have a problem that looks like this one.

    At boot up, after the POST, each time the HDD led blinks, the laptop produces a loud "beep", and refuses to boot, as if this phenomenon prevented the HDD to be read.

    If I press the power button, it stops beeping. When I release it, it starts beeping again.

    If I press F8 at the beginning and then ask for a normal boot, It boots normally. Anyway, in windows, I have some strange activity, like I would continually pressing Alt+Tab. If I press Esc, it stops immediately and then all seems to work fine.

    Any clue?

    My laptop will not boot

    angela it sounds like the ram memory has a problem, try remove and replace.

    "Make sure you remove" battery first, touch something metal to remove any static
    from yourself before touching the ram.

    Acer aspire 9300. Get 3 loud beeps when trying to boot. Will not boot.

    3 beeps usually indicate a memory failure. if you have more than one memory module try powering the computer with just one of the memory modules installed.

    Loud fast beeps on boot.( Toshiba Qosimo F45 )

    Looks indeed as if the TAB key was stuck or malfunctioning. The most common cause for such behavior is a liquid spilled on the keyboard, a bit of which got between the layers of the keyboard membrane films and causes intermittent semi-short between conductive areas.
    A trace of liquid caught between plastic films is hard to get rid of, as it practically sealed and doesn't evaporate.
    If it doesn't go away, you may need to replace the keyboard, which is not very expensive fortunately,

    Gateway GT4010 boots then starts beeping and shuts off

    First check your power supply section and check your power fan that is running properly. if ok then the suspected area is your processor section. please check it if its collar fan nor running properly then clean up or change that. and the other advice is please check your processor pin which are too tiny. be careful about these.
