Question about HP Compaq WF1907 Monitor

My computer keeps beeping when I turn it on!!!

My computer keeps beeping when I turned it on. I tried cleaning it's dust off but it still beeps. Sometimes it starts up without beeping but in a couple of minutes it will freeze and i have to reboot it. Then when i turn it back on it beeps or it turns itself back on and in a couple of minutes it freezes and it keeps going on and on. It's not the mouse or the keyboard, I have a security program so there isn't a virus. What could it be then? Is it something with my RAM, Motherboard or Hardrive? Is it overheating??
How can I check the temperatures? with a thermometer :D ?? Should I buy a fan ??? I read a couple of stories similar to mine and people say to take off the RAM and clean it. I'm don't even know where the RAM is located? and How should i clean it? With what?
Please Help

    A few things I would do, take the RAM out and reseat it back into its slots one at a time and turn on the power one at a time to see if you get video back. Also where the CPU is, you need to take out the heatsink and then after that there should be a lever that you pull up so you can take out the CPU and then reseat that. Then go ahead and turn on the computer and see if you get video then. Let me know how that goes and I'll help you further.

The most important thing when working on a PC is to remove the power cord. As there will be voltage on the motherboard. Some motherboards have an LED (light) wait till it goes out. The memory are long narrow boards that sit in slots with levers on either end that when pushed down release these boards. If you have two they will be located in slot 1 and 2. Remove both and put the one in 2 in slot 1 and then try to boot your machine. If you have only one board remove it and try rebooting and listen to the beep code as this will change according to the error. Beep codes should be available on the manifactures site of the motherboard but be specific with the type of model which is on the motherboard MSI GIGABYTE etc.

Thy to identify RAM, remove it and clean the contacts with a rubber (the same you use to erase the pencil marks).

Put the RAM again and try to boot.


Another problem can be the temperature...
Remove the fan (and clean it)
Remove the heatsink (and clean it)
Put new thermal compound

check your temperature in your BIOS

Emachine beep codes


You may have a memory problem, Turn the computer off and remove the side panel to expose the motherboard, In there you will find the memory modules and slots. Unclip the memory and clean the brass contacts and the slots themselves free of any dust, then reseat the memory one at a time turning the computer on to see if you get a post/splash screen, it could just be a case of a build up of dust and there will be nothing wrong when you have cleaned the dust away and reseated the memory.

The memory looks like this >>>>>>>

So I have a Emachine t2984 model... It was working perfectly till out of nowhere I heard two beeping sounds coming out the computer then CPU shut completely off. So I went to tried to turn it back on but...

you have done the right thing by cleaning the dust from your computers fans you should continue cleaning the dust from your computer as dust will cause static which can cause a computer lots of unforseen problems
the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive make sure the connections are secure including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your
((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps keep up the good work

Well, I replaced the batteries because the smoke detector was beeping, and it's still beeping even after the batteries were replaced.

In addition to changing the batteries, make sure they are turned the correct way to get proper polarity. Also, clean the unit using canned compressed air with the straw nozzle (like you clean your computer with). The sensor may be clogged with dust and dirt. Keep the canned compressed air as upright as possible when blowing out the detector.

When I start my computer its only says bip bip bip


Three beeps indicates that there is a memory error. Take the system memory from the motherboard and clean the brass contacts on the memory and also clean slots that the memory clips into. Make sure you clean all of the dust away from them.

Put the memory back into the slots and try turning the computer on. If you have more than one memory module put them back one by one turning the computer on after each try.
If it still won't switch on and you get the beeps you will be looking at new memory for the computer.

My computer tower wont stop beeping

Re-seat the memory.. more than likely they have unseated themselves during the dust cleaning. Beeping is usually caused by memory.. Beeps are usually a series like Morris code long..short beeps.. if re-seating the memory doesn't work, try swapping and removing different sticks and differnet locations on the motherboard, most motherboards have 2-4 memory banks or known as dimm slots.

When it turns on it beeps several times and stops for a moment and then starts beeping again nothing comes up on the screen

By the way regarding this issue of beeping this is the RAM problem. Open your IBM unit and check the RAM maybe the RAM are clogged by dust. You need to clean the RAM, after you clean the RAM clean also the RAM socket. Insert the RAM back to the unit and try to turn it on if there will be a beeping problem. If the problem still occur try to use another RAM to diagnose if the RAM is faulty.

Acer aspire 9300 black screen (display adapter)

I have been fixing computers that has long beeps and short ones. It is usually attributed to memory problem connection. Open the memory compartment at the back of the PC then detach the memory card. Clean with cloth softly enough not to destroy the circuit board or a pencil eraser to clean-up dust that caused the connection blockade. Reconnect after cleaning.

Tower Beeping

As I can see the problem is not monitor but your PC if computer chasis beeping, depends on number of beeps the problem can be VGA card one long beep and 3 short or RAM if it beeping one by one short beep and finaly CPU if it continuosly beeps like police sirene. If beeps are pointing to VGA or RAM you must open computer chasis and plug out VGA and RAM and clean dust out of slots and of VGA card and RAM as well with painbrush and vacum cleaner and plug them back.
Good luck!
