Take the ram back out of the computer that you just installed and see if you have the same problem. If you do, a board or plug must have came loose when you were inside the unit. If the problem clears up, the ram you are trying to use is bad or not compatible with your computer. All ram is not alike. Good Luck

What do the beeps codes i am getting mean? 1 short followed by 1 long.


Beep codes don't cause or signify damage, they are just telling you something is wrong. In your case, I would say the RAM is incorrectly seated or in the wrong slots.

2 beeps Memory (RAM) not detected

Remove the RAM and press it HARD until it locks in place. Do a visual check that the indent is against the mounting.

Beeps:1 long 8 short pause 2 short pause 1 short


The first couple of beeps ( 1 long 8 short) points to graphics problems. Check the graphics card is seated firmly. If this fails, remove the graphics card and plug the monitor into the onboard graphics slot

If you have only the onboard graphics slot, try seeing if a graphics card, plugged into the motherboard ( may be agp or pcie fitting) solves the problem

The second pair of beeps ( 2 and 1) sounds like ram issues, if they are still there after you solve the graphics problem, try removing one ram module at a time and if it boots ok with that module removed, it is likely to be a faulty stick of ram

THE RED LIGHT IS ON AND BEEPS EVERY MINUTE


What motherboard do you have? If you don't know, provice make and model of your system and maybe we can find out that way. Is it one long beep? Are there any other beeps and/or a sequence. A good place to start and alot of times, depending on your bios, 1 to 3 beeps means a problem with the RAM(memory). If you have more than 1 stick, you can pull them out, restart and if the beep is the same, you've probably found your culprit. You can then insert one at a time in one of your slots, then restart. If this works, you've found a good stick. If not, try another slot and restart, etc. Try all sticks in all slots.

My compaq persario sr1000 power is on the fan is on. but it beeps with a short beep and keep on. beeps pause and beeps again all with the power on but no picture on the moniter


Hello,
The beeping you are hearing is a beep code. Since their is no visual image a specific series of beeps is played and repeated to help pinpoint the problem. The beep you are describing, and it is hard for me to know for sure without hearing it is, sounds like a problem with your RAM.

First, try reseating the RAM. If you have multiple sticks of RAM remove them and reinsert them. To remove the RAM, push the tabs on both ends down and remove the stick of RAM.

Reinstall them by pushing the RAM firmly into the slot until the tabs click in place.

Try booting up again. If the same beep happens try removing all of the RAM except for 1 stick (if you have multiple sticks).

If you do not have multiple sticks, you may want purchase or borrow a stick of RAM to test your machine with to determine if your RAM is faulty.

Please let me know if I can further assist you.

Regards,
KYTechnology

How can i fix my IBM ThinkPad T22 2647. it produce 3 simultaniuos beep sounds lcd is black out.


This is a list of ThinkPad Beep codes.
It appears you have a memory or motherboard problem, most likely a RAM problem. Try reseating the RAM modules, if this doesn't work, then remove the RAM and take them to your friendly computer repair shop to get them to test the RAM modules for you. If the RAM is faulty them replace.

Hi John. If you already swaped the Memory, it's the video card. I'm giving you what the beep means according to the different types of BIOS, because basically Ascent is a clone PC. I hope it helps.
(you will have to open the computer to see the BIOS type.)

2 short beeps -- non-fatal error.
1 beep corto -- OK.

BIOS AMI

1 short beep -- Memory error.
2 short beeps -- ECC error.
3 short beeps -- Memory error.
4 short beeps -- change atery
5 beeps cortos -- bad processor.
6 beeps cortos -- bad keyboard.
7 beeps cortos -- video memory bad.
8 beeps cortos -- video bad.
BIOS PHOENIX

1-1-2 beeps -- Problem with cpu/motherboard.
1-1-3 beeps -- Cmos issue.
3-4-1 beeps -- Video issue.

BIOS IBM

1 short beep -- Post normal, ok!.
2 short beeps -- POST error, will show on screen.
NO beep -- CPU issue or Expansion card issue
1 long and 1 short -- motherboard error.
1 long and 2 shorts -- Video issue.
1 long and 3 shorts --EGA video issue.

Computer will not start


It all depends how many beeps there were.
From http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12253_div/12253_div.HTML
Diagnostic LED Explanation Table Number of 1-second red LED blinks followed by 2-second pause, then repeats:
2-processor thermal protection activated
3-processor not installed
4-power supply failure
5-memory error
6-video error
7-PCA failure (ROM detected failure prior to video)
8-invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode

I have only really come across 4 beeps = order new Power Supply or 5 Beeps = reseat the memory and hope it works

Oli

When starting up the computer, I get 5 short beeps then continous


These beeps seem to show that your system did not detect any RAM (memory) modules connected to it. Please check.

  1. Open the CPU case (turn the PC off first)
  2. Remove the RAMs from the slot.
  3. Turn ON your computer without the RAMs installed. Then observe if it gives the same beeps. If it is the same, then the RAMs might fail to register.
  4. Try to plug in carefully the RAMs in place. If you have 2 RAM modules, try to test 1 RAM at a time to see if the combination of the 2 mess up your system.

Beaping Sounds When turning PC on


Hello,
These beeps sound exactly like that of the RAM. If you are not too skeptical about going inside your PC, you can simply remove the RAM and reseat it back firmly. Sometimes this happens that the memory loses good connectivity and would just need a reseat.

Thanks,
Lolita
