Beeps can be: Memory error, improper connections, improper memory configurations, wrong cabling... So many things really.
We would need more information to give a better diagnoses.

I'll check the posts again in a few days..

Have a great night.

6 long beeps indicates that there is a problem with the memory, take them out, clean the contacts and the DIMM slots and reseat them.
Hopefully this will resolve the problem, if not new memory may be required

Humming noise after turning typewriter on


If that is all that happens, no lights, no beeping you probably need a power supply or a board. If there are lights and beeping we need to know what it's doing.

Dell 4400 Main power in house went off while using my computer and then went back on about an hour later. Now when I try and restart the PC, the power button light turns yellow like it is in sleep mode...


The power supply or mother board probably went out. Did any other items in the house stop working? This happened to me years ago and the electric company reimbursed me for damages.
You can try unplugging the power cord for a few minutes, then retry listen for any beeps from the computer. If it is powering on but nothing on the screen and no beeps *********** board is probably toast.

Motherboard will not post


Turn it off. Remove the AC power-cord.
Disconnect all the devices (floppy, disk-drive, CD-drive).
Remove any add-on PCI cards (modem, network, TV, 2nd video).
Remove ALL the RAM.
Reconnect the power, and turn it on.
Try to POST -- if it is not "dead", it should "beep" a few times, due to having _NO_ RAM installed.
Turn it off.
Remove the AC power-cord.
Add ONE stick of RAM.
Connect the AC power-cord.
Turn it on.
Same "beeps"? Different? No beeps?

Beeps 2 times & a warbling noise when trying to boot up - unplugging power lead & pressing ON/Off button & reconnecting power lead starts up OK - but it can be OK for several days & then repeats the p


The Cause of Problem:

The Power Buttons electrical circle sometimes just braked it by one of sensors and the result is the 2 beeps and Power Supply is in protected mode error.

The whole computer is turn off but the power button is turn on and this is the nub of the matter. Because if you want turn on the computer you can't because already turn on but just the Power button and you can't do anything.

The solution:
You need just change the Power Supply and don't do anything just the power cable put into the Power Supply after turn off computer.
Finaly change back the Power Supply.

Hard drive will not spin.


I have the same problem with the same enclosure. I found out it is the power supply problem. It worked the first time out of the box. But when the black 12V/5V power supply box heats up, if I turn it off, and on again, my hard drive won't spin up. It had buzz sounds and tried to spin. I think they use a crappy power supply that can't supply enough current during drive spin up when temperature goes up.

My solution is to unplug the whole unit from the wall when you don't use it. That give the crappy power supply time to cool down, so next time when you turn it on, it'll start from cold. This solutoin worked for my 300G Seagate drive. For my smaller WD drive, it doesn't require cold start. I guess it makes sense, as bigger drives require more current to spin up.

EMachine will not turn on.


Sounds like the power supply is faulty. Power supplies are very dangerous to try and repair, even for qualified technicians. I would also suggest not trying to plug it in or turn it on until the new power supply is in place. Faulty power supplies have been known to cause motherboards to permanently malfunction. Note: researching your issue, I came across several forum posts with complaints about emachines and their power supplies. The best way to solve this problem is to purchase a new power supply. If shopping online, www.tigerdirect.com and www.newegg.com are two places that specialize in PC hardware. A 400-watt power supply would probably more than do the trick for you. The cheapest one I found was $18.00. Make sure the power supply is compatible with your motherboard before you buy.

Motorola 580 handset not working


My handset does not connect to the base station. It flashes momentarily, but does not find the base. The base station has a humming noise when the phone line is disconnected and the talk button is depressed. Hum is also present when the phone line is reconnected. The problem was resolved by replacing the 9VDC power supply. The hum disappeared and the handset immediately connected to the base.
