Sounds like the motherboard trying to give you an error code. search beep codes for the type of motherboard you have and then you will get a possible cause of the interruption.

my friend once gave me an old ibm that had a beeping sound preventing it from booting. i googled ibm beep codes and learned that it was a video card error. i swapped the video card and problem solved

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?

Have Gateway M6866 Laptop. Will not boot. when power button is pressed. you hear a fan start power light comes on, harddrive light and a few others comes on for 2 seconds then goes off. screen is always...


If it never posts anything to the screen then more than likely you've got a video card issue. It could be the memory also.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Battery, Remove the cover that houses the memory on the bottom of the laptop then remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Computer beeps and fails to start


If there was recent hardware added to it or RAM then try removing it and boot up. You can try resetting the RAM. You can also check all cables and power within the case to make sure everything is connected properly. Listen for the fan on the PC, if the fan doesn't start up then it could be an overheated mother board. Beeps can mean a number of different things. If there's no error on the screen then it probably isn't getting further then the BIOS. I hope that helps.

Screen


According to the support website, it could either a memory (DIMM) or motherboard (System board) problem. See beep codes and what them mean here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-46018.html

First thing to do would be to remove the memory and put it back in (called 'reseating') to make sure there is a firm connection to the motherboard. Find out how to do this for your particular model here: Click here. If you have two memory modules installed and the remove/reseating action did not stop the beeping, try removing just one and attempt to boot the system.
  • If you get the same beeps again, remove the one you have installed and replace with the one you took out - try booting.
  • If you don't get the same beeping and you can then boot in to windows, then you've identified the bad memory module. Replace it.
If you still get the same beep code, then it sound like it's your motherboard that needs to be replaced.

Laptop keeps beeping and not turning on


I think you may mean the Hard Disk light not floppy, although, if you have a floppy disc drive, check there's no floppy disc in it as it will stop the boot up. But if it's not the floppy, and the hard disc drive light stays on, possibly the hard drive is faulty, maybe damaged sectors. The other maybe is a possible memory fault, although the beep codes can only be identified if you know the motherboard make. Your rating are important.
