I am having the same problem as the poster. Basically I wastrying to connect my old hdd so I could copy some files and I don'tknow if it wasn't seated properly or what but it did not displayanything. I then powered down the computer and finally got theHDD connected to the IDE cable but when I went to turn the computerback on beep codes come on...

I remove the hdd still beeps.. I removed the ram, powered the computeron and same 5 beeps followed by silence then infinate beeping. Ihave no idea what is wrong.

How do you turn off the beaping on a Haier Clothes Dryer?

The responses here miss the issue: The beeps described by the Poster are NORMAL and signal a finished load. However, the beeps are very loud, persistent, and extremely annoying, therefore the Poster wants to DISABLE the beeps. The question is how to disable the annoying beeps.

My playstation powers on and it show the ps3 symbol but after the wave stays on and my controllers cut off

Ok here is a step by step process to solve your problem. Basically your system software has become corrupted. CAUTION! USING THIS METHOD WILL CLEAR YOUR SYSTEM OF SAVE GAMES AND ALL OTHER DATA!!
Step 1. Turn your system onto standby (Red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it. Keep holding it until it beeps a further 2 times about 5 seconds apart. On the third beep the system will return to standby.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. Again it will beep when you first press it, beep again 5 seconds later then there will be 2 quick beeps together. Let go of the power button.
Step 4. The system will boot into the recovery screen. It will ask you to connect a controller via USB and press the PS button.After you have done this it will give you a menu.
Step 5. Select option 5, "Restore PS3 system". This will erase the software on your PS3 and rewrite it. After it is done it will reboot and hopefully everything will be working again.

Hope this helps

Old comp beeping sound

well..the updates might has confused the memory allocation settings, and the beeping is telling you that the memory is not happy. Try reseating memory, and swapping it's locations. Can't hurt.
