You should open the service panel and to find out where does the "beeping" unit located and to remove one of the wires connected to it (the unplugged wire should be insulated). Good luck!

SOURCE: Does nothing just beeps

If its in Warranty, and doesn't work with any computer, then you might prefer to send it away to get it fixed. Here's an alternative.

It may be a problem with the power supply to the drive, the USB cable from the drive, or the electronics inside the box, or the drive itself. It's worth working from the outside inwards:

  • Try swapping the USB cable with another
  • Try a different power supply to it
If you've been able to establish that neither the power supply nor the USB cable is the problem, then the next stage may be worthwhile:
Try cracking the case open very carefully to extract the HDD, and loading it into a new case with USB outlet (will have to buy, around $30?).

I'll tell you my story: I had a LaCie external HDD (which turned out to be a nice Seagate Barracuda IDE inside) which died, light flashing, not recognised by the computer. Yours is a little different, because it is designed to switch off after a short while if it doesn't get a connection with the computer. My light just stayed red.
Anyway, I tried it on a different computer with the same result, then read LaCie website, which had an item about hard clicks and soft clicks. If the drive had hard clicks, I could say goodbye, but if the sounds were soft, the disk was probably OK. I wrote to their support people and they gave me detailed instructions for safely extracting the HDD, and what sort it was (PATA/IDE) so I could go and buy the right sort of cage to replace the old one, which I did. The new cage even came packaged with a screwdriver, as well as screws etc, so I could bolt it in myself, following the instructions. I got it all working fine within a day!

So, I'm hoping your problem is just the cage, and the HDD inside is still OK.

You'll probably need to use a flathead screwdriver to pry the case apart, here's some people who have been grappling with it.

Over to you. All the best.

SOURCE: Protection light blinks and beeping

it has been through an overload (hence the protection light) and needs its breaker to be reset (look for a poped out button and push it back in) or it needs a new fuse (replace ONLY WITH THE EXACT SAME MODEL OF FUSE or it will either blow too early or too late (or not at all) when there is a surge.

My gateway dx4860 ub33p is making 1 long continuous beep at start up not showing anything


Unplug power cable
Hold down the power button for 10 seconds
then remove power cable from the back of the computer and plug it back in.
try plug it directly to another outlet
that long continuous beep is a power issue
if you originally had it plugged into a power protector or multiplug connect it the outlet directly to get better power.

Tried to light our Paragon One gas fire - it hasn't worked and there is a continuous beeping noise


A continuous beeping sound means there is not enough power left in the batteries to light the fire. Change them, being careful to put then all in the right way.

My computer cannot boot because of long beep


beep code usually means a basic function was unable to start. A basic function might be reading memory, displaying video, or being able to send information to a hard drive. The most common problems that cause beep codes are memory and heat-related failures caused by a build-up of dust in critical cooling areas. Use the beep code tables in this document to help find what hardware component is causing the problem. This might reduce the time required to find the hardware component that needs adjusted, reseated, or replaced. WARNING: HP recommends that these steps be performed only by someone with experience in working on computer hardware. Incorrectly handling sensitive internal components can further damage the computer and can introduce the risk of personal injury. Using the correct environment for working on computers (ESD precautions and tools), use the following steps to isolate and fix the problem:
  1. Turn on the computer.
  2. Listen to the beep code and write it down. Write down the number of beeps before each pause, if the beeps are long, short, high in tone, or low in tone. You can use the other sections in this document to look up the beep code description. The beep code and its description can be used for further Internet research if needed.
  3. Note which fans are spinning, not spinning, or making strange noises. It might be possible to prevent the beep code by setting the fan speed to a higher setting in the BIOS setup utility or by cleaning the cooling fins and vents.
  4. hpweb_1-2_plus.gifhpweb_1-2_minus.gif
  5. Check the case fan and power cable.
    1. Turn off the computer by holding the power button for five seconds.
    2. Disconnect the power cord and then disconnect all external cords from the computer.
    3. Remove the side panel to open the computer.
    4. If the case fan was not spinning, make sure the case fan power cable is connected to the correct pins on the motherboard. Replace the fan if it was making excessive noise or was not spinning. If you had to plug in or replace the fan, replace the side panel, plug in the power cord and turn on the computer. If the beeps continue, continue to the next step.
  6. Disconnect the power cord and remove the side panel and perform each of the following tasks, in order, until the beeping stops. Before starting each task, unplug the power cord and remove the side panel. After completing a task, replace the side panel, connect the power cord, turn on the computer, and listen for a beep code. NOTE: If removing or disconnecting a hardware component prevents the beep code, that component is probably causing the problem. However, a failed motherboard might produce beep codes associated with a component other than the motherboard.
    1. Clean cooling components that have become clogged with dust. If beeping continues, continue to the next step.
    2. Remove a memory module. If the computer stops beeping, the memory module might be bad, is the wrong type of memory for the motherboard, or was not fully seated or connected. Reinsert the memory into the socket to see if a connection was the problem; otherwise replace the module. Remove each memory module, replacing the one that was previously removed. If beeping continues after checking all the memory modules, continue to the next step.
    3. If the computer has a graphics adapter, remove it. If the beep code changes or continues with the same beep pattern after removing the graphics adapter, the adapter might still be good. Reseat the graphics adapter into its socket and continue to the next step. If the beep code goes away, the graphics adapter might be bad. Try reseating the graphics adapter, making sure it is fully locked into the connector on the motherboard. If problems continue, replace the adapter.
    4. Remove a PCI card. If the beep code goes away, the card might be bad. Try reseating the card into its connector on the motherboard. If problems continue, replace the card. Remove each PCI card, replacing the one that was previously removed. After checking all cards, if beeping continues, continue to the next step.
    5. Disconnect hard drives and CD or DVD drive cables (IDE and ATA) from the motherboard socket. If the beep code goes away, the cable or socket is probably bad. Look for bent pins inside the IDE socket on the motherboard and straighten any bent pins. Try reseating the cables into the connectors. If problems continue, the drive itself might be bad and might need replacing. Disconnect each drive cable, replacing the one that was previously disconnected, until all have been checked. After checking all connections, if beeping continues, continue to the next step.
    6. At this point, the problem is probably the motherboard or processor. Make sure any jumpers on the motherboard have not fallen off their pins and into the case. Make sure jumpers are set correctly. Otherwise, have the computer serviced by HP or by a qualified service center.

Acer travelmate 4000 laptop Big problem


I guess I can assume that you have it plugged into the ac power, so you know its not a power problem. We also know its not a problem with the power switch since the light turns on. So that leaves, motherboard, cpu, and ram possible problems. Ram would unlikely cause such a hault. Even with no ram, I believe the computer would make horrible beeping noises. So if its a problem with the motherboard or cpu, its pretty much trash, unless you want to waste the money on ebay or some place for another cpu to try to swap.
