SOURCE: Beeping dryer

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.

Gateway M275 doesnt turn on

unplug it from the wall, remove the battery, hold the power button down for 30 seconds, then plug the power cord back up and into the laptop and press the power button, if that makes a difference, replace battery and see if it continues to run

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.

Fujitsu lifebook n5010 notebook won't reboot i let the battery run out while working. next day, turned on three loud beeps, then three loud beeps then fan runs but no display on the screen. power off,...

Okay, sounds bad.

However, take out the battery from the laptop and remove mains lead. Go and make tea! Then, drink it. Once you have complete this task.

Plug in the AC lead ONLY into the laptop and then try to power it on.

You should see lights on the Hard Disk LED or hear a beep. If you see them but nothing on the screen at all when booting then the capacitor pack has probably gone on the screen. This is not an expensive part, but you do need to know what you are doing to replace it. Think it time to give it to the workshop or ask IT bod to look at it for you.

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.
