    I have not done anything so far. The computer at first was fine. Then it started to beep like every 10 seconds. I tried to shut it down and it took forever to shut down. Everytime after that it turned on but would continue that beeping 10 seconds or so. short beeps. Then i would turn off and then try to restart and it would stay on for about 30 seconds then shut off I tried to charged it for a few hours now it will not turn on at all!

    You all send me information that is too hard to understand. Acronyms? What do they mean? Help me Please in plain ENGLISH IF YOU WILL!

This can be a problem with the RAM or the memory of the computer, so first thing to do here is to shut down the computer and open the CPU and unplug/replug the RAM on the slot and then turn the power on and if still the same problem, you may need to remove the processor and RAM and then clean them....

Hi there

As I understand it, your computer doesn't turn on anymore.

Are the beeps, as in your initial message, still sounding? If so, how many beeps does it make together and what pattern (such as 2 short beeps and one long beep, for example), and does it repeat after 10 seconds? Kindly let me know the beep pattern.

I also read your reply to another expert where you said "NOW IT WILL NOT STAY ON!". What was their advice which now made your system turn off?

Please let me know the above so I can help.

Thank you

Maybe some part failed or lost contact with the motherboard.
Try first unplugging the power cable for ten minutes.
If it restarts beeping it can be the RAM, the Video card, the CPU, fried BIOS, several other things, or a broken switch in the cabinet.
It can also beep because the computer is restarting by itself continuously, in that case you will hear the start beep.
If it is the motherboard, tell me the model and how many times beeps.
If it is system restarting continuously, use recovery disk or Windows setup disk and try to see if you can reinstall the system. If the computer does not complete the initial POST test, try going to CMOS settings, and reset BIOS to default settings. If it does not open BIOS, remove CMOS coin battery from motherboard and put it back, to reset BIOS. Do this with power unplugged.
If that does not work, try starting the Motherboard with a minimal set of parts, only RAM, CPU, Heathsink, PSU. No disks.
Remember that there is always risk of damage working on the motherboard. Always keep power unplugged and try not to touch circuits and contacts.
If it still does not start , then the motherboard is fried.

I think one of your RAM's have got corrupted or the power supply, i.e. the SMPS is not able to supply all the correct voltages. Try replacing the SMPS with a working one of the same capacity and check the RAM sticks too. If its burnt then it can be detected by the naked eye. So replace that RAM and try starting up with the working SMPS. If it functions properly, then replace the SMPS with the original one and try start-up. If the PC starts beeping again, immediately switch it off and replace the SMPS with a new one. However if all the above fail, then you got to check the processor too................................sodeep

Try to start to the system in safe mode to check if this will resolve the problem.Safe mode is available to PS3 system software version 2.60 or later. To do the safe mode follow these steps:
  1. Verify that the power indicator on the PS3 system is solid red, and then turn off the MAIN POWER switch.
  2. Turn on the MAIN POWER switch, then touch and hold the power button.
  3. Keep touching the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.
  4. After 10 seconds, you will hear another short beep and the system will shut down (release the button at this point).
  5. Touch and hold the power button again.
  6. Continue touching the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.
  7. Release the button when two short beeps are emitted after 7 seconds.
  8. As instructed by the on-screen message, press the PS button to start up in safe mode

Tip

Fix the 80010514 error on your PS3


If your Play Station 3 (PS3) gets the 80010514 error somewhere, you can try this to resolve the problem:

1. Make sure that the power indicator on the Play Station 3 system is solid red. To do this, press and hold the power button until the PS3 beeps and the light blinks. Once the light has turned solid red, turn the power switch in the back off.

2. Turn the switch back on, then press and hold the power button.

3. Keep holding the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.

4. After 10 seconds, you will hear another short beep and the system will shut down (release the button at this point).

5. Press and hold the power button again.

6. Continue holding the power button even after you hear a short beep after 5 seconds.

7. Release the button when two short beeps are emitted after 7 seconds.

8. As instructed by the on-screen message, plug in the controller and press the PS button

9. Select restore Play Station 3 system.

This should not affect any of your save games, demos, etc. but just to be safe you might want to back up to an external USB hard drive.

To backup saves, go to the Play Station 3 Save Data Utility, select the save you wish to copy and hit the Triangle button. Copy should come up as one of the options. If it does not then the save game is copyright protected and can’t be copied. If you can copy it, make sure you have a USB drive attached and copy it to that.

Saltware system from intex won't unlock


I'm not sure exactly what buttons you're pushing but you push the down button until it beeps, then the up button until it beeps. Then you set it. To lock it you push the down button until it beeps, then the up button until it beeps. Hope that helps and I apologize if those are the steps you're already taking.

Beeping with no boot up


Beep codes mean something has gone wrong with the computer. Beep codes most likely happen for: Memory, Processor, Motherboard.

Try reseating the memory in the computer.

Beep


The Polaroid Fun! Digital 320 camera is programmed to shut off automatically after a few minutes if it is not being used. This helps to conserve battery power. When the camera shuts itself off, it will make a continual beeping sound. To use the camera after it has shut off, simply push the shutter button or self-timer button to take a picture. If you are not going to use your camera, turn the power switch to OFF. The camera will also beep in rapid sequence after you press the self-timer button. The camera will continue to beep in faster sequence until a picture is taken (approximately 10 seconds). A final long beep signals that a picture has been taken. NOTE: It is normal for the camera to beep while downloading photos to a computer.
