Hi,
The buzzing alarm is a beep code which indicates a hardware problem.
Try removing the system memory and clean the brass contacts and the slots it goes into, then reseat the memory and try to boot again, the memory looks like this >>>>>>>

What you need is a soft, clean, dry paintbrush.
Remove the powercord from the back of the PC.
Start by removing the ram and clean the contacts with the brush, then clean the brass contacts, reset the memory and the powercord and try booting the computer.
If it still won't boot count the beeps and how long they are and post back here.


Regards.

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...


The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

My tower turns on and makes this consistent beeping sound. And nothing shows on the screen.


I believe from my own past that the beeping sound is an over-heating alarm, and that you need to get more fans installed inside. Try taking off the door to your tower, and point a fan in on it and turn off the computer, wait about 5 minutes with the fan set to high to see if that solves your problem. If it doesn't then I suggest you take it in to the shop or wait for some more possible answers on here.

Hope this helps!

We understand that your problem is: My 95 jeep


Have it towed to a car alarm specialist that is familar with Chrysler products. With a little luck they can fix it.. To reset alarm
(if it will work}, try locking drivers door and unlock it with the remote from outside.

The 5 second thing does not sound good.. Usually this locks your ECM out so it will never start. Thinks someone is trying to steal it.

The on off button on front doesn?t turn the unit off and on


Same here, your light went out if you put a VERY bright light on you'll be able to see something on the screen if you plug it up to your computer, if you are getting a new one go dell its worth it becase they last and are durable.

Computer will not start,audible alarm every 5 seconds


Check your power supply. A beep every 5 seconds or so generally indicates a problem with power supply voltages.
