For some strange reason the moment you open it up and clean a pc thats been working fine for a while, it gives problems! I know its happened to me as well :)

The beep scenario you mentioned is usually when the graphic card fails, but it might be that you have not fixed it properly back into its slot (assuming its not an onboard graphic card). If its not an onboard what you can do is take the graphic card blow any dust that might have got into that slot, and also take some perfume or similar item (that evaporates quickly in air) and clean the gold contacts, keep it for a while to evaporate any liquid and then reinsert the card and try.

If the graphic card is onboard the problem can be very different!

Blank screen and continuous beeps when computor starts up

Count the beeps, they tell the technician what is going on. Normally that is a pattern to the beeps such as (3 long beeps, 1 long beep followed by two short beeps).

Does the laptop post anything on the screen when you hit the power button or does it immediately start beeping?

Just off the top of my head I would think you've got a memory issue. It could be a Video Card issue too.

What brand and model is your laptop?

Lets, try the memory tests just in case:

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

My compaq presario sr1000 computor won't stop beeping from the inside and it says no signal on the monitor

1 short beep and 1 long beep means its a memory problem.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and replace the memory module.If you have 2 or more modules ,try starting the pc with one.If it fails, try a different single module.

2 short beeps and 1 long beep repeating for 5 times means its a graphics card issue.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and unplug the graphics card, then plug it again.If this doesn't help, try with a different(confirmed working) graphics card.

One Short beep and two long beep

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes. Sort of like a Morse code, if you know what that is. Every computer has it's own BIOS program, and version of that program. Each BIOS has it's own Beep Codes.

Taking a guess, as I don't know what BIOS program or version you have, it sounds like a ram memory issue.
Suggest you,

1.Unplug the computer

2.Open the computer case

3.TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve you body of Static electricity. Static will silently fry out your delicate computer hardware components. You won't see it or feel it.

4.Remove the ram stick/s. Reinstall the ram stick/s. (Stick/s means one ram stick, or two, three, or four ram sticks)

You may have just had a loose ram stick.

Video problems with wow

Sorry, but you need to provide more details about your system before a relevant answer to your question can be posted.

  • Is this a persistent problem? Does it happen after rebooting? Every time you play WOW? When did the problem first occur? Does it happen when WOW is the only program running? Etc.

This is a problem with your memory.

During POST, the computer checks the computer's memory, determines the amount of installed memory, and then writes to and reads from the number of available bytes to ensure proper operation.
Basic Checks:
  • If an insufficient memory message appears, save and close any open files and exit any open application programs not in use.

  • Consider installing additional system memory.

  • Run the System Memory test in the Dell Diagnostics.

  • Reseat the memory modules.

  • Restart the computer.
If the problem still exists after you complete the basic checks, fill out the Diagnostic Checklist as you perform the following steps.
caution.gif CAUTION: Before you perform this procedure, see "Safety Information."
  1. Reboot the computer.
Does the RAM count displayed correctly match the actual amount of memory installed in the computer?
Yes. The computer needed to update the memory count. The problem is resolved.
No. Go to step 2.
  1. Run the System Memory test group in the Dell Diagnostics.
Did any of the diagnostics tests fail?
Yes. Contact Dell for technical assistance.
No. Go to step 3.
  1. Turn off the computer and peripherals, disconnect them from their electrical outlets, wait at least 5 seconds, and then open the computer cover.

  2. Rotate the power supply away from the system board.

  3. Replace the memory module(s).

  4. Close the computer cover, reconnect the computer and peripherals to their electrical outlets, and turn them on.
Does the RAM count displayed correctly match the actual amount of memory installed in the computer?
Yes. The memory module(s) were defective. The problem is resolved.
No. Contact Dell for technical assistance.
