Continuous beeping sound

Hello,

my computer emits a continuous beeping sound once I turn it on. The handbook states that this is due to mouse/keyboard detection failure or a stuck button on the mouse/keyboard. I have checked the mouse/keyboard connections and ensured that there are no stuck buttons but my computer still emits a continuous beeping noise.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated...

    Beep Codes
    Your computer might emit a series of beeps
    during start-up if the monitor cannot display
    errors or problems. The following repetitive
    beep codes help you troubleshoot problems
    with your computer.
    NOTE: To replace parts, see the Service
    Manual on the Dell Support website at
    support.dell.com.
    One beep - BIOS ROM checksum failure;
    possible motherboard failure
    Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell" on page 53).
    Two beeps - No RAM detected

    Remove the memory modules, reinstall
    one module and restart the computer. If
    the computer starts normally, reinstall anadditional module. Continue until you have
    identified a faulty module or reinstalled all
    modules without an error.

    If available, install memory modules of the
    same type in your computer.

    Three beeps - Possible motherboard failure
    Contact Dell (see "Contacting Dell' on page 53).
    Four beeps - RAM read/write failure

    Ensure that no special memory module/
    memory connector placement requirements
    exist (see the Service Manual on the Dell
    Support website at support.dell.com).

    Verify that the memory modules that you are
    installing are compatible with your computer.

    Beeps always indicate error excluding a one single beep only which indicate process.Every manufacturer has its own beep setting. it comprises on short and long beeps. If previously it working good, then your idea may be correct. replace both the keyboard and mouse with existing. start computer if now it not giving beeps it meant that one of them is causing problem. connect one by one and start computer you will reach. AND if even after replacing keyboard and mouse it gave beeps then shut down your system. Open casing remove processor and memory chip out and connect them again it will work now INSHALLAH.

    Computer when turned on will not boot and makes a long beep continuously and then makes like a siren sound


    The long beeps probably mean a problem with RAM. So try replacing it. Check whether the CPU Cooler (the fan on top of the processor) is working. If the fan is not working, the processor gets hot, and a siren sound is emitted. Also check whether power unit fan (at the back) is working. If RAMs are replaced and you still get the beeps, the problem may be with the VGA. (The beep sounds help to identify the problem, but the sounds differ with different BIOS models).

    Computer beeps when first turning on


    If your computer is still under warranty, the company should replace them. If not, you can buy them really cheap.

    Or you could just return the computer. This is what I would do, because it might not be the mouse/keyboard that is causing this. It could be that you just have a bad motherboard.
