Count the number of beeps and whetehr they are long or short beeps. If you have a system manual, this beep code will tell you which part is causing the fail. Most likely it's bad or loose memory or cpu.

BLACK SCREEN BEEPS 6 TIMES


Although not certain, it may be caused by a connector getting flaky.
If you are adventurous, unplug the system, remove the back panel and anything you find that is plugged should be carefully removed and plugged back in again.

Some connectors have a high number of contacts which makes them prone to this kind of problem.
If you recognize the memory cards, don't forget them, they can contain up to 288 contacts and any of these going intermittent will cause this.

Pix of these modules can be seen here if you aren't sure:

My pc turns on but all it does is beep intermittently... any idea what's wrong?


what make and model is the computer? How many beeps does it give each time it beeps? Does anything display on the screen? It may be a problem with the graphics card or the memory card. If it is a desktop PC then try removing the graphics card and the memory card one at a time and turn the PC on each time. If you hear a change in the beeps then that card either the memory or the graphics card which you removed is a good piece and the other one is bad. In which case you need to change the bad one. Let me know if this works.

It beeps and will not boot an intermittent beep.I checked to see if the components seemed seated correctly as far as I know they are I am a total novice.Any way it will not boot in anyway and the beep was...


Take out the memory thats inside of the computer and reseat each memory one stick at a time in each slot one at a time. Try turning on the computer as well after each reseat to see if the beeps go away.

If that doesn't work then take out the processor and reseat it as well.

If the computer has a video card in one of the slots, take that out and reseat that as well.

If after all of this the computer still beeps, then the motherboard is bad.

Computer dead and beeping


If it beeps and not boot then it is the post routine telling you there is a problem. The post routine is run when you turn the power on to ensure the computer hardware is ok to run. The manufacturer of the bios routine can tell what is wrong by the type, number and duration of the beeps. Look up the code meanings and it will indicate the problem. If this sounds like nonsense to you then give the make and model of your machine and what the beeps sound like. ( beep beep beep delay beep beep beep) etc. and I'll look it up for you.

C1641 intermittent beeps and won't start up


Is is possible that the RAM you put in was not sited properly. Just check it to see if it is right. You might need to troubleshoot by removing one peripheral at a time. Try removing the keyboard, and turn it on and see what happen. If same, mouse, network card, etc until you find the issue.

Cusl2-c motherboard problem, no clue what it is


can you give me the beeps explanation. All computers have a standard "beep code" this is a standard code to determine the problems in boot up. Long beeps, short beeps, intermittent beeps all mean something. Can you give me your best definition of the beep codes ? long, short, quick successive beeps etc also can you give the nake and model of the computer.

System crash--won't boot up


The intermittent beeping is the error code. It is important that you notice how many beeps your computer makes.
Then, you can go to the following link (from HP) http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07107&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=71010&lang=en
and check what is wrong with your computer.

Anyway, you can always recover the information on your computer, but will have to take the hard disk out of the computer and plug it onto another as a secondary hard disk.
