Hello

The beep code you are getting has nothing to do with your HDD, it is actually a fault with the ram chip(s) in your computer.

If you have 2 or more ram chips installed, take out all the ram and install the one by one. Doing this you can find out which ram chip is faulty. If you only have one chip installed, take it out and test in in another computer before buying a new chip.

This is how the ram module looks like in general:i get a 3sec beep everytime the pc tries to boot - 06931a6.jpg


Hope this can help

Kind regards

Remove the memory. Clean the connections and replace. If you have more than one stick try them one at a time.

Check your BIOS > StartUp sequence
Maybe the USB boot option has much higher priority that HDD boot. Try exchanging their priority and then reboot, with your external HD connected to pc.

My Seagate starts to boot up but then goes to a dark blue screen(no words) and you can hear the H.D> working, then the computer beeps once and nothing further happens.


Hi,
the blue screen, is usually a Hardware Or Software ( operating System error ) The Computer beeping Once, States that The Computers Hardware is Fine. I,d try formatting the hard-drive, and reinstalling Your Operating System et,c. I,d assume this is a missing or corrupt windows system file. Or possible hard-drive error. ( virus-Trojan-Worm ) are also suspect.

Emachine crash


Yes, with that beeping sound that you're hearing from your hard drive is a sign of a bad hard drive , that's also the reason why the computer wont even boot because the hard drive is already bad, the best thing that you can do here is to get a new hard drive..

Hope that helps..............

Compaq laptop/no boot up


Hi,

Initially it may be suspected that your laptop is detecting a hardware problem, probably the hard disk. Since it partially boots and there is display, the following can be ruled out: video card, memory and display systems. That would leave us the hard disk and the motherboard left. If the motherboard is in question, chances are it is the BIOS.

Pls try and verify that the hard disk is connected snugly. The hard drive is usually inside one of the slots covered by a panel/lid held by a single screw.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, further diagnosis may be required.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FIXYA.
