When i turn my computer on it has a long beep sound and then another long beep and wont quit... please help

Check your MEMORY MODULES . Try removing them, cleaning them with rubbing alcohol and the reinstalling them. Re-boot. That should work, ok?

Hi Patrick,

I have seen this a few times over the years. It is a very common assumption that if the fans are running, then the power supply must be good. This is not a good assumption to make. It is actually quite common to have a power supply work enough to turn on fans but not be able to actually power up the system. Check this first, if this is not the problem, then you most likely have a dead CPU or dead Memory.

Hope this helps,

5 beeps are coming and after some time five beeps are repeating.system not booting

Hi ,

When you hear 5 beeps while booting or turning the computer off it is related to the operation of critical motherboard components - such as the CPU.Please try these steps to try fixing this problem .

Open up the computer tower and then once the side panel is out a test on the motherboard needs to be done and to do that look for the memory cards(Ram ) which would be green in colour,4 inches long and would be inserted in a slot that has clips in either ends that holds the card in the slot firmly.There can be one or more than one so remove the memory cards and then turn the computer on by just connecting the power cable,you should hear long beeping noise if you dont hear any then the motherboard needs to be replaced or needs to be serviced.

allthe best

I am missing critical files, the computer freezes all the time, i have to crash the computer to end programs quit often

Missing critical files? Re-install your OS. You should have a boot disc. Put it in, and boot from that drive.

Beep sound continus

I went to google and it seems like the beeps can be problems for different problems in the hardware, this is what one message says,  there are lots of computer beeping answers out there: 1 short beep is your BIOS saying "HELLO I'M OK" 

Standard Original IBM POST Error Codes 

1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 
2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen 
No beep Power supply or system board problem 
Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem 
Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 
1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 
1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 
1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 
3 long beeps keyboard card 

Each BIOS company has modified these codes over the years.

My computer refuse to beep and display while booting,but other light are on

Hi when you say that your computer isn't beeping or displaying what exactly do you mean? Is there power getting to the system? Is the other light on the monitor? Are the drives firing up?

It may be that the power lead has come unplugged or, on some computers, the switch above the power supply at the back has been switched off.
Sorry to be vague but need more info.
Hope this helps

Internal led of ML350 server is do i resolve it?

Hi Franceso, plz specify
Is it powering ON ?
Which LED is glowing?
These leds are there on the front panel :

1 Power On/Standby button
2 System power LED
Green = Power on
Amber = System shut down, but power still applied
Off = No power

3 Internal health LED (Wave sign in BOX)
Green = Normal
Amber = System degraded. To identify the component in a degraded state, refer to system board LEDs.
Red = System critical. To identify the component in a critical state, refer to system board LEDs.
Off = Normal (when in standby mode)

4 External health LED (power supply)
Green = Normal
Amber = Power redundancy failure
Red = Critical power supply failure
5 NIC 1 activity LED Green = Network link
Flashing = Network link and activity
Off = No link to network.
6 UID LED Blue = Activated
Flashing = System remotely managed
Off = Deactivated
7 UID button

If it is Internal health led then any internal h/w issue is suspected.
If it is external health led then any power supply or power source related issue is suspected.
Also check the status of the server & its IML (Integrated Management Logs) in ilo (Integrated Lights Out ) if it is configured. (2nd RJ45 port in rear)

Also make sure the cabinet is properly closed.
