Intel pentium - booting up ok, but nothing shows on screen. Pressed F12 came up with error message error setting up the MD3 over power button. Also, unable to locate media direct BIOS table.


If your computer is showing nothing on screen it is not booting up OK. Are there any beep codes being given during bootup? One single beep at the end of the POST sequence is OK, anything more means some kind of hardware error found during bootup. Media Direct 3 is a Dell product that has caused a number of problems on its computers. See Dell MediaDirect . Your option may be limited to contacting Dell support.

Everytime i boot my pc,it beeps 2x,then black screen,so i have to reboot again


The beeping is caused by your computers POST( Power On Self Test - learn something new everyday! ;) )
Find your motherboard manual, and have a look in it for beep codes, or error codes. The number of beeps will let you know what kind of problem you're dealing with.
If all is well in POST, your computer should only beep once, and continue.
Can you get into BIOS at all, or does it just show you your videocard info on bootup, then black screen?

When I turn on the computer during POST the motherboard buzzer makes a 6-7 second long beep error code. Thanks in advance for your answer.


Hello;

The "beeps" your motherboard is making is an error code, designed to alert you of an error in an essential system component, such as a memory failure, general motherboard failure, video card failure, etc. When a PC is started, no matter the brand, it goes through a POST (power on self test).

The types of beeps is a code, and is often system specific; changing from the manufacturer of the system BIOS, (BIOS; Basic Input Output System). If you know the bios mfg, you can get a POST error code chart for that specific manufacturer online... this will tell you what component is in question...

I do find it odd that you've changed a motherboard, without trying to change your keyboard! Seems like it would be easier to troubleshoot a keyboard issue, than swapping out a motherboard.

I don't know how fast your post code error is coming out, but if you don't know the mfg of your BIOS, it splashes it on the screen at bootup, or you can check your manufacturer's website.

Makes loud alarm sound when it is booting up and scrolls up on its own


Hello there lmitche4.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Is the sound you're describing a "beep"/tone? In all likelihood it's yes. At bootup, beeps codes occur if the motherboad/BIOS encounters any error during the POST (Power-On-Self-Test) sequence. Unless just one single beep (all is well), these beeps alert you about, and to the nature of, a problem in need investative/corrective actions on your part.

Refer here and/or here for an index of beep-codes, then determine which beep sequence you're hearing. You'll first need to know which BIOS you have installed. You can determine this quite easily by hitting the "Pause/Break" key on your keyboard in order to freeze the screen at the initial part of bootup when this info is typically displayed.

Good luck, and please do post back to ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.

1 long beep, no bootup. I just get a test screen.


The beep you hear is known as a bios beep code. It indicates the failure to post and can be used to determine what kind of error is preventing your startup, but you need to know what kind of bios or motherboard you have installed. You should be able to look this up at the eMachines support site, but using your model number to find the original specifications of the system.
Then use this article to troubleshoot the error. Also helpful may be this article and this site.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

T40 starts bootup, beeps five times and stops.


Probably memory. Check you manual for the POST codes.

Constant beeping


I would first check that all the fans are turning when you first power it up. It may have fan speed sensors on them, and one or more fans aren't coming up to speed. I would check the CPU fan(s), as they are usually smaller, and tend to go bad before the other larger ones.
