Panasonic cordless phone kxgte474 does not beep when I have a message from my phone co. I have the base answering machine turned off. What am I doing wrong?


It won't beep. Take the phone off-hook, and listen for the dial tone. Interrupted dial tone is the signal you have messages.

THE RED LIGHT IS ON AND BEEPS EVERY MINUTE


What motherboard do you have? If you don't know, provice make and model of your system and maybe we can find out that way. Is it one long beep? Are there any other beeps and/or a sequence. A good place to start and alot of times, depending on your bios, 1 to 3 beeps means a problem with the RAM(memory). If you have more than 1 stick, you can pull them out, restart and if the beep is the same, you've probably found your culprit. You can then insert one at a time in one of your slots, then restart. If this works, you've found a good stick. If not, try another slot and restart, etc. Try all sticks in all slots.

Modem tells me there is no dial tone


Connect the modem to a telephone-jack.
Make sure that the telephone-wire has *FOUR* strands, not just *TWO* strands.

Or, unplug the FAX, and plug a telephone into that telephone-jack, and listen for a dial-tone.

Do you have electronic voice-mail from your telephone company?
If so, does it "beep" a few times when you pickup the handset?
Such "beeps" can confuse any modem that expects *instantly*
to "hear" a dial-tone.

When I go to turn on the computer, it just makes a beeping sound.


Beeping sound leting you something is wrong with some hardware. As for what,, listin to the beeps.. also depends on motherboard... here is a link http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml

But best way is to open up machine and make sure all the hardware is hooked up tight. If that does work look at the code list then go from there.

When I turn the hard drive on it beeps 6 times intermittently and doesnt boot up as normal. The monitor is switched on but there is no picture. I tried another monitor with my hard drive and that worked...


Unplug power from the machine for a period of 5-10 minutes.

Plug it back in and attempt to boot. Carefully notice if there are any beeps again, and listen for pauses in between. Dell beep codes go in a three pulse pattern I.E. 4-Slight Pause-4-Slight Pause-2-Pause/ and repeat.

After this, you may have to open your machine and assure that everything is well connected.

There is a chance however that a major system component has failed and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.
