Check your RAM....make sure it's connected properly.
Disconnect all power, and accessory(mouse, keyboard,etc..desktops only)). Be sure to touch anywhere inside the case for grounding yourself. disconnect all cd-roms, leave only hard disks connected -->remove and reinstall RAM ( memory cards) -->make sure that they fit all the way in and are secured by the brackets on each side --> restart the pc --> you will probably hear error beeps because nothing as been connected back. If booting sequence starts normally: problems solved, if not, you may have bad memory cards, or maybe even a bad motherboard.

Hope this helps...good luck

My computer got tipped over and won't boot up It beeps 4 short beeps and nothing happens.What does the beeps mean? It's a gateway dx4870-h with motherboard IPIMB-AR Rev:1.02a


The beeps mean that something has come unplugged from the motherboard, likely the video card or memory. Check that all the cards are plugged in fully, and you will likely be fine.

Gateway GM5442 PC Desktop Won't Boot!


3 BEEPS -RAM

Guest Posts: n/a 01-24-2005 We had a power failure in the office this weekend. All the systems are back
up and running fine, except for the receptionists. It's a Gateway
Professional Series. P4 1.3 Ghz. It is giving me three beeps. No boot up
screen and no video source (monitor light stays yellow instead of turning
green). I looked up the beep code and it says three beeps means the ram
needs reseated. Which I have done several times. Also, I have just put in
one stick in difference seats. I have also reseated all the cards at least
three times. I have switched the jumper to try to boot into setup mode.
Nothing there either. Popped out the cmos battery and put it back in. No
good either.

Has all the ram been fried? The fan on the cpu is still spinning. The cd-rom
ejects. I can't hear the hard drive spinning. I guess I can swap the hard
drive for a different one.

Anything I'm missing? YEP

Beeping upon startup and nothing else.


You need to check the RAM that is the first causes of beeping your system unit. Try to remove the RAM and clean the dust and re insert it. Try to use the other memory slot. You can try it 3 times. Thank you!

Motherboard beeps three times, computer won't boot up


Your computer is experiencing memory problems. Turn power off, remove and reseat the memory chips, and try it again. If not successful, try different memory chips. Also could be power supply problem

Gateway - 3 long beeps


Beep codes are different from motherboard to motherboard as they use different bios chips.
These may help depending on the make and model of board .
