Re: 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 . http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml#Award http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/phoenixbeep.htm

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
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.
Check all of the other connections all around where you was at. Sometimes it dont take much to knock one of them loose. Also take the chip backn out and take a pencil eraser and clean the contacts on the chip with it.
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!
I have the same model after youlet it sit for a long enough period to cool down it will come back on and work normal, it is a cooling problem called gateway and they confirmed this theproblem I ran in to was what fan this computer has 3. temp fix I used was to remove the tower cover to allow better air flow try this till you can figure out what fan is messing up
