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 .

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

Gateway mfatxstl elp 500c. MEMORY PROBLEM


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.

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!
