Most likely this is an overheating issue. If the system is still under warranty you may send this system back to the depot center for repair.

My vehicle will not start but when I turn the key the car beeps at me.


More than likely, as crazy as it may seem, if the Battery is more than 3-years old it's probably not holding a good enough charge for starting. Try a Jump from another vehicle cable go Black to Black and red to red. If it starts take the cables off and let it charge a while.Shut it off and try it again, if you still have problems get the battery and Charging system professionally checked. Good Luck.

I have a Gateway NV53A laptop. I love my laptop however there have some problems lately and now it would even charge. The first issue was there would be some sort of a straching noise as if something was...


The charging problem could be a faulty charging circuit in the laptop or the laptop battery is worn out. Rechargeable have a finite number of charge cycles.
The beeping noise is a power on self Test error message and the number of beeps indicates the error code.
You need to take your laptop to a computer repair shop the assess the laptop's fault and when you get the quote then decide to get it repaired or put your money towards a new laptop.
If you decide to get a new laptop you can salvage the hard disk from your old laptop and insert the hard drive into an USB hard drive case and use it as an external USB hard drive for data backups and file transfers.

Hi my hp battery is not charging and is making a beeping noise what can i do to fix it?


Ifthe laptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.
Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED lightup? If not then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

E6500 making a beeping noise


Does beeping noise happened before turning on laptop? If yes unplug the laptop from the AC Adapter. Just leave AC Adapter ON and connected to the power outlet. Check if AC Adapter is the one making beeping noise. Note: This is an issue with dell AC Adapter laptops
If no beeping noise in AC Adapter then proceed checking it from the laptop. Does beeping noise happened immediately when laptop is turned on? If yes then it might be laptop's hard drive creating the sound. Try to check the BIOS in your laptop under the category performance if the HDD Acoustic is ON either in Normal or Performance. Note: When laptop is in performance the hard drive makes noise due to its speed, this is normal if BIOS HDD Acoustic mode is ON to performance.
If the noise only happens when sometime while working on the laptop, this might be cause by the laptop fan. This also happens after turning on the laptop fan my have dirt and dust, please do check.
If fan was cleaned, HDD performance was checked and AC adapter was checked then, carefully sense if noise is coming from the internal speakers.
Download the latest BIOS update for your laptop then flash the BIOS. Make sure battery and AC adapter are connected when doing these.

Why does the power inverter keep beeping when i plug up my laptop


If your not getting enough voltage to the inverter it will beep to let you know you don't have enough power. Most common cause is a lose connection thru your cigarette lighter. Also if you turn your key off it might be shutting down power to your plug.
Make sure you have a good connection with your battery or plug adapter. You also need a good battery so you don't go into a low voltage condition which will make your inverter beep.

The AC Adapter makes a beeping noise and doesn't charge the batt.


I would verify that the battery will take a charge. If the battery is bad, the charger will tell you that it is not charged. It will not tell you why, just that it is not charged. If not plugged into the computor,again, battery is not charged. Hence, the beep.

Good Luck and hope this helps.

Aspire 5100


make sure the power adaptor is connected, powered on and your computer has lights confirming that you are getting external power. Make sure your battery is plugged in. Try powering the computer on. Look for any signs/noises from the computer. Try holding the power button down for about 10-20 seconds. Often this can reset the computer. Sometimes you may need to let the laptop charge its battery for a while before it will turn on, Good luck - if this doesn't work, report back with more information - ie any noises, fans, beeps, flashing of the screen that occurs.
