When you first turn your computer on it runs a series of test called the POST, which stands for Power On Self Test. When your computer fails one or more of these test the computer sounds a sequence of beeps that let you know which test(s) were failed.
These are different for different models of computers. You can go to your computer manufacturers web site and do a search for "POST error codes" to find out just what the code means for your computer.
This does mean you have a hardware problem. If you're not real savy with computer electronics you most likely will need to take it to who is but check the codes first, there's no need to pay someone if the problem turns out to be bad enough that the computer isn't worth repairing.
Best of luck to you.

My gateway laptop nv series screen wont turn on when i boot up my laptop


you must take note to the beep of you laptop. when you turn the laptop op it should make a single beep sound. if not then in means you need to replace you cpu (central processing unit} or known as a processor. thy tend to blow wen the cpu dose not get serviced. the thermal compound on the laptop cpu must be removed properly and reapplied every 3-6 mouths max.

How to remove beep sound after the system sound?


the beeps ate called post

Then what happens does it restart ? or just wont boot up ?

A bit more information please.


Not sure what you mean by 'when the hard drive beeps
does the hard drive start when you turn the laptop on

(at which point a do the beeps occur a single beep isn't unusual) and it stops when you turn the hard drive off - a beep then would be unusual.


I suspect you don't mean that, & if the laptop is working fine otherwise then I wouldn't worry about it or do you mean something else completely?

make sure the ram modules have secure seatings also check all power and data leads attached from motherboard to hard drive the same will apply for your graphics card


hope this helps

When i turn it on just the green lights and nothing on display with 16 beeps


There are lots of reasons for the beeps. Most of the time its a hardware issue and most of it is the RAM. Please red the below link and hope it would be of help.
http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm
You may try to do some isolation of the problem. You may
  • remove the RAM memory and check if the beeping stops
  • remove the Harddrive and check if the beeping stops
  • boot the computer using external device like USB CD/DVD Drive, floppy drive with DOS...etc and check if it goes through.
From here you would know what causing this error. Hope this helps.

One long beep, two shorter beeps - HP laptop will not start up


Hi...
I had the same problem...
The solution is only temporary and you will have to reapply it after around 5 to 6 boots cuz it'll just happen again (the beep syndrome).

Just heat up the laptop by turning it on and covering its air vents with your hands.

Then after you hear the beeps turn it off.
Turn the laptop on again and immediately turn it over upside down with the lid closed ofcoarse (simply put it on its back).Hopefully you wont hear the beeps and when you open up the laptop lcd...voila display.
