Dell computer makes a beeping sound when turned on and screen is black


Hi daisy jean,
The beeping sounds you hear are error code beeps which are associated with problem devices installed in your computer. The most common problem component is the RAM memory which slots into the motherboard inside your computer. It is often caused by static on the RAM chips and simply removing the RAM and spraying it with an anti-static electronic aerosol spray will often solve the problem.
The second most common cause for beeps when turning on your PC is
due to a faulty display card. If your PC has an on-board display card(this is the card where you plug your screen in), you will have to buy an add-on PCI-E display card to replace the faulty on-board display card.
Let me know if you need any clarification.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

On startup there is 4 beeps then 2 then nothing. The laptop belongs to my grandouther.the power coard was frade,so my guess is that's where the problem started.


Beep codes are used by the BIOS during the POST to report certain initial system errors.
If you're hearing beep codes after you turn your computer on, it typically means that the system has encountered some kind of problem before it was able to display any kind of error information on the monitor.
Follow the steps below to determine what system problem the beep code is representing.
Difficulty: Average Time Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours depending on the cause of the beep code Here's How:
  1. Power on the computer or restart it if it's already on.
  2. Listen very carefully to the beep codes that sound when the computer begins to boot.
    Restart your computer if you need to hear the beeping again. You're not likely to make whatever problem you have worse by restarting a few times.
  3. Write down, in whatever way makes sense to you, how the beeps sound.
    Important: Pay close attention to the number of beeps, if the beeps are long or short and if the beeping repeats or not. There is a big difference between a "beep-beep-beep" beep code and a "beep-beep" beep code.
    This is all important information that will help determine what issue the beep codes are representing.
  4. What steps you take to solve a particular beep code will differ depending on the BIOS manufacturer.
    Choose the correct beep code troubleshooting guide below based on your motherboard's BIOS manufacturer:
    Tip: Not sure what brand of BIOS is on your motherboard? See this How to Determine Your Motherboard BIOS Manufacturer guide for some helpful advice.

Acer aspire 9300 black screen (display adapter)


I have been fixing computers that has long beeps and short ones. It is usually attributed to memory problem connection. Open the memory compartment at the back of the PC then detach the memory card. Clean with cloth softly enough not to destroy the circuit board or a pencil eraser to clean-up dust that caused the connection blockade. Reconnect after cleaning.

No display!!!!


you probably know that something else got messed up in the switch.

Here is a page talking about BIOS beep error codes.

I'd do a few things. Reseat the RAM, this is easy and could be messed up..

I'm worried that there was a short or some other issue that damaged a component on the main board. I'd try to follow the Power On Self Test (POST) error codes from above, or google it more to see if you can find your exact symptom. If you are still getting beeps, you should be able to determine exactly what is wrong.

The screen problem sounds like a leaky capacitor or other failing component that once warmed up exhibits close enough to the correct values to correct the display problem (this usually progressively worsens with every boot of the laptop until no benefit occurs after warm up).

The beeping sound suggests a hardware error, and could be the keyboard. I have seen this on a Satellite and randomly pressing multiple keys on the keyboard momentarily stopped the beeping and allowed the unit to boot (yours seems to be getting past the error beeps on it's own though, suggesting another culprit). The problem could be bad RAM, so pulling one stick of RAM out at a time and starting the computer will eliminate or confirm the RAM as the problem. Other removable hardware such as the hard drive (you would have to install another hard drive to check this one), wireless card, PCMCIA card/device, USB removable hardware (mice, keyboards, wireless antennas, etc...), should be the first devices disconnected to eliminate as being the cause.

Sounds like a real problem child/laptop. Multiple simultaneous problems are always tougher to troubleshoot as they can compliment/effect each other, so look at the one that occurred first. Good luck!

Monitor did not responding


When you first power on a computer it checks itself out for proper operation even before you see anything on the screen. This process is called Power On Self Test, as no video is yet displayed and moreover there may even be a video problem the computer sends out beeps over its internal speaker to indicate its status. Usually you will just hear one beep then the computer will "come to life", if however there are any problems you hear a series of beeps. For a description of these beeps and what they mean please click here. Hope this helps !!
