There could be two things causing the issue.
1. The motherboard inside the system is on a verge of burnig out
2. Could be a lose componet like , memory, modem , etc causing the problem
Steps you can take: Remove AC power and battery from the system ,Press the power button for 10 seconds. Replug and check

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.

Laptop wont turn on just does 16 beeps


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.

I have a toshiba satellite p305d-s8828 laptop and have 19dc @ plug going into main board and 19dc on motherboard. Is the motherboard fired? And no power on computer.


Since you have measured the voltage on the motherboard I must presume you are saying there is no power "indicator light" on computer. If this is not the case please clarify. If the light is absent please test the battery as these laptops are not designed to work without a battery or with a dead battery. Operating without a battery can spike the motherboard or other components and cause failure due to overvoltage. If you do have a power indicator light then next observe whether the bootup is proceeding with a beep after the POST (power on self test) and whether you can hear the movement of the hard disk drive... possibly indicating failed LCD display or display drivers/setup. Press F8 after the POST beep to get to safe mode display drivers.

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.

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen


3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s

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!
