Please check this list What beet you receive? Its better that you could post the BIOS model.
Check this link
You can understand what kinda error you have in your configurations. If you see this on the boot time (after the POST* has run) that might be a problem with a hardware device. Such as a removable drive (atapi device - cd rom drive) or connectors.
Boot the machine and when you are in Windows: Start -> Run (or win key + r together) and type this in and enter. Eventvwr.msc In the event viewer window navigate to System. Check for Red X marks (errors) and Yellow ! marks (warnings). You will be able to find the problem in their as well. That is not guaranteed but there is a good chance of the message being logged by the Event Viewer. (Remember the time when you booted it. Log is sorted using time.)
We are ready to assist you further.

Sc 5100 beeps on startup


These are EACH... DIFFERENT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION ERRORS at boot
Check that you have not changed any hardware/added any hardware and that these changes were/or have not TAKEN EFFECT yet
Power down system.... use CMOS RESET pin config jumper to reset your boot configuration(s) changes
Multi-"BEEP" error messages are usually connected to RAM CONFIGS. and I would suggest uninstalling ram chips..... but ONLY AFTER FULL SYSTEM "power drainage"!!!... i.e. pulling power plug from your PSU, removing system battery or unplugging it's terminal wiring mobo connector, and pressing the POWER BUTTON on your system

Got a backup?

If not, download a Linux Live CD. Boot your machine with it, save all your data to an external drive and then do a complete disk format and re-install. That will be quicker in the long run.

Not sure about that PC, but on Dell, for example, you hit CTRL-F10 (I think) at power-on and it gives you the option of reinstalling the OS from the recovery partition (wiping any unbacked-up data in the process).,,Gateway is probably similar.

The Boot/BCD issue means your 'Boot Configuration Data' is hosed.

BIOS Beep Codes
Whenever a recoverable error occurs during POST, the BIOS displays an error message describing the problem. The BIOS also issues a beep code (one long tone followed by two short tones) during POST if the video configuration fails (a faulty video card or no card installed) or if an external ROM module does not properly checksum to zero.
An external ROM module (for example, a video BIOS) can also issue audible errors, usually consisting of one long tone followed by a series of short tones. For more information on the beep codes issued, check the documentation for that external device.
There are several POST routines that issue a POST terminal error and shut down the system if they fail. Before shutting down the system, the terminal-error handler issues a beep code signifying the test point error, writes the error to I/O port 80h, attempts to initialize the video and writes the error in the upper left corner of the screen (using both monochrome and color adapters).
If POST completes normally, the BIOS issues one short beep before passing control to the operating system.

When i turn on mt pc it beeps 9 times and noyhing


What you are hearing is a "post error code".

The codes vary depending on the manufacture.
For instance if you have a Dell 2400 trying searching the web for "Dell 2400 post beeps".

Although I believe 9 beeps is commonly a CMOS error.
If so, you can try clearing the CMOS.
You will have to know how to get to the Computer BIOS screen to set things if you do clear/reset the configuration.

Pc beeps 4times y?


4 short beeps
Your problem could
be a bad timer. The system timer failed to work properly. It will
require motherboard replacement.

1 long and 3 short beeps
Memory test failure. An error has been detected
in the memory over the first 64K. Try replacing the memory, and if
that doesn’t do it, the motherboard.

Beep codes are the beeps you hear from the
PC speaker when you turn on your computer. They are your computer’s way of letting you know what’s going on when there is no video signal. These codes are programmed into the BIOS of the PC.
