    Are the beeps 2 long and one short beeps? if so this indicates a bad bios. If its 2 short and 1 long it indicates a memory error and you can try reseating the ram or replacing it.

Firstly, many of your components are highly sensitive to static shock (the poke you get from touching certain things), so take care to avoid exposing computer's components to this.Try changing your RAM\Memory. Or just remove one stick and then try turning it on. If it works, then the stick you removed is causing the problem. If it still doesn't work right after removing one stick, then take out the other stick of RAM and put back in the one you took out to begin with. If you get it to start, then most likely the stick that you have removed is the cause of the problem. Try putting the sticks in different slots (one at a time) as well. Sometimes the slots go bad but not the memory. If you tested the RAM and the slots as described above and it still won't come on, then you may have some more severe problems that may require you to have the motherboard replaced in order for it to work right. Such as, the video chip is malfunctioning (this is affixed to the board and not easy to replace, the chipset is burned out (again, affixed to the motherboard), & etc. Please leave feedback about this solution. Thank you!

Last night my galaxy tab 3, 10.1 started making a consistent bell ring sound. I was not using it at the time. I picked it up and the screen was blinking and changing colour from normal to black...


Probably because you don't normally turn it off.
It got confused.
I turn my phone off about once a week - it gradually loses battery longevity because of whatever processes started running.

I know it's not for your exact model, but manufacturers often have the same method of hard reset for all of their devices. Specifically:

"The button to hold down is the menu button next to the home button. With it powered on hold down tthe menu and power buttons until it goes off, then release the power button and then hold it again while holding the menu button. An android with an exclamation and triangle will appear. Tap the power button and the menu for reset or updates appears. Select factory restore and follow instructions then select reboot at next screen and you`re done."
Hope it helps u too
