Beeping sound when starting

Usually when you first turn the power on ... it's usual to hear a couple of beeping sounds . And then, you may hear whirling/clicking sounds when your disk starts up (rotating) and your CD/DVD drive starts up, etc.. Then the monitor/screen lights up and starts to show the operating system (e.g. Windows) panel ... as it starts up.

If your system just beeps ... and beeps ... and beeps... and nothing else happens, the screen doesn't light up and show anything (for a few minutes), it likely the system is not starting up properly.

If you can clarify what actually happens, maybe I can offer more suggestions/information to help.

Acer m6141 starts up but screen stays black No error messages (beeps). Tried starting up without graphics card , 1 memoryblock instead of two etc.

If you are sure the display is good, the video card may be defective and needs to be replaced.
Look to see what type you need, AVG, PCI Express or PCI.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a good day.

Well first its kind of the same problem but idnk wats wrong everything is new and built from scratch but nothin... it turns on fans spining and etc. but no turn on beep no boot to bios or nothing jus sits...

No beep?
1 Start with making sure all conections are correct,hard drive,dvd,cd,floppy.
2 Check that processor is mounted correctly,remove and do over.
3 Also processor fan.And heatsink.
4 Memory sticks,remove and put back in firmly and secure.If you have 4 memory slots and 2 memory sticks,seperate them.Most slots are color coded white blue white blue or whatever color you may have.So if you have 2 memory sticks put one in white slot,and the other in next white slot.

Im betting you have either processor in wrong or memory in wrong.

Pc has power but nothing shows on screen. motherboard doesnt beep once like it used to when turned on but green light is on indicating its ok.


Remove the ram and check, is the motherboard beeps or not..

it should beep as long beeps....and should continue beeping after serveral times until u switch off it...
then reconnect the ram after swiching off power...

remove the data cables of hdd and cd/dvd and then try to switch it on...
if it works fine then reconnect it properly...

Fault can be in Ram or data cables perhaps...


hope it will fix the issue so dont forget to rate it...

No display on computer

First thing is do you have a beep when the system boots? Sounds like you may have a BIOS issue I would start there........your RAM and processor are more than likely NOT the problem

I have an HP Pavilion 6535 computer using Windows 98SE. It was fine but now when I turn it on, the power comes on (has start up sounds and cd drive light) but there is no green light on near the start...

Listen for the number of beeps, when you turn on the pc. The beep code should be able to tell you what is wrong. It's possible that the power supply or the video card is bad.
