    The main issue is that my computer won't even start it just beeps one long and two shorts and repeats. I have moved the RAM around and it still won't work. It has been working for years until recently.

This varies between manufacturers. There is no standard for counting the beeps or for what they mean. Double check your keyboard connector and video card connection. In fact, remove everything from the motherboard except the keyboard and Video card. If the board doesn't start then you know it is one of these two devices. If it does then shut it down and install the RAM and reboot. If the board doesn't boot double check that you have the correct RAM for your board and make sure you have it installed correctly. Your going to do this with every device 1 at a time until you find the device that is causing the problem. Unfortunately you can't tell what's wrong by counting the beeps or type of beeps you hear.

    That is a new variable. You had it working then one day it just stopped. You need to isolate what has caused the fault. I would look at things in this order: RAM, Keyboard, Video Card, Hard Drive, BIOS, CPU Fan, CPU, Hard Drive. The easiest way to check them except for the CPU and Bios is to remove the Part and replace it with a working part from another computer. If you have been tinkering inside the case check that all your cables are fully connected. The last possible problem could be the Power Supply if it started sending the wrong voltage down a pin it could cause this. Your going to be isolating the different parts until you find the problem 1 piece at a time.

PC will not boot up. Almost did once but screen went black. Reboot doesn't help. No green light on monitor and PC makes a long slow beep over and over. I have recovery discs but when put it nothing...


Based on your description of your problem, my educated guess is that you have a problem with the system board or motherboard. Checking Compaq support site, it says that beeps are generally heard when a hardware device is not connected properly or has failed.

First thing to try is disconnect the keybaord and mouse and try to start the computer again. What we are trying to do is find out which hardware device might be involved. So start with the keyboard an mouse. If the computer still does not start, remove any periferal drives, like floppy or cd drives.

There are several beep codes, below are a few examples listed:

Beep codes common to HP and Compaq Desktop PCs The following beep codes are common to many HP and Compaq desktop computers. Use these codes first before referring to the other code lists. NOTE: Not all codes are shown. Beeps Description 1 short beep and 1 long beep Memory problem 2 short beeps and 1 long beep (repeats 5 times) Unable to initialize video or video card required but not installed 3 short beeps and 1 long beep CPU configuration error or CPU type is not compatible The following beep codes are common to many HP and Compaq desktop computers that can occur while restoring, flashing or updating the BIOS : Beeps Description 1 short beep Legacy floppy drive or CD/DVD drive not detected 2 short beeps Floppy diskette or compact disc not detected 3 short beeps Unable to start flashing (such as when missing a utility or BIOS image) 4 short beeps Flashing failed (checksum error, corrupted image, etc.) 5 short beeps BIOS recovery successful Try working on this solution and see if you can get the computer to start. Below is a link to a troubleshooting page from Compaq for your computer. This can be a good reference as well.

Beep sound continus


I went to google and it seems like the beeps can be problems for different problems in the hardware, this is what one message says,  there are lots of computer beeping answers out there: 1 short beep is your BIOS saying "HELLO I'M OK" 

Standard Original IBM POST Error Codes 

1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 
2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen 
No beep Power supply or system board problem 
Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem 
Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 
1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 
1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 
1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 
3 long beeps keyboard card 

Each BIOS company has modified these codes over the years.
