Question about Computers & Internet
Beeping sound on power up indicates a hardware problem with the PC. Depending on the sequence and number of beeps, this could indicate either a problem with the Video card and/or the memory. Initially, you can try removing both and clean the little gold contacts/pins with the use of a pencil eraser. Thereafter, re-seat them back to their appropriate slots and pls ensure that they are seated correctly. In some models, the video card is built-in to the motherboard and therefore the only user serviceable component would be the memory.
Should the cleaning be not corrective, then a replacement would be required.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
