I have a Acer Verton E430 Desktop. Suddenly upon restart after the initial beep and Acer splash screen returns to restart with one short beep and process continues on and on.. Advise how to solve.


One short beep can be DRAM refresh failure.
  1. Remove RAM memory, Graphics card, other Plug-in cards, and Drive cables from your mainboard.
    Only CPU + Fan + Power cable are installed on the mainboard.
  2. Power on the PC, and listen to the beeps:
    • no beeps => Power supply, CPU, mainboard or BIOS is most likely defective.
    • some beeps => remember the beeps and next step.

  3. Power off the PC, and insert the RAM memory.
  4. Power on the PC, and listen to the beeps:
    • no beeps => RAM incorrectly installed.
    • same beeps as before => RAM is most likely defective.
    • beeps have changed => next step.

Try resetting the system.
1. Take out all your RAM
2. Find COSMOS Battery and take it out
3. Restart your pc with the above mentioned not inserted. (Your PC should beep).
4. Switch off PC and replace the above mentioned and RESTART.

Laptop computer will not power up. using power cord and keeps beeping three times every time when powering up.cleaned ram contacts and reseated these. still no change!


Suggest Anti-Static Procedures need to be followed, laptop opened up, and cooling system cleaned.

Also suggest replacing Thermal Paste on Processor, and Thermal Pad on graphics chipset. (Piece of small copper sheet would be better)

What is the Dell's model name and model number?
Bottom of laptop.

Repeating beep in my hp G60 laptop i changed ram but it didnt stop and but it stops when laptop loads windows


hi
repeat beeps is definitely a RAM module issue. ry reseating (installing) one RAM at a time... assuming you have two module sticks. try inserting one only, boot up system and see if it works without beep issue. if it doesnt beep, remove that module and reseat the second one alone. boot up system. if that one works as well, then these two modules are NOT the same maker, part number.
if they both work independantly, then the RAM together are not compatible. both RAM modules must be identical (maker, part number, etc) to avoid issues

hope this works.. please send me 4 thumbs up

When it turns on it beeps several times and stops for a moment and then starts beeping again nothing comes up on the screen


By the way regarding this issue of beeping this is the RAM problem. Open your IBM unit and check the RAM maybe the RAM are clogged by dust. You need to clean the RAM, after you clean the RAM clean also the RAM socket. Insert the RAM back to the unit and try to turn it on if there will be a beeping problem. If the problem still occur try to use another RAM to diagnose if the RAM is faulty.

Computer turns on and beeps


Have you recently changed any hardware or BIOS settings? Is it one beep for 8 seconds or 8 beeps? If it's 8 beeps then that indicates a bad video card. If you are not using the on board video then try re-seating the video board or try a different video board.

I have thinkcenter machine when i boot the machine continous beep is originating first small beep and then continous beep and behave like this and system does not boot please suggest


Yes those beeps are a beep code. The way it is currently beeping means you have a bad RAM stick. Open case and make sure the RAM is seated correctly, sometimes it can come loose. You can also take one stick out if you have two and reboot. If it does it again then take that RAM out and replace it with the one you took out. If it still beeps then you need to buy new RAM. That will correct the problem.

You could try re-seating your ram and your video card if applicable.
2 beeps generally upon post depending on the bios is video or unstable ram.
Depending on how many sticks you have on the board try re-seating them if that doesn't work diagnose the faulty stick by putting them in 1 at a time.
Hope this helps
