    Beeps are 3-1 on startup. Then system shows press to continue or to enter setup. Only works.

    Thanks--probably 'cause it was a premium request in the first place?
    Otherwise, why would an answer suddenly not be free?

    Just wondering.

    Hmmm. Have to ask Lauren about that. I was reading the posts for that poor guy. Sheesh! Talk about a lot of varied stuff. I even had trouble following some of the logic that was posted, and the user seemed to be a relative newbie. I run into that problem all the time in my business and it's usually quite simple to solve.

Hey ByteGuy, Saw your solution to a premium where you asked the customer to contact you with ask me, I have to admit that was a good way to communicate before but now, if you go ahead and click ask me on my profile, you will find that it takes you to a 9.99 and 19.99 usd page instead of a free request.

Just a heads up.

Thanks,
Ekse

    Just saying that the request feature seems to be removed, and if you want to send a request or a ask me to another person, you would have to pay for it, but I think it will just turn into a premium question right away. So that feature is out right now.

How do I fix an issue PC Bios not recognizing memory on HP Pavilion a6228x PC?


The beeps are a bios error code. Sounds to me like a power supply or motherboard got toasted. Refer to owners manual what the beeps mean.(how many, how far apart. Longs and short beeps etc are all codes)

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.

Pc beeps and will not come up


The beeps you are receiving are called "BIOS beep codes." You can look what the beep code indicates from here for HP:
