Beeps signal a hardware fault. To find out which part is faulty (usually it's the memory) you must start to test the pc by replacing parts one at a time until the beep stops.

Continous beep every 6 seconds


There is either a problem with your memory or your BIOS settings. Did you recently change any settings in your BIOS? If so try resetting it. You may refer to the motherboard user Guide for help regarding resetting your BIOS/CMOS settings. If you cant find it you may also try to remove the CMOS battery on your motherboard for a few hours and then connect it back this should have reset your BIOS.

If you are sure you havent changed any settings then there may be a problem with your RAM or the slot in which the RAM is connected. Check it by using a spare slot on your comp. If it does nt work then you may have to replace your system RAM.
