The beeping sound is the post system searching for your hard drive and other connected devices
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
good luck

Toshiba will not boot


It needs those things to start up. If you reinstalled them in the machine and it won't start up you need to check some things:
Does the screen flicker when you power it on or does it stay completely black? If it stays completely black, then the connection from the screen to the computer itself is lost. Normally it is caused by a broken cable.

If the screen flickers and then goes black, then check the following:
Does it beep at you? If it does, then the amount of beeps is important. It will state in the users manual what that numbers mean.
If it doesn't beep, then my best guess would be that there is something wrong with the power distribution in the machine.

My pc boots, the the screen is completely black.


If you can see the bios screen at the boot . After that your screen is black.
The OS might be corrupted I suggest you to reinstall the OS by using the re-installation Disc.

If you are getting any beep sound then the error codes of one long beep & 2 short beep Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.


If you don't see the bios screen & beeps, there might be problem with the screen or the VGA chip in the motherboard.

If so I suggest you to contact the service center near by.


I am sure this will be helpful for you.

Regarding with problem basically some part their failed. You need to check the RAM and HDD. Reset the CMOS battery remove the CMOS jamper with in 5 seconds and put it back. If you loss the first try you also recovery, to recover load the windows CD and boot up repair the windows until it is done. Good luck!

3 beeps then black screen after boot


Depending upon the BIOS manufacturer, 3 beeps usually mean you have RAM problems, the RAM may need reseating to get proper electrical contact or the RAM may be faulty. Reseat the RAM module/s then reboot the computer. If this didn't solve the problem, remove the RAM and insert it into another computer to test the RAM, if this is not possible, take it to your friendly computer shop and get them to test it for you.

When I turn it on I get three beeps and nothing else


Hi,

The 3 beeps are correct diagnosis for the screen problems.

reboot, keep tapping F8, till you get to
the start up screen ( black dos screen )

Try the last known good first at the top, let it roll.

If this fails, try safe mode, let it boot up, then try a system restore,
start,all progz, accessories,system tools,system restore, try go back in time.

If you cannot get into the "black" start up screen at all, your video card, has failed.

because you should get minimum of VGA graphics in safe mode.

if you do, then the video driver is corrupted and needs updating

Regards
Richard.
