    6 beeps what dose it means


    Dell beep codes:

    If your computer beeps during start-up:
    Run Dell Diagnostics to identify a more serious cause.

    Beep Codes Your computer might emit a series of beeps during start-up if the monitor cannot display errors or problems. This series of beeps, called a beep code, identifies a problem. One possible beep code (code 1-3-1) consists of one beep, a burst of three beeps, and then one beep. This beep code tells you that the computer encountered a memory problem.
    If your computer beeps during start-up:
    Dell Diagnostics to identify a more serious cause.

    On startup there is 4 beeps then 2 then nothing. The laptop belongs to my grandouther.the power coard was frade,so my guess is that's where the problem started.


    Beep codes are used by the BIOS during the POST to report certain initial system errors.
    If you're hearing beep codes after you turn your computer on, it typically means that the system has encountered some kind of problem before it was able to display any kind of error information on the monitor.
    Follow the steps below to determine what system problem the beep code is representing.
    Difficulty: Average Time Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours depending on the cause of the beep code Here's How:
    1. Power on the computer or restart it if it's already on.
    2. Listen very carefully to the beep codes that sound when the computer begins to boot.
      Restart your computer if you need to hear the beeping again. You're not likely to make whatever problem you have worse by restarting a few times.
    3. Write down, in whatever way makes sense to you, how the beeps sound.
      Important: Pay close attention to the number of beeps, if the beeps are long or short and if the beeping repeats or not. There is a big difference between a "beep-beep-beep" beep code and a "beep-beep" beep code.
      This is all important information that will help determine what issue the beep codes are representing.
    4. What steps you take to solve a particular beep code will differ depending on the BIOS manufacturer.
      Choose the correct beep code troubleshooting guide below based on your motherboard's BIOS manufacturer:

    When i start my computer it makes a loud beeping noise it is a acer aspire4520


    What you are hearing is probably a BIOS beep code.

    Beep codes are a bit like Morse code, and are used to indicate certain faults with the hardware.

    The codes change from manufacturer to manufacturer, but generally speaking one beep = System OK, so if your PC is starting up normally and you have no other problems there is nothing to worry about!

    Hope this helps,
