HI there,

You might want to review the page at the link below. If you're just getting the beep code and no boot up I feel fairly sure you have a serious hardware failure of a majot motherboard component (CPU or Video card possible).

Regards,

Marcus

SOURCE: Hi we have a HP

You did not mention which model (or BIOS) you have, so all I can do now is to point you to HP's support page (link is here), which explains the different beep codes.
Some good solutions are also mentioned here.
Usually it is a sign that there is a hardware failure and you should carefully check your hardware components - if you can't do it yourself, you have to find someone who knows about it.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Dell inspiron 1545 14 beeps (more details inside).


This indicates a motherboard issue, sub out the ram memory one at a time, test each as you go, if no change! The motherboard will need to be replaced, or the laptop.

THE RED LIGHT IS ON AND BEEPS EVERY MINUTE


What motherboard do you have? If you don't know, provice make and model of your system and maybe we can find out that way. Is it one long beep? Are there any other beeps and/or a sequence. A good place to start and alot of times, depending on your bios, 1 to 3 beeps means a problem with the RAM(memory). If you have more than 1 stick, you can pull them out, restart and if the beep is the same, you've probably found your culprit. You can then insert one at a time in one of your slots, then restart. If this works, you've found a good stick. If not, try another slot and restart, etc. Try all sticks in all slots.

Computer will not start


It all depends how many beeps there were.
From http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12253_div/12253_div.HTML
Diagnostic LED Explanation Table Number of 1-second red LED blinks followed by 2-second pause, then repeats:
2-processor thermal protection activated
3-processor not installed
4-power supply failure
5-memory error
6-video error
7-PCA failure (ROM detected failure prior to video)
8-invalid ROM, bootblock recover mode

I have only really come across 4 beeps = order new Power Supply or 5 Beeps = reseat the memory and hope it works

When I go to turn on the computer, it just makes a beeping sound.


Beeping sound leting you something is wrong with some hardware. As for what,, listin to the beeps.. also depends on motherboard... here is a link http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml

But best way is to open up machine and make sure all the hardware is hooked up tight. If that does work look at the code list then go from there.

Computer problem


during these beeps there should be pause between them at some point...in other words you may get 2 beeps/pause/1beep/pause/2 beeps noting the number of beeps and where the pauses are will help. From what you are describing and without more info it sounds as if you are describing beep codes, and they generally can give us a lot of information.

Beeps coming from over by the glove box after turning engine off.


the beeps are an airbag trouble code, that code is for the following:
In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

If your computer is beeping at you, 9 times out of 10 its going to be an issue with the memory or video. (more often the memory) Try re-seating both. If your still hearing the beep fest, below is a list of the most common beeps and what they refer to. This will help you to find out what needs replacing.

Long beep followed by 3 sequential short beeps. This issue is linked to your Graphic card configurations
Short beep followed by three sequential long beeps You are facing a system memory problem
Beep- PAUSE- Beep- PAUSE- Two sequential beeps This error is linked to your CPU
Three beeps-PAUSE-Three beeps-PAUSE-Four beeps You have an issue with the video memory
Three beeps-PAUSE-Four beeps-PAUSE-Beep This is linked to an error with your Graphic Card
Four beeps-PAUSE-Three beeps-PAUSE-Beep You have a system memory problem
Five short beeps You are facing a problem with your CPU
Long constant beeps It’s a system memory problem
Short constant and high-pitched beeps The temperature of your CPU is too high
