The beep is more than likely a beep code (sounds stupid and obvious, but they're there for a reason).

What make/model is your machine? We can look up the code by make/model. That will diagnose your problem.

You possibly cracked your screen or caused the ribbon cable to disconnect when you dropped it and just can't see what the error codes are saying. Is probably asking you if you'd like to start in safe mode with the beeps but you can't see it with a cracked screen or disconnected ribbon cable. Take it to a repair shop for a diagnosis.

Sounds like you have a memory problem. Either a RAM module is defective & needs to be replaced, or the slot where the RAM module goes into is not making good contact between the motherboard & the memory module, & needs to be cleaned.

Try first cleaning the RAM module slot with a non-oily contact cleaner. Leave it to dry for few minutes then install the RAM module & test if the computer will turn on. If it does not, replace the RAM module with a working one & test again.

Hello

OK, depending on the bois version you have, the problem is either your ram modules, or your video card.

I will suggest that you start by taking out the ram module and see if the beeping persists.

If not, you will need to buy new ram.

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

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,

My compaq presario acts like it wants to come on and then the screen goes black. Help


Most of the time, when a computer begins to "start", but than shuts its-self off, the processor fan has failed. But, it could be the hard drive, or RAM. If the computer makes some beeping noises when it starts up, those can be the codes you need to help decide what exactly is wrong. Next time you start the computer, listen for the beep codes. If you get more than one short beep, than make a note how many, and how long the beeps were. Than you need to get online, and search out their meaning. Just type in computer beep codes.

HP dv6000 Laptop screen only starts up 1/4th of the time


The first issue you had with one long beeps and two short beeps is a memory module error. see the following HP website:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01732674&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1842155 I would replace the memory chips and try again. If you have more than one chip try booting with one at a time to discover that one of them may be bad.

The beep patterns always tell you what the problem is, but it depends on what kind of BIOS is in your computer. You can take a look here, maybe you find what is the problem with your machine: http://www.pchell.com/hardware/beepcodes.shtml
