Moniter did not turn on and gave beep sound


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM and Cmos battery are securely seated


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps you

I have an acer aspire M5100 and when you turn on the comp, the fan works, and it seems like the computer is trying to boot up, however there is a beeping that lasts for 2ish seconds, followed by a 5 second...


it sounds like the ram is not being detected.
what you can do is power the unit down and remove your ram module,
**static is a big issue so make sure you are not on carpets or in static clothing and always remember to be touching the compurer case when ever you venture inside to discharge any stray static **** in you**
the best way to clean the memory module is with a pen eraser, what you clean is the little copper pins at the base of the module
if you need a visual guide please email ne

Computer powers on, no beep, monitor is blank


open the tower, on the mother board you will find the RAM card approx 6 inches long, take out the card and restart the comp, you should get the beeping sound and the mother board is fine, if no beep that indicates the motherboard has gone bad.
place the ram card properly into the same slot and then restart the computer. NOTE while putting your hand into the comp components always make sure that the pwr cord is pulled out or else you will get shock.
also check the cord at the back of the harddrive should be fixed properly. take it out and refix it at both ends . probable cause is there is some loose connection of the cord or the RAM.

My d530 minitower powers off unexpectedly and red lights starts to blink on System's LED//


Hi Kindly let me know how many times the red light blinks
Condition Code Service Actions Processor thermal protection activated. Power LED blinks red twice, once a second, followed by a two second pause.
  1. Make sure the computer air vents are not blocked and that the cooling fan is running.
  2. Open the hood, press the power button, and see if the processor fan spins. If the fan is not spinning, make sure the fan cable is plugged into the cable header on the system board, and that the fan is properly installed and seated.
  3. If the fan is plugged in and seated properly, but is still not spinning, replace the processor fan.
  4. Reseat the processor heatsink and make sure the fan assembly is attached to the heatsink properly.
Processor is not installed. Power LED blinks red three times, once a second, followed by a two second pause.
NOTE: This condition indicates a missing or improperly installed processor, not a defective one.

Make sure there is a processor in the system. Reseat the processor and verify that it is installed properly. Power failure (power supply is overloaded) Power LED blinks red four times, once a second, followed by a two second pause.
  1. Check the voltage selector, located on the rear of the power supply, is set to the correct voltage (the correct setting depends on the region).
  2. Open the hood and make sure the 4-wire power supply cable is fully connected to the power connector on the system board.
  3. Check if a device is causing the problem by removing all attached devices (such as disk drives and expansion cards), then power on the system. If the system enters POST, power off and replace one device at a time, repeating the procedure until the system power failure reoccurs. Replace the device that caused the failure, then replace each of the other devices and confirm that they are functioning properly.
  4. If you cannot isolate the failure to a specific device in the previous step, replace the power supply. **
  5. Replace the system board.*
Pre-video memory error. Power LED blinks red five times, once a second, followed by a two second pause, and five simultaneous beeps are sounded
  1. Reseat the DIMMs in the memory slots on the system board, then power on the system.
  2. Replace the DIMMs one at a time to isolate the faulty module.
  3. Replace 3rd-party memory with HP memory.
  4. Replace the system board.*
Pre-video graphics error. Power LED blinks red six times, once every second, followed by a two second pause, and six simultaneous beeps are sounded. For systems with a graphic card:

  1. Reseat the graphics card and then power on the system.
  2. Replace the graphics card.
  3. Replace the system board.*


For systems with integrated (on-board) graphics, replace the system board. PCA (system board) failure. ROM detected failure prior to video. Power LED blinks red seven times, once a second, followed by a two second pause, and seven simultaneous beeps are sounded. Replace the system board. Invalid ROM based on bad checksum Power LED blinks red eight times, once a second, followed by a two second pause, and eight simultaneous beeps are sounded.
  1. Reflash the ROM using a ROMPaq diskette.
  2. Replace the system board.*
System does not power on. No beeps or blinks since the system is not functioning. Press and hold the power button for less than four seconds. Perform the following steps depending on whether the hard drive LED turns green.

If the hard drive LED turns green, then:

  1. Make sure the voltage selector (which is located on the back of the power supply) is set to the correct voltage for your region.
  2. Remove the expansion cards one at a time until the 3.3V auxiliary light on the system board turns on. If removing a card turns the light on, replace the card and then see if the system works.
  3. Replace the system board.*


If the hard drive LED does not turn green, then:

  1. Make sure the computer is plugged into a functioning AC power outlet.
  2. Open the hood and make sure the power button is securely fastened in the power harness and that the harness is connected properly to the power connector on the system board. In other words, make sure that the power button is making contact with the power circuit.
  3. Make sure the power supply cables are connected properly to the power connectors on the system board.
  4. Check to see if the 3.3V auxiliary light on the system board is not turned on, replace the power supply. **
  5. Replace the system board.*

Beeping emachine desktop won't turn on


Hi shyguy,

Before I address your issue, I figured you ought to know:

Buying an emachine is one of the worst moves a consumer can make. Why? because despite the fact that they are cheap, they frequently have problems, which can take money out of your pocket. Not only that, but they can be a pain in the *** in general. The old saying "You get what you pay for" should certainly be followed to some degree when purchasing a computer.

Now that I got that out of the way, on to your problem. I have a feeling that your motherboard might be shot. Before I have you think that, I want you to see if you can open it up and check to make sure your RAM is seated in the slot properly. If that doesn't work, then I think your motherboard is most likely gone.

If you need any more assistance, I'd be glad to try and lend a hand. You can e-mail me at perdue1202@yahoo.com

Good Luck.

Repetitive beeping sound on startup - no pc response


Remove the memory chip. It was probably either not installed properly or is not compatible with your PC. That should fix your problem.

Constant beeping and will not re-boot


Question- the beeping, is it short (1 second beeps) or long (2 or more seconds) and how many before it stops? or doesn't it? does it have any rhythm? The beeps correlate to some hardware problem, if you want to check the beeps yourself, just google "Bios beeps" and it will bring up a table of what the beeps mean.
