These beeps you are hearing are warning beeps. The first thing i would try is if you have 2 ram sticks in take the one out and boot up if it still beeps put the ram back in and remove the other one. Or it could be dust on your ram or in the slot so take a paint brush and lightly dust the ram and the slot.

The other possibility is your cpu over heating the you will need to take the heatsink and fan off and dust it out as the dust could be blocking the air flow thus over heating your cpu.

My laptop won't start... please


Not sure but it sounds like the hard drive is causing the problem. Lap tops are set up so that any problems with them they shut down, and a bad hard drive will shut you down the way you are describing. The only test i know for this is to remove the hard drive and see if you can get the computer to at least boot. If you can with no hard drive then it usually means the drive has failed. Not sure if this will help, but hope it helps.

Alarm wont shut off and lights keep flashing


This can be very simple look for alarm brain and unplug the brain, this vehicle should start. if it doesn't the look for valet switch it usually mounted under dash or on kick panel next to hood lever or close to where clutch pedal will be, Turn Ignition ON and in ON position flip switch the led light should stay on steady then the vehicle will start. If None of this works then you will have to take panel under steering column down and disconnect complete alarm system. Disconnect wires one ar a time and re-join them with the correct ones. It's NOT hard to do, there will be spliced into ignition wires.To do this you should disconnect positive lead on battery pole to stop the annoying noise until you are done. Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

SimpleTech 320GB Hard Drive- unable to detect the device


I had a similar problem with a SimpleTech 250g Pininfarina USB drive.
I went through the drivers, the power supply, the USB cables, and the various
computers, USB cards and Operating systems.
Finally I opened the case and found the disk drive was mounted too far
forward, causing the IDE connector to barely touch. I loosened the mount screws,
slid the drive back towards the connector, tightened everything down and it works.
