No sound but it beeps

I have lost all sound from computer except for a beep. I updated my realtec driver, but it doesn't work.

I had soundmax that was deleted and I really don't know which problem is causing the sound loss.

Obviously the speakers still work because of the error beep. The little speaker icon on my lower toolbar is gone as well.

How do I fix this problem

Acer aspire long ans short beep error


1 long, 1 short beep : System board problem
1 long, 2 short beeps: Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps: Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA)
3 long beeps : keyboard card


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.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated

on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in.


Test all power and data leads that attach from Motherboard to your Hard Drive IDE SATA

Make sure they have a secure dust free connections if its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail


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


Restart your computer the found new hardware wizard should activate

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 and floppy drive have secure Make sure the connections and are not faulty 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 so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.

Also check the Keyboard for secure dust free connection ps2 and or usb.

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll through devices if you see a yellow Question / Exclamation ? ! or a Red X a new driver will need to be installed / updated.

Right click to update driver.

If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it.

Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours

This is a free driver solutions.


This will automatically search for and find the correct driver

you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.


Hope this helps.

Installation of audiophile 192


Here is a list computer beeps and what they mean.

  • No Beeps: Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals
  • One Beep: Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine
  • Two Beeps: POST/CMOS Error
  • One Long Beep, One Short Beep: Motherboard Problem
  • One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps: Video Problem
  • One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps: Video Problem
  • Three Long Beeps: Keyboard Error
  • Repeated Long Beeps: Memory Error
  • Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps: CPU Overheating


Most times the beeping is caused by a bad/loose connection somewhere or card not seated properly.
Try disconnecting and reconnecting everything again. Make sure that all the power plugs are connected properly even if you didn't mess with them. Moving things around can sometimes be enough to give you the "BEEPS". ";-}


If you are still having much beeping and no computing you can try my personal favorite.

Start first with verbal threats. Next move to a second floor window and, while you explain whats going to happen if it doesn't knock it off, open the window.

If that fails give it the pitch.
Believe it or not I have used this technique and after reassembly and repair.....No more beep.

I hope this helps but if not let me know and we will try something else.

I have an HP Pavillion m9600t with Windows 7. Sometimes when i try to play games the sound crackles and progressively gets worse until the computer freezes. Any thoughts?


This seems to be a problem more with Realtec onboard sound than with a stand alone soundcard. You can try either updating the Realtec driver or using the generic windows driver and forget using the realtec functions. But with my computer the only true fix was to disable onboard sound and install a soundcard. Hope this helps.

Abit nf8-v keeps beeping when turned on. no video


How is the beep sounds? Long beep and three short beep or one (-...) or all long beep?
For the first, usualy the VGA connector is not correctly seated, so the motherboard can say it has no output device and beeping.
The last is usually memory problem. Try, unplug your memory board and replug it again, make sure that it is correctly seated.

I get a loud beep on my laptop but cant hear anything else


There is a beep system in all PC's
One quick been means the computer is OK when starting.
one long continuous beep is defined as :
' Power Supply or System Board / Keyboard stuck '

Note: Alternately it could be a Memory module
However it's more likely that it's the above

If you check those two things, you are likely to find the culprit.
If not, you need to post your BIOS and
