In the manual of the computer, at the BIOS section, there should a table with what each type of beeping sound means ... (probably something got busted ...)

Beeping sound when starting


Usually when you first turn the power on ... it's usual to hear a couple of beeping sounds . And then, you may hear whirling/clicking sounds when your disk starts up (rotating) and your CD/DVD drive starts up, etc.. Then the monitor/screen lights up and starts to show the operating system (e.g. Windows) panel ... as it starts up.

If your system just beeps ... and beeps ... and beeps... and nothing else happens, the screen doesn't light up and show anything (for a few minutes), it likely the system is not starting up properly.

If you can clarify what actually happens, maybe I can offer more suggestions/information to help.

BEEP ON START UP ,BLANK SCREEN


3 long beeps normally indicate defective memory or loose memory on DIMM so take out and insert it again or you need to replace with new memory module. Where as fast beeping indicates Graphics error and need to change the graphic card

If this dont fix please tell me
Best Luck!
