In my experience with this type of issue it can mean your hard drive is dead or something is wrong with your RAM if you have a spare hard drive on hand and ram replace the hard drive and ram and see if it fixes your problem

My Toshiba X200 doesn't show any image.I've bought a new motherboard, but still no image appears.The tech that told that the problem was with the motherboard (that was supposed to be burned).Now he tells...


enable what? BIPS? never heard of it in the last 10 years, are you sure you are dealing with a PC tech there?!


Have you tested that the RAM on the computer IS OK?
Have you tested that the Video card on the machine is OK?

has any real troubleshooting been done on the machine?


if he just told you the motherboard was burned without doing any other testing you are dealing with a fraud.

When I start my computer its only says bip bip bip


Hi,

Three beeps indicates that there is a memory error. Take the system memory from the motherboard and clean the brass contacts on the memory and also clean slots that the memory clips into. Make sure you clean all of the dust away from them.

Put the memory back into the slots and try turning the computer on. If you have more than one memory module put them back one by one turning the computer on after each try.
If it still won't switch on and you get the beeps you will be looking at new memory for the computer.


Regards.

Satilite 1800 3 beeps no boot 1 long 2 short


That is a memory error. Remove and reseat the memory in your computer. If the error persists and you have more than 1 stick, try each stick separately to find the faulty unit. If you only have one stick, then the memory will need to be replaced.

Non si vede niente dal monitor


tre bip lunghi potrebbe essere un problema della tastiera.
Nessun bip = difetto di alimentazione, problema alla CPU o alla scheda madre, periferiche in blocco.
* Un bip = tutto funziona normalmente.
* Due bip = errore POST/CMOS.
* Un bip lungo ed uno breve = problema con la scheda madre.
* Un bip lungo e due brevi = problema video.
* Un bip lungo e tre brevi = problema video.
* Tre bip lunghi = errore tastiera.
* Lunghi bip ripetuti = errore di memoria.
* Brevi bip ripetuti = difetto di alimentazione, problema alla scheda madre.
* Continui alti e bassi bip = surriscaldamento CPU.

From your problem description, it sounds like a corrupt BIOS and or a failing motherboard.

Due to the system age, I'd say cut your losses, salvage what drives are usable, and get a new (or newer) system

Asrock K7S41GX "NEW" does not work :bip-bip-bip


3 beeps is a memory error. remove the memory and put it in the first slot.

Toshiba Satellite Pro m40 Will not bootup


Yes. Could be a clue to a hardware issue. There are different manufacturers of BIOS... some differences in what the codes mean.

Is it 4 short beeps or a combination of short and long?

A reference for the codes:

Try removing and re-seating your memory card.
