Computer beeps


If you try to power on your computer and nothing happens but a bunch of beeps there is something you can do. The beeps actually mean something. To make sure you can hear the beeps check in the bios options. If there is an option for a silent boot you won't hear any beeps. If you hear one beep every time your computer starts then you don't have to worry about this.

If you want to check this setting refer to my other tip on how to enter bios and change boot settings.

If you try to boot your computer and nothing shows up on your monitor do these steps first.
1-Check all your cables in the back of the computer.
2-check your power source and power cord to the monitor
3-try another monitor if possible
4-If on a power bar try to turn off the power bar and reset the breaker

If you try to boot your computer and nothing happens and you hear beeps look at this website. The beeps you hear are actually telling you what is wrong. Look at the website by clocking on the link below and click on the computer beep codes link. If you want to scroll down past the link it will show you bios codes to enter the bios in your computer

Gateway GT5058 no post, no beeps - power supply is OK, hard drive spins up, fron panel LED's light up.


Power-down the PC.
Remove all of the RAM modules.
Power-up the PC.
You SHOULD hear a series of Beeps. This is the Motherboard complaining that there is no RAM installed....this is normal.
*IF* you do NOT hear any Beeping, then the Motherboard is bad and would need replacing.....however depending on the age of the PC, it is usually not cost effective to do this, and sometimes you can't find just a Motherboard for sale and have to buy a whole used PC (same make/model,) and put your HD into it.

Post back with what the above test showed you.

VA1703wb... Monitor beeps when I turn on the pc then goes black


Please read below and look at the pictures of failed VIEWSONIC nd othe monitor before try to DIY repair.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Data is not sent to the monitor


The first thing to do is to pay attention for "beep" when your press the power button (or the reset button) to turn the computer on or reboot it. The beeps that a PC makes tells you a lot about the state of your computer. I couldn't quote for you the exact beeps to listen for, but your manual for your motherboard may tell you. Different beep pattersn tell you what is wrong with a computer.

I think for many common motherboards it is something like 4 beeps to tell you the graphics card has failed. Don't quote me, but that is at least along the lines of how it works if not the exact number.

If you're getting no display after starting your computer make sure you hear one beep. Then, listen for other activity. If you're computer has a floppy drive, listen for the 'floppy seek'. Otherwise, listen for hard drive activity. If it sounds as though there's activity along those lines but still no signal/display on the monitor perhaps check the cable between your PC and the monitor. Never hurts to just make sure the monitor is turned on of course.

If your monitor is on, and the cables are connected securely I wold restart the computer again and check for the beeps. I would be certain to count them and check the manual. Your graphics card may have failed if you hear abnormal beeps (more than one as one is usually the healthy indicator). If you hear no beeps then the PC is not even getting in as far as testing it's devices and could quite possibly be a motherboard failure.

My computer crashed and now the monitor goes into power save mode


You said that you hear a series of beeps, if you hear this kind of sounds maybe there is a loose connection from the CPU. Try to remove the Memory and put it back again.

Monitor did not responding


When you first power on a computer it checks itself out for proper operation even before you see anything on the screen. This process is called Power On Self Test, as no video is yet displayed and moreover there may even be a video problem the computer sends out beeps over its internal speaker to indicate its status. Usually you will just hear one beep then the computer will "come to life", if however there are any problems you hear a series of beeps. For a description of these beeps and what they mean please click here. Hope this helps !!
