I'd check your CMOS Battery on the ASRock Motherboard. Its a button cell battery. Might be completely dead. If it is go to your local electronics store and get a new battery. Bring the old one for comparison.

The link above provides the specs and downloads for your board. Beeps usually indictate that there is a problem with the board. The downloads listed are for win XP and 2000. If you have either of these o/s, you may want to uninstall prior version of software and download new software. In the event thatthis doesn't work you may want to do a "system restore" or reinstall original software you got with the board.

3 short beeps is a Main Memory Read/Write Test Error.
This means that your RAM is either seated improperly (incorrectly placed in slot) or is broken. You can download a MemoryTest here (http://www.memtest86.com/) which can be burned to a cd/dvd and used to start up your computer. It will test to see if the RAM is functioning incorrectly.
Hope this helps. If you would like additional assistance, I'd be glad to help you further.

3 log beeps on power on


Gigabyte doesn't list 3 long beeps as an error code, so I'm not sure if you're actually getting 3 short beeps or maybe 1 long and 2 short or... But, for reference, Gigabyte's error code list is as follows (depending on whether you have an AWARD BIOS or an AMI):

(AWARD BIOS)
1 short beep: System normal
2 short beep: CMOS Error
1 long beep and 1 short beep: Memory error
1 long beep and 2 short beep: Graphic card error
1 long beep and 3 short beep: AGP error
1 long beep and 9 short beep: Memory Error
Continuous long beep: Memory not correctly installed
Continuous short beep: Power supply unit failed

(AMI BIOS)
1 short beep: Memory Error
2 short beep: Memory parity check error.
3 short beep: Basic memory 64K address check error
4 short beep: Real Time Clock malfunction .
5 short beep: CPU error
6 short beep: Keyboard error
7 short beep: CPU interruption error
8 short beep: Graphic card error
9 short beep: Memory error
10 short beep: CMOS error
11 short beep: CPU cache memory malfunction

It might not be a lot of help, but it's somewhere to start... and at least this way you'll know what to be listening for.

F2 & F3


I'm going to take a stab and assume the laptop is beeping after you start it up... if it is this is called a beep code, its telling you something is wrong with it or something has changed. F2 or F3 will probably take you into its BIOS or give you access to the boot order. When I used to upgrade memory in dell latitudes it would beep on boot and say something to the effect of 'amount of system memory has changed, press F1 to continue or F2 for bios'. If you made changes to the laptop's physical components it is basically telling you something has changed and wants you to go into its BIOS to confirm. If you have done nothing to do and its beeping on boot, then its telling you there's something wrong. You will be to determine the make and model of the laptop and then obtain its service manual to look up what the beep codes indicate... there are sort of like morse code, 2 beeps means this, 3 beeps means that etc. What is the make and model and did you do anything to do (i.e. upgrade memory) before this started happening?

THE RED LIGHT IS ON AND BEEPS EVERY MINUTE


What motherboard do you have? If you don't know, provice make and model of your system and maybe we can find out that way. Is it one long beep? Are there any other beeps and/or a sequence. A good place to start and alot of times, depending on your bios, 1 to 3 beeps means a problem with the RAM(memory). If you have more than 1 stick, you can pull them out, restart and if the beep is the same, you've probably found your culprit. You can then insert one at a time in one of your slots, then restart. If this works, you've found a good stick. If not, try another slot and restart, etc. Try all sticks in all slots.

IT is either one of three things. 
  1. keyboard missing; check it's plugged in.
  2. graphics card; check that it has not been dislodged and is seated properly.
  3. memory. Are the memory cards properly seated?

I Could not logon to the system


If the 2 beeps were together, then it is a check sum or memory problem. When it boots enter the bios setup(F2) and check the system time and date (located in 'Standard cmos Settings') to see if it is correct, as this is a good indicator of a flat cmos battery (large type watch battery.) If time and date is incorrect replace battery, if ok turn off pc and try re-setting the bios by putting the jumper on the 'JBAT1' terminal on the motherboard on pins 1-2 ont pins 2-3 then back onto 1-2; then boot pc back up and go back into the bios, set the date and time in 'Standard Cmos Settings' and then look on main bios menu for 'LOAD BIOS DEFAULTS' or similair If non of above works, maybe you have upgraded the memory, remove it and try again with original memory stick. Hope this is of some help
