    Jahzenvinci,

    It sounds like your computer is using "beep codes". If you can tell us the Make/Model of the computer and/or motherboard, we can try to determine what the code means for you.

    Thanks.

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.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive make sure the connections are secure including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your
((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

These are BIOS beeps codes you are hearing. BIOS beep codes tells you if there is a hardware problem in the PC. Either one of the components connection got loose or a hardware failed. One long and one short beep tells a Motherboard issue. Disconnect recently added hardware. You can also try reseating the RAM modules and other PC components.

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.

Acer aspire 9300 black screen (display adapter)


I have been fixing computers that has long beeps and short ones. It is usually attributed to memory problem connection. Open the memory compartment at the back of the PC then detach the memory card. Clean with cloth softly enough not to destroy the circuit board or a pencil eraser to clean-up dust that caused the connection blockade. Reconnect after cleaning.

1 short beep and 1 long beep when power button is pressed.


These sounds are known as BIOS beep codes. They indicate an error with your system. Traditionally, 1 long and 1 short indicates a system board problem.
If you google bios beep codes, you will be able to find the codes that relate to your Bios, or motherboard.
Backup your files. Your computer is trying to tell you something.

I think the msg you are seeing is just the default monitor message when there is no video to display. Here is a list of common beep codes: Are you getting the one long beep at each restart?

Black screen have tried changing outputs but still black screen.


check for loose video connectors, power cables (of your monitor). Also try to turn off your computer by pressing and holding the power button. (you know your computer is off if it doesn't make any sound or vibration)
if all else fails, power up your computer and listen for a tone/beep sound. If there is a long beep sound probably your memory (RAM) is loose, defective or faulty. If you hear a tone/beep in a patern (like long-short-long, or any other pattern) then probably your VIDEO CARD is loose, defective or faulty.

Black screen


The beeps are probably BIOS beep error codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the computer communicates computer problems that occur early in the startup processes. It's likely the problem isn't your monitor but something in your computer box itself. If you can tell us what the pattern is we can start diagnosing your problem. We'll also need to know the manufacturers name, the specific model computer you have and what operating system you are running.
