What brand the laptop is?
How many beeps are short and long and in what sequence?
Do you receive any error?
When the computer starts it checks its hardware and proceeds to boot the OS (windows). If it finds a hardware fault it will beep a code and stop there. The beep code may depend on the fault itself (video, memory, etc) and BIOS brand (Phoenix, American Megatrends, etc). You can try entering the BIOS by holding the or keys as soon as you turn it on for about 5 secs while it shows the first logo on screen. Then in BIOS you can see whats the brand of the BIOS is and with that info search for the beeping codes for that BIOS brand. That will say what kind of fault the unit is having. I hope this works. Im new in this FixYa so I dont know if you can reply me with the answers.

Computer beeps but won't boot


if the beep is continuous it is likely the ram modules have dislodged.
however if it is just the normal short beep you get every time the computer starts normally, then it is just the post beep this simply indicates that the hardware has passed the Power On Self Test or POST for short. this would suggest the issue is windows related more so then hardware related, i would try using a windows 7 recovery or pe disk to boot it from.

T2865 Starts to boot but freezes at diff.stages- no beeps


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.
Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'

A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next

Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.

Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.

The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.
Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot. After reboot your problem should be resolved.

My PC auto matically restart when turning it on


The beep you hear is your BIOS trying to alert you to an error in the POST (power on self test) routine. Without knowing the manufacturer of your motherboard one can't be certain what the beeps indicate...see this link for more info: http://www.5starsupport.com/info/beep_codes.htm
It's possible you have some kind of infestation, and it's possible there's something more systemic, but without knowing the make and model of your system I couldn't say.
Sometimes three beeps indicates a keyboard error...you could try another keyboard or unplug yours and see if it will boot up "normally" without it.
Otherwise, report back with some more info and we'll take it from there.

Computer freezes on boot up


make sure the mouse and keyboard are in right connections...if you look closely youll see icons next to ports.
try without mouse at first start up ,load windows and use key with windows logo on it to access start and scroll to shutdown tab and restart...plug in the mouse before restart.
if logo tab isnt assigned press ctrl + esc to access start menu.

Does your computer make the beeping sounds on boot up. If so, this means that a drive is corrupt and it's not loading the system driver files or is not seeing your hardware to boot up..

Are you running windows xp?

Have you tried running a system repair using your windows xp cd?
That works by putting in your xp cd...booting to the cd....the first window you come too will ask you the basic, agree to terms, press f8 to agree...then to the next screen.

There it will have 2 options...install a fresh copy of windows
Repair a version of windows...choose repair

Allow the repair to finish...and restart....if the repair was successful, your computer will restart normally...

Let me know if this works.....and how many beeps you are getting
