    A single beep means your motherboard's bios has loaded and the preboot self check reports all is ok. Why at this point your screen freezes may be related to your hard drive as it freezes after the Bios self check is okay. This is the same point the Windows environment gets the data passed off from the Bios.

    Normally, you don't want to have any add ons attached to your pc until the OS is finished loading and is installed successfully.

    What pin locater are you referring to?

Try to reset the BIOS to default either take the M/board battery out for at least 1 hour reinsert battery and try or
On M/board will be writing with reset bios or similar usually a small 2 pin connector with a jumper on 1 pin connect jumper over both pins remove jumper refit over 1 pin and reboot
If 3 pin setup remove jumper and fit over middle pin and the one it was not on replace back to how it was and boot computer

No picture, only 37pfl

The chirp or beep is a indication of a short on a line with fairly high voltage, over in most cases 100 volts DC.

Time to decide if you want to fix it (I would not as boards are rather expensive for this brand) by having a shop look at it OR retire/recycle it---average life on these sets (any brand) is about 4 years.

Blank screen and continuous beeps when computor starts up

Count the beeps, they tell the technician what is going on. Normally that is a pattern to the beeps such as (3 long beeps, 1 long beep followed by two short beeps).

Does the laptop post anything on the screen when you hit the power button or does it immediately start beeping?

Just off the top of my head I would think you've got a memory issue. It could be a Video Card issue too.

What brand and model is your laptop?

Lets, try the memory tests just in case:

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I keep getting a beep when I turn the computer screen...and nothing

If the computer is out of warranty, you dont have anything to loose. Have the northbridge and video chips re-flowed. You can do this using a heat gun, but
you have to be very careful not to destroy your board. This is a similar problem that XBOX360 owners were having with the red ring of death. These boards run very hot and over time and many cycles of heating up and cooling off the
chipsets separate from the mainboard and your computer becomes useless.
I dont have a board in front right now but if my memory serves me right place
the board in front of you so the hard drive connections are on the left side of
the board and the CPU socket is facing up. the 2 chips you want to work on
are just to the right of the CPU socket and just above the CPU socket. Be
sure to remove the CPU before you put any heat on these chips. Use circular
motions with the heat gun on HIGH. You may need to get some flux to put around each chip before doing this, but in my case I didnt have to. There was plenty there already. Computer worked for about 6-7 months after my fix and then needed the same repair again. If you want to see this done there are a lot of videos on the XBOX360 being done on youtube so to kinda give you an idea of how to do it. Might not be worth the trouble and you might be better off parting out the machine and just buy another one. Its all up to you, I hope this helps
I just bought a new system

I have motherboard D 101GGC ofter boot screen will get 2 beeps

Without knowing which bios you have, it is not possible to give you a definitive solution. That said, you probably have to use different RAM.
I've put together hundreds (at least) custom built PCs and I've noticed the RAM type can be a bit elusive. The requirements can tell you to put "PC3200" in, for example, but there are other factors involved when it comes to choosing the correct system memory. Your particular issue points to the parity chip. Most MOBOs accept RAM with NO parity. Replacing the RAM with something different is your best bet. is a fantastic site for choosing your RAM due to their tools for choosing the correct sticks. Additionally, they have phone support which is phenomenal when it comes to choosing the correct RAM for your MOBO.
I hope this helps. Additionally, I've provided a link below for different beep codes if you are wanting a second opinion.
Thanks for using!

I get a blank screen and 4 beeps what's the problem?

This could happen when the RAM contact is not proper, may be due to dust. Remove the memory modules from DIMM slot, clean it (no moisture please) and reinsert it. This could mostly solve your issue.
Please come back and rate my solution if it turns helpful for you or also if you need more clarifications. Thnx

When i swithch on the monitor is blank and there are two short beeps. Also the numbers 1 2 and 3 are lit in the tower front

The two short beeps are probably a POST (Power On Self Test) code. These have been in use since the first PC was manufactured by IBM, and other manufacturers decided to let IBM's POST codes be the standard for PC clones for several years. AMI, a BIOS chip manufacturer later came up with their own. Since then other manufacturers have strayed form the IBM fold, also.

For more info, go to <a href=""></a>.

Your 2 beeps in IBM POST code mean: POST error, see code on screen (code 123 means "system board error"). Not a lot of help!

Your 2 beeps in AMI BIOS POST code means a Base Memory Parity Error (bad memory chip in lower 64k of RAM).

The 123 display on the tower may NOT be the IBM POST error code, but something else. As reets-tech implies, you probably will only be able to get a definitive interpretation from your computer's manufacturer or one of their authorized repair facilities (if any). Good luck!
