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.

I have the CW447 integrated dishwasher which won't fill with water


Like most electrical appliances what worked for me was turn it off at the wall for 10 mins, then turn it back on. Did you get an error code? Check the pipes are not twisted and that the water supply is turned on full. Let me know how you get on

My ps3 it goes green beeps twice then goes red and flashes on/off


you might be holding the power on button to long. you hold the power on button until it beeps to reset the video output. try turning it on by using your controller. just press the ps3 button and if the red light is on then it should come on.

it works for slimline PS2. might work for PS3.
1) turn off PS3
2) unplug PS3 and wait a minute or two before plugging back in.

Backs up spins in circles, then red light flashes and beeps


Sounds like either the battery is bad or not being charged properly with subsequent loss of programming.
