Question about HP Pentium 4 (p5663-69001)
This is a warning that some piece of hardware is not working. You may want to check fans making sure that they are functioning to keep your devices cooled down. If these stop working you may have burned out the CPU chip. Most likely it is a memory stick or a mouse or keyboard that may not be connected properly make sure that everything is connected and in their right ports. What I do to find this out what it is I isolate devices to see if the beeping with stop or it will start the BIOS. I start with the mouse then keyboard then anything that is plugged in externally I unplug one at a time powering up each time I undo a device if the beeping stops then that is the problem device. You can also go in the computer case and undo the hard drive and one stick of memory one by one. If it continues and you have illuminated just about everything then it may be the system board itself.
More than likely it is a memory chip you know it is not the power supply because it starts up. If you do not want to do this process of illumination most folks do not. I suggest you take it in and let the people who can best fix this do the job. They can determine the issue rather quickly by reading the codes on the BIOS flash page when the computer first starts up try and see what it is saying when it comes on if you get the BIOS at least to flash information for you. The machine will say keyboard not installed or no hard drive found. Also you can go back by removing any devices that you just replaced or added this could also be the cause.
Last ditch effort unplug the computer from the power outlet push in the power button hold for about 2-3 seconds you will see a flash. Now plug the computer back in the power outlet then restart the computer this sets your computer back to default settings and loads devices again. Often times this can resolve problems more than likely with beeping it will be a hardware issue. I hope that this shed some light on the issue for you, thanks for using FixYa! John
