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

Hi, I have upgraded my HP Pavilion DV1000 RAM to 2G PC2700 DDR 333MHz, but after turning on it just makes 4 short beeps and screen is not turned on, please help me fix this error.

4 Short beeps would indicate during POST (Power on Self Test) there is a initialization issue with added hardware. The DIMM you added may not be compatible, or installed in the correct order.
1. Remove new memory completely, and see if machine starts
2. If you have original memory module still installed, remove it and try new one by itself.
3. If that works, put newer larger module in the 1st slot, and move original in second slot, and try again.

The system can automatically adjust memory settings (speed and timing) itself from the SPD module on every stick of RAM. However if the settings are drastically different, it can cause problems. Generally it will run as fast as the slowest module, but now always, sometimes causing the slower module to be attempted to run out of spec and cause boot issues or system instability.

Good luck!

My compac presario PC SR5510F keeps beeping and wont start up? do you know why that would be

When a PC is turned on and then starts beeping, the beeps are actually a message to help troubleshoot. You should listen to the beeps and learn what the pattern is. With that pattern, you may be able to determine the issue.

HP has published a list of these beep codes that are common to many of their system. That information can be found at this link > HP/Compaq Beep Codes

Hp pavilion723a when starts emits high pitch beeps and wont boot

These beeps are telling you that there is something wrong with the hardware. It means something has failed and will most likely need replaising. The certain amount of beeps will tell you the exact piece of hardware, count of beeps and phone hp and they should tell you whats wrong with it and if its repairable.

Good Luck

Dryer stops midway through cycle and wont restart just beeps

If it was really loaded with int, it may have killed the motor. You could take it apart and thoroughly vacuum it. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you'll need a motor
