Cause

Computer RAM (memory) related issue.


Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer. While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards. Information about ESD and proper grounding techniques are found on our ESD help page.


Remove added memory


If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Open computer and reseat memory


Sometimes when the computer is moved or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.


Swap memory location


If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.


If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.


Try another computers memory


If you have access to another computer that uses the same memory, try using its known good memory in your computer.

If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.


Replace memory


If it is determined the memory in the computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.

Repeating beep in my hp G60 laptop i changed ram but it didnt stop and but it stops when laptop loads windows


hi
repeat beeps is definitely a RAM module issue. ry reseating (installing) one RAM at a time... assuming you have two module sticks. try inserting one only, boot up system and see if it works without beep issue. if it doesnt beep, remove that module and reseat the second one alone. boot up system. if that one works as well, then these two modules are NOT the same maker, part number.
if they both work independantly, then the RAM together are not compatible. both RAM modules must be identical (maker, part number, etc) to avoid issues

hope this works.. please send me 4 thumbs up

A long high pitched beep after turning on the cpu. what is the problem sires?


Welcome to Fixya

Beep codes usually tells us that there is something wrong with the computer. 1 long beep tells us that there is a problem with the video card or memory module. But this should accompany whit short beeps. Could you verify further how many beeps are you getting there. Here's the link for the beep codes for your reference.

Please let me know if you have further questions.

Thank you for using Fixya!

When starting continuous beep sound


Hello sir, your pc has memory problems, continuous beeping is caused by undetected memory modules. Open the unit and locate the memory cards, remove and re-seat them. do this several times until the pc responds. ELSE you may have system board problems.

I have a Lenovo A61 Thinkcentre that is about one year old. I am now hearing a fairly loud noise that comes and goes. When the system starts, the noise appears and lasts 10 - 20 minutes, then disappears....


Ok it still sounds like an fan. look for fans, one in power supply, one on cpu, one in case(frount or back), one on video card. before you start from cold unplug the fans that you can. and stop the one in power supply. then if there is no nosie you have to start pluging them back in till you hear the noise. **NOTE!!** don't run it long without fans!!( 40 secs) is long enough..

If you doesn't hear any beeps, at least you must hear one beep.
Clear CMOS or remove the Lithium Battery CR2032 in the motherboard about 1 minute, to know which MB is hang up with processor, then put it back again & power it on.

Lenovo thinkcentre a51 reboots with several beeps


There is a system error in the system. Would be hard to determine cause of the error without viewing an error log. I recommend, using system restore and setting the pc back to a time it worked good. Otherwise, download a free registry error cleaner and registry optimizer called "glary utilities" from glaryutilities.org
Run the program to get all the bugs out of your pc

I have thinkcenter machine when i boot the machine continous beep is originating first small beep and then continous beep and behave like this and system does not boot please suggest


Yes those beeps are a beep code. The way it is currently beeping means you have a bad RAM stick. Open case and make sure the RAM is seated correctly, sometimes it can come loose. You can also take one stick out if you have two and reboot. If it does it again then take that RAM out and replace it with the one you took out. If it still beeps then you need to buy new RAM. That will correct the problem.
