The beeps are a way of your computer telling you there is a hardware fault and that it can't continue to load the OS.

In your case there are 2 possible causes...

1) The power supply is faulty. Open the case and just check that the wiring loom is seated firmly into the slot on the motherboard.

You could replace the power supply to see if this will cure it.

2) The motherboard is faulty. There is numerous reasons for this, but ultimately the best option is to replace it, either for the same or for a better one. This poses a few more problems though, as you will have to choose a motherboard that will be able to use your existing parts like the cpu, memory, graphics card etc.

To be really honest you would probably be better purchasing a new base unit. You can pick up really good ones for not much money, and at least you will get a upto date computer with a warranty.

Not much of a solution but I hope it helps.

Regards

    video card should not be an issue for this problem, not only that,
    graphics maybe onboard or AGP, in which case you can't change slot.

    If you check what the meaning of beeps are then they refer to the 2 items have mentioned and not the graphics card as you suggest!

You can take out the video card and try to put in a different slot and see if it works or ifthat does not work not probably need a new video card

My hpw1907 monitor says no input and wont display anything. The cpu also makes 1 beeping noise that last 1 second nd doesnt come back


A one second beep from the computer is standard for a proper boot.
Do you have a TV that you can plug your computer into to see if it is posting video? That would be the easiest way to test if it is a computer or monitor thing.

I have a dell 580 inspiron thats does not turn on..before it turned on but now it just beeps and doesnt follow through with start up.......i had a blue screeen before this ....thanxx


Blue screen could be the windows files getting corrupted due to a virus, file fragmentation or a failing hard drive, overheating cpu or failing memory.
The beeping usually indicates a hardware failure, first open the computer and see it the CPU heatsink is in place properly seated and fan is connected and spinning.
Second with the PC off, remove and reinsert the memory.
These are just a few things to check , most likely the hard drive has failed and needs replacing.
pressing certain keys during bootup can sometimes isolate the issue, but only if the monitor still shows a picture
I hope this helps
Thanks

The monitor goes dark within a few seconds of turning it on. Is this something that can be fixed or do I need to replace?


Try replacing the power cable. (assuming that the monitor has not lights when it turns off) After replacing the power cable if that doesnt work try a different outlet.
If there are lights try seeing if you can replace the data cable from the monitor to the computer. If that doesnt work then you will want to look into getting a replacement.

When you turning on your computer and when you heard a 1 beep that means your computer is functioning, but 1 beep with no display that means you need to check you monitor or try to transfer your lcd monitor to other computer to check if your monitor is working.

Hi, Im having a problem with my 22 inchs KDS LCD monitor. My monitor turn on and off by itself every few seconds, it also make some beep noises. I opened up the monitor and checked, but all capacitors look...


the beeps are called post your computer is searching for connected devices so i would suggest
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
good luck

the monitor is not getting any video information from your computer .. check the connection at the computer to make sure it is fully plugged in .. make sure the video card (if it has one) is securely in place ... make sure the monitor is actually plugged into the right connector .. you may have a bad video card or a damaged cable to your monitor .. you can plug the monitor into another computer to make sure its ok ..

Computer doesnt start FOXCONN 865A01-PE-6EKRS


Most of the times beeping at the start up refers at problems with the memory. So try starting your computer with 1 memory stick at a time, placed at the slot near the CPU (usually marked as DIMM 1) to find out memory error.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards
