    I have a Gateway laptop MX8711 dual core Intel. It beeps continuously on power up until it gets to the boot window--where it asks you to select the OS which you wish to boot. I only have VISTA premium home. At this point the beeping has stopped. I have to hit enter for windows to boot.

Wont start up and high pitch beep


The beeping is from the motherboard most likely. Sounds like you have some kind of virus. You may be able to access safe mode by holding alt+f4 when start-up but other then that I would take your PC in to get checked out.

Booting beeps


Beeping indicates that something on the circuit board is not working. On desktops beeping with no boot means your mobo is fried. And you'll need an expert to repair it, usually the vendor.

Long beeps at startup and won't boot up


What is the pattern of the long beeps? one long beep or two long beeps, three long beeps?

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

How to stop the beeping sound


Beeping sounds when you try to boot up? Is your system booting up all the way? Beep sounds help the technician isolate the problem with your computer booting. Beep sounds normally indicate a problem with the memory, cpu, keyboard, fan, motherboard, etc. The number of beeps can be looked up based on the motherboard brand or bios and it will tell what the problem is.

Computer dead and beeping


If it beeps and not boot then it is the post routine telling you there is a problem. The post routine is run when you turn the power on to ensure the computer hardware is ok to run. The manufacturer of the bios routine can tell what is wrong by the type, number and duration of the beeps. Look up the code meanings and it will indicate the problem. If this sounds like nonsense to you then give the make and model of your machine and what the beeps sound like. ( beep beep beep delay beep beep beep) etc. and I'll look it up for you.
