Beeps on start up

I've been trying to revive my 600. I'm having trouble installing the OS and thanks to the people who have offered solutions where I posted that question. In digging in a little further I found out that there is a self diag that runs and the beeps define a problem. I have three beeps on start-up. It relates to: 64K RAM failure. Is this a motherboard issue or is there something I may have mis-configured in adding/changing out hardware?

The base 64kb memory is used by the bios to check the basics then pass through to the CPU to start everything up. Depending on your mobo make, 3 beeps could mean a ram failure or or something more sinister, check the mobo site for beep codes. If you like you can try re setting the bios on mobo look for JBAT1 terminal and move jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to 1-2. Restart pc and set time and ensure you get the Hard Disk drive recognised in the standard bios settings by pressing f8 or similair to auto detect drives, save then exit.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c - Windows Vista: DirectX 10). http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer Hope this helps.

what in the world is that, use the service tag model number
and stated OS version running.
the HP manual tells you all beeps codes, HP.com
read that yet?> PDF book on service? free?
that is a mobo #
is it too much trouble to say out of WHAT?

you need to go in to BIOS
and set the boot device first.
and order. and not have CD installed if enabled.
the HDD must be bootable, is it?
if not do a fresh install of your unstated OS.

Three sets of beeps, or three individual beeps? Does it repeat? If so, then check this for the code you are hearing:

If it is a steady once-per-second beep - or a constant screech - and it is able to boot to the OS (or even most the way), then it is probably your RAID controller. Boot to CTRL-A or CTRL-M to check the status of your array.

Installation of audiophile 192

Here is a list computer beeps and what they mean.

  • No Beeps: Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals
  • One Beep: Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine
  • Two Beeps: POST/CMOS Error
  • One Long Beep, One Short Beep: Motherboard Problem
  • One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps: Video Problem
  • One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps: Video Problem
  • Three Long Beeps: Keyboard Error
  • Repeated Long Beeps: Memory Error
  • Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps: CPU Overheating

Most times the beeping is caused by a bad/loose connection somewhere or card not seated properly.
Try disconnecting and reconnecting everything again. Make sure that all the power plugs are connected properly even if you didn't mess with them. Moving things around can sometimes be enough to give you the "BEEPS". ";-}

If you are still having much beeping and no computing you can try my personal favorite.

Start first with verbal threats. Next move to a second floor window and, while you explain whats going to happen if it doesn't knock it off, open the window.

If that fails give it the pitch.
Believe it or not I have used this technique and after reassembly and repair.....No more beep.

I hope this helps but if not let me know and we will try something else.
