Here is the appropriate link for the manual and driver/bios downloads; http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?CategoryID=1&TypeID=1&DetailID=277&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=9 Unfortunately nothing about error beeps. I would suspect the graphics card, try uninstalling and removing it and start from scratch. Try and update your bios if you can, http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Support/Category_Support.aspx?MenuID=3&LanID=9 if you get no luck with this then try the Clr CMOS procedure as described in the manual, also remove the cmos battery and replace, ideally with a new one (should be a CR-2302) Hope this helps :)

Beeps on motherboard can mean 3 things: 1. memory out (or corupted) 2. vga card out (or corupted) 3. mother board is corupted try to take out the memory and the vga card and place them back on you can go and read you motherboard manual and look exactly what 3 beeps means..

My computer does not boot

The reason with your laptop does not boot is power chord does not plug in...memory problem...operating system and corrupted hdd...
Check the power chord if properly plug to the outlet Check the memory if you heard 3 beep or 8 beep...if you hear 3 beep...the memory is not installed properly...check and install properly...if you hear 8 beep you need to replace the memory with new one...if you hear a continuous beep...the memory...discard the memory...open the laptop then off immediately...then install the memory again...
if the problem still exist...

Please go to the nearest repair center to fix the problem. Because it is very fatal and need assistance from a technician

My g40 will not boot up when i turn it on it beeps 3 time with equal time between beeps and then shuts off never getting the screen ti light up

Hi,
The beeps indicate that you have a RAM memory problem. Did you install new RAM lately? If yes then try removing the new RAM module and try again. If not then maybe your existing memory module has gone bad. Try replacing the RAM memory.

One long beep tone---NO Display on monitor(monitor checked ok)

Definitely not your monitor. It is either a CPU or a Memory problem, is this a new build or did an existing computer suddenly start doing this?

Is that your motherboard, the Gigabyte 7VM400M ?

Ok i received my new pc yesterday and installed windows vista etc, it was working great. This morning i woke up and turned my computer on and i heard 3 short beeps which were continuous and never stopped,...

3-3 is either video card or memory related.  Try to reseat your video card and see if that helps.  If nothing still, try to reseat the RAM.  If that doesn't work, try another video card.  If that doesn't work, try different memory.  If all that doesn't work, let me know and I will see what else I can do to help you out.  But from my experience, it is almost always RAM related.

Remove the 1 gig chip. Pull you battery out and unplug the laptop. Hold the power button in for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug the laptop back in again and try booting it up. This should reset the BIOS and allow it to boot. The beep codes you are talking about are a memory beep code and it is normally caused by adding memory or a loose memory stick. Also try pulling the existing memory and resetting it.

No screen, 2 rounds of 1long beep+3 short beeps; doing for a while

It may be the cause of the video problem due to the single beep and following 3 beep.clean the memory slot and insert th memory again,that is also a remedy for the problem.check a new memory by inserting in the slot also.I think it may solve the problem
