I would love to find the definitions for the beeping code on the Sony Viao Desktop to help determine why I am stuck in a black screen while my machine continues into windows 7. I know it has gone into Windows 7 because I hear the entry music plain as day. This **** black screen has me perplexed. I am an old horse at solving problems and good at it. This one baffles me.

Anyone with any ideas respond please.

    Whoops! I did not want to get hopes up. Mine was a question, not a solution.

One long beep and two short beeps usually means a video problem. If you have an add-on video card, try replacing it with a new one. If you are using an on-board video, go into the bios and turn it off. then shut down & install an add-on card.

1 LONG BEEP 2 SHORT BEEPS

Does anything ever post to the screen when you press the power button? if not, it's your video card. The links below are for 1 long and 2 short and they say it's the video card. I've heard that Sony extended the warranty on some models so you might want to go to their website and check yours or in a google search type: Sony GPU Extended Warranty. I did and I see they extended it from one to three years. They have the faulty Nvidia Graphics Card which was a major problem for many manufacturers.

Sony Vaio LT35E 1 long beep and 2 short beep on power on. no display. need help

Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information
It seems that there is RAM issue because of which you are 1 long beep and 2 short beeps refers on your Sony Viao laptop in such case the basic thing is to replace your RAM and youn't be able to get the beep sound again or else you can also Rub the golden foil of your RAM with rubber and try to insert it again. Hope it works for you.

Whenever I start my computer, it shows the Sony Vaio logo and right after that my computer starts beeping while staying at this logo. Sometimes it starts with windows restore and then it froze there and...

The beeps are a code to let you know what failed during the Power On Self Test (POST)

Count the beeps - and whether long or short. (Like 3 longs and 2 short, etc)

Go online to the Soony web site, or search for Sony POST codes. A list of codes will tell you what is failing - such as ram - or hard drive, etc. I suspect the latter.

The only thing works on my 600 series is fan-nothing to screen

You can try reseating the memory and video card. You just pull them out and put them back in. Disconnect the power cord before. Also, the machine should beep. Those beep codes have diagnostic meanings. Listen to the beep, and google it: like 2 short 1 long or 4 short.

If the machine doesn't beep, the motherboard is bad.
