    ok, its the GPU thats the problem.
    ive tried reconnecting it, but it still has the same problem. i think the connection to the motherboard is the problem, so ill try another graphics card later to see if its the conection on the motherboard or graphics card.

    thanks for the help though :D

You could be right but it's hard defining beeps but i would reseat your memory and graphics card as 1 long and 3 short beeps refers mainly to graphics

Computer was working its a alienware computer with p4t533-c motherboard now it comes on but when you power it on theres usual a beep then it loads but now it wont beep at all and dnt load nothing not even...


toddzr2 - whenever I have a problem like this, you need to unplug all your peripherals, i.e. take out your video card, unplug your hard drive, CD/DVD, etc. Power up, you should get some beeping b/c the video card is out. Power down, reinsert your video card, power back up. See if you can get to your BIOS screen. It's possible that something may have shorted out, i.e. video card, or other peripheral. Don't be afraid to remove the memory as well but make sure you're touching the case to keep yourself grounded and minimize any static discharges.

Hi mine wont show screen at all! i reset ram no help. i turn it on no screen n after about 20 secs it has one long beep?? i cant tell if its loading or not!


the long beep indicates faulty ram oir graphics card, i would say ram, you also need to reset the bios, via the cmos jumper or battery, continuous long beep is a dram error, so the ram is faulty, get some new ram and make sure its specs match the computer

Emachine T5062 pc wont turn on, I get 5 beeps When the computer performs the ''Power on system test''. I could not remember what BIOS the computer had but I think It was AMI. The five beeps for AMI mean...


make sure it is not getting really hot, also try cleaning all again and start putting them together step by step. make sure the dust didn't got in another part like RAM memories slots, and if you have a big problem with the processor the PC wouldn't even start, wont even turn on.

Whenever i start my pc fan's start's even monitor start's imediately but 'no signle' massage appears on screen & monitor screen got off


Do you get any "Beep" sound coming from the internal speaker, if so is it just one straight beep or numerous beeps.

If it's one straight beep then this indicates the PC has passed it's POST (Power On Self Test), if it's a series of beeps, some long, some short, it means there is some problem inside the computer, like loose graphics card, RAM, CPU, cable, etc. The beep sequence should be in your motherboard manual under beep codes. That will give you a hint as to what to look for next.

If it is one straight beep and PC passes POST then check your monitor connections, and monitor, it could be that the power saving/signal detection pin is either not connected properly, or damaged.

If you don't have the internal speaker connected (normally in the bottom or front of the case), you need to connect this to find out what is going on.

If you need to connect it you should look at your motherboard manual for where to connect it, normally if you look at the motherboard you will see a load of thin cables coming from the front of the case going onto the motherboard at a point, the 4 pins on the bank of pins at the end are normally the PC speaker (you also get a blank pin between them and the Power Switch pin), although check your manual first, or see if you can see the SPK connection on the motherboard (normally Gigabyte boards are very well marked for this, and colour coded.)

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.

1 short beep and 1 long beep when power button is pressed.


These sounds are known as BIOS beep codes. They indicate an error with your system. Traditionally, 1 long and 1 short indicates a system board problem.
If you google bios beep codes, you will be able to find the codes that relate to your Bios, or motherboard.
Backup your files. Your computer is trying to tell you something.

EMachine T3406 wont boot


is there a post beep when the pc is switched on. check the memory if it is a beep beep beep sound , also disconect the hard drive, dvd drive, floppy, and any usb devices and see if it boots up. if that fails it does seem like the mother board, also check the cpu fan has it stoped. also find out the power switch conector on the mother board, from the base unit switch to the mother board. also chech the power connector from the power supply to the mother board , on newer boards there are two that go to the mother board its self , a big one and a very small one .

URGENT HELP... i have broken my computer by OVERCLOCKING it...please help


First of all, it seems unlikely that you have actually broken anything.

Please look carefully at the options in the main setup menu (BIOS) after you press the DEL key... There sshould be an option to "loade defalut settings" or "load optimised settings"

If so select this option and F10 to save/exit and allow it to boot
