Hello mustpets,

If it's an Award bios: 1 long, 2 short beeps indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information.

Hi,
Based on the information provided, looks like some peripheral or component failed. This abnormal beep means some components (like RAM) is either not functioning OR is loosely connected etc.
If you are comfortable with your desktop, i would suggest >> (1) checking if the RAM modules are inserted properly or not. (2) Checking if the Video card is inserted properly.
Sometimes RAM/video card etc get loose due to a shock/**** etc, and hence the abnormal beeps.
If you are not comfortable with opening your desktop, then i am afraid you would have to call for service to check whats wrong in the system.
Thanks and do tell if this solved your problem.

There's a sound during startup


Hello,

There is no problem with your computer. It's just natural to have a beeping sound during start up. If there is, then it will show an error message in the screen.

If it's just a short beep, then it's normal.

On startup there is 4 beeps then 2 then nothing. The laptop belongs to my grandouther.the power coard was frade,so my guess is that's where the problem started.


Beep codes are used by the BIOS during the POST to report certain initial system errors.
If you're hearing beep codes after you turn your computer on, it typically means that the system has encountered some kind of problem before it was able to display any kind of error information on the monitor.
Follow the steps below to determine what system problem the beep code is representing.
Difficulty: Average Time Required: Anywhere from 10 minutes to a few hours depending on the cause of the beep code Here's How:
  1. Power on the computer or restart it if it's already on.
  2. Listen very carefully to the beep codes that sound when the computer begins to boot.
    Restart your computer if you need to hear the beeping again. You're not likely to make whatever problem you have worse by restarting a few times.
  3. Write down, in whatever way makes sense to you, how the beeps sound.
    Important: Pay close attention to the number of beeps, if the beeps are long or short and if the beeping repeats or not. There is a big difference between a "beep-beep-beep" beep code and a "beep-beep" beep code.
    This is all important information that will help determine what issue the beep codes are representing.
  4. What steps you take to solve a particular beep code will differ depending on the BIOS manufacturer.
    Choose the correct beep code troubleshooting guide below based on your motherboard's BIOS manufacturer:
    Tip: Not sure what brand of BIOS is on your motherboard? See this How to Determine Your Motherboard BIOS Manufacturer guide for some helpful advice.

2 short beeps at startup


Two beeps is an indication of a memory problem. Try re-seating the RAM, you may need to replace one or more of the memory modules.
Re-seating is the first thing to try.
Good luck with this.
