I went on vacation for a week and my computer was running fine. Then when I got home and started it up my computer there were long spread out beeps 2 seconds about and they don't stop it just keeps going. My mouse,keyboard, and monitor don't come on. I have an 8800 gt and a 650i ultra motherboard. If any other specs are needed il post. The weird part is I got it to work before I dusted it out, but then it stopped working. I tried replacing the ran as I have seen in other posts the beep still continues
My Compaq has the constant beeps & the monitor stays black. I took it to Staples & the tech did a free tune up (special this week). They claim nothing needs replaced, everything is fine. Took it home, hooked it up-same problem. Unplugged everything in back, put them back in, worked fine. Turn it on this morning & now I have the beeps again! TIA for any help.
Hey guys, thought I would chime in. I had this same exact problem on my e510 (beeped 1 then 3 then 2 with no monitor for my system) which at first I thought was my video card but after installing and reinstalling I figured it was my RAM. I pulled them out and cleaned them (because they were filthy) and reinstalled and it booted perfectly. Thanks for the advice and I really hope this helps someone else.
Thanks folks changing the ram TOTALLY works, might I suggest you remove ALL rams sticks and replace one by one and restart comp till you can find the baddie in the bunch. If you only have one stick, try swopping with another comp.
I had this problem on DELL OptiPlex 760. I removed the RAM chips, cleaned them (by blowing out dust), cleaned the machine, put them back and it worked! I followed advice in this column. Thanks everyone. My area is very dusty, you see.
I took my pc apart to give it a clean iveput everything in the right place and I jus get consant beeps for 5 seconds a piece every 2-3 seconds apart and no its not my ram I think its the processor but im not sure thefan on top works properly and every thing sounds like its working but still beeping can any 1 help
Having tried all the suggested problem fixes we could find to no avail, my IT support man and I stripped my HP dv9000 series laptop down to the motherboard to try and identify any loose connections. Everything looked fine. With not much hope we tried the last resort of removing all the heat sinks and gently applied a hair dryer to the nVidia graphics processor and memory chips on the motherboard for about 2 minutes (both sides) until they were finger hot without scorching the surfaces. After letting it cool down we reassembled everything and switched on. Voila! My machine is back working! Total repair time about 3 hours. The HP sevice manual found on the web helped somewhat in identifying the the right disassembly procedure and screw types for reassembly. Not for the fainthearted but you don't have to be a rocket scientist either.
I ran some performance checks for physical and logical errors, I cleaned up my registry and it found 2100 errors. I also freed up some of my RAM. I opened the PC up I took the drive out then put it back in; everything seems to be fine, its been working for about 2 weeks now.
You dont mentined that you got your desktop in your machine
may in your system keyboard any key should have a problem ;
otther wise check the RAM and remove it and cleane using a paper dont touch directly to the ram pins
then check your computer is work or not
