+ 2 Votes If it boots okay mjd420nova 7 years ago It sounds like a stuck key on the keyboard. If it boots up normally except for the beep, a key may be stuck on the keyboard. If so, try looking at the control panel and it might identify the faulty key. A good visual inspection with the unit off could give you an idea of which one. Press each key, even the function keys and numeric cluster, see if they feel okay or don't seem to have the same ACTION as the rest. Maybe one is stuck down or feels funny. The space bar is the most common culprit. Good luck. + 0 Votes Had the same problem Draadloos December 20, 2012 at 4:04am PST I just selected optimized settings in the bios and the beeping was gone + 0 Votes Possible Hardware or Memory failure BigAbe 7 years ago A constant beeping may mean a number of things. I would start with your memory sticks. If you have more than one, try removing one, start the pc and see if it stops... if not, shut down the pc, put that one back and take the other out... start the PC again and see if it stops. you may also look up your mother board specifics for beep codes to see if they offer suggestions. Other issues may be failing hardware. + 0 Votes BIOS Hendry_Betts 7 years ago Without knowing any of the pertinent information about your computer (manufacturer, bios manufacturer, model, peripherals, etc) I would venture that you have a hardware fault that is being detected by your BIOS. It isn't serious enough to prevent boot, but it is a problem. Recommendation: 1) Activate your warranty on your computer 2) provide more information (as described above) 3) Disconnect your internal speaker :-) The last one isn't a solution, but it will stop the infernal beeping. Ciao. + 0 Votes First things First w2ktechman 7 years ago Althought there are several good solutions, if it just started happening, here is the first steps. Listen to the beep codes. Look up the specific codes from the computer maker or MB manufacturer for the model that you have. Is there an error message on the screen when it boots? If so, what is it? Does the screen display? If not, the video card may be faulty. If it is under Warranty, please use the available support before continuing.... If the manufacturers beep codes do not help, then you may need to open the case. But first, unplug every external device and see if the problem goes away. If not then continue looking. Open the case and reseat the RAM, HDD's, fans, etc (be careful about Static). try again If not, remove a RAM chip and try again, keep doing this for the other RAM chip (replacing the first pulled one), and other devices. Post back + 1 Votes A simple beep or a complex tone? TheChas 7 years ago If everything seems to be working, and the sound you here is more like a siren than just a beep, the PC Health monitor on the motherboard has detected a problem. It could be a fan spinning too slow or not at all. A bad CPU temperature sensor. Or a failed voltage regulator. If you enter BIOS setup, and go to the PC health section, the source of the problem should be obvious. You may need to replace a fan, or the motherboard. Chas + 0 Votes In addition to the above answers HAL 9000 Moderator 7 years ago The way that the system beeps means something and since you didn't give us the makers name or M'Board maker it's hard to say for sure but here is a list of Beep Codes by BIOS Maker there are 3 different individual makes AMI. AWARD or Phoenix so you'll need to look at your BIOS to find the right maker and see what those beeps mean exactly. http://tinyurl.com/tcnwg If this is a new AMD build it's possible that you need to flash the BIOS to a newer version which may not currently be available but sometimes with AMD CPU's they work slightly differently and cause minor problems like an Overheat alarm to sound or something similar. If this is an older machine that has just started acting this way there will be some sort of problem with the Hardware most likely a Fan not spinning fast enough or at all. Sometimes a Fan connector can come off the M'Board and cause this Io happen. It will require a look see to make sure that everything is properly connected and working correctly. Lastly it's possible that the BIOS Battery is flat and has allowed the BIOS to default to it's pre installed settings and you are getting some error message telling you what isn't working correctly most likely a CPU that is not clocked correctly in BIOS or a fan not working. The first thing to do is look up the Beep Error Codes find out what is wrong and then look to see if what the Hardware is telling you is actually no longer working. If you have the M'Board Manual still you can look up the Beep Error Codes in there and save yourself a bit of time on the net but before you even start to look you have to know what the Error Code Actually means.

All i can say is listen carefully to the beeps then have a look at the tables and see if you can do a bit of troubleshooting. Also, if you do have the warranty left then it may be an idea to use that for ease. + 0 Votes Overheated CPU asdfasdf852 6 years ago A continuous High-Low beeping would usually mean the CPU is overheated + 0 Votes Yeah, me too, but this cured it; abhuston 6 years ago Yeah, I was troubled by exactly the same thing. It went on and on for months and my techy friends didn't have a clue or usefull suggestion other than to wipe my C drive and reload everything over and over again. Of course this didn't help. Finaly I read this list and took out every removable card from my computer and blew the dust off and re-installed it. Lo and behold, when I started up my 'puter again, the problem had dissapeared. It was a dust particle somewhere in the connection of one of my cards. + 1 Votes COMPUTER SYSTEM BEEP CODES Peconet Tietokoneet-217038187993258194678069903632 6 years ago Beep Code: Description of Problem: No Beeps Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals One Beep Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine Two Beeps POST/CMOS Error One Long Beep, One Short Beep Motherboard Problem One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps Video Problem One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps Video Problem Three Long Beeps Keyboard Error Repeated Long Beeps Memory Error Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps CPU Overheating Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
