One long beep on boot

By JoanneG ·
I recently built a Pentium 4 1.8GHz PC with 256MB RAM, hard drive, floppy, CD-ROM and CD-RW. I am running Windows ME. Approximately every 10 boots or so, I will receive one long continuous beep and the PC will not boot unless I do a restart. The PC then boots normally and everything is fine. I have read that this might signal a problem with the power supply? Other than this one issue, I have no other problems, the PC performs well. Does anyone have any ideas on what I need to be checking?Thanks for your help.

The BIOS manufacturer will be the determining factor of the Beep Code

One long beep will usually indicate a Power Supply or Motherboard problem

Check the power supply connection to the motherbaord to make sure the connector is set on the connector properly

Then try checking the Video card to make sure that it is seated properly in slot.
