Computer Is Beeping Endlessly

I have an hp media center pc m7360n. It is beeping whenever i turn on the computer. The beeping pattern is an endless loop of 4 seconds beep and 2 seconds pause. I've contacted hp and they suggested that the problem could be coming from the motherboard and that it needs to be replaced. The bios brand is a phoenix. I already tried removing everything except the cpu and it is still beeping. What i'm afraid of is that if it is not the motherboard problem then i have to pay for sending the motherboard back (assuming the retailer will refund) and then purchase the cpu, which at this piont i still don't know how much it will cost me. This computer is fairly new. The warranty just expired this january. Can anyone help me diagnoze this problem? What are my options? Should i toss it or fix it?

Computer Starting But No Posting / Beeping / Booting

I was having trouble with my keyboard dying during the middle of using it, so i got frustrated and pulled the power cord while the computer was on. I probably did this 2-4 times because it kept dying. Eventually, the computer wouldn't even boot. It won't boot into bios or anything. All of the lights turn on in the case, fans spin, but no beeps/noise from mobo and all of the usb ports don't get power(for example, usb mouse doesn't get power). I have done the following:

Re-seat ram
Re-seat sound card
Re-seat video card
Re-seat cpu/heatsink
Remove cmos/power, let sit for a few minutes
Remove all unneeded devices/items(all usb stuff, etc. )
Let computer sit overnight

No avail. What in the *** is the problem?

Amd 64 4000+
Nvidia geforce 7900gtx
2gb corsair xms
Seagate 320gb sata2 7200rpm x2
Creative x-fi xtreme sound card
Special heatsink
Antec 550w psu
Gigabyte 3d aurora case

Beeping And Freezing

I have had my pc for a long time however over the years it has been upgraded, more ram, new mother board, new graphics card etc. It has had it's fair share of problems, but this year everything has been going fine. No problems to report. That was until this morning. Woke up thsi morning to find my brother on the computer, i kicked him off and logged on to have him tell me that the computer seems to be freezing and beeping. I thought nothing of it and continued by turning the internet on, opening msn, checking emails etc. Then the freezing and beeping started. At first it just froze. I thought nothing of it. I had to many windows open so it was going slow. That must be the problem. So i shut everything down other than one ff window. But it continued. This time happening alot more often and now with a beeping sound coming from inside the computer itself. Just like the sound you hear when you boot your pc up. So i ran avg for virus's and spybot to see if i had any nasty things running around my system. Both came back fine. Nothing bad to report. I defragmented my hard drive. That went ok other than i found i only have just over 5gb of hard drive space left. I tryed everything i could think of. Finally the amount of times it kept on freezing and beeping died down. I thought i had killed it and everything was sorted. How wrong was i. After 5 mins it had all started again. So i decided to run a little experiment. I have now noticed that it doesn't beep everytime it freeze up. When i was on the desktop i just kept my mouse moving around the screen and i noticed that after a while it seemed to freeze for a second, and then continue working as normal, however there wasn't a beeping sound. I continued doing this "experiment" and found that the beeping sound happens occasionally, but not as often as the computer freezing. I have also noticed that when it does beep, it freezes for a much longer period of time.

Stop The Beeping

Ok. When i hold backspace, or del when there is nothing in the text input line, the computer emits this horrible sound kind of akin to a dying bird. It is the system speaker taking instructions from xchat to beep the pc speaker. Why do you still force the computer to output to the pc speaker on windows machines? You know there is such thing as a sound-card, and i can bet that about 95% of computers have it. Please fix this problem, give me a setting to change, or do something to correct this, as it is very annoying and because of this, i have stopped using xchat for windows.

Beeping And Freezing - Pc Beeps Then Freeze

My pc just started beeping, and the screen froze and i had to reboot. Then after that even when im doing nothing on the pc just on webpages its beeping and freezing for a split second, even when i boot up the pc it beeps, and takes its time rebooting. Then just before i was on the pc, on a webpage, and a blue screen appeared for a second cant remmember what it said, and then the pc restarted. But last night i was on css for 2 hours streight and there was no beeping or restarts?

But even before this incident, my pc has been randomly restarting while playing games only, so i therefore put a house fan at the side of my pc case, with all the sides off, and this seemed to work. But now with this beeping even when i put the fan at the side its makeing no difference at all. Can anyone help. (Don't say try other ram or another processor or another graphics card to see if thats the problem, because the fact is i don't have any spare parts for my pc, and i don't wish to buy any parts for my pc to see if thats corects the problem. Also when its beeping i restart my pc and go into the bios to check temps and my cpu temp was on 49c and my mb temp was on 28c. Also i have downloaded this program called motherboard monitor, and in the corner it says 35 37 specifications:

Amd 3200+
1. 5 gig of them 512x3
Radeon 9800 pro 128mb
400 watt power supply.

Black Screen / Beeping Sound

A pii 400mhz came in the workshop with a problem that's got me scratching my head. It posts ok, reads memory, etc, but just before the operating system loads, you hear a beeping sound and the monitor goes black. No signal is sent to the monitor. The video card is agp, i tried another card, also tried a pci card. I've tried fiddling around in the bios, such as disabling power management, but no luck. You can hear the os loading, but can't see anything.

Pc Beeping On Startup, Ram Problem

Im sorry if this has been brought up before, but i was just trying to upgrade my pcs ram. I ordered some new 512k ram from ebay and when i plugged it in and restarted my computer, i got continuous beeps and nothing comes up on monitor. I tried removing the new ram and plugging in my old ram (which previously worked), but same problem. Ive tried using all of the 3 slots but no use. I tried using my old ram in a different pc and it works. I did some research and the beeps i get are 1 beep immediately after start, and then 3 continuous short beeps. I read on another forum that it means "beeps 1-3-3-3 2a clear 512k base ram!"

After some investigation i found out that the ram i got from ebay is ddr2 ram while the ram i previously had was ddr. So maybe by plugging in wrong ram in wrong dimm has caused this, and messed my system up. Have i messed up my ram slots ?

Gigabyte Ga-965p-s3 Beeping Error

I finally got the last big of my computer in today, and after installing, plugged the power in and turned it on. However, a high whistling "beep" sounded even though everything seemed to be running fine. The fans on the cpu/gfx/psu/case all started up just fine, but no signal went to the monitor or keyboard. According to my manual for the gigabyte ga-965p-s3 (don't know if it's 1. 0 or 3. 3, but i just bought it not even two weeks ago), a long steady beep means a ram problem. My ram is, ocz ddr2 2gb (2x1gb) pc2-6400 800mhz dual channel kit - ocz2p8002gk. From what i can tell, there shouldn't be any problem. This is my first custom comp, but i have several friends who helped me pick out my setup and approve it before i bought it. I've tried putting the ram in in every possibly imaginable way, both red, one red/one yellow, both yellow, just one stick in each, beeps every time. I've reconnected pretty much every wire and piece of hardware, i know it's not a connection issue. And i have all wires connected that need to be. I just can't figure this out.

Bios Beeping, A Long Beep Followed By Two Short Beeps

I am receiving the bios beeping of a long beep followed by two short beeps. According to every source that i have consulted about this code, it means that there is a problem with the video card. I have been using this card for a year now and it has functioned just fine up to this point. Nevertheless, i have reseated it several times to no avail. Next, i tried using a brand new video card and received the same error. I can therefore speculate that my issue isn't with the card, but with another component. I am not sure how to tell whether it is the motherboard or the power supply. I am therefore seeking advice on how to tell. At the time the problem began, i was playing stepmania, a dance dance revolution computer emulation program. The game itself can be played on very low-end systems with little or no problem, so i would not expect that it would have over-heated anything. During my gameplay, the computer crashed and restarted itself. After the computer restarted itself, it began booting windows. At the black windows xp screen with the bar that goes across the screen multiple times until going to the user accounts screen, the computer froze and i was forced to reboot the computer manually. From this point forward, the bios began giving the beeps and would not allow the computer to turn on again. I am currently using an enermax 600w psu sli power supply. It has never given me an issue since the day i bought it, nor given me a reason to believe that it was failing. I have connected the video card to the two power connectors with the provided power splitting cable. I have also plugged in the extra sli video card power cable on the motherboard even though i am not using sli. Because of these things, i would certainly hope that the power supply is not causing the issue. I am using an asus a8n-sli nforce4 ultra, pcie socket 939 motherboard. When powered up, the power supply led indicator shines green. All fans turn on, including that of the video card. All pieces of my computer, with the exception of the hard drives and cd drives, were purchased at the same time. I tested the video problem with a brand new bfg geforce 7950 gt 512mb pcie w/dual dvi/hdtv card as well. I am not sure if this is related, but i was having some trouble with my cd drives recognizing some media prior to the problem. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what could be the issue behind this system failure? Also i have tried resetting the bios cmos as well. In case there is use in this information, here is a list of all the parts:-

Computer specifications:

Asus a8n-sli nforce4 ultra, pcie socket 939 motherboard
Ocz 2048mb pc3200 ddr 400mhz el platinum (2 x 1024)
Amd athlon 64 x2 4200+ socket 939 (manchester)
Enermax 600w psu sli / server ready, pfc
Evga geforce 7900 gtx 512mb pcie w/dual dvi

Hp Pavilion Dv9000 Makes Beeping Sound On Startup

My hp pavilion dv9000 makes a beeping sound (one long and two short ones) on startup (screen is black) help? It has been happening for almost 2 weeks now. At first i was able to turn it back on (after a certain amount of time) and it would work perfectly. Now it doesn't turn on at all, just those 3 beeps and a black screen. So i figured that i would have to reinstall windows 7 (completely wiping out everything out of my laptop and reinstalling the program). During the installation i had to restart. So i did and the 3 beeps kept continuing. So it took me 2 hours to turn it back on after that (while the computer was off) i switched the 2 rams around nothing happened. Has my computer finally crapped out on me? Would i have to take it to hp for them to repair it?

Computer Qualification To Open Up Computer Shop

I plan to open up my own computer shop when i leave school (this is my final year. ), And of course, after i get a job in town, to save some money. I would be the "normal" pc shop owner, fix computer hardware/software problems, install hardware, format hard drives, and of course sell computers, computer hardware, and computer software. I am wondering what sort of qualifications i need. I am from new zealand, so i probably won't be aware of certain degrees. I already have qualifications in small business and retail, through a polytechnic, so i am just after what computer qualification would be best. Do you suggest a bachelor degree such as a bachelor of computer engineering, bachelor of information technology, or maybe just a certificate in computer engineering, or something else?!

Connecting Computer To Another Computer To Share Internet

How can i connect my computer to other computer to share internet? Well here is the problem, computer 1 has internet which is a wireless internet that is used by a wireless usb adapter which connects to one of my networks. But computer 2 had a virus so i restored it and now it only has "local connections" and not "wireless connections" in control panel under "network connections" and so computer 2 has no internet on it because i can't connect to anything without having "wireless connections" there. So what i was thinking is using a ethernet cable to connect computer 1 to computer 2 and they can share the internet and they both can have it. So i connected the ethernet cable to both computers and now what do i do? Under local connections on computer 2 it says "unplugged" and i'm confused! How can i make it so both computers have internet and none of them connects to a router through wires? I know there is a way, computer one has fully working internet because it has "wireless connections" in "network connections". All i have to do is plug in my adapter and then connect to my network. If it helps to know, the computers are both windows xp. Are you suppose to configure something now that the cord has them both connected to each other? How do i make it so the internet from computer 1 which is wireless internet, connect to computer 2 using a ethernet cable, make both have internet by sharing computer 1 internet! Idk if u guys get it? Like computer 1 is connected to computer 2 through a ethernet cable, i want computer 2 to have internet aswell, is there a way that the internet can be shared like that from computer 1? Please help me and with good instructions! This is my very first time doing this, and i need internet on my other computer, this is my only chance left!

How To Hack Someones Computer From Your Computer ?

Now i know this is usually against forum rules, but the reason i'm asking this is to test and see if my firewall's working. I don't think that would be against forum rules, would it? Basically i want to know if there's anyone on here that i know fairly well who knows how to do it, that i can pm my ip addy to, and then they can try to hack into my computer, and if they succeed they'll just leave a folder on my desktop that has a textfile that says "you've been hacked" or something along those lines, then advise me on the forum on how to improve my security.

What Do You Do With An Old Computer ?

So what do guys do with your old computers? I used to go and give them to members of my family, but now everyone's got one. Parts i've kept in a box, but i'm not sure what to do with a working system. Junk, scrap, or throw in the garage? Or do guys go for a mad mod project?

Right now it just sits in a corner, waiting to be scrapped for parts, but i'd like to put it to good use if i could. The culprit in question is a 466 celeron with a 6 and 2 gig hd and 64 megs of ram.

I7 Computer

1) what will you be doing with this pc? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? Etc
Mostly gaming, some minor photoshop/media perhaps. 2) what's your budget? Are tax and shipping included?
I suppose under $1500

3) where do you live?

4) what exact parts do you need for that budget? Cpu, ram, case, etc. Please be very specific. Everything, building a new comp. 5) if reusing any parts, what parts will you be reusing? Please be especially specific about the power supply. List make and model. Using a 52" sony bravia 1080p tv that we already have sometimes. 6) will you be overclocking?

7) what size monitor do you have and/or plan to have?
It should be either 21. 5" widescreen, i might use a 17" for dual if i can figure it out, and sometimes a 52" tv. 8) when do you plan on building/buying the pc?
Beginning of summmer - june 12 ish

9) what features do you need in a motherboard? Raid? Firewire? Crossfire or sli support? Etc. Sli, enough space between the processor socket and memory modules so that the cpu heatsink doesn't eat my memory cards!

10) do you already have a legit and reusable/transferable os key/license?
I have an xp install, intend on buying vista 64 bit so i can use 6gb. I'm thinking of making this pc. http://secure.

Using Your Computer As A Tv

The next comp i'm gonna build is for my boys' room. I want to be able to use it as their tv as well to save space. We have cable, and therefore have a cable box. If i install a tv tuner card in my computer, do i just run the cable from the box to the card as i would to the old tv? Do i still change the channel through the box? Does the card just basically route the signal to the monitor?

Computer Not Getting Right Ip

I was using the net on my computer one morning, that night it didn't work anymore! There is no longer a light on the port where i am connected to the router, but the link light is on. I am using my other computer to write this message. Both are connected to the same router, but only the other one is stuffed. The dhcp is now automatically set to 196. X. X. X. X. I have tryed ipconfig /release and /renew but both don't work. I have installed and run even though i am running windows xp pro, nothing happened. I have reinstalled windows, nothing. Any help in this matter would be terrific.

Fly In The Computer

I heard some weird buzzing noise and then i saw the little fly ontop of my video card. How he managed to brave the gauntlet of cables, packplates and fans is a mystery to me but he's definately not leaving anytime soon. I could try to blast him into my cooler with a jet of compressed air but the sucker is fast. Would there be any harm if a dead fly lands on the mobo or something?

My computer turned on fine this morning but about 15 minutes ago i tried it and when i start it up, it stays at the screen where it shows me what kind of motherboard i have.

Car Computer

I'm in the process of transforming my 2007 pontiac g5 into a fully functional carputer. What i want it to do is: play music original car head unit (will be done through auxilary), play movies, be a fully functional computer, touchscreen, gps, look cool. How i want it done, mount a touchscreen above the head unit in the car, approximately 6-7 inch screen, which will support all the needed functionality. Have the computer be discrete in the car (possibly under a seat) while still working off the car battery. Fast boot up would be nice, but its not a thing that i'm deeply concerned about. Probably run on windows xp (unless there are other suggestion). I would like it to be so when i open up the glove compartment, the dvd drive is mounted inside so i can put dvds/cds ect in it. The music will be played through the cars speakers by taping into the auxiliary jack from inside the dash. I want to do all this (minus the touchscreen) for about 100 dollars. I know that sounds cheap but i am broke and have no job. If you can help me out and find me the things needed (minus a touchscreen, i can do that on my own) that would be great. Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Computer Just Shuts Off

A couple hours ago, i tap the front of the case with my foot, and everything just shuts off. I tried turning it back on and nothing happened. So i turned the power supply off and back on and tried again. This time, it tried to start and then immediately shutoff again. The power supply has a blue light in it and that goes out immediately as well. I can see 2 yellow lights on the motherboard are lit when the power supply is turned on. Do you think my power supply blew or is it something else? Any way i can test?

Computer Shutdown

I have a intel 850gb mobo and i formatted my hdd 2x thinking it was a bad install. When i hit start, shudown, not restart the computer goes thru the powering down phrase i hear the familiar click of the hdd whichs turns it off and bam, the hdd is off but the mobo and fans including cpu are still on. I replaced the power supply to no avail. I have to hit the reset button then the power button to quickly too turn off computer. Strange, im thinking the mobo is not sending the signal to the power supply commanding it to turn off. My hdd is new and was working finr, i like to reformat my hdd 2x a year to clean off the mess.

Computer Just Died

I was working on my computer when all of a sudden the blue screen of death appeared. It started doing a "memory dump" and i waited about 30 seconds and then i tried crtl, alt, del and nothing happened so i just held the power button until it turned itself off. When i turn it back on, the computer starts just like normal, the power light comes on and the fans start up, but the monitor stays in standby mode, nothing ever comes up on the monitor. I have a second computer connected to this monitor via a kvm switch, so i know the monitor is fine. Any ideas what is wrong or how i can diagnose what the problem is? I mean if you can't see the screen, what can you do? Is is the motherboard or what?
