Hi,
 
Normally continuous beeps come because of your RAM problem. First of all you need to confirm whether your RAM is working or not, to do it unplug the power cord and remove the RAM(s) from RAM slots and just plug it again.
 
May be you can clean RAM slots and RAM by using relevant cleaning medium. If it is same as previous after you clean it just try with another RAM, make sure that your RAM is working fine. Check your motherboard manual for more.
 
Thanks.

Hi,

The computer power-on self-test tests the computer to make sure it meets the necessary system requirements and that all hardware is working properly before starting the remainder of the boot process.

If the computer passes the POST the computer will have a single beep (with some computer BIOS manufacturers it may beep twice) as the computer starts and the computer will continue to start normally.

However, if the computer fails the POST, the computer will either not beep at all or will generate a beep code, which tells the user the source of the problem.

Here is a link to a site that displays diagnosis for distinctive beeps for the specific problem.

Hello Friends,

When you turn on your computer, you hear a single beep indicating that the boot process is beginning, taking place and will eventually finish with your operating system greeting you. This is normal and should be expected whenever you turn on your computer.

However, if you turn on your computer and begin hearing random beeps while your system tries to boot, there is something going on with your BIOS that is not normal procedure.

Sometimes your system will load correctly but the beeping will continue, indicating a problem still exists but has not reached a critical level where it will affect your everyday operations. This should never be ignored as it will progressively get worse until it is too late to save your computer system.

When your computer begins to beep at you, it is trying to tell you something is wrong. This is never the first thing people think when it actually happens.

They panic, turn off their computer, turn it on again, and continue to try and boot it not realizing they may be causing more problems for the BIOS than they intended.

When your computer begins to beep, the first thing you want to do is count the beeps and take note of what type of beeps are occurring. This will help you down the line figure out exactly what your computer is trying to tell you.

First and foremost, have you installed any new hardware in your computer in the last month or so? If you answer yes, and your computer has begun to show problems, chances are there is something wrong with the hardware you installed that has started causing problems for the rest of your system.

Take out the hardware, reinstall the old hardware if applicable, and reboot to see if the problem is solved. Also, have you recently moved or hit your computer case?

Sometimes even the simplest movement can cause parts of the hardware to misalignment, such as a RAM chip set being put in improperly, if this is the case, reinstall the hardware and reboot to fix the problem. Chances are, it will boot fine, but if not, continue on.

If that did not solve the problem, a self-started POST (power on self-test) might be necessary. Whenever a computer loads, it runs a POST. This runs through the basic hardware of the system to ensure everything is in working order especially when it comes with the motherboard.

The information that runs down your screen during the booting process is this POST in action. While this is running, you can hit F2 or delete, depending on the system, and enter the BIOS itself.

While you are in the BIOS screen, make sure you are careful not to save the information unless you truly know it is the right course of action. If you accidentally change system settings without knowing what you are doing, you will cause much more harm than good.

You change how the system loads, how the POST runs and many other features when in the configuration screen. In many cases, you can also update your BIOS to the latest version by visiting the manufacturer's web site and downloading an upgrade. Sometimes, this is the safest way to ensure your computer is running up to par.

Thanks.

When computer creates beep sound then it means there is something wrong. Beep sounds indicate that a certain part or components in the Central Processing Unit is failing. There are different category and variety of beep sounds, how long it beeps, counts, and its characteristic.

Once beep sound is identified then you need to work out on the specific area that allegedly damaged. You may need to check hardware inside if it's in the correct slots, RAM, VGA, Fan, Hard drives and also by checking the BIOS.

The common ways to go to BIOS is by doing the following:

  • Press the key to enter setup.
  • Setup Keys.
  • Enter Bios by pressing the key.
  • Press the key to enter BIOS setup.
  • Press the key to access BIOS.
  • Press the key to access system configuration.

There are also shortcuts key to access BIOS on the new model:

  • F1, F2, Del, Esc, F10


For older computer's modem:

  • Ctrl + ALT + Esc key.
  • Page up key.
  • Page down key.
  • Ctrl + ALT + Enter key.
  • Ctrl + ALT + Ins.

This Basic Input/Output System is a chip inside located on all computer motherboards contains set-up on how your computer should boot-up and some detailed instructions.

In this area, you can pin-point the problems of why your computer is creating a beep sound. So, starting on here is your first step to success.
