    A lot of Beepen and Tooten But No Booten?

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    You start your computer and all you get is a blank screen and some beeping noise.You panic because you think you have some very serious computer problems. Actually, your concern is justified. The reason your computer is beeping is because it has a serious problem that prevents it from communicating via its standard output, the screen. But don't lose hope, here are some troubleshooting steps you can take.

    The beeps coming from your computer are most likely not coming from your sound board or on-board sound circuitry. They are coming from a tiny PC speaker mounted inside the computer case for the specific purpose of communicating with humans when it can't communicate via the screen.

    You may have noticed that every time you start your computer the beeps come in the same pattern. They are not random beeps. The computer is sending a special beep code. Beep codes are programmed into the computers BIOS (Basic Input Output System). Unfortunately, there is no standard for beep codes. Each BIOS manufacturer has their own patterns. They are not even standard by manufacturer. They vary by the BIOS version, the motherboard, and computer manufacturer.

    Your first step is to look in the information that came with your computer for the meaning of beep codes or for the identity of your BIOS. If you didn't get that information, try to find it at the web site of the manufacturer of your computer. If you can't find it at there, you'll need to open the case of your computer and read the manufacturer's name and BIOS version off the BIOS chip.
