    A lot of Beepen and Tooten But No Booten? - Although there are...


    (Page 2 of 4 )

    Although there are thousands of different computer and motherboard manufacturers, fortunately there are only a few BIOS manufacturers. Below is a list of the major BIOS manufacturers websites.

    AMI (American Megatrends, Inc.) www.megatrends.com Phoenix Technologies www.ptltd.com IBM www.us.pc.ibm.com

    If you can't find useful information about your computer's beep codes at the computer manufacturer's or BIOS manufacturer's web site, you'll need to troubleshoot by process of elimination.

    A single beep when your computer starts is not an error. It's to test the PC speaker. If you don't hear a single beep, either your computer's power supply, motherboard, or PC speaker is bad.

    It's unlikely that you have a bad keyboard, but a bad keyboard can cause a computer to emit beep codes, and changing out the keyboard is cheap and easy.

    Open your the case of your computer and perform a close inspection of the motherboard with a magnifying glass. It's unlikely but possible that something like a staple has been sucked into the case and is causing a short.

    A common cause of beep codes is a problem with RAM. Make sure the memory modules are installed correctly by gently but firmly pushing down on each module. If that doesn't fix it, remove all but one memory module.
