I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Answer: My inspiron 5010 makes continuous beep sound when I press power button and it wont Start

If it's a continuous single beep, it means the mainboard is bad. If it's some other pattern such as four beeps - pause - four, etc., post the sequence and someone can help you interpret the error.

I have a DELL XPS laptop that makes beeping sounds and the screen is still black after I pressed the power button.
It makes 5 beeping sounds per interval and goes on until it shuts itself down. What should I do and who should I contact to help me fix my laptop?

Answer:My Laptop Makes Beep sound when I press power button and it wont Start

Hi AhLong
Thanks for writing to us. 
5 beeps usually means CMOS failure, now it could be the battery failure or the motherboard failure. If your system is under warranty we can get it repaired or else you can check with a local Dell authorized repair center and get it checked. 
You can try another CMOS battery if available.
Do provide us your system tag#, email address and name via private message.

Regards

My laptop is Dell Inspiron 15 5547.

4GB Memory
1TB Hard Drive
Intel Core I7 (Dont know what generation).

It happens when i open the laptop and fix the wire problem in WLAN. So I detached the parts in order...

Battery
Hard Drive
2x 2GB Memory Card
Fan
Keyboard
Monitor

The reason i detached the parts because the wire of WLAN runs thru the monitor and i cant get thru to fix it unless i remove the monitor. Now when i put all the parts back in the descending order, i just got a beep and i got no display it just blank, I listen very carefully and got 4 beeps fading. Can you help me? Don't know what to do.

Answer:Making Beep sound 4 times repeatedly, when I press power button and it wont Start

4 beep sound may indicate a Ram failure according to source : www.dell.com/.../en
Try and reseat the RAMs. Or try to use 1 RAM to check which RAM is having faulty.
Hope this helps.

Hi, I own a Dell Inspiron N5110 i5 processor laptop with 4 GB RAM and 500 GB hard disk. Its getting 14 months since I bought it.From the last few days, I could see that the machine makes beep sound on start up till the windows starts. The sound gets disappeared after OS starts. Especially if I turn on the lap from hibernation mode, some time rebooting also make the beep sound. However, I observed a similar low tone inside the system even when the machine is running. I have been using a cooler also to reduce the heat, all keys are working fine no thing is jammed, I have performed the dell H/W diagnostics test all the results were passed. Drivers are all updated, the processor fan i also running correctly. I am wondering what can be the reason.
Please do share your thoughts and suggestions about this issue.

Answer:Continuous beep sound from my Dell inspiron n 5110 laptop on start up ??

I have tried something from another forum that I found, but do not have the link so I cannot copy and paste or give credit to the poster.  This is what I did:
1) Unplug all power from the laptop
2) Remove the battery
3) Hold down the power button for approximately 15 seconds.
4) Reattach the battery and/or plug in the power supply.
5) Power on the laptop.
This solved my problem.

Hi, so I have had a powering issue with my previous power supply which was the Corsair CX600W so i purchased a newer power supply - the EVGA SuperNova G2 550W. I unhooked my old psu, hooked up my new one and the PC turned on and I turned it back off from the power button on the case. I also hava a boot drive problem so I unplugged the sata cables from my SSD and wanted to try to turn on the PC with only my HDD. I did this with the PSU switched off and the power cord unplugged. When I tried turning the PC on again the PSU made a clicking noise and nothing turns on. The motherboard Led's are lit up so it is definitely getting power but when I go to turn the computer on it just makes a quick clicking noise and nothing turns on. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Hey guys, just a shot in the dark question, but:

I put a fresh install of windows 7 64-bit on this PC I built for my sister, and everything appears to go fine. However, after updating the bios, and installing the gfx card drivers, she tells me that when she presses the power on button, she gets a blue screen, the computer reboots, and then everything is fine.

Ideas as to what that might mean? If this is too little to go on, I'll head over there asap and go through the whole process, I just want a starting point.

Thank you for your time

Small edit: the system specs of my profile are the ones for her computer.

Answer:Press power button, blue screen after beep, then fine.

Hi guys!

First of all, I'm new here. I signed up to this forum because of an issue with my little brothers's PC. I've found some threads about the issue but I wasn't able to solve it with the given information.

So, my brother is just playing a game and all of a sudden his PC gives a long beep, and starts rebooting. Unfortunatly after this incident the pc won't start up at all, it's just giving this never ending beep.

knowing that he has an Asus p5n-mx MoBo and an Award BIOS I starten looking for answeres.
The error should indicate that there is an issue with the installed RAM. So I removed it and replaced it with a spare strip. But that didn't solve the problem. So I took out the Videocard and tried to use the onboard chipset to boot up. Still got the continuous beep. I removed all the RAM and tried to boot up. The result of that the 1 long beep and 2 short beeps error code as repeating loop. Now I am not sure if that is the indication for a not properly installed VGA card but it said so in the beep-code list.

Pc specs:
Asus p5n-mx motherboard
Award BIOS
Intel duo core E7300 2,66Ghz
Corsair 1024 MB DDR2 667Mhz RAM (2x)
320 GB 7200 RPMWestern digital HDD
ASUS EN9400GT 512MB VGA card
Windows XP Home Edition
It would be great if you guys could help out with this one!
 

Answer:PC wont't start up except for a long continuous beep.

Hi I just installed some new ram on my computer going from 1gb (2x512mb) to 2gb (an extra 2x512mb). The memory is all Geil 512mb PC2-5300. I have tried every combination I can think of yet whenever I have the new memory installed the computer wont start and there will just be a continuous beep from my motherboard (ASUS P5nd2 -SLI). I have sent the new memory back however it was sent back to me telling me it was fine!

Does anyone have any suggestions? I would really appreciate it, thank you!

Answer:Installed new ram, wont start, continuous beep

Post motherboard specs. You may need to adjust the memory timings to get it to work.

Check the motherboard manufacturer's combatibility list. Some RAM will not work, or will have problems with certain motherboards.

You could have a bad RAM slot on the motherboard.

You will need to test each stick one at a time in the same slot, to make certain they will all work with the board.

Are you absolutely certain all 4 sticks are exactly the same ?

Since the old pair works, trade them out for the new pair. If the are good, and exactly the same as the old pair, they should work in the old memory slots. If they do, move them to the (previously unused) memory channel and see if the new memory will work in the new channel. if they do, then the issue is not the new memory, but using more than 2 sticks at the same time.

Then focus on getting 3 sticks to play nice.

At some point things will stop working, and indicate the direction of the problem.

Hello,

This is Varun from India. Could anyone please help me fix a problem which has been haunting me from the last two days. This problem is currently occuring in my satellilte Pro A200. Actually the problem is that there is a continuous beep sound from an internal speaker during start-up that is when the name TOSHIBA appers at the time of starting and moreover it freezes there right on that screen. But , I somehow kept using my system by pressing F5 or F9 and then letting it start manually in NORMAL MODE.

But, i can't keep doing this all the time. And moreover, this beep sound blows continuously only while starting the system and it goes on hanged up in the same screen until i press either F5 or F9. I kept restoring my system but to no use. Could any one please help me out in this.

Sincerely waiting for the reply.....

Answer:Satellite Pro A200: A continuous beep sound during start up and freezing

Hello

To be honest it is very strange issue. Is some external device connected to your notebook?
Have you tried to update BIOS to latest version?

Sorry but I believe in such case there is no much you can do. Maybe BIOS update, clean OS installation. That?s all.
Maybe you should contact nearest service and ask what it can be.

Hi, i am using DEL Inspiron 15 since Feb'14 and there was no issue till yesterday, when my laptop wont start and is making beep sound (7 beeps) on power up. Can you please help.

Answer:My laptop won't start and makes beep sound

Seven beeps usually means CPU Cache test failure or Processor failure. I like to suggest removing the battery from system and see if that will make a difference. Please follow steps below:
1. Power off the system. Remove all peripherals from the system, remove AC adapter and then battery.
2. Press the "Power On" button for 15 seconds to release Static Flea Power. Replace battery, and adapter, and then power on system. Hopefully computer starts normally and there're no more beeps.

A friend of mine has to press the power button twice to start his computer. The first time it acts like it's going to start up and then stops before window Vista loads . After he starts it again, it comes to the screen where it informs him that windows vista didn't start properly the first time and of course follows wiith the options. He simply clicks start normally and it then starts up. Any idea whats happening? Could his power supply be going?
 

Answer:Has to press power button twice to start computer.

Does this happen the exact same way every time as you describe it or can it take longer/shorter for it to require a second boot? This would help to indicate whether it's a power issue or something perhaps hard drive related with loading system files on vista startup. Try getting into safe mode on the first try and see if this still happens, and if it does not then it is probably a system file issue and would need to run chkdsk.

My laptop, Inspiron 17R, started making a clicking sound when I pressed power button. I'd shut it down and try again a few times and could sometimes get lucky to get it to load up, unfortunately now its not loading up at all. I've tried removing battery and putting it back. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

Answer:Inspiron 17R makes clicking sound and wont turn on

Sounds like it's most likely a bad mainboard -- try powering up without a battery.  If it will but won't with the battery installed, the battery is bad -- if it won't boot on AC only, chances are the mainboard is bad.

While doing a Google search for a solution I seem to have encountered a number of people who experienced the same issue. Can you also explain why this happens with this particular Dell laptop? Is it a model flaw?

HI
Long time no see, friends.
My beloved I570 is acting up, probably some sort of Alzheimer or similar.
Here is what happened, will try to be short.
Initially I was using PCIE SATA card to attach 4 more HDDs to the system, then SATA card died (already second in this PC), so I decided to remove all extra HDDs sitting in the case.
Did all standard precautions, including grounding etc. In order to remove HDDs I had to clear MOBO of a lot of cables and remove GPU. Long story short, after I put everything back together and attempted to boot up, I got long continuous beep and WIN7 sliding bar freezes almost at the end, no further activity, just a long beep. BIOS was not accessible as well.
So, I removed GPU, pull out MOBO 24 pin PSU cable, removed CMOS battery, did multiple 30 sec press and hold power button thing, left everything dead completely for about 30 minutes - completely reset system clock and all BIOS settings to default. Also, swap RAM (I have 2 sticks in slots 3 and 4) places. Put everything back, fired up, went to BIOS and fixed everything, DONE, rebooted and everything went back to normal.
Multiple restarts were OK, did also a few cold reboots with some minutes apart - all seems to be normal. Turn it off for a day or so.
Now problem is back again, like nothing happened.
Please, help if someone actually can. I checked multiple thread here and all over the WEB. My keyboard is clean, RAM was resettled, all connectors are firmly attached. This doesn't make any sense.

Hi,
My laptop here is a Dell Inspiron 15, 3000 series. 
The laptop itself works perfectly fine, I am able to get into windows (which I installed myself, it originally came with Ubuntu). 
Occasionally though, it will do a BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE BEEP BEEP BEEP PAUSE (repeats).
This happens on boot and sometimes when I am using it. Sometimes it turns off suddenly when I am shifting the computer around. It's extremely loud.

What is causing this? The sound seems to be coming from around the area the Memory banks are under the laptop, but nothing seems to suggest that anything is wrong.
I took a suggestion and used FN+Power to do Hardware Diagnostics which said nothing is wrong.

What else can I try?

Thanks!

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15 - 3000 series - Beep Beep Beep Pause Beep Beep Beep

Hi,
I’d suggest that you follow the steps mentioned below and check if the beep pattern repeats.

Switch off the computer.
Disconnect the AC adapter from the system.
Remove the battery from the computer.
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds.
Then connect back all the peripherals and check if the beep pattern repeats and reply us with the beep count.

If you still receive 3 Beeps on the system then it indicates System board failure.. You will have to replace it on the laptop.
Please let me know the findings.

Hi,

I have a Qosmio G10. It's worked fine up until recently. Now when I start it up, I hear a continuous beep. There is also no screen image.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks

Martin

Answer:Qosmio G10 - continuous beep on start up

I think there is a problem in the hardware configuration.
Did the laptop receive a shock recently?
The laptop beeps because the checks of the bios detected an anomaly.
What you can easily do is to check that at least the RAM is correctly inserted in its place. It happened to me once: I did not inserted correctly the additional RAM that I added, and the laptop beeped loudly!
If it does not solve the problem=> toshiba service.

Just faced a rather strange issue, but not really an issue, just different system behaviour than expected. System:W520 Batteries:55++ connected27++ connected Power adapter:Unplugged No other accessories connected. Scenario:I was using the system till it power itself off due to low power (0% reached for both batteries). i.e. Ungraceful Windows shutdown. Then upon pressing the power on button, the LEDs flashes, no THINKPAD logo or BIOS message appears, system appears to then restart again, and the LEDs flash again...and loops until it was no longer able to even attempt to POST. Expected behaviour:Either display the message that says "Battery level is too low".OrDon't loop (this is the behaviour when only the 55++ battery is connected at 0%) Why does having the 27++ would make the system go through this looping cycle?

Answer:W520, 55++, 27++, unplugged from power adapter, 0% battery. Press Power button --> power up loops.

Hello Chatbox,
 
I can understand your issue very well, as there is no message comes on the screen which gives you information to plug the power adapter and prevent the laptop to get shut down.
 
You should install Power Manager software and then customize it as per your requirement.
The software can be download from the mentioned below web link.
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/8mu417ww.exe
 
 
Hope, after this laptop will not shut down automatically due to battery backup

I am using dell Inspiron N5010. I am using this laptop for more than 5 years. The laptop worked flawlessly. last week i have changed my Operating system to Windows 10 and installed some drivers. Suddenly my laptop got restarted and keep on  producing beep sound. So manually i turned off my laptop. After a hour switched on my laptop the same beep sound is produced and display is not getting on. In my laptop except center indicator light both the lights have been turned on. Kindly provide a smart solution to get rid of this problem.
Regards,
Swarnesh K

Answer:laptop continuous beep sound on startup

Hi every one,
Recently I purchased new PC,
After installing windows XP Pro SP3 I found that there is a missing button in Power option properties. The missing button is (When I press the sleep button on my computer), I can find only (When I press the power button on my computer).
My system configuration is as follow
Mother board Gigabyte EP45-UD3R Rev 1.1
My graphic card is ATI Radeon HD 5670
Windows XP SP3
RAM 4Gb Kingston DDRII
CPU Core 2 Quad 2.66 GHz
It worth saying that I can shutdown, hibernate or put my PC into sleep mode, so the functions are working but only the button is missing.
I will appreciated very much if some can advise me how to restore the missing button. Is there some option in BIOS that will enable this button?
I contacted Gigabyte customer support, but they directed me to Microsoft, I also contacted ATI but they directed me to Microsoft or BIOS settings. In my BIOS I can't find any option that may affect this button. Any advise will be appreciated
Best regards

Answer:[SOLVED] Button of (When I press sleep button) is not available in my Power option pr

Does the case actually have a separate Sleep Button? I suspect it's not even connected, as the motherboard manual doesn't show a connection for a Sleep Button, only a Power Button.
Windows Power Options won't list it, as it doesn't exist.

If you have a Sleep Button on the keyboard, it might not be listed in Power Options either. That would be up to the Driver software to add that option. You may have to use the software that came with the keyboard to configure the sleep button on the keyboard.

Hi Raj,
4 beeps is the indication of memory failure. Please reseat the memory & check. If the issue persists, place one memory at a time and check. Try both the memory modules in both the slots. This will help us to isolate which memory slot or memory is causing the issue.

No booting sound, no keyboard LED, no nothing. Removing the battery and power cord, pressing power button 10 times in a 1 second interval, then holding it for 30 seconds hasnt helped. Any tips what I can do furthermore? GreetingsDix

Madhumitha, I'm not very good with Laptops, but I suspect you have pressed a function key to turn on some feature, probably by mistake. Most likely your manual can explain it. You may try holding down the function key (Fn) and pressing X and see if that solves it.

I have a custom built computer, been working fine for two years. Comes last week, a storm passed by my house and power went out. When I come home from work I try to turn it on and no joy. I remember that I had 7 years warranty on my corsair AX1200i PSU. So I did a warranty claim, comes today and put new PSU and still no joy. Things I have tried are, re-seat the RAM also CPU, only 1 RAM. And no joy. When I press the power button theres nothing. No lights no leds. When I press the self test button several times, once in a while I see lights and fans working. I tried Memok on motherboard and no joy. One thing I did notice was when I remove the 4 pin CPU cable from PSU, the self test works instantly but the power button still doesnt work. Nothing, also did jumper on power l, reset CMOS. Could this be my CpU fried? Or the motherboard? I still need to take it out from case and check for capacitors etc..

Specs:3930k i7 CPU LGA 2011 6 core.

Ok so here's the situation :

my friend's PC suddenly stopped working something like a month ago. He took it to some local computer repair shop who diagnosed a dead mobo and PSU.

They told him his mobo was now impossible to find and since I could get my hands on one fairly easily he asked me to repair it for him.

So basicly I changed his PSU and ordered a new INTEL D865GLC Socket 478 (his mobo)... I just received the damn thing and even with the brand new mobo the PC does the exact same **** :

I press the power button and absolutely nothing happens, nothing! Even the fans stay idle . What could be the cause? I even tried shorting the POWER SW pins with a screwdriver to make sure it wasn't the case Power Button but in vain.

I tried swapping mem sticks, changing PSU, tried removing HDD, DVD drive and GPU... no help there either.

Could it be a dead CPU?

Dell Inspiron 15R (5537) suddenly wouldn't want to start. When boot up, nothing seem to appear, blank screen, no logo, no text, nothing. there is a continuous beeping, it not 2 beep or 5 beep or any number of beep, it just beep continuously, never ending, until I turn off the laptop. 
Did some searching around on the web, forum, and so far I attempted:
-Checked ram and hard-drive to see if it fully connect.
-Turn off computer, unplug battery and ac power, press the power button for 30 sec.
still haven't resolve the problem yet.
Next, I try to do a Pre-boot System Assessment, FN+Power. Took SEVERAL attempt to finally got it to run Pre-boot System Assessment. Hold FN + Power, hear beeping, turn it off, Hold FN + Power, hear beeping, turn it off.
Did that for about 20 times and finally got Pre-boot System Assessment instead of the beeping.

Answer:Dell Inspiron 15R wont turn on (continuous beeping)

This paper discusses troubleshooting steps for notebooks that are not turning on.  Typically it could be one of three issues,  No power (no power to the notebook), No post (the system has power but is not fully turning on), or No boot (the system has power, it is turning on, but it is not booting to the Operating system).
From your post it is obvious that the notebook has power,  but it isn't fully turning on.  I would have to say that this is a No post problem. This paper will go over further troubleshooting steps to help determine the problem.
If the notebook is not starting up or showing a blank screen:

Remove any peripheral devices that are attached to the computer. Peripherals include:

Printers
Scanners
Media Card Readers
Mobile devices such as smart phones or tablets or portable digital assistants or MP3 players

I set my Dell Inspiron laptop (Windows 8) to sleep after 15 minutes (never to hibernate) whether on AC power or battery.
This allows me to take out my laptop from my bag, open the lid, enter my pin and get to work quickly.
One thing that baffles me is that when on AC power, I have to press the power button to "wake" the laptop out of sleep
instead of just pressing a key on the keyboard. The power button is this tiny chicklet metal button that is awkward to press.
Any way to set Windows 8 to wake on keypress when on AC power?
Thanks

Answer:power button press to come out of sleep

You do not find it in Power Options to change power button from doing it? Only know ways if using an external USB device. Should be a sleep button or one of the F buttons or Fn.

Hi guys, I have to press the power button twice on my X60 to boot up after leaving the laptop off for a couple of hours. The first press, the "Z" light & "Battery" light will stay on and nothing will happened. If I press again for the second time, then only the Windows will boot. The weird thing about this is that it only happens when I leave the laptop switched off for a longer period of time. There is no problem if I shutdown the window and press the power button again. Meaning I only press the power button once to boot up again during the short period of power off. Anyone can shed some light to this problem I'm having? My Laptop Specifications  Thinkpad X60Windows XP SP2   Thanks in advance,  Cheers,

Problem still continues, have to press the power button twice to get the Thinkvantage screen.   On the first press - All indicators light up and then went off - the "z" light is on and stable- the "battery" light is on and stable (if the battery pack is in place)- the "adapter" light in on and stable (if the AC adapter is in place)- I can hear t...

If the lid on my computer is closed for a couple of hours or more, opening the lid DOES NOT bring the computer out of sleep mode. I'm assuming that it's in sleep as it wakes almost instantly but simply opening the lid should do that. If the lid has only been closed for a few minutes, it will start up if you open the lid. I have another UltraBook running Windows 10 and you can raise the lid after a couple of days and the computer will come to life but on my new x360 I have to press the power button? Power is set to sleep when the lid is closed.

I know you guys are good on this forum because you have helped me with numberous issues over the last 10 years or so. Any, my HP Pavillion P7-1020 sjust started to act up a little. In the MORNING ONLY, I have to push the power button twice. The first time I push it hte light turns on then off. I push it again and the PC boots up like it should. Over the past few weeks, I have inserted a Blue Ray writer and then changed the cable from VGA to DVI-I. That is when it appeared to start the issue. It does not seem possible that the DVI cable would cause this unless the software on the onboard PC changed. About 4 months ago, I added an additional USB card to give me more slots. had no issues after that. Its only been recently after the Blue Ray. Just wondering where I should start first. Is is a cmos battery going bad. Is it not enough power from the PSU or am I starting with a new issued.
Looking forward to seeing responses. Because its a morning issue only, this may take a while to solve if I have to start disconnecting things. That is why I want you opinion on a place to start.

Answer:Lenovo Y40: Needs to press the power button twice to turn on

Welcome to the Lenovo Community Pedro !
 
Try doing what I call a soft reset of the BIOS. This can be useful in some situations to resolve hardware conflicts Here's how......1. Unplug the charger / adapter 2. Remove the battery. 3. Press and hold the Power Button for 15 seconds. 4. Re-install the battery, plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.
 
If that didn't resolve the problem then I suggest you contact Lenovo Support for warranty service.  From what you have described there is a hardware problem with the laptop that needs fixing.

When I plus in the AC adapter to the charging port, it lights up the white led, then turns to orange as a sign that it's charging.I tried to soft reset by removing the battery and unplugged other peripherals then long pressed the power button for about 30 seconds, plugged in the ac adapter then tried to boot my pc. All this never worked.Sometimes back, the laptop had the same problemonce or twice, and it starts working after some while like a day or two. I never knew what exactly the problem was. This time round, it can't boot yet for three days now and I can't figure out what the problem is. I'm just trying to guess its a motherboard issue but I have no any assurance on this.Please someone help me what might be the problem. I'll highly appreciate.

Pls help me. I use laptop lenovo 3000N100 HCQ. When I press the power-on button, my laptop does not response: it just turns on the power-light and does nothing, no beeps, with black screen. after 5 minutes it starts booting. once it starts booting there is no problem. booting normally.even if i restart again and again there is no problem. problem is only for the frist time BOOTing..  

Answer:laptop not responding for sometime after i press power button

That's very difficult to diagnose without seeing the laptop. It could be a hardware or software issue. Is it under warranty?

Title says it all really. I haven't been able to shutdown my PC for a few months now without holding down the power button for a few seconds. I used to just leave my PC in sleep mode but, when this first started, it would often turn itself off instead of sleeping or enter sleep mode instead of turning off. It's not a major issue, granted, but it is still an annoyance that I would rather have fixed. If aynone knows the steps to attempt to remedy this I would be very grateful!

Answer:PC will not shutdown without continued power button press.

My aunt got a lap top, can't remember the name of it. It's running win7 64-bit.
When you press the power button, instead of turning off, it just goes into standby.

Answer:Lapt top goes in standby when you press power button

RB_Kandy,The function of the power button can be changed in Power Options.Start (orb) ->Control Panel -> (view by: large icons) -> Power Options. I'm on a Vista laptop now because I'm travelling, so you may have to hunt a bit; however, on Vista, in the left column of Power Options is "Choose what the power buttons do."In Windows 7, you may have to choose advanced options for the selected power plan, then scroll down looking for "power button" option and set it to "Shutdown."I hope this helps.
