The sequence of the beeps is important; each particular beep sequence is a BIOS POST error code which points to a specific problem (bad ram, faulty drive, etc.).
We can tell you what the error code means if you can tell us the make and version of your BIOS, and descibe the beep code (for example: one long beep-two short beeps-one long beep).
Has there ever been a reply on this matter?
I happen to have experienced yesterday same problem as len11.
[Moderator's note: please reference this previous thread]
I have an IBM Netvista 6280/27U.
The pc was turned on and used almost normally, except for a BIOS error dialog box.
When the pc was shutdown and restarted later that day, it only gave on long beep, three short beeps.
I am a pc user and do not know to check the version of the BIOS.
I appreciate your help in this.
