Default Re: beep

When are the beeps coming from the motherboard? Beeps at startup correspond to various different problems with your computer, depending on the sequence of beeps.

Or is it beeping during normal usage?

A continuous beep could indicate bad memory. Does the computer boot up at all or does it just beep at start up?

Mkae sure everything thing inside the computer is fully seated in it's slots.

If you have multiple sticks of memory, try booting one at a time to weed out a bad stick.
