If you are hearing constant beeps or a solid beep sound, review the troubleshooting options below for help on resolving the issue.

Keyboard or another non-POST issue

Beeping

If the computer appears to be booting and working normally, apart from the constant beeping or solid beep, it is likely you are encountering a keyboard or system case issue.

Not passing POST

If your computer is not booting or you are not getting any display, your computer is not passing the POST. Often the beep code is caused by one of the following reasons.

  1. One or more of the fans are not working or do not have a power connection connected to them. Open your computer and verify that all power connections are firmly connected. Verify each of the fans are working by leaving the case open and turning on the computer. If your video card has a fan, it's likely it also has a power connector on the edge of it. Make sure a power connector is also firmly connected to the video card.
  2. Computer is not passing the POST because of improper connections or damaged hardware. Follow all POST troubleshooting steps.
