Computer never stops beeping or has solid beep

Keyboard or other non POST issue

BeepingIf the computer appears to be working normally (you have a display and it is booting) 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 this 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 your 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.
