Hello everyone,

I have problems. My computer beeps repeatedly at startup with no pattern. It sometimes sounds like a sick beep. My computer also takes forever to start up & forever to shut down. I have ran virus scans, spyware scans, registry scans & optimizer, diognostic test you name it and no luck. Anyone have any insite? Please????

What is the make and model of your computer? Although, the beeps that you hear upon start-up may not seem to have a distinct pattern to you, they usually mean some sort of impending failure. It will help us diagnose the problem if you can tell us this information. The fact that start-ups and shut-downs are very slow is another indication that your system is ailing.
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

If its a high pitched beeping noise, its probably becuase the cpu is reaching its thermal shutdown limit, check all fans for dust etc ;).

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop.
If the beeping is a code it changes from one start up to the next. It beeps until windows begin to start up.

At start up my computer beeps 5 times then after a pause beeps about 26 times straight. I am confused. I have re-installed windows, upgraded my bios & cleaned my fan. After I upgraded my bios I recieved a message about my fan being dirty. That did not work. I also ran diognostics at startup and everything passed including my fan. Does anyone have any insight?

Thanks
