A friends computer beeps 3 times then pauses then 3 beeps then pause so on at start up. It takes about 4 go for them to get it going. The computer is brand new (they haven't had it for a week yet). We are wonder what this beeping satnds for and is it a hardware problem? They are just don't want to take it back just yet just incase it is a normal thing.

Just to add I am not sure on the made, model etc.

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

The only good beep code is ONE beep, this is the system's POST beep saying everything is OKAY!

Any other beep codes means there is a hardware issue.

I could provide you with information of what the beep code means, however without knowing the system manufacturer's name and model number, that would just be a shot in the dark.

Until you can provide that information, there's not much more that can be said, except you have a hardware problem.

Bruce.

If they haven't had it more than a week then they could always return it to the store. There's also the option of a warranty.

Note: If they got it from Best Buy do not let Geek Squad touch it.
