Hi, everything went on my computer (just a black screen)and was making bleeping noises,now everthing has come back on and everything is back working ok, sometimes it still bleeps, somebody at work told me that the different sounding bleeps tell you what the problems are with my computer, does anyone know if there is a list of these bleeps and tell what the fault or the bleep means

cheers dickd

understanding the bios beep codes is a little complicated, especially since there is no truly uniform standard

beeps that start after the computer has been running are usually heat related, warnings

make sure your computer and all fans are clean and working right

next make sure your computer is getting lot's of fresh cool air

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

You should clean the inside of you're computer this once happend to me.
Just get a can of compressed air at a computer shop or record store.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

PC Hell has a good list of beep codes - AMI and Phoenix BIOS

Also check to see if you have flashing keyboard lights...
