Theres a constant beeping sound everytime I log on. I've checked the fan and its not that. The full motherboard has been replaced, but i am still getting this sound!

Could it be the new Trojan virus that is affecting the Windows XP Service Pack 2?

Please Help!

According to one of my PC books, if it's IBM Bios, a constant beep, or constant short repetitive beeps means the power supply isn't working right. If you don't know which Bios, watch the screen closely when booting up, it should be there somewhere. Borrow another P/S from somebody to try.

it could also be a heat warning. There are BIOSes out there that can beep on their own, it then doesn't matter if you're in Windows or not, they'll give a constant warning about either a fan not spinning correctly, a heat problem or something else through the PCs speaker. (Thus, not your external speakers).

Hi -

I am having a similiar problem with my pc.  I have a Compaq Presario and it's running Windows XP Professional (I think!)  Normally it just sleeps when I'm not using it, and I hit the space bar and go.  Today, when I hit the space bar the monitor didn't power up.  I tried rebooting and eventually unplugged the pc.  When I powered it back up, the speakers came on with a very loud beeping sound, but neither the monitor or keyboard powered up.

I removed all the plugs from the Presario and plugged them into my old pc (a Gateway) and everything is working (that's how I'm online now!)  Does this sound like it could also be an issue with the heat or power supply?

I appreciate any info you may have!

Lots of beeps with nothing starting up? In general, that's a bad CPU. The motherboard should still be good, else it wouldn't be beeping to you. So check your warranty on the machine and see if you can get a new CPU that way, else you'll have to buy a new one yourself.
