Re: 5 Beep codes

What model of PC?


and what OS are you using XP or Vista?

on some systems 5 beeps =:

5 beeps Processor failure. The system CPU has failed.


but knowing the right model it may mean somehting else.

Re: 5 Beep codes

I have the same issue. It is on a small form factor DX5150. Sometimes it will power up to a blue screen but mostly to a flashing red light and 5 beeps.

Re: 5 Beep codes

In my case...this was a memory error. I removed and switched positions of my memory modules. System booted without error. The memory may just need to be reseated:)

Re: 5 Beep codes

If the computer beeps before you see anything on the screen it's a hardware failure and it does not have anything to do with if you are running Windows XP, Vista or Linux.

You simply don't get that far in the startup procedure.

Try to reinstall all memory cards, graphical card, network card and whatever else is installed on the motherboard. And even the processor if you are brave enough to do that. I would usually wait with touching the processor.

Re: 5 Beep codes

Jessica,

I had the same problem I ended up taking the Ram out of both sockets and reinserting them in the 2 blue sockets instead of the 2 black sockets and it booted up recognizing the new ram.

Re: 5 Beep codes

5 beeps means a memory error:

- Bad seated memory
- Bad memory
- Bad motherboard
- Bad motherboard and memory

Try to find dust in memory sockets
The easy way: install one by one the modules (if you have more than one)
