Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Long beep followed by 2 short beeps. Then computer hangs. What is the issue?


Answers :

I do not know what model laptop you have, but generally IBM beep code of 1L, 2S and a blank screen lead to sequential replacement of:
\015\0121.System Board
\015\0122. LCD Panel
\015\0123. DIMM
\015\012
\015\012This is per their field service manual. In standard desktop PCs this code would indicate a bad or mis-seated video adapter. (hence a laptop system board).
1 long 2 short beeps means faulty graphics card.\015\012In most laptops graphics card is integrated to motherboard and not replacable.\015\012So depending on laptop make/model you will need new graphics card or motherboard.

Hi there. I have a problem with my Thinkpad T30 type 2366, for which I would appreciate any suggestions to rectify. A few days ago, I booted it up but, instead of it doing so, it emitted a series of beeps and then 'hung' there with a blank screen. The beep pattern was as follows: BEEEEP--BEEP-BEEP-BEEP--BEEP-BEEP-BEEP--BEEEEP. I.e., 1 long beep, 3 short ones, 3 further short ones and then 1 long one. Looking on the net, I saw a post that suggested removing the battery, then pressing the on/off b
