Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

1 long beep, no bootup. I just get a test screen.

\015 I power up my pc, and I get 1 long beep. But it will not boot up.\015

Answers :

The beep you hear is known as a bios beep code. It indicates the failure to post and can be used to determine what kind of error is preventing your startup, but you need to know what kind of bios or motherboard you have installed. You should be able to look this up at the eMachines support site, but using your model number to find the original specifications of the system.
Then use this article to troubleshoot the error. Also helpful may be this article and this site.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

1 long beep = error code. 1 tiny beep equals POST

Do you get picture?

Depending on your bios that can mean different things. I'll take a crack at it cause most of times its 1 of 2 things. Either your video card is not seated right or your RAM is bad or not seated right.

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
