  1. \015\012Clean cooling components that have become clogged with dust. If beeping persists, continue to the next step.\015\012
  2. \015\012Remove a memory module.\015\012If the PC stops beeping, the memory module may be bad, is the wrong type of memory for the motherboard, or was not fully seated/connected. Try reseating the memory into the socket to see if a connection was the problem, otherwise replace the module.\015\012Remove each memory module, replacing the one that was previously removed. Once all modules have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.\015\012
  3. \015\012If your computer has a graphics card, remove it.\015\012If the beep code changes or continues with the same beep pattern, the video card may still be good. reseat the video card into its socket and continue to the next step. \015\012If the beep code goes away, the video card may be bad. Try reseating the video card, making sure it is fully locked into the connector on the motherboard. If problems persist, replace the card.\015\012
  4. \015\012Remove a PCI card.\015\012If the beep code goes away, the card may be bad. Try reseating the card into its connector on the motherboard. If problems persist, replace the card.\015\012Remove each PCI card, replacing the one that was previously removed. Once all cards have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.\015\012
  5. \015\012Disconnect hard drives and CD/DVD drive cables (IDE/ATA) from the motherboard socket.\015\012If the beep code goes away, the cable or socket is probably bad. Look for bent pins inside the IDE socket on the motherboard and straighten any bent pins. Try reseating the cables into the connectors. If problems persist, the drive itself may be bad and may need to be replaced.\015\012Disconnect each drive cable, replacing the one that was previously disconnected, until all have been checked. Once all connections have been checked, if beeping persists, continue to the next step.\015\012
  6. \015\012At this point, the problem probably involves the motherboard or processor. Make sure any jumpers on the motherboard have not fallen off their pins and into the case. Make sure jumpers are set correctly.
