Re: computer buzzer going off

Check monitor cables, but i have a bad feeling that the GPU might of moved check that it is fully in the PCI slot, if not then try another GPU, if it works then i think the original could beaten the dust...esp. with the buzzing not a good sign...

Re: computer buzzer going off

the beeping is a bit like morse code

you need to know the brand of motherboard and the pattern of beeps to match the diagnostic code with the likely fault. As said above check everything (graphics, ram etc) is seated correctly and all the fans are turning.

Some branded pc now have flashing power leds so you can determine the fault without opening the case. Fault usually involves opening the case to fix though

Re: computer buzzer going off

A couple of motherboards have 4 LED's on the back for error codes and one or 2 even have dual 8 segment displays!

Last time I had a beeping issue the GPU was dead, 300 worth of GPU dead at 11 months old; thank goodness for 12 month warranties!
