BIOS Error Beeps, Messages, and Codes

1 long beep is shown at the bottom of the list as being
"POST passed no errors"

The DRAM thing is 1 beep (short) at the top of the list.
Do you have any other symptoms to say ????

Static electricity from your body can ruin the
sensitive electronic components in computers.
If you have been touching anything inside.

Mostly on Desktop computers----
DUST collects inside computers, and can cause hardware
damage, overheating, faulty fans, faulty drives
Is yours clean.????
^^^ Some pictures ^^^

Look for leaking or bulging capacitors on the motherboard.

Laptop or Desktop computer ???

If a desktop, turn it off, remove all external hardware, look inside
for excessive dust and look for bad capacitors on motherboard.

Try computer ON without the external hardware attached.

Check to see that Case and/or CPU fans are running.

Then the P.S. Mostly a voltmeter would be used to check ---
How PC Power Supplies Work

I would disconnect all non-essential hardware from the Power Suppy and the Motherboard. then power computer back on.
Any Beeps then ??? If not, then attach each piece of hardware one at a time, and testing for a beep by applying power on.

Beware that static electricity in your body can ruin computer parts.

I have about run out of suggestions. Watch for help from others.

It would help if you provided some info about your system...make/model? The beeping pattern will give you a clue to the problem but you need to know which BIOS type you have...AMI, AWARD or Phoenix are the 3 most common.

Is it a constant beeping? any mix of short & long beeps or high/low tones?
