How To Troubleshoot Computer Beep Codes

Is your PC making a beeping sound when it starts…and then doesn’t begin? No, you’re not insane, your PC truly is blaring, and the sound might be coming from inside your PC, not your speakers. 

These beeps are called signal codes and are utilized by the BIOS (the product that runs your PC equipment) during the POST (an underlying test to ensure your PC is OK to begin) to report certain underlying framework mistakes. 

In case you’re hearing beep codes after you turn your PC on, it ordinarily implies that the motherboard has experienced some sort of issue before it had the option to send any sort of mistake data to the screen. The signaling, then, at that point, is an approach to impart an issue to you when the PC can’t show an appropriate mistake on the screen.

Follow the means underneath to resolve the computer?s beeping sounds. When you know what’s going on, you can attempt to fix the issue.

How to Troubleshoot Beep Sound

Sorting out why your PC is making signaling sounds should just take 10 to 15 minutes. Tackling the issue that you recognize is another errand totally and could require a couple of moments to hours, contingent upon what the issue winds up being. 

  1. Force on the PC, or restart it in case it’s now on. 
  1. Listen cautiously to the signal codes that sound when the PC starts for sure. Restart your PC on the off chance that you need to hear the blaring once more. You’re presumably not going to aggravate whatever issue by restarting a couple of times. 
  1. Record, in the manner in which sounds good to you, how the beeps sound. Indeed, this may generally appear to be somewhat insane, however, this is significant data that will assist with figuring out what issue the beep codes are addressing. If you fail to understand the situation, you’ll be attempting to tackle an issue your PC doesn’t have and disregarding the genuine one. 
  1. Then, you’ll need to sort out what organization fabricated the BIOS chip that is on your PC motherboard. Lamentably, the PC business never concurred on a uniform method to speak with signals, so get this right. 

The most effortless approach to figure this is out is by introducing one of these free framework data devices, which should advise you if your BIOS is made by AMI, Award, Phoenix, or another organization. If that doesn’t work, you could open your PC and take a look at the genuine BIOS chip on your PC motherboard, which ought to have the organization name imprinted on or close to it. 

  1. Since you know the BIOS producer, pick the investigating guide underneath dependent on that data: 
  • AMI Beep Code Troubleshooting (AMI BIOS) 
  • Grant Beep Code Troubleshooting (AwardBIOS) 
  • Phoenix Beep Code Troubleshooting (PhoenixBIOS) 
  1. Utilizing the signal code data explicit to those BIOS creators in those articles, you’ll have the option to sort out precisely what’s up that is causing the blaring, be it a RAM issue, a video card issue, or some other equipment issue.


A few PCs, even though they might have BIOS firmware made by a specific organization, as AMI or Award, further alter their beep-to-issue language, making this interaction somewhat disappointing. If you figure this may be the situation, or just stressed it very well may be, pretty much every PC producer distributes their signal code list in their client guides, which you can most likely discover on the web.
