    I have a gateway notebook and I use dial up connection when at home. why does my notebook shut down after a few beeps only when I’m online?

    I was messing in the BIOS one day, and I must have changed something that I should not have. I pressed F10 to save the changes that I had made. And when the computer restarted the screen went blank, and then there was this long continuous beep. I quicky restarted it, and again it made this long beep. on the third time it did nothing. so I did all sorts off things, removed the memory clean it. then used so differnt memory to see if it was the memory causing the problem. I allso removed the graphics card, to see if it would start up on the onboard graphics. And then removed the CMOS battery to try to wipe the stupid thing I did. The computer working fine now with anything back in place, I just want to know what went wrong with it so I can avoided doing this again.


    p.s I ungraded my memory on the same day that happend, from 512 to 768mb if that helps.

    k so i have a computer and when there is no disc drive it works fine, but when i plug it in it gives me a beep code that is unheard of, it is 2 long and 3 short and it doesnt make any sence

  4. Shane Fowler says:

    Lonnie, I believe your drive may be connected backwards.

    Please note. If you get beep code errors after installing random access memory you are either using the wrong type, combination, or speed.
