Bleeping lap top

  Amer 10:44 26 Aug 2009

Hi I have a Compaq nc6400 lap top running on Windows XP. I have noticed that on the slightest movement it emits a double series of three short bleeps. Does anyone know what this might be?

Many thanks in advance

No idea how you move the laptop.

Could be the power management if really the slightest movement when you hand touch the laptop.

Or the part connection is not good that cause the beep codes.

Try check the whole laptop for the hardware connection or contact problem.

Hope this helps!

You might have a Ram or loose Ram connection.

This sounds helpful, I have had another problem recently that when I shut the screen on the lap top, it occassionally powers down completely which is not what I have set the defaults to do, so your suggestion of loose cables sounds like it may be connected to this issue.

Thank you so much
