My PC (Medion Akoya P5315) keeps beeping when I turn it on. I've had this problem for a while, but 2 months ago it would start beeping when turning on, but when I would do it again, the PC would start up and start working perfectly fine. Looked on several forums and tried some solutions but none of them seem to help. The PC is around 4 years old, and one tip was to apply new thermal paste but my brother said that couldn't be it cause the pc wouldn't overheat that fast according to him. The heaviest things I did on the PC were probably playing Minecraft and GTA San Andreas. I've got no idea what to do. Please help.
Had a look. I went to the Intel website and it was indeed a memory problem. The solution was reseating the memory. I watched a video about it just to be sure and I discharged my static electricity. I reseated them, put the side panel back on and installed all the cables. Guess what? Beeping again, and this time in another pattern, this pattern isn't even on intel's site.
Tell us what the beep pattern is. We might be able to identify it.
And any other messages. noises, flashes or behavior.
You have to be our eyes and ears. It is not easy to diagnose computer problems remotely without all the information, whether you think it is significant or not. That wierd tick that has been there since the machine was new just might be a clue to someone.
