I have removed the CPU cover  to clean it. After that whenever i boot my system  i hear a constant beep sound for atleast 2 seconds  at start of  booting  process from the CPU.  there is a display on the screen  such as
 
memory  runs at single channel.

Please give a precise description on what you meant by "I have removed the CPU cover  to clean it". Did you mean to say that you removed the PC side cover to clean it?

 

Most of us in the Forum are aware that there is a metal cover on the actual CPU that covers the core(s).

 

Some people even go as far as lapping the cover to increase contact with the cpu cooler for better cooling when beginning an extreme overclock.

 

From your description of your symptoms, it sounds as if you inadvertently unplugged something and did not fully reseat it.

Re: beep sound from CPU

Hi, check your BIOS settings, there is a reset option when you open the computer case.

Re: beep sound from CPU

In Hp compaq desktop, if we remove the side panel / side cover of the cabinate ie CUP cover, then the system makes a beeps sound for 2 sec and we have to press F1 to continue.

It can be stoped by entering into the BIOS settings.

Press <F10> then

BIOS setting -> Hardware Monitor Setup -> Reset case open status [Disable/Enable] Make it Enable.

Press F10 to save your BIOS settings and then hit Enter to exit from bios.

 

Restart computer again and you do not have to press F1 to start your computer and that beep sound will stop.
