It is important to list the model # of the computer. Different beeps codes mean various problems.

example of codes:http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=bph07107

 

Hope this helps. BTW, the beeps are from a ultra-mini (piezo) speaker on the motherboard.

Hi,

 

If you replaced the "power brick" then be sure that it is rated for the wattge, voltage and amperage that is required by your Touchsmart 320.

 

The HP "power brick" is rated at 19v, 150 watts and rated for 7.5 amps.
