3 Long, 3 Short Beeps repeated 5 times during Boot-Up

Pavilion 560
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I replaced the Graphics card in the PC and now everytime I boot up the PC, I hear  3 Long, then 3 Short Beeps repeated 5 times.  Afterwards, Windows 10 boots up normally.  Any idea how to get rid of this beeping?  I'm unable to get into any BIOS option or Diagnostic menu (F2 or F12).

Hi,

 

Please post the HP product number for your PC. How to Find the HP Model Number and the HP Product Number or let HP automatically find your PC model number and HP network attached printers. This will allow others to review your issue, make suggestions and review your responses. This is usually the best way to get assistance.

 

What make and model graphics card are you trying to use?

 

Be sure that your graphics card is rated by the graphics card manufacturer to work with the original 300 watt power supply.

 

Remove the new graphics card and use a built-in motherboard video port. If your PC  boots up normally then review the below information.

Issue resolved.  It was related to the "secure boot" option.  I have a Radeon 7700 graphics card.  After disabling secure boot and switching to legacy option, no beeps are heard during boot up.  Is there a way to make secure boot compatible with my Radeon 7700 graphics card?

Hi,

 

Check with the manufcturer of the graphics card and see if there is a vBIOS update.  Frankly I doubt it.

Hey I’m having the same problem, however, from what I understand is that to disable secure boot you would need to get into Bios, but to get in Bios you would need to disable secure boot. So how did you get into bios ?

Thanks a lot
