Beeping on Power Up

HP Recommended
23-Q251 Pavilion All in One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

On power up my computer goes into a 5 time series of beeps. 3 long followed by 4 short beeps. after the series of 5 the computer powers up. I have tried removing any outside pluged in device (keyboard and external hard drive) but it doesn't make any difference.

Any ideas out there?

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


This HP Support site (Link) lists BIOS error codes and possible remedies. Your PC is about two years old.


Scroll down in the first group of BIOS error codes to see the 3:4 cadence error. This error code is a hardware driven (possible PSU, motherboard, or memory) problem.
