Depending on the age of the PC and the BIOS vendor...

But there is no obvious match for a NINE set of Beeps.

The embedded controller has timed out waiting for BIOS to return from Main-Board initialization.

 

Main-Board isn’t initialising quickly enough for component.

1 Verify the correct power supply being used.

2 Reset CMOS.

3 Reseat components,

4 Test known good components.

5 Replace defective parts found.

Hi, @Mj232 

 

Please see the troubleshooting guide at the link below, appendix A, page 59, for how to troubleshoot the 9 beep code.

Hopefully it is something simple like step 1 or 2.

 

If not, it is probably time for a new PC.
