Y480 continous beep beep beep during startup

Hi,

 

I have been using the Y480 for almost 2 years. However, when I boot up this morning, it just beep beep beep continously. and the screen just have a cursor blinking.

 

But after I reboot again and press F2 to enter bios, and then quit bios settings, the notebook can be boot up successfully.

 

I have backup everything I need

 

What should I do to fix the error? Is my harddisk gonna be failed?

 

I have lost all the purchase receipts but I have registered 2 years ago.

 

Thanks!

Peter

Re: Y480 continous beep beep beep during startup

Beeps are error messages from the Motherboard. Either the MOBO is failing or you have a problem with your RAM, I dont think it is related to your HDD, but you should create a backup.

 

Also, if you don't have, please create recovery disks immediately.

 

You may want to do more research depending on the BIOS manufacturer and the beep codes. You can google these terms and you should find information on the procedure to validate this.

 

You can also try to re-seat the RAM, maybe it got a bit unsettled, if you moved the laptop.

 

All in all, if you took the externded warranty and you are still under it, you may want to send the laptop to Lenovo for repairs.
