I have scoured the web for an answer to an issue which has only recently started happening (after plugging in a new USB Hub - since removed). When i boot the machine, i get a single, short beep during (or just before) the POST, somthing i thought wierd. I have looked on the Lenovo HMM and seen on Page 61 that it details two error codes, however no mention of a signle beep, so i started looking elsewhere and have found discussions on the forum relating to other been codes, but not a single beep! The only reference to a signle beep i have been able to locate on a Lenovo site is here (which relates to a different product series) indicating a "normal boot", this fits because after the beep, the machine boots into Win 7 fine.
I have recently reset, and deactivated the MEBX as the password was forgotten, i have also reset the BIOS to defaults, and updated it to be on the safe side, still i get the beep. I have also unplugged everything (inc. power), pressed and held the power button for c. 60-70 seconds, again to no avail.
I am hoping i have covered off the basic troubleshooting, and included enough information to help other suggest a solution, apologies if not, but this is the first time posting for support on a forum!
Thanks in advance
