Startup Repair Offline: Unable to fix problem and beep codes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have an issue with my PC startup and boot,

    My PC Model: Lenovo H330, Windows 7, i5 Intel processor.

    Basically on the first attempt at booting, my pc plays a beep code which sounds like = 'beep-beep' + 'beep-beep-beep' followed by a blank screen, on a second attempt the pc boots fine.

    I believe this is 1 long and 3 short, the code does not seem to be in the Lenovo Bios support guide to beep codes, not only this but when I attempt Startup Repair in order to fix the problem it states it has failed to fix the problem, details below:

    Problem Event Name: Startup repair offline

    PS1: 6.1.7600.16385

    PS2: 6.1.7600.16385

    PS3: unknown

    PS4: 268

    PS5: Autofailure

    PS6: 1

    PS7 No Root Cause

    Local ID: 1033

    Further Information:

    - Information on the failure to repair states error code 0x490

    - Before the issue started, AVG Free Antivirus 2015 lost active components and I was unable to update or turn components back on; at the same time it proved to be very difficult to uninstall.

    Really need help with this thanks!

    Your first step is to find out from Lenovo what the 3-2 beeps mean and go from there.  You also need to update to SP-1 ASAP.

  • Hi Eli,

    I agree with ZigZag ,you may need to resolve the beeps code first .The machine may suffer a hardware issue .

    For the error code 0x490:
    Here is a link for reference of reference :
    Windows 7 Startup Problem - Error code 0x490

    First of all ,follow Parvesh_s`s answer ,check the BIOS settings .We may need to reset the BIOS settings to have a check.
    If the issue persists ,take the KrisM771`s method to repair with an installation media.

    If the auto repair will not work ,take the alebcay`s suggestion .Repair it with the command .

    Best regards
