    6 Short Beeps
    Six short beeps mean that there has been an 8042 Gate A20 test error.

    This beep code is usually caused by an expansion card that has failed or a motherboard that is no longer working.

    You might also be dealing with a certain kind of keyboard glitch if you hear 6 short beeps. When troubleshooting A20 errors, you may need to reseat or replace any expansion cards.

    Lastly, you might be dealing with a failure severe enough that you'll need to replace your motherboard.

    When you last used the pc, did it do a normal shutdown or did it quit by itself?

    Did you recently make ANY changes to the pc?
