Was it updating BIOS?

This is what Lenovo shows for two beeps.
Quote:
parity error, the first 64KB memory chip encounters parity failure. In CMOS settings, set memory ECC check to "DISABLED" and the problem is resolved. However, it is better to replace the memory

That is all Lenovo shows for the two beep error code.

You can try to reset the CMOS memory (BIOS) and see if that helps. However with an all in one, which is like a laptop, the CMOS backup battery (CR2032) is probably not easily accessible. The back would probably have to be removed to access the battery. If you are able to access the battery, with the PC power disconnected (off), remove the battery for 10 minutes. Reinstall and see if it works or at least able to access the BIOS.

Another possibility, if there is more than one memory module installed, remove the first module and see if works.

Otherwise, it will have to be taken to a qualified repair technician.

3 short and 1 long beeps = DRAM memory error

With the PC power cable disconnected (off), remove the memory modules and gently clean the contacts with alcohol and a clean cloth. Don't use paper. Let it dry well. Insert the modules back. See if it works.

If it doesn't, try one module at a time. They must be removed or inserted with the power cable disconnected .
