That does sound like a memory issue. remove the memory and reinstall it to make sure it is seated properly.

Alarm beeps and orange light flashes when power is switched on.


If you unplug the power cord from the wall and the PSU, then flick the little red voltage switch on the back up and then back down again, plug it back in and it should work again

When I turn on my computer it does nothing but make a buzzing alarm sound about every 5 seconds. It doesn't go to the start up screen or anything.


Hi,
The buzzing alarm is a beep code which indicates a hardware problem.
Try removing the system memory and clean the brass contacts and the slots it goes into, then reseat the memory and try to boot again, the memory looks like this >>>>>>>

What you need is a soft, clean, dry paintbrush.
Remove the powercord from the back of the PC.
Start by removing the ram and clean the contacts with the brush, then clean the brass contacts, reset the memory and the powercord and try booting the computer.
If it still won't boot count the beeps and how long they are and post back here.


Regards.

Alarm goes off when it starts up


The alarm is a BIOS alarm. It is warning you of either a cooling fan failure or the processor getting too hot. Either way, you need to fix the problem, not just ignore it!

I would check that all the fans are running correctly and would also recommend that you give the insides of your computer case a clean out - you'll be amazed at how much dust can build up in there! This may well cure the problem.

If it is a processor temperature alarm, rather than turning it off, you may want to adjust it so it doesn't sound until a higher temp. is reached. You can adjust this from the BIOS screen, but I would check the maximum temp. that your processor is designed to run at before doing so.

To get to the BIOS screen to turn it off, press the delete key (repeatedly) while the machine is booting.

I can't tell you exactly when to find it in the BIOS, as this can vary from one computer to the next. Just navigate you way around until you find the relevant section.

**** WARNING ****

Changing settings in the BIOS can affect the computers performance, prevent it from starting, or even cause permanent damage to hardware. Unless you know exactly what you're doing, I wouldn't recommend changing things!

Hope this helps,

Matt

Chassis itruded problem


1. Try clearing the bios manually by shorting the jumpers (i think u what i mean).
2. Try recovery of the bios memory (if it supports)
3. Try reflashing the bios (get the latest bios updates from net)
4. disconnect the intrusion alarm device/switch
5. press F1 and continue to windows -> use the board vendor supplied tools to access the intrusion alarm log and clear it

:)

bye

have a nice day
