No beeps Short, no power, bad CPU or motherboard, or the CPU is not installed properly.One long beep, then two short beepsVideo problemContinuous hi-lo beepsCPU overheatingRepeated long beepsMemory errorAll other beepsMemory related error
If you are getting hi lo beeps, refit CPU and heatsink
If continuous long beeps, check memory is seated correctly, if more than 1 stick, try each one on its own, 1 may be faulty, or incompatable
I still did not find beep code that match your problem..
Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too. 1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem. 2. 1beep - board is working fine. 3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing. 4. 1short beep - system boots normally 5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error. 6. 1long 1short beep - dram error 7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected 8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error. 9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error 10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected 11. Short beep - power supply error 12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.
Turn the computer off.
Hold DOWN the "any" key.
Turn the computer on.
When you see "keyboard error. Press Fxx to enter BIOS SETUP", RELEASE the "any" key, and press the 'Fxx' key.
While in setup, change the boot-order to "floppy-first".
Then, everytime that you boot, your motherboard will "grind" the 3.5-inch disk, looking for a boot-sector.
If it DOES "grind", then BIOS-loading has completed, and there's something wrong with the boot-sector on either the CD-ROM or the disk-drive, i.e., Windows "crashes" during startup, and reboots itself.
Or, press F8 when you think that your computer is booting from the disk-drive, to enter the "Windows boot menu". Try "Boot In Safe Mode".
The beep codes below may help you identify the possible computer problems. However, they are only for reference purposes. The situations might differ from case to case. gAMI BIOS Beep Codes *Computer gives 1 short beep when system boots successfully. *Except for beep code 8, these codes are always fatal. 1 beep Refresh failure 2 beeps Parity error 3 beeps Base 64K memory failure 4 beeps Timer not operational 5 beeps Processor error 6 beeps 8042 - gate A20 failure 7 beeps Processor exception interrupt error 8 beeps Display memory read/write failure 9 beeps ROM checksum error 10 beeps CMOS shutdown register read/write error 11 beeps Cache memory bad g AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error
I would suggest that you do a factory reset on your mobo. To do it, here are the steps you can follow.
1. make sure that computer is OFF and unplugged from the wall 2. locate the 3-pin jumper on the mobo that is near the cmos battery 3. once located, remove the cmos battery 4. then from the 3-pin jumper, if the jumper is connected to pins 1-2, switch it over to pins 2-3 5. return the cmos battery back 6. plug the computer back then turn it ON 7. you will probably get an option to reset or restore settings back to factory, it that's the case, continue with it 8. after doing so, turn the computer OFF again and unplug it 9 remove cmos battery then return the jumper to it's original position 10. put in the battery back then turn the computer on again 11. go to the bios and set it back to the setting that you have set it before 12. check and see if problem has been resolved
* I would suggest getting a new cmos battery if it's already old
That is probably your ram. If you have more then 1 stick remove them and install one at a time in slot 1. If that isn't it you need to count the beep and duration of the beeps. I can then look up the codes. I will also need to know your bios manufacture.
2 beeps is memory issues. Either your RAM is bad or the Video card is bad. If you are getting the BSOD, blue screen of death, then I would take out all your RAM and start it up with a single stick, so you can find out what stick is bad. If you only have 1 stick, replace it. I say to do the memory first, because it is the cheaper fix.
if you don't here ok beep or any error beep:
First check out speaker is connected properly to motherboard.
Remove all component from motherboard like HDD,FDD, RAM etc..
Just put only processor to your board and power-up
There must be a long beep for missing RAM, if not means you have problem in Motherboard or CPU. Try out another board and another CPU to find out which one is faulty.
If you got missing RAM beep, then power-off and add RAM. Then power-up there must be ok beep (only one beep) or missing RAM beep. If missing RAM beep, then your RAM might be faulty try to clean the connection point with pencil earaser and try out again. If no success then try with another RAM.
I think this will help you. Please post your feed-back. Or ask me if any question.....
The beeps you hear are probably BIOS error beep codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the BIOS communicates what type of error is occurring during the initial stages of the start up process. If you can tell me the manufacturer and model number of the board AND the sequence and length of the beeps I can point you in the direction to go.
