Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an Asus p4s533-mx motherboard which boots and runs fine (sometimes). But when I perform a warm boot, it often won't pass POST. The beep code is one long and two short. If I power it down and let it sit for awhile, it will start up OK, but it enters SETUP. I exit SETUP with no changes and it starts OK.

The response from ASUS tech support - It's a standard Award BIOS, so they're the standard beep codes.

So I wrote the following on page 3-4 of my user guide:

1 long + 2 short = Video adaptor error
1 long + 3 short = No video card or bad video RAM

high freq beeps while running = Overheated cpu

repeating high/low = cpu problem

repeating (endless loop) = memory error

Pc keeps turning on and off


There's a lot of reason why the computer keeps turning on and off. The following are the common factors -

1. Driver Issue - common symptom is BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) before shutdown. Get the error code that usually starts in 0x12345abc. Unplug any newly installed hardware or any usb device then check. If unsuccessful, boot to safe mode and if computer behaves normally then isolate the problem by performing a clean boot.

Start your computer in safe mode Microsoft Windows Help

2. Defective internal components such as motherboard, memory module, video card.
- Simplest way to check for motherboard issue is check the computer time. If it keeps on changing then probably a busted battery that needs to be replaced in the motherboard. If not, have it serviced by a local tech or reputable computer shop.

- Perform memory test that is built-in to the motherboard. If the memory is defective, either clean it using a pencil eraser or have it serviced.

- Listen for "beep sounds" before startup. This should give you an idea of what the problem is.
Computer POST and beep codes


3. Insufficient Power / Overheating.
- check the voltage of your power supply and if it is still sufficient enough to supply the motherboard. Check the temperature, if the fan speed is sufficient to cool down the processor. Download the software to check everything.

CPU CPUID System hardware benchmark monitoring reporting

4. Due to Viruses/Malwares
- perform the abort shutdown command to prevent the computer from turning off. go to start - run - type shutdown -i

5. If you are not comfortable doing all this, go to the nearest computer shop. Hope this helps.

No boot - short beep, long beep (it is not a memory problem)


When your computer boots up, the Basic Input-Output System (BIOS) performs an all-systems Power On Self-Test (POST).
The POST tests your computer's most important components, including the motherboard itself, the system's memory and the video card.
If the computer deviates from its standard beep, it may indicate a very serious problem with your computer, or it may simply indicate that you need to replace a system fan or a memory stick. BIOS beep codes vary according to manufacturer.

Start your computer.
Pay attention to the number of beeps and the length of the beeps.
There are short and long beeps.
Write down your observations.
Write down the BIOS type if this information is on your screen.
Consult your computer documentation if you don't know what type of motherboard you have.
Visit your computer manufacturer's support website for your computer model if you purchased a pre-built machine.


Look up your BIOS manufacturer (AMI, Award and Phoenix, for example) at a BIOS beep code website such as 5StarSupport, PC Hell or PC Guide (see Below).
Match the your computer's beep code with the beep code listing for your BIOS manufacturer.

That post code can be either a memory or video or motherboard failure depending on the year and bios version. Generally means replacing something and probably not cost effective compared to finding a new or used replacement.

Power on emachine T6420 and moniter is blank. The moniter soon loses contact with the computer. The fan run and power is OK there is no beep code.


If you mean after the computer performs the self test the screen goes blank and stays blank, eventually turning off you are having a hard drive problem. When the computer boots you should see an E-Machines logo and/or a self test on the screen. That is done by the motherboard as part of every boot up. After that the motherboard passes control to your boot device and loads your operating system. If your computer stops booting at that point, your boot device is not working properly. That could be caused by many things - virus, hardware failure, power outage. If you really mean you see nothing at all on the screen when you press the power button your computer simply is not working at all. Open the case, blow all the dust out of it and reseat all components you can, then try again.

I'm not exactly sure what you are explaining but to disable in Windows go to: My computer: Properties: Hardware: Device Mgr: Graphics Card and for the one listed that is not your AGP card click: Disable This Device. It's just that simple. Also, in some BIOS,maybe all, there is an AGP: enable/disable box. This of course should be enabled.

Emachines wont boot


Bad capacitor(s) on the motherboard can cause this problem, corrupted BIOS maybe... try flashing BIOS.
Probably the CPU if your not getting any error code beeps on startup.. NO Processor for the BIOS instructions thus no Beeps !

Asus P4S800-MX Motherboard video problem


The system speaker is usually a set of four pins and you use the outside pair to connect the speaker. You may need to go to the Asus web site to download the manual if you don't have it. Try to reset the bios either by shorting the appropriate pins or by removing the battery for a while.
