many times if the fan over the cpu chip on the motherboard fails to run or blow, an beeping alarm will begin and PC will not start. the cpu has to be kept cool so if fan fails the startup is stopped. have found lose wire connections from fan to motherboard terminal, or power supply may be blown, try checking those first. if nothing lose then wiggle those wires to see if the fan starts.
If you have a Gigabyte MoBo then the CPU fan has stopped running.
Open the casing side cover and see if the CPU cooling fan is running or not.
If it does not run, the go into BIOS and disable "HDD S.M.A.R.T. Capability" in Advanced Bios Features
also set "CPU smart fan control" to disable in PC Health Status
This may be a power supply problem.
The voltages of the power supply are going out of limits.
change the power supply and see.
first remove the cover of your computer after switching off the system and removing the power plug the power the system and see whether the processor fan is working if not power off the system and remove the 24 pin connector from the smps to the motherboard and short the green and black pin of the conector from the smps and see the smps fan is working if not replace the smps if working then remove the memory from the slot and clean them or change the memory to which match the dimm slot an connect the connector and switch on the computer
Here is a listing. From what I read, it seems to me the problem is in the CPU and that it is overheating. This can be caused by a multitude of issues but first ensure the CPU fan is running. Second, if you applied too much siver heat sink, this can cause overheating as well. Make sure you only have a thin layer between the CPU and the heatsink. Hope this helps.
Whenever you hear a system beep it means the system is hung due to a hardware error. How many beeps does it make? The number off beeps can help you dtermine what the issue may be. It could be a video card failure, cpu failure, ram failure, or even a power supply issue. The beeps aren't very specific but they can give you a starting point. Given that it is such a generic error code I would suggest taking the PC to a repair center. I wish I could be of more assistance. If you have any further questions please feel free to reply in this thread.
Quick question, did you upgrade any components prior to the error beeps?
On power "OFF", check your video card and memory cards by re-inserting it into the slot. Be careful though if you haven't done this before. Also check if the CPU fan is working well. It might also be an overheating cpu problem.
The POST (power on self test) is failing which is why the pc is beeping. As stated by knotbeerdan, I would need to know how many beeps. Most of the time it's either something laying on the keyboard pushing doewn on the jeys, the keyboard is unplugged, or it could be completely different. I would say the reason it's restarting itself is the power supply is going bad. Typically that's the issue when they restart, though at times it could be something else causing it.
