SOURCE: Abit AN7 motherboard does not boot - POST code AF

I think is a bios problem, a ram failiure would be C1 post code.If the bios is corrupted, try a blind bios update or if it doesn't want to, you must do a hot flash update.For more details google search for award bios hot flash.Or dump it and buy a new one.Usually when the post doesn't change at all or if it stops to 90 is a bios problem.I had a similar problem, mine hang at 90-after a complete check of uguru.In your case might also be the uguru chip.I hot flashed the bios.I used an abit nf7s 2.0 to start and then put in my bios.It worked and i also made a backup.Your chip is Winbond-4 mb capacity.

check your motherboard's owner manual. Try removing the processor/ram/video card to see if that will give you any clues.

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.

Abit as8 post codes 21

Hello here is the homepage:

Post code 21, is a memory/ chipset problem.

It could be a problem with a ram module, or a Pci sound card or a graphic card. or powersupply.

Try to remove any add in cards, and try to boot with only one stick of ram.

Good luck

My PC with an ABIT motherboard makes a cont beeps although my speakers are off. The beeps stops sometime and then start again. Do you have an idea what should I do. Regards Doron

the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?
hope this helps

My PC will no longer boot up and I am sure its the motherboard at fault. I get a beep every 2 or 3 seconds and there is a red warning light on board. What are these symptoms telling me?

That the memory is inaccessible - try to boot using another memory, if it's the same then the northbridge has failed = replace the motherboard.

The beeps might indicate the problem with RAM. Try plugging out the RAM modules and insert them back in one by one in different slots and then check.

Don't understand?

take the extra ram board out
when a system fails to boot properly, it indicates a problem hard drive (HDD)
cmos batteries just keep the program for the chip operational and nothing more )
take it in to a computer repair shop for a proper diagnosis
if it is the hard drive ( has all of the operating system , files and folders ) replace it with a solid state hard drive (SSHD) as it has no spinning disc to fail
