P4VM890 - 3 long beeps


1) Son follow Anti-Static Procedures?

3) AMI BIOS 2.3.1

BIOS Beep Code - 3 Beeps
Indicates Ram Memory failure.

Cracked motherboard at ram memory slots, due to too much pressure being applied to motherboard, while in computer case?

Cracked motherboard at ram memory slots due to, user inadvertently had ram memory turned around backwards; and tried to install?
(Locating Notch was not lined up with Locating Lug, in ram memory slot)

4) We all get in a hurry sometimes, and make mistakes.
(Seen those commercials? Ha!)

Is there a 'stick' of ram memory in Slot 1? (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

5) I gotta' tell ya, Fred; I think we are dealing with a Static shock issue here, or cracked motherboard.

Was working, then ram memory removed/reinstalled; and now Not working.

For additional questions please post back in a Comment.

No video on asrock p4i45G motherboards


Hello the homepage is here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/P4i65G/?cat=Manual

3 short beeps: base 64 k ram failure.

If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Read more here:

Beep codes:

The fault could also be: power supply, or bad capacitors on the mainboard.

Good luck

Hi, just swaped out a harddrive now my Mainboard *4 core Duel Sata2* does a single beep, pause then rapid beeps. can you help


Please count the number of rapid beeps. 3 short beeps is a memory error. 8 short beeps is a display memory error. 9 short beeps is a ROM Bios checksum error and 10 beeps is a CMOS shut down read/write error.

The solution will depend on the error. For a memory error, remove all of the memory sticks then reinsert each one separately and reboot the computer. If the board continues to beep 3 times, that stick is bad or the memory slot has failed.

The complete beep code list is provided here: http://www.asrock.com/support/qa/TSDQA-01.pdf .

I hope this helps.

My motherboard gives 8 beeps and shows no video, I tested with several video cards and gives the same result. when the computer beeps (normal as it recognizes that although the bios), then emits...


Continious beep codes are caused by the memory (RAM). Try reseating your RAM just plug it out clean it then put it back in. Or try the other memory slots. Just transfer your memory to the other slot if you have an available slot on your motherboard. Or simply buy a new memory (RAM). Just make sure it is compatible to your motherboard. Beep codes means the computer is not reading the memory (RAM) properly. There is no post and no video in your computer because the RAM is not working properly.

At start the computer - 2x beep - what is that ?


Here is a good link I found on the web. You can click on link below.
Also I found Beep Code with descriptions. If you find this helpful, please rate me.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power-on_self-test

I think a few OEM's have developed their own or use Phoenix or AMI beep codes, but for the most part motherboard manufacturers uses the IBM based ones because they are grandfathered in. Beep Code: Description of Problem: No Beeps Short, No power, Bad CPU/MB, Loose Peripherals One Beep Everything is normal and Computer POSTed fine Two Beeps POST/CMOS Error One Long Beep, One Short Beep Motherboard Problem One Long Beep, Two Short Beeps Video Problem One Long Beep, Three Short Beeps Video Problem Three Long Beeps Keyboard Error Repeated Long Beeps Memory Error Continuous Hi-Lo Beeps----------------------------CPU OVERHEATING

On the forum link below says Ram. Read on.

The meaning of beeps at boot depends on the BIOS that is installed. This will give you an idea, but my guess is you have a RAM problem. Try checking that it's properly seated, otherwise you could run a program like Memtest to confirm the problem. Pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck.

Beebing tree times


Louise -

Although the memory may be working okay in another system, the three beeps at post still indicates a memory(RAM) problem. Your motherboard uses AMI BIOS, as indicated by the product specifications on the Asrock website; In the post-error code listing, three beeps is a memory issue.

Check and make sure you have compatible memory for the motherboard; and if possible, test with new or alternate memory sticks.

If new memory doesn't resolve the issue, I would say the RAM slot(s) is damaged, which would require totally replacing the motherboard.

Hope this helps!
