Question about Intel Motherboard
Giving a continuos short beep sound with 6second intervals
ram is ok
Please check within BiosCentral's web site, click on this link:
More bios beep codes for different Bios’s at the right side of the link.
Testing RAM in another system does not mean your current memory slots are good. Check for dust or possible slightly bent connectors within the memory slot. Use a couple drops of alcohol onto a cotton swab. Clean the memory slots contacts & the copper contacts on each dimm. Blow slots out with canned air. Allow time to dry. (If you are using a internal graphics card, remove it & clean its contacts with alcohol as well & reseat). (Please do not use an eraser from a pencil)!
Check the memory QVL list, (Qualified Vender List). See if your memory has been tested to function on your board. (OVL list is in the manual).
Check CPU fan. (Is it running)?
The average fan runs between 2000rpm & 3000rpm. This is something you can see if its running too slow.
Lastly, make sure your power supply fan or fans are running, hold your hand behind the PSU vent. Check the air, if it feels too warm blow out the PSU with a blast of air.
I have come across too many systems where the bios beep suggest there's an issue with memory & instead the trouble was the add-on graphics card or onboard graphics card.
