Sounds like not enough power. have another look at the board, the 4 pin connector should be near the I/O shield near the top of the board, just above or beside the CPU. sometimes it is on the edge of the motherboard (so the plug pins are parallel with the board surface)

SOURCE: pc is not booting and no display in monitor

First, try resetting the CMOS. If it is not working, replace the RAM. Could be a damaged RAM

SOURCE: my computer does'nt boot

One long and 3 shorts beep on Asus Motherboard is video error, either the video adapter is malfunctioning, or the video card is not well plugged int its PCI or AVG slot.

If video adapter is built in motherboard you need to buy an external video adapter, or to replace the motherboard.

If video card is an external one, must be taken aout and placed back to test it, if it is faulty replace it.

SOURCE: My pc doesn't boot anymore.

This code usually refers to a Video card or RAM issue. Try reseating both the video card and then RAM to see if it fixes the problem. If not then try removing the video card and rebooting. If the system starts without the beeps then you'll know the video card is bad and you can replace it. If it still beeps then try removing the RAM one stick at a time, rebooting after each removal. When it boots you'll have the bad RAM stick isolated and can replace. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: beep

have you recently fitted new hard ware to *********** board if so remove it and replace with old one.
especially video card and memory
What the beeps mean is that something is not correct on the board
and is telling you before further trouble

Computer won't start, solid amber light, no fans, no keyboard, nothing. There is power to monitor and modem. What's wrong and how can I fix it?


That my Friend is the Yellow Light of Death, anyway turn on Your PC, as it starts You will here some beeps especially on a Dells. Count the beeps , there will be a slight pause so it will beep once then pause then beep again. Count the beeps and that will be Your code. Go to Dell Support site and look up code. Most of the time a Yellow amber light means that there is trouble with Your Motherboard but thats not to say its the Motherboard itself, during a power outage with no surge protected, it could have possibly burned out Your RAM, Processor, Heat fan, even the power supply itself. So look up the code and at least You'll have a better chance of finding the solution, Good Luck

Remove the 1 gig chip. Pull you battery out and unplug the laptop. Hold the power button in for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug the laptop back in again and try booting it up. This should reset the BIOS and allow it to boot. The beep codes you are talking about are a memory beep code and it is normally caused by adding memory or a loose memory stick. Also try pulling the existing memory and resetting it.

Booting up


one light is for hardrive activity , the other is to show the power is on.. the flashing one is most likely the power light as most computers will tell you when thier ill....the beeping is an error code and should be in some pattern EG: Power LED blinks red twice, once a second, followed by a two second pause. Or something like that. Take note of the pattern and repost it here, then we can give you a specific area to look at.
