A constant beep indicates either a power supply, motherboard or keyboard problem.

If you know what you are doing then open up the case (turning off the power first of course and earth yourself by touching the case before anything inside it) and make sure all the connecters are seated properly and try a different keyboard if you have one.

My computer has a RAMDDR2 but would not start up,can u help me diagnose and troubleshoot?


First make sure you haven't installed too much memory. The computer uses DDR 2 memory but what is the maximum amount it can use. If it can only support 2mb and you have 4 installed the computer will read that as an error during boot up. Second, disconnect the Keyboard and as the computer is booting access the BIOS. disable the stop on all errors setting so it can get past not sensing the keyboard and see if that boots. If the computer boots after that the problem is a fault in your keyboard like a stuck key which will give you the constant beep. If you see the spalsh or BIOS screens then the problem is not the Video Card. If you don't get those screens double check and make sure the Video card is properly installed with nothing installed in a slot directly below it as this sometimes causes conflicts.

MSI K8N Neo V2.0 beep code problem is continous beeps.


That's usually a bad ram stick. Shut down the pc & remove one stick at a time starting with the one furthest from the cpu & work your way down to the first one. When it boots without the constant "beep", you found the bad one! You can also check www.msi.com & look in the support area for a solution if mine is wrong.(I'm never wrong though,lol)

It does not start, gives one long beep (about 2-3 seconds) silence and beep again


Switching DDR cards solved the problem. I was getting long beeps every 2 seconds. No short beeps. Just one long beep every 2 seconds. Thanks Josh Whitehead.
