Ram beeps codes encountered but ram not issue

I have 4 sticks of 1gb ram I was getting the ram error beep code I believe it was 1 long beep. I took all but one ram stick out and it went away then added another and it was still fine but when I added the 3rd or 4thit came back. Then last week none of the ram stick work, I called Gigabyte and they said it was the processor so I bought a new one and replaced it and i still get the ram error beep codes. Please help

It might be a bios problem but you might have the wrong ram modules so tell me first what ram does the mobo use and also what ram did you buy.

What do the beeps codes i am getting mean? 1 short followed by 1 long.


Beep codes don't cause or signify damage, they are just telling you something is wrong. In your case, I would say the RAM is incorrectly seated or in the wrong slots.

2 beeps Memory (RAM) not detected

Remove the RAM and press it HARD until it locks in place. Do a visual check that the indent is against the mounting.

N1996 motherboard 4 fast bios beeps


The beeps actually refer to memory not just RAM, it could be the memory on your graphics card or the cache ram on your processor. Or it could be a compatibility issue between memory sticks.

Can not reinstall os on mt acer 246lc it bleeps 4 times and swithes off


Without knowing what motherboard is in the unit - it will be difficult to determine what the 4 beeps means.

Generally, 4 beeps means issues with :

- memory
- video card
- keyboard
- motherboard failure

Things to try -

- make sure there is no keys stuck down
- remove the battery and AC adapter, remove and re-install the memory sticks (reseating the memory)

If this does not work, your problem may be more serious. Let us know the results of the above suggestions.

One Short beep and two long beep


The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes. Sort of like a Morse code, if you know what that is. Every computer has it's own BIOS program, and version of that program. Each BIOS has it's own Beep Codes.

Taking a guess, as I don't know what BIOS program or version you have, it sounds like a ram memory issue.
Suggest you,

1.Unplug the computer

2.Open the computer case

3.TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve you body of Static electricity. Static will silently fry out your delicate computer hardware components. You won't see it or feel it.

4.Remove the ram stick/s. Reinstall the ram stick/s. (Stick/s means one ram stick, or two, three, or four ram sticks)

You may have just had a loose ram stick.

Problems with Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard memory upgrade


This is an oldtime POST code memory error. Likely that ram is either installed wrong, bad RAM or the mobo doesn't like one of the memory sticks.

See http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm.

You must count the beeps.
