Arctic power 500W 12V RAIL @ 18A
Nvidia Geforce 8600 512mb
AMD athlon 6000 X2
OCZ DDR2 800mhz memory 2x1gb, i use only 1 stick as default voltage is set at 1.8v when i require 2.2v.

Please help.

Make sure your RAM is pushed in fully, even if the tabs have clicked, it may not be fully in, especially if your ram is wide (heatsinks etc) test it with one stick till it works, then get the other working :)

Board running but no display


One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


hope this helps

My PC running a Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4 motherboard won't boot up - it emits a continuos series of beeps: a 1sec beep with a 10sec pause then keeps repeating & cannot even get into Bios setup


Check your CPU make sure its placed correctly and that you don't have too much contact grease,you only need a very small amount.
If that's not the problem try re-seating your ram and video card.
Other then that look at the power supply could be under powered!
hope this has helped

One long beep tone---NO Display on monitor(monitor checked ok)


Definitely not your monitor. It is either a CPU or a Memory problem, is this a new build or did an existing computer suddenly start doing this?

Is that your motherboard, the Gigabyte 7VM400M ?

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops


Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm#05 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to memtest.org Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike

Mainboard dead i need super help to prove wrong the people who blame it on me istead of agreeing..


I'd recommend using a known good power supply, a known good PC speaker, and a digital multimeter.

Search for the voltage regulators (usually have a small heatsink attached) and any voltage converters (usually close to some coils of wire wrapped around a ferrite "donut"). Look up their datasheets online, and check the voltages into and out of each of them. If the voltages are okay, listen for any beep codes when powering up. If that doesn't work, consider buying a "Post Card" - Power On Self Test Card. You plug it into the PCI or ISA sockets, and it will show you a numeric code to indicate how far the power up sequence has progressed. Retail for about $20 to $40 CDN.

GA-M57SLI-S4 wont power up !!! what to do !


Hi check the cables from the case to the mother board. They should be marked and the manual that came with the board ,this show you where to connect them on board The std markings are HDD [red led] PWR S [powerswitch] RSW [reset switch] PWR LED [case power light] in most cases check to see if this is correctly connected
To test if there is no fault in the board or power pack. first visualy check the board to see if it shows a red led light when the power is turned on, if not the problem is in the power pack or the wall outlet.
second if the light is on, bridge the pins marked pwr switch on the board with a screw driver and this should start the computer, check the processor and ram if not you have a faulty board.
