There are 4 types of expansion slots on this motherboard. The expansion slots on this motherboard are as follows.
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (blue) 1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, black) 1 x PCIe 2.0 x1 1 x PCI
What motherboard do you have? If you don't know, provice make and model of your system and maybe we can find out that way. Is it one long beep? Are there any other beeps and/or a sequence. A good place to start and alot of times, depending on your bios, 1 to 3 beeps means a problem with the RAM(memory). If you have more than 1 stick, you can pull them out, restart and if the beep is the same, you've probably found your culprit. You can then insert one at a time in one of your slots, then restart. If this works, you've found a good stick. If not, try another slot and restart, etc. Try all sticks in all slots.
Hi John. If you already swaped the Memory, it's the video card. I'm giving you what the beep means according to the different types of BIOS, because basically Ascent is a clone PC. I hope it helps. (you will have to open the computer to see the BIOS type.)
1 long beep and 2 shorts -- Video error
2 short beeps -- non-fatal error.
1 beep corto -- OK.
1 short beep -- Memory error. 2 short beeps -- ECC error.
3 short beeps -- Memory error.
4 short beeps -- change atery
5 beeps cortos -- bad processor.
6 beeps cortos -- bad keyboard.
7 beeps cortos -- video memory bad.
8 beeps cortos -- video bad.
1-1-2 beeps -- Problem with cpu/motherboard.
1-1-3 beeps -- Cmos issue.
3-4-1 beeps -- Video issue.
1 short beep -- Post normal, ok!.
2 short beeps -- POST error, will show on screen. NO beep -- CPU issue or Expansion card issue 1 long and 1 short -- motherboard error.
1 long and 2 shorts -- Video issue.
1 long and 3 shorts --EGA video issue.
3 longs -- Keyboard error.
AMI (American Megatrends International) BIOS Beep Codes. AMI BIOS uses beeps of the same length and pitch. The error is displayed as a number of beeps. For example, 4 beeps indicated a timer failure. BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 Beep (No video) Memory refresh failure Bad memory 2 Beeps Memory parity error Bad memory 3 Beeps Base 64K mem failure Bad memory 4 Beeps Timer not operational Bad motherboard 5 Beeps Processor error Bad processor 6 Beeps 8042 Gate A20 failure Bad CPU or Motherboard 7 Beeps Processor exception Bad processor 8 Beeps Video memory error Bad video card or memory 9 Beeps ROM checksum error Bad BIOS 10 Beeps CMOS checksum error Bad motherboard 11 Beeps Cache memory bad Bad CPU or motherboard
Award BIOS Beep Codes Award BIOS uses beeps of varying duration. A long beep will typically last for 2 seconds while a short beep will last only 1 second. Award BIOS also uses beeps of different frequency to indicate critical errors. If an Award BIOS detects that the CPU is overheating it may play a high pitched repeating beep while the computer is running. BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 Long, 2 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter Repeating (Endless loop) Memory error Bad memory or bad connection 1 Long, 3 Short Video adapter failure Bad video adapter or memory High freq. beeps (while running) CPU is overheating CPU fan failure Repeating High, Low beeps CPU failure Bad processor
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes Phoenix BIOS uses beep code patterns to indicate problems. In the table below the '-' indicates a brief pause between beeps. Example: 1 - 1 - 2 would sound like BEEP <pause> BEEP <pause> BEEP BEEP
BEEP CODE MEANING POSSIBLE CAUSE 1 - 1 - 2 CPU / motherboard failure Bad CPU / motherboard 1 - 1 - 3 CMOS read/write failure Bad motherboard 1 - 1 - 4 BIOS ROM failure Bad BIOS chip 1 - 2 - 1 Timer failure Bad motherboard 1 - 2 - 2 DMA failure Bad motherboard 1 - 2 - 3 DMA failure Bad motherboard 1 - 3 - 1 Memory refresh failure Bad memory 1 - 3 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 1 - 3 - 3 64K memory failure Bad memory 1 - 3 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 1 - 4 - 1 Address line failure Bad memory 1 - 4 - 2 Parity error Bad memory 1 - 4 - 3 Timer failure Bad motherboard 1 - 4 - 4 NMI port failure Bad motherboard 2 - 1 - 1 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 1 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 1 - 3 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 1 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 2 - 1 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 2 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 2 - 3 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 2 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 3 - 1 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 3 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 3 - 3 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 3 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 4 - 1 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 4 - 2 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 4 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 2 - 4 - 4 64K memory failure Bad memory 3 - 1 - 1 Slave DMA failure Bad motherboard 3 - 1 - 2 Master DMA failure Bad motherboard 3 - 1 - 3 Interrupt controller failure Bad motherboard 3 - 1 -4 Slave IC failure Bad motherboard 3 - 2 -2 Interrupt Controller failure Bad motherboard 3 - 2 - 3 <RESERVED> 3 - 2 - 4 Keyboard control failure Bad motherboard 3 - 3 - 1 CMOS batter failure Bad CMOS battery 3 - 3 - 2 CMOS configuration error Incorrect setting 3 - 3 - 3 <RESERVED> 3 - 3 - 4 Video memory failure Bad video card or memory 3 - 4 - 1 Video init failure Bad video card or memory 4 - 2 - 1 Timer failure Bad motherboard 4 - 2 - 2 CMOS shutdown failure Bad motherboard 4 - 2 - 3 Gate A20 failure Bad motherboard 4 - 2 - 4 Unexpected interrupt Bad processor 4 - 3 - 1 RAM test failure Bad memory 4 - 3 - 3 Timer failure Bad motherboard 4 - 3 - 4 RTC failure Bad motherboard 4 - 4 - 1 Serial port failure Bad motherboard 4 - 4 - 2 Parallel port failure Bad motherboard 4 - 4 - 3 Coprocessor failure Bad motherboard or CPU. 9 - 2 - 1 Video adapter incompatibility Use a different brand of video card
how many beeps any breaks between beeps and then how many like 3 beeps then stops for 1 sec then beep beep beep stop beep beep beep check to make sure that your installing your memory sticks right and they are seated all the way make sure all cards are seated right all wires are not shorting out and a worst case your cpu is good
You are going to need to lookup your BIOS version and manufacturer and find the Beep codes list. each BIOS has non beep codes and beep codes. the beep codes are bad. find out what this code means and do as they say if you dont know how to find what BIOS version your running Goole "What BIOS am i runninng?"
Once you have that like i said google it and its beep codes and if you cant find it ill help
You will need to pay close attention to how many beeps & if their short or long. Asus uses the Award BIOS. Beeps are a part of POST. Power On Self Test. Open the link below to find out what your beeps mean. http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
