Continuous Beep = No Power, Loose Card, or Short.make sure all the cards are inserted correctly and also check your memory, make sure it is in the dimm slots properly

Sc 5100 beeps on startup


These are EACH... DIFFERENT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION ERRORS at boot
Check that you have not changed any hardware/added any hardware and that these changes were/or have not TAKEN EFFECT yet
Power down system.... use CMOS RESET pin config jumper to reset your boot configuration(s) changes
Multi-"BEEP" error messages are usually connected to RAM CONFIGS. and I would suggest uninstalling ram chips..... but ONLY AFTER FULL SYSTEM "power drainage"!!!... i.e. pulling power plug from your PSU, removing system battery or unplugging it's terminal wiring mobo connector, and pressing the POWER BUTTON on your system

The beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the RAM , all the memory in the RAM is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off. WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules Make sure that your RAM modules and Cmos battery are securely seated on some motherboards Cmos batteries are soldered in. Test all power and data leads that attach from Motherboard to your Hard Drive IDE SATA Make sure they have a secure dust free connections if its a flat 40 pin ide it will be the first to fail Check the graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust reinstall it.

Click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll through devices if you see a yellow Question / Exclamation ? ! or a Red X a new driver will need to be installed / updated.

Motherboard for compaq pcsr5109uk have upgraded to 1,5 GB this adding a 1 GB ram since doing this pc will not boot up,pc has said that the mother board has died this has only started since new ram have...


From what you have stated, the original ram memory was two sticks of 512MB.
It's PC2-5300
(DDR2 Sdram at 667MegaHertz)

When installing ram memory, and installing two sticks with one stick being larger, the larger stick of ram memory is installed in Slot 1.

This is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
(The Processor reads Slot 1 first)
On the motherboard it has DIMM 1 printed next to Slot 1.

The 1GB stick should go into Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and the 512MB stick should go into Slot 2 (DIMM 2)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077654&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3457899

Scroll down for the motherboard illustration, and photo.

Won't boot up with the original ram memory installed again?
1) What type, and size of 1GB ram memory did you install?

2) What ram memory slot did you install it in?

3) Did you follow anti-static precautions BEFORE you put your hands inside your computer, and BEFORE you took that ram memory stick out of it's protective anti-static bag?

[Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.
Poof!
No computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static.

{A couch, bed, or directly on a carpet floor are HIGH areas of Static]

Before you answer my questions try this;

If the two sticks of 512MB PC2-5300 are still installed, follow anti-static precautions, and remove them.

Take a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of each ram module. (Stick)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

(The above example is DDR Sdram, not DDR2 Sdram. I posted the link so that the gold plated contacts are clearly shown.

DDR Sdram has 184 contact pins.
92 on each side.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 contact pins.
120 on each side)

Remove the eraser dust with air. Use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth.

Reinstall the ram memory modules.

Computer unplugged from power, press the Power On button in.
Hold the button in for a count of Five seconds.
(Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory settings.

Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on.

I await your findings, and answers to my questions.

If the CPU is dead the problems can be
  1. no power
  2. no fans etc or
  3. power, no beeps (errors)
If the Ram is not compatible it would be constant beeping.

With the board in, and power supply 20pin + 4pin Pent 4 power attached,(#2 and #7 of motherboard layout) remove power cord from power supply.
CLRCMOS0 allows you to clear the data in CMOS. The data in CMOS includes
system setup information such as system password, date, time, and system
setup parameters. To clear and reset the system parameters to default setup,
please turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power
supply. After waiting for 15 seconds, use a jumper cap to short 2 pins on
CLRCMOS0 for 5 seconds. Remove the jumper. Remove heatsink and fan from CPU. disconnect cpu and reseat it. Re-install heatsink and fan. Plug in the power cord. Try to boot up. If it still does not boot and (no power, no fans etc.) problem would then be cpu is fried.
