You may be using the wrong type of memory. It is unusual to have all 4 memory slots not working at the same time. If that is the issue, then the MOBO is faulty and will have to be replaced.

OFF the machine completely remove all the cards from the board and then refit it properly again in proper places.also clean if any dust in the slots where u fit the cards and the ram.then ON the machine it will work.also remove the cmos battery and check if it has any power left in it by touching it to your tongue.it will taste like salty and burning sensation then it it is ok.or replace the cmos battery.its not any costly.
and then check out your machine will work properly.

Make sure you have the memory stick installed the same way so that it can be recognized by the computer and make sure that the memory slot can take a 1 Gig stick because some of them can only take 512 megabytes.

Hey,

remove all the memory, start up, it will beep.
Place one module in and try to start up, count the beeps short and long and report back.

Either you are using the wrong RAM modeules, or the motherboard is faulty.

    Three short beeps is indeed RAM error.

    Be careful that on Award bios 1 long to short is video card error, in that case check video adapter, if video is on motherboard, then it can be a faulty chipset.

    Regarding the motherboard, you first test it with minimal set of components, without disks and peripherals, and with only one ram module.

I have rebuilt this computer several times. from the ground up. now I get 3 long persistant beeps. according the computer home .com is a video problem? is this true? Thank, Jack


PC generates three long beeps (1 Second Cycle three times then 2.5 Secondds Pause) when there is Memory (RAM) Error. Try inserting DIMMs again. Make sure that the timings (Clock Speed) of DIMMs are compatible (matches) with your motherboard.

What is 3-3-2 beep tone meaning


System doeIf there is one DIMM in the system the memory row/bank may be disabled when there is a memory failure. The system will not boot because it has no memory to use. If the DIMM is replaced with one of the exact same type and size, then the system will continue not to boot. BIOS cannot tell when a DIMM has been replaced with one of the exact type and size, therefore BIOS believes it is still the bad DIMM and will not use it.

Here are two possible workarounds:

1. After replacing the defective DIMM, continue to reboot the system until you hear the "no memory" post beep sequence (3-3-3) during POST (no video display). After three (3) incomplete boots, a "062 three consecutive boot failure. Using default CMOS configuration caches are off" error will occur. At this point BIOS will go back to the default settings and begin to use the new DIMM. However, if you have disabled the 3 boot fail count (this setting may not be available in all servers) in Setup, then BIOS will not turn the DIMM row/bank back on.
-=OR=

2. Remove the DIMM. Power on the system until the "no memory" post beep sequence (3-3-3) is heard. The memory row/bank will now be marked as being empty. Power off the system and put a good DIMM back into the system. The memory DIMM row/bank is re-enabled and the system boots normally.

NOTE: If more than one DIMM (or more than one DIMM set) is installed in the server and one memory (or one memory set) row/bank is disabled due to a memory failure then, the user must go into setup and re-enable the row/bank after replacing the bad DIMM.

Boot Problems... Complicated...


The IBM Netfinity 5600 is a complicated beast for sure. You really need to get a copy of the Netfinity Manual from IBM (not on the web site fyi.). It's as big as the machine unfortunately. In section 3, p.124 it lists 3-3-3 beep code as "No memory has been detected in the system" solution is "Reseat mem modules or install mem modules. If prob persists get machine serviced." On the previous page, 3 short beeps (only) on POST indicate "system mem error. combo only occurs when video bios cannot display error msg. replace the failing mem module." You might also want to check the light-path diagnostics inside the machine. A little light will be illuminated right beside the bad DIMM.

Beep sound


This problem is due to the mix of registered and unregistered DIMMs. 64Mb and 128 Mb DIMM's are unregistered memory technology 256MB is registered memory technology.
A mix of registered and unregistered memory prevents the server from completing startup, and results in an error beep sequence and a blank screen..Use registered memory and it will be fine..
