Five long beeps at a range of five seconds then, repeats


Five long beeps for a modern motherboards indicates a processor failure. If you wish to remove the processor and re-seat it (reconnect it to see if it begins to work again) make sure to get some thermal compound to put between the CPU chip and the heatsink. More info at: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/How-To-Correctly-Apply-Thermal-Grease/274
POST AMI BIOS beep codes
  • 1 - Memory refresh timer error
  • 2 - Parity error in base memory (first 64 KiB block)
  • 3 - Base memory read/write test error
  • 4 - Mother board timer not operational (check all PSU to MB connectors seated)
  • 5 - Processor failure
  • 6 - 8042 Gate A20 test error (cannot switch to protected mode)
  • 7 - General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
  • 8 - Display memory error (system video adapter)
  • 9 - AMI BIOS ROM checksum error
  • 10 - CMOS shutdown register read/write error
  • 11 - Cache memory test failed
  • 12 - Mother board does not detect a RAM module (continuous beeping)

Computer suddenly dies intermittently


Hi..

In this case when it is always beeping during the computer is on. You need to check the memory stick if it is not faulty. Remove the memory stick and clean it from dust. Clean also the memory slot and reinsert the memory stick. If the problem still occur try to use the other memory slot.

Good luck!

Asrock p4s61, tried 1gb pc3200 to max memory to 3gb, won't boot.


you quote one of your memory sticks as being pc 2700 when earlier in your text you qoute pc3200.

Firstly pc 3200 is 400 mhz clock speed memory.Secondly, pc 2700 is 333mhz clock speed and you acnnot mix the two on the same board. Thirdly does your board support 3ghz anyway. If you are running a board at 400mhz, pc2700 memory will not run at 400mhz.

Solution, take out the pc 2700 memory and all will be well.

Fried MOBO component or lost drivers?


1) unplug power cord for 10 minutes
Then when booting
2)Try setting your BIOS back to default
3) Remove all fittings on M/board except foot Video and memory. Including hard drive DVD CD etc and see if computer boots if it does try fitting others one at a time (with computer off of course )rebooting each time
These are only some suggestions to define if M/board is OK

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....
