Dear Sir/Madam,

It sounds more like a prob with the disk not the motherboard. Also check the bios setting is everything enabled/disabled properly. Connect some other working condition of harddisk in your system if it worked or not. It will be know the processor or motherboard problem. Also try these steps before above suggestion...

1. put in the cd and turn on computer
2. windows will load and say something about "press F6" to install raid controller drivers"
3. Start hitting F5 instead of F6!! ....
4. It gave me an option that said something like. .."standard PC i486"
5. setup finished and finially went past that damn screen we all hate

thanks
good luck

SOLUTION :1. If you have 2 ram then remove one and give it a try to install windows.If still you have problem then try with other ram..
2. Select boot option in BIOS as 1st - cd/dvd rom 2nd hard drive. Disable floppy drive,or boot to network.Also if you see this option "Sata native support" then disable it..Now try to install windows.
3.Remove any usb connected hardware like printer or flash drives.
4. It could be because bad processor,so temporary have another processor and give it a try..
5. Also it could be because of bad sector on your hard drive 
WISH YOU SUCCESS

There are only 2 reasons for no display :-


1. may be virus that might have affected the pc. Can corrup any of the windows file and if any of the main file is corrupted, its a possibility that the windows might have crashed.


Try to install the operating system again.If that would solve the issue its perfect UNLESS


2. Defective motherboard. Either u need to repair the motherboard or u need to replace that.
If u wish u wld love to send u how to repair motherboard.

If you are reading this, you have a bad mainboard. Replace it under warranty or have a generic substitute that's specific to Emachines installed. You may have to use Ebay to purchase a board for your PC as the mainboards for Emachines are are built in China/Taiwan for Emachines specifically. Rarely, can a replacement board be purchase off the shelf.

I have dell optiplex 360 but LED ligth remain on does not turn green when i powerd on.no signal , beep sound and display


Believe it or not it is probably your Power Supply. Just because it lights makes the system lights up does not mean it is working properly. Sometimes it has enough power to make the light glow, but not enough power to make the fan in the power supply start or any other functions.

You can also try the things below to see if they work, if not replace the power supply.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the computer?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the Memory or Video Card when you hear beep tones or blinking lights. Notice the pattern of the lights and blinks. Do you get 1 Long Blink or Beep? Maybe you get 1 Long followed by 2 Short Blinks or Beeps.

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Memory Chip might be bad.
Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Hello

If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.

No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short.
One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK.
2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code
Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short
Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short
One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue
One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue.
One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry
Three Long Beep- Keyboard/ Keyboard Card Error
One Beep, Blank or Incorrect Display -Video Display Circuitry

No Display, No Response


Do you hear any fans? You may need to open the computer case and look inside to see if you have any led's or fan's functioning. If you do not see any lights on the mother board or working fans, check the fan inside the power supply by looking through the fan guard. If you do not see the power supply fan working, make sure you have the computer plugged into a live outlet, and the power cord is good. Furthermore, look for a switch on the back of the power supply to make sure it is switched to the on position. If you still have no working functions of the computer, go to a computer store like Comp USA or Best Buy and purchase a power supply tester which you may find for under ten bucks. Touch the metal case of the power supply while removing the main power connector of the mother board. Always touch the metal case of the supply to discharge any static, or you could cause immediate or future damage from weakened static sensitive components. Plug the power connector into the power supply tester and make sure all lights light up. If no lights light up, you can check the fuse on the supply if it is external, or you will have to open the power supply to check the fuse. Alternatively, you can buy a new power supply which you will need to do if some of the lights on the power supply checker light up.

If the fans work on the computer and the power led's work then you may have a bad video cable connection, video card, or monitor, which will need to be checked individually. If you hear any beeps, check your manual for the description of the number and duration of the beeps which will indicate bad video or memory sticks.

I hope this helps but you can reply if you have any other questions. I think it could be the power supply with all the storms this time of year which could have killed the Power Supply which is easily replaceable.

I have a Gigabyte 8s648FX-RZ MB system. When I power it on the fans work but a hear a loud beeping like a phone ring. It is constant except for a pause every couple of seconds. No display and I don't hear...


This is a POST (Power on self test) failure. Check your power supply and memory. Also try removing all add in cards and powering up. Could be an add in card has failed and causing the POST to fail.

My computer turns on. all fans working but will not boot. no beeps.


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Philips screwdriver
  • Small flashlight
  • Motherboard or system manual
  1. Listen for a series of beeps when you turn on this computer. These "beep codes" are listed in your motherboard's manual. The codes vary by manufacturer, but they can indicate problems such as non-functional memory sticks, a non-functional video display device, or non-functional or improperly attached input devices.
  2. Check for a green LED light on the motherboard which indicates the presence of an electrical current. Consult your manual for this light's location. If this LED does not light up, it's possible that your motherboard has been damaged. Possible causes include physical impact, power surges or a large static charge. If that is the case, your motherboard needs to be replaced.

    If it is under warranty, consult the manufacturer (unless you have a warranty from the store where you bought the computer or motherboard, in which case you contact them). In the case of a power surge, any devices that were connected to the motherboard at the time of the surge may also need to be replaced.
  3. Make sure the display screen's cables are secure. If you hear no beeps, and you have verified that the motherboard is operational, it's possible that your display screen is not functioning (something that the motherboard cannot detect). The problem may be as simple as a loose or faulty cable. If these are secure, try alternate cables if available. If you have another desktop or laptop nearby, try plugging your display screen into those computers to verify that the display is operational.
  4. Take a look inside the case with the power off, and look at how the video card is attached to the motherboard (unless your video is integrated into the motherboard). If the card is at even a slight angle to the board, you need to push it down gently but firmly until it is at a full right angle. Verify that the video card's fastening device (usually a small screw but sometimes a latch) is present and flush.
  5. Look at the rectangular memory sticks, usually found in between the CPU (Central Processing Unit, which will have a large fan on it) and the storage devices. These sticks also need to be flush. They will click into place when they are properly seated. Try removing one stick (unless you only have one), and starting the computer. Sometimes the stick is faulty, other times the slot is faulty.
  6. Check your storage device connections. Your hard drive needs to have an internal power cable coming from the power supply, plus a data cable going from the drive to the motherboard.

Fan running, HDD light solid, no display


I assume there are no post codes (beeps)?

Pull everything including the video card, leave only the RAM and CPU installed.

Try powering it on, You should hear a long beep, then some short ones to tell you the video card wasn't detected.

If you still don't get any post beeps, try resetting the BIOS, and re-seat your RAM.

If it still doesn't post it could be a system board mounting issue, bad system board, bad RAM, bad CPU, or bad Power Supply

At POST I get 2 short beeps


it depends on the bios chip maker Here's some other beep codes:

for Award and Phoenix BIOS:

1 short beep: Normal
2 short beeps: CMOS error
1 long and 1 short beep: DRAM error
1 long and 2 short beeps: Video card error
1 long and 3 short beeps: Keyboard error
1 long and 9 short beeps: ROM error
Long continuous beeps: DRAM not installed correctly
Short continuous beeps: Bad power supply


AMI BIOS:

1 short beep: DRAM flash error
2 short beeps: DRAM ECC check error
3 short beeps: DRAM detect error
5 short beeps: CPU error
6 short beeps: Keyboard error
8 short beeps: Video card error
9 short beeps: ROM error
1 long and 3 short beeps: Bad DRAM
1 long and 8 short beeps: Video card error


Invoking Beep Codes

.

If the computer is actually functioning and the computer beeps continuously, then there is a problem with a voltage on the power supply being incorrect or the CPU overheating. IMMEDIATELY go into the BIOS and check CPU temperature, fan speed and voltages

**********************************************
BIOS Beep Codes

Annoying isn't it? You have built your computer you switch it on and then nothing happens except a few beeps from the PC speaker. Frustration sets in as you try to figure out what is wrong with it. If you didn't already know the computer has already told you the problem. It can't speak of course but it can direct you to the problem. Its all in the beeps. The BIOS can recognise when the problem occurs and sends a signal out to send a certain amount of beeps through the speaker. These beeps then tell you the location of the problem.

Unfortunately not all the BIOS' use the same codes as each other. Two of the main BIOS manufactures AMI and Award (now Phoenix) have different codes for there errors.

AMI BIOS

# of Beeps Error Description
1 Refresh Failure The memory refresh Circuitry is faulty
2 Parity Error Parity error in the Base (1st 64K) of memory
3 64K Base Memory Error Memory error in the base memory (1st 64K)
4 Timer Not Operational Timer 1 is not functioning (also caused by error in base memory)
5 Processor Error CPU error
6 8042 Gate A20 Failure Unable to switch to protected mode
7 Processor Exception Interrupt error The CPU on the CPU card generated an interrupt error
8 Display Memory Read/Write Error Video adapter is missing, incorrectly seated or has faulty memory
9 ROM checksum error The ROM checksum does not match that of the BIOS
10 Coms Shutdown Register Read/Write The shutdown register for coms RAM has failed
11 Cache Memory Bad The cache memory test has failed. Cache memory will be disabled. *** DO NOT enable it ***


With the first 3 beep codes, its well worth re-seating the memory just to make sure that it's in correctly. 8 Beeps is probably the most common in my experience. Can be caused by a badly seated Graphics card. If you have re-seated it then check with another Graphics card in the board.

Always check for loose components before sending the board back as this is the main cause of errors on the POST.



Award BIOS

Award states that they now only use one beep from there BIOS. This beep is one long beep and then two short beeps. This indicates a graphics card problem. Any other beeps should be treated as a RAM problem first and then the board sent in to be inspected.

The reason that the Award BIOS only uses the beep code for display problems is that it tries to display the error on-screen if at all possible. If the BIOS cannot initiate the display adapter then this causes the BIOS to make the beep code for a display error, which must be corrected before any other errors can be determined. Memory Test fails and hard disk failures etc will all be displayed on screen

IBM BIOS

The IBM BIOS works with Short and Long beeps as well as the Award BIOS. However the IBM one does still have codes to work from.

Beep Code Error
1 Short Beep Normal POST, System booted OK
2 Short Beeps POST Error - Code on Display
No Beep Power supply or Motherboard error
Continuous Beep Power supply or Motherboard error
Repeating short beeps Power supply or Motherboard error
1 short, 1 long beep System board error
1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter error (MDA/CGA)
1 long, 3 short beeps Display adapter error (EGA/VGA)
3 long beeps 3270 keyboard card
Phoenix BIOS
The Phoenix BIOS works on a slightly more complicated manor than the others. It does display an error code for you and produce a series of beeps. This BIOS produces its beeps according to the hexadecimal code the error produces. The Phoenix BIOS has many different codes for its possible errors and so many different beep codes. Rather than list the entire section here, I have provided a link to the official PDF file containing the codes and how they are derived.

Phoenix BIOS Post Codes

System board errors should be looked at by a specialist, Again always try to re-seat components to ensure they are in correctly. If necessary take all components out except for the RAM CPU and graphics card, then try the system. Re-seating components is the number one fix for getting past the POST screen. One badly seated components can cause the entire system not to function. so pick out your bios and follow the steps above to diagnose .hope this helps

Barebones troubleshooting


Lex -

I would first check your ram, make sure its the right type and rating for the motherboard. Although most systems will beep at post for a memory issue, sometimes reseating the memory alone can clear up a startup hang.

If the memory is seated okay, the right type and speed rating, try using a different video card in the system. Its possible that the system is starting up normally, but not being displayed.

If neither of those help, minimize the system. Plug in just the bare minimum needed for operation - Power supply, processor, heat sink & fan, a single memory stick, a single hard drive, video card(if its not integrated on the motherboard). Plug in a monitor and the power cord, then see if the system boots.

If all that still fails, verify that the CPU fan AND the Power Supply fan are spinning when power is on. If so, this points to either a bad memory stick(try another), bad processor(if available, try one at a slower or faster speed), or bad motherboard.

Hope this helps!

VGC-RB50 Display Problem


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I think that the MB or the processor just took a dive on you. Most likely the processor... as you are able to power up. If it were the memory or the video card, you would hear a series of beeps when trying to start the computer. And you already verified the monitor is fine.
