Make sure the BIOS is set to boot to your gfx card, either PCI-E AGP or PCI, and not your onboard. The long beeping noise is referred to as a POST code. It will usually have a repeating pattern. Check your motherboard manual or visit gigabyte's website to see what the code is referring to. And you never know the card might be bad ESD happens when you least expect it. Try it in a friends PC.

Beep codes on dell xps one 2010


If I understand your issue, it sounds like the display works fine until it loads Windows, and then it has the error? It sounds to me like the video card drivers are crashing. This may be the case if you have recently updated them, or installed a new video card. I would recommend getting the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website on a CD, SD card, or USB drive, and then boot your computer in safe mode. Once in safe mode, install the new drivers, and see if that will help. You could also try using your onboard (integrated) video card if your motherboard has one. This could help rule out if the monitor is at fault. Just make sure your BIOS has the integrated card as a secondary video device if it the (I'm assuming PCIex16) peripheral card isn't found.

Continuous beep beep beep noise.


The Video (Graphics) Card inside the computer is not working. The fact that the monitor displays NO Input Signal shows that the monitor is working. Try connecting another monitor to the computer and you'll get the same NO Input Signal messaged because the monitor is not receiving a signal from the computer as an input source. Also you can try your monitor on another computer just to validate that it is ok.

Won't boot up. All it does it beeps of 2 pause 4-5 seconds beeps again.


Here is a list of beep codes and their meaning. http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm
I would suspect a memory issue. You could reseat the memory card(s) or install new memory.
Even cleaning memory card (the part that inserts into the motherboard - with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol) may work.

you may have to find a manual for your motherboard, which could be difficult if you dont know what kind it is. somewhere on the mnotherboard is a connection for a speaker. the motherboard speaker, which is probbably noit installed, is supposed to give out "beep codes" when you have fatal or serious errors related to booting. if you can get ahold of a cheap little speaker and figgure out how to hook it up to the motherboard, you will get a series of beeps,. once you have the beeps, you need to go to the motherboard manufacturer's website to decipher the beep code.

without the beep code, i can still confidently say-

the problem is prolly your video card or ram, and you ve already checked the ram. if you have an integrated video card, you might be able to disable the integrated card in bios and install a new video card, or you may have to get a new motherboard.

Hi,
This could be an issue with the integrated graphics card( This computer has integrated graphics card) or faulty motherboard.
In order to check he motherboard follow the the steps below:
1)open the computer tower by removing the side panel.
2)Remove all the memory chips(RAM) from the computer.
3)Try to turn the computer on.
4)If it is beeping then the motherboard is fine.
5)If you don't hear any beep motherboard is failed.
****Even if the motherboard is working as there is an issue with the integrated graphics you need to replace the motherboard.
Thanks.

Constant beep and wont boot up


that means you have a hardware failure, if it continuously beeps that means the gfx card ( video card) is not being recognized by the motherboard, but also it could be your ram. And Did you overclock your pc? If so, you failed at the over clock and you need to reset bios to defaults by taking out the lithium battery while its disconected from power. Let pc site for 20 min with no power and battery, once 20 min pass put battery back in and power up pc. Still no boot and constant beep make sure all cards are fully seated ( video card, sound card ect. ) and make sure the power cables are fully inserted as well. hopefully no hardware has to be replaced

Amibios post code on a gigabyte board, 8 beeps 2 beeps 1 beep on GA-6rx board, no video output, have changed cpu, memory, video card, keyboard, hd etc, still no boot----help!

8.2 POST BIOS Beep Codes
Number of Beeps
Description
1 Memory refresh timer error.
3 Base memory read/write test error
6 Keyboard controller BAT command failed
7 General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
8 Display memory error (system video adapter)
8.2.1 Troubleshooting POST BIOS Beep Codes

Number of Beeps
Troubleshooting Action
1, 3 Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.

6, 7 Fatal error indicating a serious problem with the system. Consult your system manufacturer. Before declaring the motherboard beyond all hope, eliminate the possibility of interference by a malfunctioning add-in card. Remove all expansion cards except the video adapter.
• If beep codes are generated when all other expansion cards are absent, consult your system manufacturer’s technical support.
• If beep codes are not generated when all other expansion cards are absent, one of the add-in cards is causing the malfunction. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. This will reveal the malfunctioning card.

8 If the system video adapter is an add-in card, replace or reseat the video adapter. If the video adapter is an integrated part of the system board, the board may be faulty.

PC has died !! I've disconnected all the HDDs, ROM, RAM, Video Cards and still dead. Power light comes on, CPU fan starts up, NO LIGHTS anywhere on the motherboard, two short beeps, followed by third beep....


based on your information the two beeps is an indication that you motherboard is alive and looking for a memory. is the video integrated or you use a separate video card? i think this has something to do with your video. if your video is integrated try putting in a video card
