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.

3 log beeps on power on


Gigabyte doesn't list 3 long beeps as an error code, so I'm not sure if you're actually getting 3 short beeps or maybe 1 long and 2 short or... But, for reference, Gigabyte's error code list is as follows (depending on whether you have an AWARD BIOS or an AMI):

(AWARD BIOS)
1 short beep: System normal
2 short beep: CMOS Error
1 long beep and 1 short beep: Memory error
1 long beep and 2 short beep: Graphic card error
1 long beep and 3 short beep: AGP error
1 long beep and 9 short beep: Memory Error
Continuous long beep: Memory not correctly installed
Continuous short beep: Power supply unit failed

(AMI BIOS)
1 short beep: Memory Error
2 short beep: Memory parity check error.
3 short beep: Basic memory 64K address check error
4 short beep: Real Time Clock malfunction .
5 short beep: CPU error
6 short beep: Keyboard error
7 short beep: CPU interruption error
8 short beep: Graphic card error
9 short beep: Memory error
10 short beep: CMOS error
11 short beep: CPU cache memory malfunction

It might not be a lot of help, but it's somewhere to start... and at least this way you'll know what to be listening for.

that's a functional motherboard you got there. The beep that you hear is an error beep for not reading a ram. Yes, you will insert a ram that is compatible with your motherboard. No you can't use that without a video card. If you've got a spare video card put it on your motherboard

Try taking the video card out and replacing it back...making sure that it is properly seated...if you can obtain another video card...try replacing the video card...this will rule out the motherboard if it works.

Please help me to determine the problem of my PC, it has no output or display on the monitor, the processor fan is spinning when pluged and then will turn off after a minute, the power supply is ok because...


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.

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!


Hope this helps ... from the Ami BIOS website ....

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.

Want to use dual monitors with sapphire x1550


no. if the integrated gfx are automatically disabled when you insert an add-on vidoe card,. then the internal gfx does not support dual monitor mode.

I got beeps on my pc


1 Long beep and 2 Short is Graphics related.

Change GFX card if PCI/AGP
or if onboard install a GFX card and see what happens (with RAM and CPU reinstalled)

if it still bleeps with new card then remove power from PSU, remove BIOS batt and wait 10 mins (or do the bios jumper trick)
(still with new card installed)


just a thought... its always best to remove Data cables from board aswell as power from the devices (hdd,odd etc)

let me know how you get on...
