Question about Soltek SL-65KV2-T Motherboard
Pent 111 880Mhz 64 Mb RAM PC won't boot. Just makes one long beep one after the other until turned off. Re-seated RAM, tried another video card and Known good RAM but no change.
The beep pattern is a beep code and is how the motherboard communicates errors during the early booting process otherwise known as the POST (Power On Self-Test). List restart the computer and listen for the pattern of short and long beeps. Soltek does not list the beep codes in their manual, instead they refer to Phoenix who manufacturers the AwardBIOS on your motherboard. There are only two POST beep codes; a single long beep followed by two short beeps (Video error) and anything else. Apparently anything else you hear *probably* refers to RAM problems. Since you?ve already tested both one of the remaining options is to install a *POST* card (about $30 to $50), boot the PC and read the hexadecimal error code for a more detailed clue to what failed. If you ask around you might find someone who has one and may be willing to loan it to you. Another option is to write off the motherboard since the cost of the test equipment it about 1/3 the cost of a new board. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posing.
