Re: SOLTEK SL-65K2-CT Motherboard

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.

the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.
make sure that your RAM is securely seated
test or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive make sure the connections are secure including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA the ones that attach from your

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

Got a soltek sl-k8av2 rl upgrading RAM

The motherboard takes DDR 400 ram so make sure you dont put anything higher than this in.

At present i am using 2 x 512MB DIMM's, but am unsure if it will take 2 x 1024MB DIMM's. If it does, it may require a BIOS update (1.6 is the latest but 1.5 is readily available through a google search).

When you get the beep, are you still able to get into the BIOS? It might be worth checking what speed the RAM is set to. It should default to AUTO. If you need to clear your BIOS then look closely at the motherboard for JMPR1/JMP1/CLRCMOS in small white writing on the PCB.

Good luck :]

PC won't boot

It can be either the RAM or the Video card. If you have put a new Video card then check with the old one.

Replace RAM and check. Best of kuck

check your display card. it seems to be faulty.
If its onboard then use any PCI display card and try to boot. If its booting up then its confirm your onboard display got damaged.
Other than check settings in BIOS if there is any setting for VGA/VGA etc..

You could try re-seating your ram and your video card if applicable.
2 beeps generally upon post depending on the bios is video or unstable ram.
Depending on how many sticks you have on the board try re-seating them if that doesn't work diagnose the faulty stick by putting them in 1 at a time.
Hope this helps

U have to find the motherbord's manual !!!! U will find there all u need. But most probably u won;t be able to put those processors (the speed diferences are too big, even if they are of the same slot type)
