Your RAM memory modules are failing the power on self test. That is what two beeps or signal alerts means.

You may have these inserted your memory sticks in the wrong slots.

Often slots are color coded. Insert them in two of the same color. Try again. If no success, switch to another set of slots in another color.

If that too fails, insert only one memory stick at a time into bank 1 labeled DIMM 0. This is binary and the numbers start with 0, not 1.

Insert a single stick in bank 0, one at a time until the PC boots.

If it boots on each stick by itself but not together, then you have a bad chip on one of the memory sticks.

Most memory sticks have a decent warranty but there are exceptions.

You may also have a stick that is not seated correctly. The method is to push the stick into the slot evenly with two thumbs each on the ends of the memory stick until the locking tab seats on its own accord. You should not have to force the locking tab into position.

When you put the RAM back into the computer did you return them to their original bank? Dual Channel DDR RAM is particular about being in shared bank with the other RAM module; that's why the color code the RAM Sockets in some motherboard designs so you don't them mixed up. Moreover, is the CPU fan spinning for the short time it is powered up?

My pc is booting but no display


Did you check your monitor with other system or individually. If it works fine in these conditions then the issue belongs to your pc.
First of all, you have to confirm that is it the problem of VGA itself or the motherboard. For this, you have to see that does system beep when you start it because system with beeps having the error and the beep sound with continuous or 2-3 beeps relate with different issues. I am going to write down the beep conditions.

1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen No beep Power supply or system board problem Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 3 long beeps 3270 keyboard card


best of luck!

Hi I am working on a abit A 17 mother board it was taken apart by my nephew. I think I have every thing back togather, but when I turn it on it beeps and shows code 92,well I think thats what the l e d box...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=AI7&fMTYPE=Socket 478&pPRODINFO=Manual

The fault could be the cpu, wrong type of ram, a faulty ram module
or a fault in the mainboard.
Check all the settings in the manual and the bios aswell.

Here is a list of beep codes:
Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

  1. No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board
  2. One beep - board is working fine
  3. One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU
  4. 1 short(Beep) System booting is normally
  5. 2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
  6. 1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
  7. 1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
  8. 1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
  9. 1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
  10. Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly
  11. Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem
  12. A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages
  13. Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).

I am using a intel Dh61ww board with intel i3 2100 processor. When i switch on the pc the cpu fan rotates and halts.no display. pls help me.


The steps I would take would be : 1 make sure you have a power supply with the proper power connections and at least 500 Watts 2 remove and reset the power connections, try to boot 3 disconnect all hard drives and cd/dvd's, try to boot 4 remove all ram/memory sticks, try to boot and listen for the beep or beeps if it doesn't beep and still shuts off, you have a bad motherboard and/or cpu if it does beep, you need to try different ram

Beeps on startup but no video and continues to have long beeps with no video


Check the the cpu, ram and video card are seated properly. If they all are, then the board is defective and will need to be replaced.

I still did not find beep code that match your problem..

Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too.
1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem.
2. 1beep - board is working fine.
3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing.
4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.
6. 1long 1short beep - dram error
7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected
8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error.
9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error
10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected
11. Short beep - power supply error
12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.


Hope this gave you an idea of your problem..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

I am having the computer with Intel 845GVSR motherboard,P4 Processor,1 gb RAM Configuration. When i switch on the system, three beep sounds come and the system is not booting. But the RAM is in working...


For that first open cpu cabinet then refix RAM memory try it in defferent slot on motherbord.
Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings goes to defaults.
Then open processor fan and processor then refix both.
Clean dust from all parts.
Reconnect ATX power connector to motherbord.
Reconnect power cable and sata or ide cable to harddisk.
If any PCI cards are installed then remove it from pci clot then check.
Make sure your motherbord is not ground with cabinet check in outside of cabinet .
Let me know if you need further assistance.
