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?

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).

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.

It makes few siren sounds, and then display "boot system failure"


Never heard of a HDD making siren sounds but if you mean a series of beeps from your PC then they are codes which indicate the problem.

See here for how to interpret them.

The problem is-- your motherboard is not able to detect the system RAM.It's the sound you hear as siren.Open the PC and slowly remove the RAM from motherboard and clean the slot and the RAM legs with a clean white paper and place it again.It will solve your problem instantly if the RAM is not burn out.check the other RAM slot by placing the RAM again if the above procedure does not work.

If the problem still persists,replace the RAM.

Blank screen, not boot screen.


Not all of this applies to you but the links for the beep codes may well be of use to you.

Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)

If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Beep codes Pc

More beep codes

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.

If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.

If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.

Now connect one drive only and boot again.

Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.

Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem

If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it

Computer when turned on will not boot and makes a long beep continuously and then makes like a siren sound


The long beeps probably mean a problem with RAM. So try replacing it. Check whether the CPU Cooler (the fan on top of the processor) is working. If the fan is not working, the processor gets hot, and a siren sound is emitted. Also check whether power unit fan (at the back) is working. If RAMs are replaced and you still get the beeps, the problem may be with the VGA. (The beep sounds help to identify the problem, but the sounds differ with different BIOS models).
