The solution may be to locate the JBAT1 terminal and move jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and back again. Turn on pc and then hopefully you can access the bios to set the time and date and save settings then re start.

    Check that the driver isn't corrupt, run a little video test, go to Start>Run, then type 'dxdiag' and hit enter.

    If all else fails check that your agp card is set to the primary graphics controller in the bios settings, or uninstall driver, restart pc and let windows find your card again and install the driver, although don't let windows install it's own generic driver as it may cause problems.

    I'm assuming when you say VGA card you mean AGP, as VGA is normally the standard on board graphics set up which would be a different driver.

Continues two beeps and wont boot

From the time it start beep it means either your ram or video card is not good. My recommendation would be checking to connections of the ram and the any other card you have installed on the motherboards or simply just dis connect them wait a couple seconds and connect them back properly and firmly.

Mobo fried? Beeps when startup but no video. I reseated ram and video card, with no luck. Both fans work and it sounds like it is booting. I tried older video card too but nothing. Thanks for any...

Try removing the display card and using the onboard VGA. Remove the BIOS/CMOS battery for about a minute and then reinstall it in the correct orientation. This will reset the BIOS/CMOS to it's default settings. You say it beeps once, this means that it is fine the mainboard is ok, it is not experiencing any problems. If it beeps in a continuous manner then it is the RAM that is causing the problems, I would say that the default settings may solve your troubles. Remember to enter the BIOS/CMOS when during boot up to reset the date and time by hitting the delete key. Also try entering the BIOS/CMOS even if you can't see any thing on screen, by doing this it may come up. let me know how it goes, I am here to help.

Thanking you

Try removing your memory and than reseat it. One DIMM at a time and boot the system in-between each.
Still hear the double beeps? Its possible one DIMM may be defective. Continue.
Clear the bios. See page 1-7 in your manual. When the bios has been reset everything will revert to default settings. The onboard graphics will give you back video. Enter the bios and set the bios so the PCI-E card is used. Save and exit. (Most likely your PCI-E card also needs a power adapter connected).
If the system goes back to double beeps try removing the PCI-E card and than reseat it. (Possible loose connection).

Happy 4th!

No beep sound after switch on my desktop computer but power led of CPU are on and glowing , drive light are blinking and screen is black. Inspite of checking the memory ...

hmm if it not beeping it means that is something wrong with the Ram memory ..check if its right inserted ...and is it is ...remove the bios battery , to reset it ..and might have to reinstall cause sometimes when everything appears to be ok .but get blank screen its cause you messed up with the video card driver ...or collor setings...reinstalling will fix the problem if its from there ..but cause its not beep-ing at boot means its not recognizing the RAM memory ...
So ..the cause may be multiple ...either you changed the frequency of the memory ..and its out of its range ...or you have made changes on the memory configuration ...( changed ram or added more...) and in this case its just making a little click like its booting in looping ...if the memory its still working ...removing the battery for a few moments and restarting will get the bios on the default optimal factory settings ..and it will take the memory frequency at automatic values ....Good luck !

Abit nf8-v keeps beeping when turned on. no video

How is the beep sounds? Long beep and three short beep or one (-...) or all long beep?
For the first, usualy the VGA connector is not correctly seated, so the motherboard can say it has no output device and beeping.
The last is usually memory problem. Try, unplug your memory board and replug it again, make sure that it is correctly seated.
