The Sony site for your model, and there is a BIOS update that fixes an issue with PCI Express video cards, here's the link http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu...d=1714&os_id=7 You didn't mention if your problem starts right when the PC is powered on and you don't get the Sony logo, or if the PC starts loading Windows normally, but then when Windows is about to load up, you get the 'signal timing' message. If it's the latter, then try booting in Safe Mode and uninstall the BFG video card from the Device Manager and reboot. Then install the Windows XP nVidia driver from this link. Reboot and you should be OK *fingers crossed*

Hello,

I guess there is a conflict hardware both your video card. is the mboard has a built in video card? and added new add on card? if this so, then you have to remove first your add on card and use back the built in. then after you successfully boot using the built in then you have the chance to configure the add on card in the bios setup.

Beeps one long and a short installing pci express video card in a Gateway Gt5654


Don't automatically blame the video card. That boot code means memory refresh error. Try reseting your mems. If that fails pull out memory cards one at a time. If one gives the error and the other doesn't, you have your problem. Next, try to reseat the video card more firmly. Last resort, disable to on board video to avoid conflicts. Still think memory u is your best bet.

Firstly, make sure you installed the video card (if it has one) back into the same slot it was removed from.
If you are using on-board video, check the CPU is firmly seated into it's socket, you may have to remove the CPU fan to check this.
Next, check your RAM sticks again. Most (about 98%) of boot up issues arise from incorrectly seated ram sticks or ram sticks that have developed connection issues.
When you boot the machine, does it make any beeping noises..?
Usually, a single beep means all is ok. If you hear multiple beeps, then the bios is telling you about a possible fault and you should count the beeps for number and duration (long beeps or short beeps and how many of each and in what order)
Remove the ram and using some very fine emery cloth, gently remove any oxidisation from the contact pads to return them back to bright metal, then re install them making sure they are seated all the way down and the locking clips are fully seated too.
If you still have boot issues, I would suspect the ram sticks first and have them checked by installing them in another compatible machine, either a friends or at a repair shop.
I would suspect the board last so if the ram sticks check out as good, have a closer look at any other cards that may be installed, especially video cards and internal modems but also check out any network cards that may be installed..
If you are still not getting any display on the monitor, take the machine to a service centre or computer shop as they have the specialist equipment to check out the board electronically ( boot cards, scopes etc).
Let me know how you go and what you find..

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..

P4v8x-x bios dont boot


your problem is in video card, try to remove and clean the connectors (bronze color) with an eraser. then re-install, if the problem still occurs try to hear beep (warning sound). we have different sound for the installed hardwares such as the memory card, video card and the boot sound. if you have installed an expansion video card remove this and use your on board video card to determine if the video card you installed is defective. and if you are using the on board video card install a new video card

There's a pretty good chance your CPU is bad.

Could also be the video card.
