Re: Boot beeps

Re check all inserted pci cards and all memory, reseat if necassary. Have you recently upgraded anything, if so remove. Continuos beeps can also indicate processor power failure.

One long beep is a ram module failing.
Try insert one module, and reboot.

Long continuous beep on boot (no boot) ,monitor keeps off, Boistar BIOS, i checked the fan, the keyboard and also the memory... what it should be then??? should i throw the PC from the window??

A long continuous beep could be a video card problem or video RAM problem.
Try reseating the video card or try a different video card.
If the video card is builtin on the motherboard then it uses shared RAM and the RAM module may be faulty or needs reseating. Try testing the RAM at your friendly computer repair shop.

Motherboard power is on but cannot display screen, the monitor is black or no screen.

your problem could be almost any of your hardware components
the best way to detirmine wich one/how to fix it is with a process of illimination. You should do this by switching your hardware components with known good ones.
being a display problem the order i would test with is this.
  1. disconect everything but the screen
  2. swap screen for a known good one
  3. disconect graphics card and try the onboard (if no onboard try another gc)
  4. test psu (power supply unit) this can be done with either a psu tester, multimitre or try with another psu
  5. try removing all your RAM, when you boot if your system beeps a couple of times you know that your motherboardand cpu are good. if it doesnt beep it is probably your motherboard or cpu.

My pc doesn't boot anymore.

This code usually refers to a Video card or RAM issue. Try reseating both the video card and then RAM to see if it fixes the problem. If not then try removing the video card and rebooting. If the system starts without the beeps then you'll know the video card is bad and you can replace it. If it still beeps then try removing the RAM one stick at a time, rebooting after each removal. When it boots you'll have the bad RAM stick isolated and can replace. Hope this helps.

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

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.
