Question about Intel (RK80532PG0881M) Pentium 4, 3 GHz Processor

1 Answer

3 Beep Diagnosis

My computer won't boot nor display anything. It happened when I used the computer for about 12 hours. I think my processor overheated because according to the help about beep codes which I researched, 3 beeps means there is something wrong with the 1st 64KB of memory or a malfunctioning processor. Can somebody help me?

    What motherboard do you have? Post beeps are done in the bios so the model of the motherboard is key.

Hi Sue.

Remove the power cord from the back and then take out the motherboard battery for half an hour (you need to remove the side panel from the case to access the motherboard) after the half hour is up pop the battery back in and connect the power cord, see if that resolves the problem.
The fact that you can hear 1 beep indicates that all is fine so I doubt you have fried the BIOS chip.
Also, if you have a stand alone graphics card installed remove that and clean the contacts, then reinsert it.

Plesae post back if you have more problems.

Good luck.

Beep Code Explained


Thanks to Transcend Technical Support for this great Brief of understanding beep codes that is found here
This is a long post and it may be truncated at the bottom. If so, use the link above to go to the Transcend web site where these are found




1.General POST (initial system boot) BEEP Codes
If you do not know the BIOS manufacturer, the following will be the general Beep codes:
• 1 Long and 1 Short Beep ?Bad Motherboard
• 1 Short Beep and nothing else happens ?Disk Drive/Video Related Problems
• 1 Long and 2 Short Beeps ?Bad Video Card
• 1 Continuous Beep or Non-stop short Beeps ?Bad Power Supply
• 3 Short Beeps - Bad Memory
2.American Megatrends Inc. (AMI) BEEP Codes
• 1 Beep - Memory refresh timer error.
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 2 Beeps - Parity Error
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 3 Beeps - Main memory read / write test error.
Reseat the memory, or replace with known good modules.
• 4 Beeps - Motherboard timer not operational
• 5 Beeps - Processor Errors
• 6 Beeps - Keyboard controller BAT test error.
• 7 Beeps - General exception error.
• 8 Beeps - Display memory error.
If the system video adapter is an add-in card, replace or reseat the video adapter. If the video adapter is an integrated part of the system board, the board may be faulty.
• 9 Beeps - ROM checksum error
• 10 Beeps - CMOS shutdown register read/write error
• 11 Beeps - Cache Memory Bad

Beeps 4-7, 9-11
Fatal error indicating a serious problem with the system. Consult your system manufacturer.
Before declaring the motherboard beyond all hope, eliminate the possibility of interference by a malfunctioning add-in card. Remove all expansion cards except the video adapter.
?If the beep codes are generated even when all other expansion cards are absent, the motherboard has a serious problem. Consult your system manufacturer.
?If the beep codes are not generated when all other expansion cards are absent, one of the add-in cards is causing the malfunction. Insert the cards back into the system one at a time until the problem happens again. This will reveal the malfunctioning add-in card.
3.Award Bios BEEP Codes
1 Long Beep: Memory problem
Explanation: There is a failure of some sort related to the system memory.
Diagnosis: The first bank of memory probably has a failure of some sort; this is usually just a physical problem such as an incorrectly inserted module, but may also mean a bad memory chip in a module. It is possible that there is a failure related to the motherboard or a system device as well.

• 1 Long, then 2 Short Beeps: Video error
Explanation: The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.
• 1 Long, then 3 Short Beeps: Video error
Explanation: The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.
• Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem
Explanation: The system is producing constant beeping in no specific pattern, or a fast "ringing" sound.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem.
• Other Beep Codes
Explanation: You have encountered an Award BIOS beep code I do not have documented.
Diagnosis: Award says that any beep patterns other than "one long followed by two short" are likely problems with the system memory. However, of late they have started adding other beep codes to their systems as well.
4.Phoenix BEEP Codes

It may be caused by overheating. Overheating is the main problem with HP portables. Use a fan to cool down the computer and check how long it last working. If blowing air with a fan "Appears to fix the problem" stop using the computer and get maintenance service for it. The processor area needs to be cleaned.

CANT BOOT . ONLY PROCESSOR FAN MOVING. I AM H/W


Disassemble the machine completely and clean the Heatsink fan, blow away the dusts from the motherboard, if possible use brush to wipe away all the dusts. Reassemble it, but don't connect or install anything on the motherboard except the the power supply, the cpu with the heatsink and the system speaker. Now plug in the mouse, keyboard and the monitor (please connect the monitor on the integrated VGA port on the motherboard). Plug in the power chord on the back and short the two terminals of the power switch pins on the motherboard's Front Panel connectors, i.e PWR and GND with a screwdriver or with any metallic object you think is suitable (shown below):
nonontech_33.jpg


Remember to switch on the mains switch (wall outlet connected to the power supply) and make sure both the power connectors on the mother is connected, i.e. 20 pins and 4 pins.
Check the status on the monitor and listen the beep codes (the system speaker is compulsory for this diagnosis). If you see anything on the display or if you could hear the beeps, note the beep sequence (let me know if it's not 2 beeps or 3 beeps, if it's 2 or 3 beeps, the proceed forward), Switch off the machine and install one memory stick (Ram) and reboot. If it was 2 or 3 beeps, then you should no longer hear them, if you still hear the same beeps, then try with another Ram on another SIM bank(s) [Ram slot] after the machine is put Off and boot again.

If you don't hear anything or you don't see anything on the monitor, then your motherboard is bad or perhaps the integrated video card is dead or it could be the BIOS chip itself. I would suggest you to replace it, as it's not worth repair. Buying a new one will cost you less then repairing this motherboard under such circumstances.

If you see or the beeps continues, try with another working Ram, it should definitely work if the Memory module on the motherboard is still working, otherwise.. I would again recommend you to replace it.

Well, in case if it's successfully booted or the display is ok, then proceed forward by installing the component one by one and reboot everytime you install a component or plug in connector (s). You'll be able to find out the culprit, whether the hdd, or the Dvd/Cd drive or the front panel switches or others.... Will need to replace or will need to repair.

Please update so that I will be able to assist you further.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Don't understand?


take the extra ram board out
when a system fails to boot properly, it indicates a problem hard drive (HDD)
cmos batteries just keep the program for the chip operational and nothing more )
take it in to a computer repair shop for a proper diagnosis
if it is the hard drive ( has all of the operating system , files and folders ) replace it with a solid state hard drive (SSHD) as it has no spinning disc to fail

No display


If it boots with no video, then it is a bad built-in video controller. If you get a long beep then its the processor.
