Replace the memory, as this can give you a fault on it's own if not fitted. Reset the cmos by shorting the CLRCMOS jumper or the JBAT1 terminal on pins 2-3, then back to pins 1-2 on the mobo, and try again. If you can get in the cmos and set the time and date etc, yet you still get the beep there could be a processor problem, but if it freezes in the cmos set up then you will have bios chip fault, so take back the whole kit to your supplier, as he may wish to try it himself first before replacing.

Short beep long beep


1 long, 1 short beepSystem board problem When your computer boots up, the Basic Input-Output System (BIOS) performs an all-systems Power On Self-Test (POST).
The POST tests your computer's most important components, including the motherboard itself, the system's memory and the video card.
If the computer deviates from its standard beep, it may indicate a very serious problem with your computer, or it may simply indicate that you need to replace a system fan or a memory stick. BIOS beep codes vary according to manufacturer.

Start your computer.
Pay attention to the number of beeps and the length of the beeps.
There are short and long beeps.
Write down your observations.
Write down the BIOS type if this information is on your screen.
Consult your computer documentation if you don't know what type of motherboard you have.
Visit your computer manufacturer's support website for your computer model if you purchased a pre-built machine.


Look up your BIOS manufacturer (AMI, Award and Phoenix, for example) at a BIOS beep code website such as 5StarSupport, PC Hell or PC Guide (see Below).
Match the your computer's beep code with the beep code listing for your BIOS manufacturer.

Sc 5100 beeps on startup


These are EACH... DIFFERENT SYSTEM CONFIGURATION ERRORS at boot
Check that you have not changed any hardware/added any hardware and that these changes were/or have not TAKEN EFFECT yet
Power down system.... use CMOS RESET pin config jumper to reset your boot configuration(s) changes
Multi-"BEEP" error messages are usually connected to RAM CONFIGS. and I would suggest uninstalling ram chips..... but ONLY AFTER FULL SYSTEM "power drainage"!!!... i.e. pulling power plug from your PSU, removing system battery or unplugging it's terminal wiring mobo connector, and pressing the POWER BUTTON on your system

Hp slim line s700n beeps one short, one long when powered on


One Short followed by one long beep is indicative of a Memory problem. Unplug the power from the slimline. Remove the case to expose the inside and wait about a minute to make sure no lights on the motherboard are still on after unplugging the power cord. If you have more than one memory chip installed try removing one of them and sit it aside. Leave the cover off, plug the power cord back in and try rebooting. If it doesn't boot unplug the power cord, wait till all lights on the motherboard are off, then move the memory chip that is already in to the other slot that was occupied by the memory chip you have set aside. Plug the machine back up and try rebooting. If you still have a problem remove the memory chip and set it aside, now do the same thing with the initial memory chip that you set aside (that is trying it in both slots to see if your computer reboots). If you get it to boot successfully, make a mark with an ink pen or felt pen on the chip that is set aside because it is probably bad. You can try placing the chip you marked on back in with the working chip and see if your computer boots. If it does, it simply means your computer's memory just needed to be reseated, if it does not boot you know for sure the marked chip is bad so leave it out and take it (the chip, not the computer) to a repair shop to buy another chip.

I have installed a I7-870 cpu in a intel H55TC mainboard after assemblein the computer does not show the display and is beeping sound is comming Memory used is Kingston 2GB DDR3


The graphics ports on this board are only usable with Core i3 500
series (530, 540, etc.) and Core i3 600 series (650, 661, etc.) These
Clarkdale CPUs have built in Intel HD Graphics which would power
use the onboard ports. You have an i7 870 Lynfield which does not
have built in graphics, so these ports are for all intents and purposes
"dead".You will need to purchase a graphics card to get a display.
This is the case with all H55 and H57 motherboards.

Replaced power supply on T2240 emachine now cant get onboard video" or any video,also tried PCI video card with no results. Need video to see if machine can boot


the fact that your not getting any video is that your computer is not booting or it can't boot right now.

might be best if you found someone to test and help you with it or if you took it to someone.

Backup server won't boot up


Is it USB or SATA drive? In the BIOS there is an option to allow USB boot device.
