Hello, here is a list of beep code for Award bios chip, which is the one present on you memory card:
repeated beeps - DRAM error repeated short beeps - Power error Repeated high & low beeps - Processor is damaged/Overheated
1 short - System boot successfull 2 short - CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short - DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short - Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short - Keyboard error 1 long 9 short - BIOS ROM error
I don't remember the speed of the repeted beeps for the award bios. But in your case if this is not a DRAM issue, you might try to check if the beeping remain the same once the cmos battery removed (the flat batterie that looks taken out of a watch). If so this means that it needs to be replaced.
Go to the AOpen website (http://usa.aopen.com/index.aspx), click on download. In the drop down choose mother boards and then your model. Now if you click search it will bring up all downloads for your motherboard. Near the bottom of the list is manual, Click on the language of manual you need. Download from one of the FTP sites listed, the manual will contain a drawing of *********** board and were everything plugs in.
You can also take a flash light and magnifying glass and try to read on the mother board itself were every thing plugs in. Some motherboards have the information printed right on them, in very small mouse print.
This is most likely a memory error. You didn't say if you've done any work inside the computer but if you have double check that the ram is seated correctly.
You bios is award and these are the beep codes:
Beep code brief: 1 Long Beep: Memory problem 1 Long Beep and 2 Short Beeps: Video error Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem Any other beep pattern: Most likely Memory problem
1 long Beep: Memory problem Something is wrong with the memory installed. Check out the troubleshooting memory problems FAQ for details. Note that there could also be something wrong with just accessing the memory (ie the motherboard has a problem).
1 long beep, then 2 Short Beeps: Video error The motherboard is not able to access the video card for some reason. Either the video card is not working, it's memory is not accessable, or it's BIOS may be corrupt. This error code could also mean something is wrong with the motherboard.
Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem This is a tricky situation... likely the problem is either memory or the video. This can also be found when the motherboard is faulty.
