Asrock K7S41/K7S41GX problem

I have a very frustrating problem with the above mainboards - put a system together in usual fashion - have built several machines now, this is first AMD system though - no boot - 3 beeps - checked beep codes = mem read/write error. Cutting a long story shorter, I now have replaced board, chip, memory, and run all combinations of original and replacement items. Jumpers are correct for FSB vs. chip speed vs.memory. Drives plugged and unplugged, monitor the same, keyboard and mouse also. Even tried power supply from another machine. Still always those 3 beeps. There must be something fundamental I've missed surely. Anyone come across a similar issue. Thanks in advance. Chandla installed a Asrock p4vm890, checked bios, installed netcard, rebooted. Not getting anything but 3 beeps.

2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

3 beeps is usually either video card related, or memory. be sure your memory is UN buffered, and DDR400 or 333 DIMM not DRam.

Remove and re-seat your video card as well.

there should be a troubleshooting guide in your install manual stating the designation of 3 beeps.

    Thanks for using FixYa. Your Rating of my solution to your problem was THANKS FOR TRYING. I would appreciate a re-evaluation of your rating - as the answer I gave was correct. There are not many experts that provide answers to FREE questions beacuse anything under HELPFUL reduces their overall rating percentage.

    The description FixYa uses for the rating system is misleading - a THANKS FOR TRYING means the answer was not helpful in solving your problem.

    We are working toward a better rating description to help alleviate the bad ratings.

    I took the time and answered your question to the best of my ability and request a change to at least HELPFUL.

    Thank you.

I lost my mother board CD sis 963LUA

Hello try the site here:

Please select your windows system.

Some of the files maybe needs to be unziped, before you install them.

Or this site:

The drivers should fit the mainboard.

If not, visit the mainboards or the pc`s homepage in search for the drivers.

Good luck.

    ASRock K7S41 / K7S41GX, sound 3 Beeps 3 times, then power off automatically

    I had 3 beeps, pause, 3beeps, pause and so on.

    Defective SMD transistor near the ATX power connector. Original is a 2SB1202 (marking B1202).
    I bought a 2SB1203 which is stronger and soldered it in. The K7S41GX board runs as fresh as from the dealer.

    Powers on for a second and shuts down


    i am getting you this manual cause you can check what i am about to tell you here. make sure the jumper plugs are on the correct pins and that the BIOS settings match the configuration you have and especially make sure the power,reset,led,led2,powersw,speaker,sys pins that come from the power button and so on are over the correct pins on the motherboard!
    good luck!
