BIOS won't start

I went away for Christmas, when I came back I tried to turn my computer on. All the fans came on but the bios didn't initialize so i couldn't get power to my hd or my monitor. I tried the Clear CMOS Jumper but I still got the same thing. It's an MSI K9N2GM and i've only been using it for a month, maby two. i'm really hoping fora quick fix cause I don't want to wait another month for a replacement.
Hope somebody can help.

MSI K8T Neo-2 motherboard beeps when turned on. Initially froze in windows splash screen. Wheen had rebooted just beeps, not bios or anything to the monitor screen.

The Beeps at start up usually signify a memory fault. You may have a failed RAM stick and just swapping slots will give you the same problem. Get a known good stick and fit it in place of all of yours. If it works, then remove the good stick and start fitting your own memory one stick at a time until you isolate the failed stick. The removal of the graphics card with no change isolates that from the list.

Failed bios recovery on ASUS P5S800-VM using support cd

Hi there.

If you look on any support/bios update forum/website, you will find that flashing the bios is very risky. The reason it's risky is because of what you just described.

While flashing the bios, the bios chip memory is deleted and then the new bios is written. If you lose power, system crashes, or anything that interrupts the flashing process, the chip is rendered useless.

The computer turned off while flashing, and the reason there is no screen is because there is no bios to load. There is no way to reverse this or repair it.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and are confident with electronic components, you may be able to pick up another bios chip on the internet, but you will have to solder it to the board yourself.

Otherwise it's a new motherboard.

Sorry it wasn't good news

P4M-915G/PD1 no screen, no BIOS, only power.

Do you hear any beeps at all? Do you have a system speaker on the motherboard? If not, plug a 2-pin system speakers onto the motherboard where it says "speaker" and listen for some beeps. You may have a fried CPU or dodgy RAM on your hands. Possibly even a faulty AGP/PCI-E slot, to name a few.

I could not access BIOS or anything else on my computer.

Starting the PC without memory will result in a ?beep code? error, which is the beeping you are hearing. Replacing the memory should make the beeping go away. As far as accessing your BIOS if you PC won?t display anything they accessing your system BIOS won?t accomplish anything. -When you start your PC with the memory installed do you see anything displayed on the screen? -Was the PC operating correctly before your reinstall? -Why did you void the CMOS? -Why did you remove the PC memory?

Asus P4pE not booting.

The beeps you hear are probably BIOS error beep codes. Through a series of long and short beeps the BIOS communicates what type of error is occurring during the initial stages of the start up process. If you can tell me the manufacturer and model number of the board AND the sequence and length of the beeps I can point you in the direction to go.
