It is important to install the original drivers form the cd or form the website of the motherboard.

But i think you were trying to say that the os is not booting.
Check the following:

All IDE drivers on each cabels are jumpered correctly.
ex: harddisk is master and optical drive is slave.
If they are both master or slave it could do some IO conflict.
Your hard drive (that you are about to install the operatning sytem on) does not contain bad sectors.
If this occours you can see blue screens too.

check that the processor's fan holder isn't damaged , the problem can be coused by an incorrectly installed fan on the socket, usually done by overheating.

Hope this helps.
Oh and don't forget:
This motherboard only supports Celeron processors form 400 mhz and Pentium 4 from 533 mhz, it means Celeron D and pentium D can not be used.

Maximum installable memory with correct operation : 1gb do not mix the ram ferqencies. so don't use 266mhz ram with 400 mhz and so aon...

X6dh8-g2+ no video continous beep

Hello here is the homepage:

Try to boot with only one stick of ram at the time, to find the failing ram module.

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 sound, 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.

The mainboard is useing Up to 16GB DDR2 RAM.

Try not to buy cheap ram, they are always failing.

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

• 1-1-3
Explanation: Your computer can't read the configuration information stored in the CMOS.
Diagnosis: Replace the motherboard.

Getting 3 beeps on my MSI 870-G45 motherborad

If they're happening during POST (After the bios screen loads but before the OS boots), it could mean a memory error. Also, it can depend on the length. If they're three short beeps, it's the memory. Long and short combinations mean different things as well. You can find a good description of different beep codes in the source.

You can verify a memory error using memtest86+. It's a burnable ISO you can easily find on google. Turn it on and let it go and it will let you know if any tests fail. If they do, it could just be one of your cards. Try taking one of the cards out and turning the computer on to see if it still beeps. If it does, switch cards. Also try putting them in different slots. Usually the combination of switching cards/slots will let you know if it's a bad card, or a bad slot.

ASUS P4S533-MX Motherboard

Does it have a built-in system beep buzzer? or else you need to connect one. The system beep has a code and will tell you if your video is not connected or your memory is not detected.
Try to make it boot even until the bios screen. Check your video card or your monitor connector. A single beep is a good sign that your motherboard has no problems. hope this helps

3 Beep sounds-No boot

As you probably know 3 long beeps on an Intel motherboard is memory failure. Even if RAM is good your Motherboard may have problems in reading your ram module.
If you are using a PCI or AGP video card try also removing and putting back video card, video adapters use shared RAM and can give you troubles with RAM.
Always perform all maintainance on motherboard with power unplugged and avoid to touch contacts and circuits with your finger.
If the 1GB module is new, verify with seller that your motherboard support this memory, some motherboard do not support double density RAM.

Video error beep codes not video problem

Sounds like Bad Memory chips try just using one chip. even though youve replaced the video card. so im guessing memory could be bad, at least one of them.

try not reseating them but just using one at a time in the slots

also yeah reseating the CPU can help too, an over heating CPU will still boot up, but not advisable. make sure heatsink is present and fans are working. thermal grease is good too on cpu.

but check memory if you have mixed memory like 128mb and 512mb chips try smaller one first if it works then try the higher one.

but sounds like a memory problem, they can go bad almost instantly.

Hi m_o_redz,
If you are using the on-board (integrated video), S3 Graphics Chrome9 HC Integrated Graphics core. Than check you're video cable, video cable connection. Try another monitor. If all check out ok than the MSI integrated video is defective. Suggest you install a PCI-E video card.
If you are using a PCI-E card, try removing it. Clean the copper contacts using a cotton swab & alcohol. (Let it dry) Than reseat the PCI-E card.
Try booting again.

Good Luck!

Mother board

Remove all peripherials, i.e .drives, video cards, even memory. Leave Power Supply connected. I hope you disable power while removing or installing components. Try to boot up motherboard with nothing except P/S connected. Assuming no beeps there, hook up one or both memory modules at which time there should be error beeps indicating no video card attached, etc. If you are then getting the bios beeps, there is a good possibility that the motherboard is good. If there are no beeps, then one has to consider the possibility of a bad motherboard or a damaged bios. Tell me more about motherboard manufacturer and model #.. All this is necessary to properly research your issues

I'm going to assume you supplied the proper 8pin 12v connector besides the necessary 24pin, right? Unplug all cables to any internal peripherals, even data cables. Since you're getting random LED errors, I would remove the video card, open up one of those ancient computers to remove a PCI video card, install it on this board and boot to CMOS. I'd also prepare a Memtest86+ boot diskette and check each memory stick individually (that is if you have a PCI video card output). Keep monitoring/logging those LED errors (to note any type of pattern). The onboard MOLEX power connector, used to provide additional power to the PCI-Express slots when using x16 cards in SLI mode, is located between PCI slot 2 and the board's edge, as a last ditch effort, try powering it up when the Single SLI card is installed. Otherwise, you have either a mal-performing power supply (regardless the total wattage), a funky video card or a DOA motherboard. Always need to carry a known good PCI video card, I use a Matrox Millenium. OH... and take a good slug of your favorite liquor. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
