What is the meaning of 3 long beep of Soltek mainboard?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:''Table Normal''; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:''''; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:''Times New Roman''; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}Since a month ago, my computer has not boot 3 times. Eachtime, with pushing power button it sounded a long beep and this sound wasrepeating every 30 seconds. Resetting computerdid not solve problem and wonderfully it was not turned off with pushing Powerbutton and I turned off it with plugging off it from electricity. Since a weekago this problem has not existed but I think it will repeat soon, due to mycomputer boot with unusual sounds that continue until a few minutes.
I did not find in themainboard user's manual about beep codes and I did not find anything aftersearching Internet for meaning of this special beep code. Please help me.

    Thank you robshow. I am not comfortable inside the machine. I think I must know the reason and take the computer to a hardware workshop for repair. What you tell is the meaning of that beep code?

Try the following. If you are comfortable inside the machine.


Discharge static by touching the metal of the computer case
2.) Unplug and reseat all cards in system Video Sound etc.
3.) reseat ram chips in slots

You should be good after this.

D845GVAD2 no bios screen no beep no boot


Hello here is the intel homepage:

https://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&ProductFamily=Desktop+Boards&ProductLine=Intel%C2%AE+845+Chipset+Family+Boards&ProductProduct=Intel%C2%AE+Desktop+Board+D845GVAD2

Try to renew the power supply, with one you know is working.
I think that`s the problem.

The problem could ofcourse also be the mainboard itselves failing.
There is not much to do about that, other than renew the mainboard or buy a new pc.

Good luck

No video out


If you get a beep when you turn on the computer that means its working, multiple beeps indicate an error, no beeps at all mean that the processor is not initiliazing..

TRY
turn off computer and unplug it
1.) locate the jumper called or labled jp1
2.) its a 2 pin jumper and is currently set to 1 and 2
3) set it to 3 and 4
4.) set it back to 1 and 2
5.) try turning on the system

if you cant locate the jumper or yours is different what we are trying to achieve here is clearing the cmos. this can be done using the jumper or

1.) unplug your system
2.) remove the memory
3.) remove the battery
4.) press the power button 5 times to discharge the capicators
5.) replace batter
6.) replace memory

Try booting it now

if the above fails

try taking out your processor and putting it back in
if your mainboard has a clockspeed setting ensure it is set according to your porcessor clock speed (look at manual for details)

ensure you got all the necessary power cables connected

If you had the problem before you changed our processor then it night have been your mainboard that needs changing.

If you have a video card,ensure that the monitor is plugged into your videocard and not the onboard video the mainboard comes with.

Try your processor on another system to ensure its working, just cause it new doesnt mean it is good.

You can try clearing the cmos multiple times with the memory pluged in or without the memory to see if that helps

if all else fails then ensure you check the processor , only if the processor is good replace your main board..

My dell inspiron mini 10 cums on with a beeping sound and d screen just comes on without showing nothing but jus a the light...i have visited some shops and they say its a hardware problem and i need to...


Just because you got it 4 months ago does not mean it can't have problems. Good thing is you are still under the manufacturers one year warranty.

What type of laptop is it? What operating system?

See if one of the steps below helps solve your problem.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lightswhatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of thepower cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning,lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear theDvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for asecond or two? If so the laptop is trying to boot or may have booted, butthe screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with thelaptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issuewhen you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problemis with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and takenote of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe your power cord is bad if you don't get anything to happen whatsoeverwhen you press the power button. And if that's true maybe you wasoperating off the battery the last time you had it on and since the power cordis bad, it was not charging the battery so the battery is drained and the powercord is bad.

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, Remove theBattery, then Press and Hold the power button for 30seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in (leave the batteryout) and hit the power button to see if it boots. If it does, you can putthe battery back in and let it charge.Maybe your DC Power Jack which is where the power cord plugsinto the computer is bad. Take an ink pen and push the tip inside thejack and see if the little pin wiggles, if so the jack is bad. You'll have totake the laptop apart to fix it. Most times it is soldered onto themotherboard, so you will have to desolder the old and solder a new one.Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

No bootable device means your computer is trying to boot from a storage device and it's unable to find the operating system. Check the your system BIOS to see if your computer is still detecting your harddrive. To do this:

1. Reboot your comp. While it's coming up, keep hitting "Delete". This will bring up the Set Up.

2. Using the navigation keys of your keyboard, navigate to the tab that says "Boot Preferences" and hit enter.

3. Switch the boot device to your harddrive and save your settings then reboot.

4. If your harddrive is not being detected, it's either loose or has gone bad. In which case it would be best to have a tech take a look at your notebook.

Soltek sl-k8av2-r motherboard


check your display card. it seems to be faulty.
If its onboard then use any PCI display card and try to boot. If its booting up then its confirm your onboard display got damaged.
Other than check settings in BIOS if there is any setting for VGA/VGA etc..

You could try re-seating your ram and your video card if applicable.
2 beeps generally upon post depending on the bios is video or unstable ram.
Depending on how many sticks you have on the board try re-seating them if that doesn't work diagnose the faulty stick by putting them in 1 at a time.
Hope this helps

Three Beeps


Was there a screen message when the 3 beeps occured, as this sometimes indicates that the cmos time and date are incorrect, so check your time in the bios (f2 or Del on boot up), if it's wrong the cmos battery will need changing.

SOLTEK SL-65K2-CT Motherboard


The beep pattern is a beep code and is how the motherboard communicates errors during the early booting process otherwise known as the POST (Power On Self-Test). List restart the computer and listen for the pattern of short and long beeps. Soltek does not list the beep codes in their manual, instead they refer to Phoenix who manufacturers the AwardBIOS on your motherboard. There are only two POST beep codes; a single long beep followed by two short beeps (Video error) and anything else. Apparently anything else you hear *probably* refers to RAM problems. Since you?ve already tested both one of the remaining options is to install a *POST* card (about $30 to $50), boot the PC and read the hexadecimal error code for a more detailed clue to what failed. If you ask around you might find someone who has one and may be willing to loan it to you. Another option is to write off the motherboard since the cost of the test equipment it about 1/3 the cost of a new board. Let us know if you have any other questions and please don?t forget to rate the posing.
