Question about Computers & Internet
Mother board beeps three times quickly with the GeForce & the LeadTek two quick followed by 8 medium length beeps, nothing appears on screen & does nothing else, this only happened after adding PCI-E video card, onboard video still runs, but was insufficient for the games I want to play, so I bought two identical cards from different makers, Leadtek WinFast PX8800 GTS TDH fan double slot 320bit 320mb gddr3 & a GeForce version that's single slot & water cooled. I have pared the system down to just the new Cooler Power 750W PSU Part No. P4N8-N 3.3v-24A, 5v-30A, 4 separate 12v rails all at 32A, -12v-0.5A, 5vSB-3A, no -5v rail, though it runs with onboard video... Two sticks of Kingston ddr2 800 2Gb ram, as before this board runs with these memory sticks, it just doesn't show 4Gb due to 32bit AMD Phenom x4 9750, this CPU runs at 2.4Ghz, but runs happily @ 3.2 with about 6 degrees C above normal on standard cooler, no temp increase noticed with water cooling... Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500Gb Sata II Hard Disk, over 3 years old, but still runs like new, with a fresh install of Win XP Pro SP3 & all updates integrated into the installation files, including drivers for almost everything (which XP never had), up-to July 2012 most non essential parts of windows has been removed to improve performance including defrag, notepad, wordpad & many other parts of windows that normally can't be removed, they were never installed, I own many original versions of windows, from Win 3.1 all the way through to Win 7 & most variants of all versions, until I got win 7, then I gave the disk away & downloaded Win XP Pro the Pared Down version for people who want a bleeding fast Win XP Pro PC, yes it had been hacked, by an ex-microsoft employee, who knew what he was doing, he did leave the code entry system alone, so that only genuine Win XP Pro holders could use it, he even beefed it up a little to not work for the many codes that are floating around the internet. The first time I loaded this, I was gob smacked at how fast it booted, 5 seconds from the post screen, which shaved over 40 seconds from the bought version, with it's hundreds of updates that windows HAS to wade through, not with this version, it's only got to glide through a few new one's, auto update is locked on, the usual place to activate or deactivate is not there, but there is a load of tiny apps that do the jobs of many things that were removed, all non MS stuff, but the new defrag tool is VERY configurable, it even runs in the background while PC is using say 25%(adjustable) of CPU power, it can even move immoveable files! Even Quicktime, Flash etc is all there, Apple will NOT be impressed, but they may like it that Safari is there also & IE is NOT !!! OOppss, sorry about the OS stuff, but I couldn't help myself, it's SSSSSSOOOOOOOOO good, I just had to tell you, if you want to know where to get it try demonoid.com or piratebay.org, you also need utorrent & peerblock, run both before you search for it...
All that typing and you still didn't list your motherboard make and model ?? different motherboards have different BIOS's and their respective beep codes are different for each
try looking in the BIOS and checking the video section for a PCI-e setting. sometimes it has to be set to look for a PCI-e card first, especially when the motherboard has on-board video.

Hi this is tech crazy
The solution to the problem is as follows
The main reason for CPU fan overworking or not working is due to the load we put on the syatem while operating.So,the first reason for fan not working may be due to the SMPS malfunctionality.Better check out for it.The reason if fan is working but Overworking is due to viruses is system.So go in for format
Hope this solution helps you
Please do rate me on the above said solution

Make sure your RAM is pushed in fully, even if the tabs have clicked, it may not be fully in, especially if your ram is wide (heatsinks etc) test it with one stick till it works, then get the other working :)

SOURCE: no post to bios on new pc build
FIRST....... Make sure you remove the stock thermal compund (pasty/sticky stuff) from the bottom of the heat sink as well as from the top of the cpu.........
Second APPLY some ARCTIC SILVER 5 compound-ust a thin coat of it over the top of the cpu......use an old credit card.....keep it ff the sides and bottom though......it's important not to use too much........one little tube will do anywhere from 3 to 5 CPUs...!!!
(stock thermal paste/thermal compunds......**** BADLY and can cause a cpu to burn up)
reseat (properly) the cpu and carefull
Now make sure you're 24 pin or 20+4Pin Power connectors are connected, as well as your fans..........disconnect all your SATA Devices, and remove everything but the video card , CPU, and fans.......Now it should post (if all your jumpers are set correctly...........
IF it still doesn't post, remove the video card and reboot.
If it doesn't beep at all......... You have one of 2 things.........A DEAD CPU, or a DEAD MOBO
