From the time it start beep it means either your ram or video card is not good. My recommendation would be checking to connections of the ram and the any other card you have installed on the motherboards or simply just dis connect them wait a couple seconds and connect them back properly and firmly.

SOURCE: no boot, got continuous beeps at first, reset my 'savage2000' VGA card

The solution may be to locate the JBAT1 terminal and move jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and back again. Turn on pc and then hopefully you can access the bios to set the time and date and save settings then re start.

SOURCE: Unable to run Auto Installation Support CD, or Boot System

Is the new motherboard the same model with the one you have replaced. If so, there should have no problem on it. If it is different model, then you have to reconfigure the software installed such as the driver. your new motherboard surely has the CD included where the necessary software should be installed. But, the problem is that you cannot get to the WindowsXP screen..

Windows XP CD is also bootable.. Now in the bios setup there is a portion there that tells about on how to boot whether in drive a, hard disk or cd. Choose CD and inser the bootable Windows XP. In that way you should be able to get to the XP screen. Of course, you have to restart it to make the necessary changes but before that make sure you have saved the changes youve made to the bios setup.

Now if youre able to go to the main screen, uninstall software that are with your old motherboard and install the new one.

Hope to solve your problem.

Memory upgrade on gx280 beeps on boot but doesn't start. memory beeps 1 234 5 6


When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer. The other issue is if that model supports 4 gig memory.

Dell ispiron m5040 beeps three times and will not power up


2 Short Beeps Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your SIMM's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard. 3 Short Beeps Basically the same thing as 2 beeps. Follow that diagnosis above.

Dell 620 2beep sound how to solution


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.

Dell optiplex gx860 continuous beep


This indicates a motherboard problem, first remove the ram one stick at a time and test as you go, if one stick is bad the computer won't start up. If memory checks out, remove hardware one at a time and put back as you check up the ladder, if all checks out the motherboard is the most likely issue.

Amber light on the motherboard is on i hear several beeps and it doesn't boot up


Usually beeps emitting from the computer indicate a memory error.. Try to re-seat the memory modules. If that doesn't work then try removing 1 module at a time to see if you have a bad memory stick.

Make sure that your RAM modules are tightly held in place. I suggest you turn it off, remove the battery, & re-seat the memory modules in place.

My Dell XPS 730 needed a new CMOS battery I changed this but now it wont post get no beep errors and it doesn't get to the DELL screen. There is power everything lights up and fans start going but no...


I believe you have used the wrong type of CMOS battery. Try putting the old one back in and see if it will boot. If not the CMOS NAND chip may be broken. If this is the case contact Dell and order a new one.

PowerEdge 2850 server beeps as soon as it is turned on - 3-2-1 beeps format. What has failed?


the beeps are post during post the very first work is done by the ram,all the memory in the ram is first transferred to the hard disk,and remains active untill turned off.

make sure that your RAM is securely seated

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have and end to function
obvisously the beeps are windows searching for some hardware it could be RAM cd/dvd hard drive or motherboard all of these must have secure connections for the computer to work
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps

I have a dell computer no video it beeps 2 twice continuely


Hello.

The most common reason is bad memory.

Disconnect all cables, touch metal, and remove the cover. Remove all memory modules. Insert one at a time and boot your computer (with the cover off) to test.

Hope this helps.
