Hello kemas_franky, your Gigabyte GA-6VXC7-4X-P motherboard uses the AMI bios. Each bios has a listing for beep code errors. Click on the link provided for AMI's beep codes;
You need to be 100% sure of how many beeps you are hearing.
5 short beeps means, the system CPU has failed. If you still have your manual, go to page 30. There you'll see the bios name is AMI.
Below is Gigabyte's web site link for your GA-6VXC7-4X-P MB.
Not everyone has a spare CPU laying around so dissemble your CPU. Clean the heat-sink & CPU surfaces. To help you do this I am including a uTube video;
Try cleaning & reapplying thermal grease. (If your old grease is hardened or dried out. (Try this before replacing your CPU).
If you need a CPU & want to buy a new one you'll find a couple listed on this next link; (Prices between $10.00 & $13.00 US).
CPU Socket 370 Pentium III 100/133MHz.
If you find you heard 6 beeps & not five. Try replacing your keyboard. If that does not help than the motherboard controller is bad & you'll have to replace the board. The controller can not be repaired.

I am having one long beep and two short beeps on my gigabyte m61pme-s2 motherboard when i try to boot up...

That is an error code for the video card / device.

Turn off and unplug the computer.
If possible remove and reinsert the video card.

if you have a shared video ( connected permanently attached ) remove and reinsert the memory chips.

If this is the first time to turn you on your computer check first the power supply of your computer if connected to their proper connector. Check your memory if clip properly in there memory slot. If you are using Video Card check it if it is properly connected to the connector. Then connect your VGA connector at the back of your computer when you have video card connect the VGA Cable of you monitor to the video card VGA output if does not have connect it with the onboard VGA output. Then press the power switch if the unit is still no visual in monitor try to search or hear a beeping sound in your computer by its on board buzzer. Find which beep you hear from your computer.

No Beep- No Power, Loose Card, or Short.
One Short Beep- Normal Post,, Computer is OK.
2 Short Beep- POST error, review screen for error code
Continues Beep- No power, Loose Card, or Short
Repeating Short Beep- No Power Loose Card or Short
One Long And Short Beep- Motherboard Issue
One Long and Two Short Beep- Video (mono/CGA Display Circuitry) Issue.
One long and three short beep- Video (EGA) Display Circuitry

I have just installed a 478 socket MSI MS-6526 ver 3 motherboard to my computer and all it dose is bleeps when i turn it on any help would be apricated

check for the error beep if you hear continues beep it means issue with the memory. check the RAM if it is properly inserted to the slots and if it is compatible to the motherboard. if you hear 2 or 3 beeps it means issue with the video. your video card maybe not compatible or not properly inserted to the slot. your motherboard has a built in VGA/Video card try using that first. try connecting the main components memory/RAM, power supply, KB and mouse, VGA card(optional you have a built-in) then check if there is a display or if it booted. then one by one add your other components you want to add. just to trace the problem.

No display when the computer is tuned on

try to release the memory (ram) from *********** board, turn on your pc without any ram, and you should hear a sound beep (voice) if there is any sound the problem is on your ram (memory), clean your ram using a pencil eraser or replace with a new one, if there is still no display maybe the problem is with your vga (display adapter), but if you didn't hear any sounds when your memory (ram) was release the problems is in *********** board or your processor..

hope this post can give you any solutions.. thank you

DDR2 Ram allergic problem....

When using different kinds of RAM together in the same computer, there is a general rule that the Slowest Ram has to occupy the first slots (the ones closest to the CPU and usually numbered on the Motherboard)

This is possibly the cause of your ram error although they're both 400Mhz, just try re-arranging them.
I think the Ram Error Code is two long beeps and the video error is one long beep and three short beeps.

Also, watch the Ram counter when you first turn the computer on, or check the "My Computer" properties to see that all the RAM installed is recognized.

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops

Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike

You might have damaged the CPU/ motherboard during the process of overclocking.

Check your CPU on other compatible mobo.

Check your mobo documentation properly & set the jumpers rightly. If that doesn't help, you will have to replace the mobo.

Step 1). Attach SMPS, Front Panel Connectio, and an in built speaker and CPU (don't add RAM, HDD, FDD, VGA Card or any thing els)

Power on and watch:

Case 1: if you can hear a long beep, then you CPU and board is OK

Case 2: No beep means CPU or board is faulty. Try to Reconnect CPU again and do step 1.

Step 2) Now power off and add RAM only.

Power on and watch.

Case 1: if you can hear the ok beep it means till now your RAM is Ok
otherwise clean your RAM connection and add it again.

Further you can add your VGA, HDD CD-ROM/DVD, PCI Devices etc. and easily short-out your problem.
