Question about Gigabyte GA-6VXC7-4X-P Motherboard
I turn on my computer and I hear five or six beep. My RAM and VGA is good, I tried replace on another board and ok.
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; http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/amibeep.htm
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; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dCa7CZ_3sI&feature=related
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; http://www.thefind.com/computers/info-pentium-iii-socket (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.
