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.
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=1432
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.

Thank you for using FixYa kemas_franky!

Turns on blank screen with 4 beeps


This is a list of beep codes for a different Dell laptop, but the chances are they will use the same codes for each product.
4 Beeps indicate a RAM issue. Try taking it out if you are able. If you have two memory strips, alternatively remove one and leave one in, see if its just an issue with one of them.
If you only have the one, the only way to see if this is the issue is to get a replacement in. Might be worth going to your local pc shop

Beep Code indicators
One - Possible system board failure or BIOS ROM checksum failure
Two - No RAM detected
NOTE: If you installed or
replaced the memory module,
ensure that the memory module
is seated properly.
Three - Possible system board failure or Chipset error
Four - RAM read/write failure
Five - Real Time Clock failure
Six - Video card or chip failure
Seven - Processor failure

Hello

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.

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.

At start up, before windows loads, a consistent series of annoying beeping occurs....


If they're occurring right as you turn the computer on, it's your Power On Self Test (aka POST) letting you know. Since I can't be more specific, here's a synopsis of POST beeps:

One single beep followed by three, four, or five beeps -- System-board problems, possibly with DMA, CMOS setup chip, timer, or system bus. The computer usually won't boot when this is the problem.

Two beeps -- The POST numeric code is displayed on the monitor, usually nothing to be concerned about, but you might google the code on another computer and see what you get.

Two beeps followed be three, four, or five beeps -- First 64K of RAM has errors. Solution is to replace RAM.

Three beeps followed by three, four, or five beeps -- Keyboard controller failed or video controller failed. Either you won't be able to see or type with this error.

Four beeps followed by three, four, or five beeps -- Problem with serial or parallel ports, system timer, or time of day. Check your BIOS settings (usually F2 at start up) to make sure everything is correct.

Continuous beeps - problem with power supply. Probably won't do much with this error. At the very best, your computer will boot and run very, very slowly.

Hope that helped.

the vga board has failed, its a very common problem in acer laptops, you can get a replacement part from www.acerparts.com im not sure if they ship into us but for europe thats where I get my parts.
my acers vga failed two times, ones within warranty and 12months after that, I have to say that acer products are really bad quality, I'm not sure about the latest models but from what I've seen the vga chipsets have real issues with the motherboards and keep failing over and over again.


I have not looked inside your model but the vga is either integrated into the motherboard = that means the repair will cost the whole motherboard, better to buy a new one.

if your model has a removeable vga like mine does, then you can consider changeing it to a new one. contact acer parts.

One of the covers in the bottom is the memory, one is network and last one I don't remember.
here are the contact details if your acer is out of warranty
http://www.acerparts.com/contact_us.php

The parts for your model are at http://www.acerparts.com/index.php?cPath=561_562_1064

you will have to contact acer parts directly, it may be that the vga is build into the motherboard or then the vga parts are not listed.


Hope this may help;
