When you see the 1st windows screen, "Starting Windows", quickly press the F8 key several times until you get a screen that shows several lines with the top line saying "Safe Mode". Move up to this line and select it. The system will enter Safe Mode. If you can enter safe mode then you have a driver problem or some other software problem preventing the system booting. This could be the case if you just installed a new motherboard on an existing hard drive with Windows already on it.

I have an OEM PC with mainboard MSI p965 Neo Today it is not working (no startup screen, no ugly beep messages etc).. I have only a blank screen..

First of all test the power source on its own. Good? Take out the board of the case and keep on it just the video card and try to boot into the BIOS. No good? Try to boot using another video card, then another memory sticks and finally another processor. If none of them had an effect then the motherboard is dead, replace it.

MSI K8N Neo V2.0 beep code problem is continous beeps.

That's usually a bad ram stick. Shut down the pc & remove one stick at a time starting with the one furthest from the cpu & work your way down to the first one. When it boots without the constant "beep", you found the bad one! You can also check & look in the support area for a solution if mine is wrong.(I'm never wrong though,lol)

Continuos beep, No post no screen on 925xe neo. that i'm puting together from spares, I think it maybe a ram issue but before i go out and buy some more want a second opion

Before you buy new memory.
Remove your system memory and clean both sides of the contacts of each DIMM with a drop or two of house hold alcohol onto a cotton swab. Do not touch the contacts after cleaning. Reseat the memory and boot the system.
Your MSI 925XE Neo Platinum uses the Award bios.
Click on the link to open bios beep codes descriptions;
The 925XE Neo Platinum MB,
Supports up to 4GB memory size.
Supports Dual channel DDR2 memory architecture.
Supports DDR2, 400/533MHz memory.
You can also test your current memory if you wish. You can download this free testing software;
Scroll down the site to just below the three screenshots. Memtest86+ V4.00 (22/09/2009).
You can create a bootable CD or floppy disk drive software that will test your current system memory.

Hope you find this helpful!

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
