Know what the ->enter BIOS Setup key is?

It's on the bottom of the computer manufacturer logo screen.

Got it?

Now press the CTRL and ALT and DELete keys at the same time.
Restarts the computer.

JUST AS SOON AS IT STARTS, start tapping on the enter BIOS Setup key.
Tap in 2 seconds intervals.

If you hear beeps ignore it. These are Stuck Key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is making them.

Still No?
Turn the computer off by holding the Power On button in, for 10 seconds.
WAIT 20 seconds, then press the Power On button.

AS SOON AS YOU PRESS the Power On button, start tapping on the enter BIOS Setup key. The rest is above.

Regards,

[The time period to enter BIOS Setup goes by F-A-S-T!
As soon as you see the computer manufacturer 'splash screen', (Logo screen), it may be TOO late. The above method makes sure you get in BIOS Setup ]

Computer POST and beep codes
The computer power on self test (POST) will test your computer to make sure it can boot properly(test hardware and sys requirements), once it does the computer will then finish the boot process. Normally, if your computer passes the POST test it will beep once or possibly twice. If the computer fails the POST then it will either not beep at all or generate a beep code.

The beep code you receive can indicate what may be wrong with your computer. The beep codes vary depending on your motherboard BIOS manufacturer(AMI, Award, Phoenix). You can find what BIOS you are using by paying attention to the BIOS screen when your computer boots up. It should tell you what brand BIOS.

You can usually find the meaning of your beep code by doing a simple google search i.e "phoenix beep codes". Below, I have provided links to sites which go over beep codes and their respective meaning.

AMI BIOS Beep Codes
Award BIOS Beep Codes
Phoenix BIOS Beep Codes

The computer needs to be opened up and the mother board small round battery removed with the lap top battery out of this unit threw the complete process should now external power be plugged in or battery installed. After it is open remove the small round very shiny chrome battery in a holder after removal leave it out 10 seconds.

When i asked the computer to shut down it got to the entering the sleep mode then came back with the dell logo screen and turned black with a blinking dash at the top


!. Update the BIOS version by downloading it from dell.com/support. 2. if it still has the same symptom, enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2 while on POST and load the BIOS default. 3. if problem still persists, check the power management settings in your windows environment (only applicable in vista and 7.)

When cut on dell gx280 no lights come on or video sounds like fan over CPU is racing. won't boot at all. Was working fine


If there is no beep codes or the 4 LED's in the back aren't lighting it could be a plethora of possibilities. Anything from the power supply going bad to the bios. You'll need to have someone take a look at it.

Beeps 6x


POST ("power on self test") codes for the Dell GX280 are in a format of n-n-n as in 3-1-2. This would sound like 3 beeps, followed by 1 beep and finally 2 beeps. If you're not paying attention, that 3-1-2 beep code could sound like 6 simple beeps.

Dell has a page for the GX280 dedicated to Troubleshooting Tools and Utilities. There's a great deal of information on it - but the POST codes you're looking for are explained in detail about mid-way down under "Beep Codes" This document and associated links should go a long way to help you properly diagnose the problem with your GX280.

Please take a minute to rate this reply if it was helpful to you. Good luck!

How can I change the motherboard boot logo


Hello,

The EPA logo and the Fullscreen logo all are stored in the bios. That is the update 
you download from the manufacturer's website contains both the logos in it. So if you mod the bios update and then apply the patch the next time when you boot your computer you will see the new logo.

***BEWARE A BAD FLASH CAN RENDER YOUR MOTHERBOARD USELESS****

Software Used

Winflash 1.51 ftp://ftp.ecs.com.tw/driver/bios/flash/winflash151.exe
Award Bios Editor 1.0 http://sourceforge.net/projects/awdbedit/
CBROM 2.15 http://www.biosmods.com/download/award/cbrom215.zip



The mods are in two sections.  If you only want one or the other, just skip to that section.

FULLSCREEN LOGO

1. Make Sure the motherboard uses the Award Bios.

2. Either Download the new Bios from the Manufacturer website or get it from the system Bios directly by backing it up.  For backing up and updating bios, I use WinFlash 1.51 (there might be a newer version, I just stick with what works!).

3. Now we have the bios file on disk. Now make a new bitmap image with any of your favorite imaging software. Make sure that the final bitmap image you have created is 640*480 and 256 colors.

4. Now use the CBROM Utility to change the boot logo in the bios file.
This is done by using Command Prompt

c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /logo logo.bmp

5. Now to check whether the bios file was updated correctly. Run the Award bios editor. (make sure the dlls in the plugin directory are moved to the folder with awbedit.exe)

6. Load the bios.bin in the Award bios editor and check in the left hand list for Fullscreen Logo and that it does show your logo.  If okay your bios is now ready to be flashed.

7. Now use Winflash utility, load the bios.bin and click on update .

8. Reboot the computer and the bios logo is changed.


EPA Logo:

Procedure for the EPA logo is just same except the few things.

Image size is : 138*84 16 Colors and 72 pixels/inch

Command for adding to bios file is : c:\bios>CBROM215 bios.bin /epa epalogo.bmp

When you check for the EPA logo in the Award Bios Editor, the colors will not be same as those that you choose but when you flash the bios and reboot, it will show the original colors.


*****PRECAUTIONS*****

Never try to flash bios without a uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
Close all the programs before flashing from Windows.
ALWAYS wait for flash program to notify you for reboot, DO NOT EVER EVER reboot when you think it is ready or taking too long.  Mucking up the flash CAN MAKE YOUR MOTHERBOARD GARBAGE!!!  You have been warned!!

I hope that this helps,
Ken

Error signal ASRock P4VM800


When you open to you're bios menu, either at the top or at the bottom of the screen will be a name of you'e bios. In you're case the name is at the bottom of your bios menu. (American Megatrends Inc.). Or for short AMI You could search google for, AMI bios beep codes.
And you can click on this link, which shows what AMI say's about 3 beeps.
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/amibeep.htm

You need to test you're memory. (Only if cleaning the memory has did not change the beep error beeps).
First remove you're memory & blow out the DIMM slots with canned air. Clean the copper on the memory with house hold alcohol on a lightly dampend cotton swab. (Let it dry), (Do not touch the copper with you're fingers. Re-install you're memory.
If you have more than one DIMM. Remove the bank farthest from the CPU & boot the PC. Did you hear the 3 beeps? Remove the the next bank & re-install the one you removed first in to the slot closest to the CPU. Boot the PC, again did you hear the 3 beeps?

If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.

Good Luck!

The beep codes are not universal, but there are a few popular BIOS's and you can figure out what 2 beeps means if you can find your BIOS listed here:

The name of your BIOS should appear on the monitor as you're booting.
