You also might want to check the heat sink and fan. The shutting down part usaully indecates a heat issue with the cpu. The BIOS shuts everything down when it gets hot to prevent it from burning up (hopefully)

Depending on the beep code it could be saying there is a RAM problem or a video card problem. Check video card first & see if reseating it corrects the problem. If not try reseating the RAM. Also make sure the RAM installed is compatible with the board you are using. Have you upgraded the cpu? If so you may have used an incompatible chip or do not have it fully seated. These are the first things to check. Hope this helps.

Boards beeps 6-4-4 and nothing happens.


The manual is here:
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/se7520bd2/sb/se7520bd2_server_board_tps_r23.pdf


There is detailed troubleshooting information within the document.

6 seems like a Keyboard controller BAT test error.

It sounds though that your motherboard may be defective :( Going to have to get a new one most likely, sorry :(

Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/motherboard/motherboard_detail.php?pMODEL_NAME=AI7&fMTYPE=Socket 478&pPRODINFO=Manual

The fault could be the cpu, wrong type of ram, a faulty ram module
or a fault in the mainboard.
Check all the settings in the manual and the bios aswell.

Here is a list of beep codes:
Basic Beep Codes for ABIT AWARD BIOS Motherboards

  1. No beep at all - this means your motherboard is dead, either due to a defective or underpowered power supply, poorly seated CPU or RAM, or a dead-on-arrival board
  2. One beep - board is working fine
  3. One long beep then machine shuts down - faulty, improperly installed or missing CPU
  4. 1 short(Beep) System booting is normally
  5. 2 short(Beep) CMOS setting error
  6. 1 long - 1 short(Beep) DRAM ERROR
  7. 1 long - 2 short(Beep) Display card or monitor connected error
  8. 1 long - 3 short(Beep) Keyboard Error
  9. 1 long - 9 short(Beep) ROM Error
  10. Long(Beep) continuous DRAM isn't inserted correctly
  11. Short(Beep) continuous POWER supply has a problem
  12. A two-tone siren, generally caused by overheating or out of specification voltages
  13. Four beeps then machine shuts down. This is because this version of the BIOS will shut down your machine if no fan tachometer signal is detected on the fan header. Make sure you attach a fan to the FAN1 or FAN4 header or clear CMOS to reset to default (no checking).

take out the processor chip and clock battery along with the ram while it is disconnected from the wall outlet and wait about 5 mins. after you put it back together, if the problem persists the processor might need to be replaced or the entire motherboard its self.

Hi, what you have not tested for isolation is your power supply, re-seating of processor for 20 minutes, cmos clearing or battery removal and mother board swapping. If all your isolation seems futile the worst is the mother board.

Beeps on startup but no video and continues to have long beeps with no video


Check the the cpu, ram and video card are seated properly. If they all are, then the board is defective and will need to be replaced.

I used a vacume to clean my computer now when i press the power on the fan spins non-stop wile a steady beep every five seconds without showing anything on my monitor


This means the machine is not making it past the POST or power on self test. This is bad. This means it could be your RAM, your processor, your video card, or something isn't properly seated or connected. Please take your computer to a professional tech who is A+ certified (try to avoid the generic best buy type fix it shops for something like this). Please never try to vacuum your computer. If it needs cleaning please, please use compressed air and blow out any dust/debris in a controlled manner. Thank you and I'm sorry I don't have better news for you.

I have a DFI AM75-TC motherboard, 3beeps, no video


Hi richardbyers, three short beeps means there is a problem with your memory. (Base 64K memory failure). Unplug the power from the PC. Open the case & touch the bare metal on the case to discharge your self.
Remove the memory & reseat it. Leave the case opened & re-connect the power cord & try booting again. If you still hear three short beeps, shut the system down again as mentioned above. Gather some house hold alcohol & a couple cotton swabs. Drip a drop or two onto a cotton tip & wipe the memory's contacts, both sides & do not touch the contacts with your fingers during re-install or cleaning. Blow the memory slots out with canned air or use a clean paint brush. Insert the memory again & connect the power cord. Boot the PC. Try this first. If everything works out than good. If the problem does not clear its self let me know.

Good luck richardbyers!
