Question about EliteGroup K7S5A Pro Motherboard

2 Answers

I get a series of about 8 beeps when I turn on

K7S5A mobo produces a series of about 8 beeps when I turn on power, no display. The user manual provides no clue what the beeps mean. Any hints would be appreciated. I've checked the memory and all connections.

    Thanks. Keyboard lights go on when power turned on, then keyboards lights off and stay off, no blinks. So this is a dead processor? My PSU died, got a new PSU, now this problem. Sigh. I'll swap out mobo and processor, since other mobo did not have the beep problem. Thanks.

    Well, I didn't really believe this was a CPU problem since the CPU was ok before the PSU died. I replaced the CPU and the memory, now new problem. First there are 2 beeps, then 8 beeps, then long pause, then 2 beeps, then 1 beep. Allegedly the beep codes are different for different manufacturers, yet ECS K7S5A manual provides no clue. Any hints what all these beeps mean?

    I swapped out the mobo, but 2nd mobo was a used beast, did not remember BIOS settings and not boot the drive. After replacing the onboard battery, the #2 board now does nothing, no beeps, no display.

    Well, in the Tips section of this web site there's a posting of what
    the beep codes mean (which is appreciated, HUGE). The K7S5A uses AMI
    BIOS, and according to the FixYa Tips, 8 beeps indicates a problem with
    display adapter. Your suggestion that 8 beeps was a CPU problem or mobo
    chip problem was not helpful, since it sent me on a wild goose chase to
    get another CPU. BTW, the 8 beeps was observed with the new PSU. The
    good news is something else has failed. Problem now is no beeps, ie,
    the mobo appears to be dead. My K7S5A mobo worked very well for many
    years, no problems until this strange situation. Time for change.

You need to make sure the CPU is seated properly. Sounds like you have a bent pin on your CPU.

I hope this helps

usually 8 beeps means that the issue with the mainboard chips as well as processor.When u turn on the machine then check for the blinking of the lights on k/b if they are blinking then processor is fine and issue with board.

    This was not the final solution and I was waiting for the response.If the PSU is not working how will we sure that the mb is faulty because if there is no power so any light will not blink so please change the power supply and then check I dont thisk there will be any issue with CPU the only issue might be with MB and it will get confirmed by tapping num lock after powering on if lights are blinking in kb once means the CPU is fine please confirm and revert.

CPU fan & PSU fan working but No display coming to the screen

There should be some sort of beeps then. No beeps is an indication the CPU or RAM is not seated properly. You need to refer to board manual if there are beeps.
There is also the matter of... Never mind I just noticed the CPU is an 8 core CPU, but the board supports quad core.

Double check my findings and go from there. Good Luck

Long beeps is normally a sign of bad ram. So its not a show stopper. Turn it over and normally the RAM is under the smallest plate. If you can try taking one stick out at a time you may be able to tell if only one is bad or both, if you have more than one. But regardless, buy some new ram, install and all will be good again.

I am working on a friends computer and he has a k7s5a pro Mobo..

Maybe it requires DDR2 or DDR3 RAM. As it is there are only 2 DIMM slots, so check the FSB. If it does not match asper the manual then you might need to replace the RAM with the appropriate one....sodeep

Hi Binny2, this sounds like a power issue & not a possible graphics card issue.
You can try a couple of things.
Use only one DIMM of memory, not both at first. Try booting system, check for display & POST beep………. No?
Clear your cmos, see page 23 in manual.
Next, see page 17 in your manual for, 8-pin ATX_12V Power Connector for CPU: "PWR2".
(Also see: “Note” at bottom of page 17). This MB needs both 8-pin ATX 12v connectors, connected. It is not recommended to drop down to a 4-pin 12v connection as shown on page 17.
You may need one or two of these power connectors:

Good luck Binny2!
Still no system beep?
Let me know. What size is your current power supply wattage?
Happy holidays!

II have a K7S5A Pro motherboard. The sound has stopped. I strongly believe the driver for the sound was accidently deleted during a disk cleanup. I have downloaded/installed a driver which was recomended...

Wasent easy to find the drivers for your MoBo:)
There are two different sound drivers to that MoBo,

Now, follow the link above, go to site 2, there u see 2 different sound drivers, non of them is like that one you instaled but both are for your MoBo. I dont know witch one fits your MoBo so download them both and try them.

Thi link goes to the manufacrure of your MoBo, so hopfully one of the drivers will work.

Good luck to you

Try another power supply. I believe you would have this problem if your 4-pin connector from the power supply is not connected to the board. Of cause, you might have a defective board.
