SOURCE: Computer powering up

It looks like your mother board is old one. If so clean it with IPA solution (Iso propyl alcohol). Replace the processor.Then try again. You can also try changing your Video card. That can cause problems if not seated properly. If nothing works get your motherboard serviced.

SOURCE: Biostar motherboard or processor dead?

Unplug hard drive, no beeps? Unplug CD-ROM, no beeps? Remove RAM, no beeps? 85% it's the MOBO. Static, surge or just plain dead (and cheap).

SOURCE: power won't turn off

If i understand you correctly, you are saying that you have a single beep repeating over and over with nothing showing on the monitor and no other response from your computer? The single long beep in a loop is an Award Bios beep code for a faulty CPU. This problem is not mentioned on the official website of the manufacturer. Unfortunately your only option is to replace the CPU. You might try removing and re-seating the cpu making sure you have proper cooling measures in place. Hope that helps!

Power light flashes but PC will not boot up following power outage


First off: Protection is important and the ONLY way to go is with a UPS (Battery backup protector). These devices allow the computer to SLOWLEY close down and protect the motherboard and hard drives. Simple bar protectors are of little to no use whatsoever. As for the Start UP; the Boot Sector on the Hard Drive has been compromised. If you attempted to start with the F8 key when you started up the computer and failed to Boot in the Safe Mode, you definitely lost the operating system.
You can try to do a Restore, but that may not be effective.
When a Computer starts, there is usually a Beep (called a Post) and one Beep indicates the motherboard is active. Several beeps indicate a mal-function of the motherboard and it was damaged. In some cases, the Memory (RAM) can be damaged from electrical surge, and thus the computer will not start and the monitor will not be active. Do not touch the internal leads as they are not the problem. In closing, a CPU is very sensitive to power surge and the CPU in some cases can be defective. All in all, with so may options or repair issues; only a professional has the equipment to search for the solution. Good luck: DaytonComputerDoctor@hotmail.com

I have DELL DIMENSION 9100 SERIES, in the last couple of days i am unable to reboot it using the restore boot sequence, which i tried in vain with no results. What i am getting is it has gone into...


Good probability that the motherboard or other component were damaged in the surge
See if you can boot to Safe mode (F8 at boot) if not then see if you can boot to a WIndows CD
If the system is not completing POWER on testing then check this information

No sound


If you cannot adjust the volume, your sound driver is not installed. Download the driver from this site. or here http://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdownloads.asp?model=K8VGA-M

Browse to the "audio" section and download the driver. Afterwards, just execute and install the driver.

MSI P6NGM won't BOOT


You should only hear 1 beep. That 1 beep is power on self test, known as P.O.S.T.
That loud flat line sound (And I'm pretty sure about this), was you're CPU. Just because you ran & passed the stressed test is nothing compared to running the system under load? That's why when you put in you other memory nothing changed. If you hadn’t mentioned you clocked up the FSB I would have come to the same conclusion hearing the loud flat line statement.
Can you test the CPU in another board? That is about the only way to be sure it's not the CPU. Memory does not make that kind of sound. Memory makes short & long beeps.
You can try clearing the cmos/bios by going to pg. 2-18 in you're user manual. This will reset the bios back to default settings & cross you're fingers!

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

Good Luck!

Long Beeps every other second


Ok, I did some research into your board. Your motherboard is running an award bios. All motherboards use beep codes to tell you what is wrong. You've got a hardware problem somewhere for sure, but where is the question. If you're having 1 long beep, with the same timing and frequency over and over then according to the codes you most likely have a memory problem. Try resetting the motherboard by resetting the cmos ( you can also do this by removing the power from the computer and taking the little clock battery off of the motherboard for about a minute). Also, make sure your ram is tightly seated. In fact, take the ram out and then place it back in. Try running the computer with only one of the chips of ram installed (if you have more than 1 chip that is). Maybe one of the chips went bad. Finally, here is a list of the award beep codes. If you are getting beeps that match one of these examples better than we can go from there. 1 Long, 2 Short - Video adapter failure Repeating (Endless loop)- Memory error 1 Long, 3 Short - Video adapter failure High freq. beeps (while running) - CPU is overheating Repeating High, Low beeps- CPU failure
