Hi...

Try cleaning the contact point of the memory modules "with a pencil eraser" and insert them back... Clean also the Processor heat sink if dusty... Then check the voltage of the CMOS (3V) battery it maybe dead, if so you need to replace that with the same type.
Keep me posted if still does not work...

Happy fixya...

When i boot up the computer it starts beeping immediately, otherwise boots just fine


The beeps are part of the boot sequence, more normally called the post report. The beeps length and number usually indicate a problem.

Check with the abit website, you need the post sequence for your motherboard.

Usually, with a post report, you get a single beep which means everything is tickety boo.

When I boot, it rarely passes the POST screen , it freezes or when I try to boot a cd or the Os installed on the machine it ,either, partially loads it and freezes or just freezes without loading anything....


Since you have tried all the other components (btw this is the correct way of diagnosing a failing hardware, congratulations) the only thing left is the motherboard - you must replace it, it's dying.

Abit av8 bios post codes 8.3 - 8.6 - 9.c What is failing on boot ? I get one long beep followed by 4 short beeps. I have swapped video cards and reflashed the bios with no help. If I reboot 2 or 3...


I still did not find beep code that match your problem..

Anyways here are the common beep codes for your motherboard.. it might help you too.
1. No beep - no reaction, the mother board is dead, power supply problem, processor and or ram problem.
2. 1beep - board is working fine.
3. One long beep then it shuts down - cpu problem, your processor is not working or missing.
4. 1short beep - system boots normally
5. 2short beeps - CMOS setting error.
6. 1long 1short beep - dram error
7. 1long 2 short beep - video card or monitor not connected
8. 1long 3 short beep - keyboard error.
9. 1long 9short beep - ROM error
10. Long beep - memory card is missing or not connected
11. Short beep - power supply error
12 Four beeps - there is no fan detected on Fan1 or Fan2 header. make sure to attach or reset CMOS bios to factory setting.


Hope this gave you an idea of your problem..

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..

Makes loud alarm sound when it is booting up and scrolls up on its own


Hello there lmitche4.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Is the sound you're describing a "beep"/tone? In all likelihood it's yes. At bootup, beeps codes occur if the motherboad/BIOS encounters any error during the POST (Power-On-Self-Test) sequence. Unless just one single beep (all is well), these beeps alert you about, and to the nature of, a problem in need investative/corrective actions on your part.

Refer here and/or here for an index of beep-codes, then determine which beep sequence you're hearing. You'll first need to know which BIOS you have installed. You can determine this quite easily by hitting the "Pause/Break" key on your keyboard in order to freeze the screen at the initial part of bootup when this info is typically displayed.

Good luck, and please do post back to ...
  • to let me (and interested others) know how things worked out,
  • to provide clarification or feedback,
  • if you have ANY further questions.
