Hello Carlos,

Did you open the powersupply and check? I have recently worked on a PC with a similar fault and I found that the circuit board is partly charred and couple of capacitors leaking. I advice that you check it and post back..( I can't forget that repair coz I got one hell of a shock while working on it)

Sai.

Hello here is the homepage:

You have probably connected the +12 volt 4 pin, connector wrong.
The pci-e graphic connector, sometimes fit here.
When this happends the mainboard will not boot up.
Try to read the manual for the power supply.

Good luck

I am not sure if you have tried this, but take one stick of ram put it in the first slot. Try to boot if it beeps or not, power down and move to the next slot with the same chip (we are assuming this is a good ram chip). Repeat for every slot on the computer. If you have 1 or 2 slots that beep and the rest do not; bad slot on the mother board. If all slots beep, try a different chip (bad ram??). If no slots beep, repeat steps with each individual ram chip (you could have just one or two bad and causing all the issues).

Hope this helps

1. Along beep on a motherboard indicates something is connected backward such a a fan or a data cable to the hard drive.
If it is the hard drive cable then you must have pin 1 connector turn around and therefore the mother board is giving a warning.
2. You may have a power supply failure that is the power supply is not giving proper voltage to the mother board.
3. Your ram chip is not properly seated in the RAM slot or in backwards.
4. The CMOS battery to the mother board need to be replaced.

I have a zebronics mother board with intel 845 chip. Now whem i power on that it give long beep and no disply,RAM is ok, then what i can do?


Hi ieb_amit,

Typically a long single beep indicates that your display adapter or card is bad. If you haven't put in a new graphics card, then I might suggest doing so, to eliminate the beep.

Good Luck

Hi, Computer does not start. "F" is displayed on Abit A17 GURU motherboard.


Here is my flow chart.
So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you are the victim of a bad BIOS flash, don't freak there are some options. First off, if the computer (or motherboard) is still under warranty the Computer (or motherboard) can be sent to the Vendor for a BIOS reprogramming.
If you are a DIY PC builder and the warranty is expired you can take out the bios chip and sent it someone who reprograms BIOS chips or you can buy a brand new chip form them. I will show you my people.

For non-BIOS issues:

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

If the Powersupply checks out ok, then you will have to do a process of elimination to find out what part or parts are the culprit of the No-Boot.

Start by pulling all the ram sticks if you have not already. This is the easiest components to check and usually a culprit.

Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

If it is not the RAM, you have to continue removing items such as sound cards, un-plugging hard drives and optical drives, other PCI cards. Do this one at a time until you find the culprit. If a POST screen, meaning you can see Anything from the PC brand name to Motherboard brand name appearing on the screen.

Problem on Boot


Hello tccat1,

Definitley sounds like a bad motherboard, however, try removing the memory and using a different stick if you have some. Maybe 512 see if you can at least get it to post.

One long beep.


  1. Leave the memory slot closest to the processor empty and try booting again. Award bios 1 long beep is memory error as the first 64K of the ram stick closest to th processor is accessed first. since you have tried different ram in different locations, let's rule out the board.
  2. If that doesn't solve anything try a different power supply. Sometimes (Phoenix) gives a long beep when system board or power supply are bad.
  3. Now if nothing else has worked it is probably tour mother board.

Reboots at different times, some times windows logo is grayed out and hangs


its is possible that you have some bad memory search & download a program called memcheck 1.70 or later, and either put it on a formated floppy or burn onto a cd ,make sure that the boot sequence in the bios is set to go to that drive first
the pc will boot into this program and will keep running untill you stop it,if their are any errors it will show up ,you will need to establish what memory chip it is, if you have more than one chip.

it could also be a power supply, supplying iregular voltage.

also xp requires at LEAST 256 mbs to run badly, more is better.so if you are using less than 256 mbs it will be the problem.

check that your display card is seeted properly and your ram,if you have two ram chips remove the chip in socket no.1 and replace it with the other chip.
