Question about EliteGroup P4VXASD (P4VXASD-R) Motherboard

1 Answer

Wont boot For a while it would not boot XP until I reset two or three times. One short beep but no windows until I reset or turn off and on again. I changed the RAM and power Supply. Now I get three long beeps and nothing.

Re: Wont boot

Seems contagious mine did the same thing!not sure how helpful this will be but the bios handles the starting up part and if it's corrupt then that wont happen.If you can get the bios flash that you need onto a floppy then that might help at the moment I'm waiting for a new bios chip.Did you receive any errors at all ?awdflash.exe? insert disc etc ?

Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 short beep codes on cold boot. Tried reseating RAM, didn't help. system runs fine after beeping stops

Using the manual for the Gigabyte GA-945P-S3 MB. Go to page 71 & you'll see bios beep codes for your board: AWARD BIOS Beep Codes 1 short: System boots successfully 2 short: CMOS setting error 1 long 1 short: DRAM or M/B error 1 long 2 short: Monitor or display card error 1 long 3 short: Keyboard error 1 long 9 short: BIOS ROM error Continuous long beeps: DRAM error Continuous short beeps: Power error As you can see there isn't a code for three short beeps. When you boot your system try to pause your boot up screen. See if the bios is reporting the correct total of memory in your system. Bios codes from the link below. 3 beeps for the AMI bios code reports Base 64K RAM failure. You can test your memory. Go to Scroll down the site to just under the three screen shots. Download Memtest86+ V2.11 You have a choice in making a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD-ROM disk. Once completed you boot your system to the testing program. Memtest will check your system memory. This should help. Thanks for using FixYa! Mike

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!

Pc turns on when i plug it in but won t boot and won t turn off

Reset the CMOS to defaults. Since it is not actually booting properly you will have to jumper it. Hopefully you have the manual and you need to look at the layout and find what jumpers need to be shorted to reset

Wont boot

I think there is a problem with the pin connection of the RAM. Remove the RAM again, then clean the pin with the contact cleaner spray then plug in again. do same thing with the CPU/processor if necessary. if you got One short beep when boot windows the problem haven't from hardware but on your system. try to run scandisk, disk cleanup, or press F8 while booting to go into "safe mode". Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.
