Re: Motherboard gave 3 beeps

Hi, u havnt mentioned the bios used by this motherboard. i searched for the bios on the net, but couldnt find. the error beeps depends on the bios used by the motherboard. usually 3 beeps(2short and one long) means, the video card is damaged.

Re: Motherboard gave 3 beeps

Hi, it sounds like your Ram was not seated fully the first time and has damaged the contacts. Get another stick of RAM and install that making sure it is fully seated and then try again Regards mistyman

P4VM890 - 3 long beeps

1) Son follow Anti-Static Procedures?

Ram Memory could be cr@p now if not.

To include motherboard, processor, and graphics card; IF used.

2) All power cables attached to motherboard, AND tightly?

3) AMI BIOS 2.3.1

BIOS Beep Code - 3 Beeps
Indicates Ram Memory failure.

Cracked motherboard at ram memory slots, due to too much pressure being applied to motherboard, while in computer case?

Cracked motherboard at ram memory slots due to, user inadvertently had ram memory turned around backwards; and tried to install?
(Locating Notch was not lined up with Locating Lug, in ram memory slot)

4) We all get in a hurry sometimes, and make mistakes.
(Seen those commercials? Ha!)

Is there a 'stick' of ram memory in Slot 1? (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

5) I gotta' tell ya, Fred; I think we are dealing with a Static shock issue here, or cracked motherboard.

Was working, then ram memory removed/reinstalled; and now Not working.

For additional questions please post back in a Comment.

N15235 Foxconn- when i switch the pc on everything works except there is no screen

First step, pull the RAM (all of it) and see if you get the 3 beep issue again. If you do, install one stick of memory and see if the computer comes on. If not change that stick for another, and repeat untill the computer boots or you have tried every stick of RAM. If you have tried every stick of RAM try a different slot, and repeat one stick at a time. If when you have all the memory out of the computer, it does not do the 3 beeps, then you have a possible power supply issue, or some type of damange to the motherboard. Damage to the motherboard would include but not be limited to; static discharge during cleaing or memory installation. Cable beining lossened during the process (easly fixed by making sure all cables are snug). Resistor or other component lossed or detached from motherboard.

I have included everything I could think of here. If during the steps above you find more information, please provide it and I will try to point you in a different direction.

My cpu is making 1long beep and 3 short beep sounds and not restarting.

This POST beep code usually means a RAM problem.
Try reseating your RAM module/s and reboot your computer.
Try the BIOS setting and check the RAM size, does it match the total installed RAM.
If you suspect the RAM is faulty, remove the RAM module/s and take it to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.

1st question== my friend gave me a p4vmm2 v8.1 mobo but when i turned it on it making a long one beep sound simultaneously inside ! there is no ram inserted! Is that the problem?????????? 2nd...

that's a functional motherboard you got there. The beep that you hear is an error beep for not reading a ram. Yes, you will insert a ram that is compatible with your motherboard. No you can't use that without a video card. If you've got a spare video card put it on your motherboard

Hell Krishna,

The display problem is common in all the Intel DG31GL motherboard. Please switch off the computer first. Then remove the Li-ion cell/ battery of the mother board. Replace it with new Li-ion cell/ battery.Also remove the ram of the motherboard. Insert the cell/battery in the motherboard and switch on the computer without installing the ram. After 2 to 3 beeps switch off the computer and install the ram and then switch on the computer. The display will come again.

MSI H55M-P31 board & having 2 2GB DDR3 modules and I7 Processors, installed memory on dual channel and sytem beeps 3 time and no display

Depending upon which BIOS make is installed in your computer, 3 beep means RAM fault.
Check the specification of your motherboard for the recommended RAM.
Reseat the RAM nodules in the motherboard.
Remove the RAM and get them tested at your friendly computer repair shop.

3 beep at the start

Thats a standard mother board warning...back when i built a few computers i got this all the time it meant "no Memory" or no ram chips were installed or that the memory was not compatible it should just beep three times with about a second delay in between each beep...then thats your problem...your ram might be dead! if it has 3 short beeps and boots up fine it could just be a start up beep i know of older computers beeping quickly 3 times before booting....though ive never delt with asus boards only Intel. but i doubt it would be much different
hope this helps,ben

3 beeps on boot no screen and boot stops

sounds like the motherboard trying to give you an error code. search beep codes for the type of motherboard you have and then you will get a possible cause of the interruption.

my friend once gave me an old ibm that had a beeping sound preventing it from booting. i googled ibm beep codes and learned that it was a video card error. i swapped the video card and problem solved
